World Trade Center - The online computery journal thingy of a turtle

03:59 pm - World Trade Center
Today is September 11. Instead of burning a Quran, or indeed any religious text, or indeed any book, or indeed anything at all (except my toast; d'oh!), I decided to create something.
Here's a Lego model, that I designed and built, of the World Trade Center towers. Note the telecommunications antenna on the top of the North Tower, and the fountain in the plaza. (You can't see the sculpture in the middle of the fountain, because at this scale it would be the size of a grain of sand.)
On the other side, you can see the Marriott World Trade Center nestled between the bases of the two towers. The diagonal part of the building is attached to the base by a single stud at the outer end.
