Taipei 101 Microscale Skyscraper

Name of Model: Taipei 101, Taipei Taiwan
Created by: Spencer R
Found at: and
This skyscraper is deceptive - at first glance, it looks like a far larger masterpiece - it's so detailed that you'll have to find the little people and trees in order to get a grasp on the model's scale. This skyscraper is also a great reproduction of the Taipei 101 tower in Taiwan (which has been the tallest building in the world since it was completed in 2004). The details here are brilliant, and the colors and parts uses are perfect (apparently quite a few special pieces were ordered specially so that this model could be made). The LEGO® version takes up a grey 15x15 baseplate and stands .8 meters tall. This puts it at roughly a scale of 1:636.5. There are some small concessions that were made to simplify the design, but I'll let you read the builder's account of that.
This is Saturday's model of the day
