Tower Model

15 Hours and the Lego Tower Bridge Can Help You Create a Masterpiece

There are Lego play sets and there are Lego collectors and building sets. The latter sets are designed for people 14 and older, who are serious about model building and are not looking to put together a once built design that is used for imaginative play. Instead, Lego seeing the extreme interest of hobbyist model building – has created a series of model sets that replicate archaeological landmarks from around the world. One of these is the Lego Tower Bridge, which is a perfectly scaled model of the Tower Bridge in London, England.

The structure is immense, and is full of intricate detail that can make recreating it with Legos a difficult endeavor at best. The makers of Lego estimate that it takes about 15 hours for an experienced builder to assemble this model. The Lego Tower Bridge is a hydraulic bridge bound by two towers that is designed to enable large boats and other watercraft to pass underneath. The Lego replicate model, leaves no detail of the original architecture out an even includes all the wiring and intricate design pieces used in the original structure.

The Lego Tower Bridge has nearly 5,000 pieces. Some of these pieces are extremely small and requires a lot of dexterity and patience to put together, which is precisely why this is part of the model series of Lego products. While an instruction book is included, experience is also necessary to accomplish this build.

Lego recommends that people interested in scaled model building start the building process by organizing their pieces. One of the easiest ways to do this is to initially sort out the pieces into several different bags or bins so that you can accomplish the build one structure at a time. Additionally, since the finished product is so large and amazing – it is recommended that builders allow ample space for the building process.

The Lego Tower Bridge, when complete is about 17 inches high and 40 inches long. The drawbridge, if completed properly will rise just like the physical structure in England. And in order to create authenticity, the set includes both a double decker bus and a taxi cab that are mainstays in the English transportation scene.

This Lego builders set is just one in a long series of architectural model sets introduced by Lego. All of the products are replicates of architecture around the world. Some of the other Lego architect series sets are the the Robie House, the Farnsworth House, The Burj Khalifa, Brandenburg Gate, Rockefeller Center, Willis Tower and The White House. Each of these sets includes thousands of pieces and has striven to not leave any details of the original architecture out of the build. While Lego recommends these sets for ages 14 and over, with assistance younger model builders will be sure to find these a fascinating and stimulating (as well as intellectual) build that will unleash creativity and architectural savvy.
