July 18, 1887 Eiffel Tower

Eiffel tower

Andrew’s blast from the past reminded me to check my own list and I discovered that I hadn’t blogged this masterpiece. Steven Marshall makes use of his design talents and, I suspect, the TLG rendering libraries to present this excellent virtual recreation of the Eiffel Tower under construction. It’s really, really, really excellent.

    Wow I noted this one a few weeks ago on Brickshelf but, I had no idea it was a rendered image. What a wonderful accomplishment from the construction right down to the washed out feel of an old over exposed photo. I love when studs are suddenly passable rivets. The contrast between the massive supporting peer and the flimsy ladder drives home the challenge building the tower. Masterpiece for sure.
