Microscale Brookings Hall

Name of Model: Brookings Hall
Created by: Nannan Z.
Found at:
Details: As part of a series of gifts to people who work for his alma mater, Nannan Z. created this microscale rendition of Brookings Hall, a distinctive structure on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis. While this is a rather simple model by construction, the colors used make it a challenging thing to try building - the main color here is that new color that only appears in the Prince of Persia kits so far. Since only 14 parts have ever been sold in that color, it can be quite a challenge to figure out how to get the desired shape. Throw in two more fairly rare colors - sand green for the roof and dark tan for the ground - and suddenly this becomes a bit more challenging to try to create. Fortunately, the end result is a fairly accurate likeness.

If you look a few photos back in Nannan's flickr photostream, you can see the other four photos of this model and also take a look at some of the other models he has recently made as teacher gifts (most of which make great use of custom engraving to personalize LEGO bricks).
