Product Description:

This book inspired me to get my old LEGOS® down from the attic! If you've always dreamed of making LEGO® models of famous landmarks, this book is for you. It's filled with magnificent color photos of intricate LEGO® structures, representing famous places from around the world. Author Warren Elsmore tells about his start in building iconic LEGO® models and expounds on how they're built. He gives an overview of the most ten useful LEGO® bricks and discusses considerations in planning scale, details, colors and bricks to be used, and more. He tells how Computer-Aided Design (CAD) programs can be used to thoroughly plan models before they're built. Step-by-step instructions (with numbered diagrams) show how to make mini-models at home. Some of these mini-models include: a New York yellow cab, a London red phone box, and Rome's Trevi Fountain. And my, what inspiration is contained in these pages! It includes everything from little on-the-street scenes with instructions on how to recreate them yourself, to photos of massive replicas built by professional LEGO® modelers. Before long, you'll be mastering the art of LEGO® free-modeling, putting together these landmarks from all over the world: Paris, New York City, Seoul, Rome Shanghai, and many more. Or you could build Nelson's Column, the Sagrada Familia, or the Colosseum. Though directions aren't included for the largest models, don't be surprised if you come away from this book with all the knowledge you need to start creating your own mega-models! It also includes two pull-out posters showcasing St. Pancras Station and the World Trade Center. 256 pgs, semi-hardcover. Chad
