A wheely great tower

Builder Sarah Beyer built this model for one of New Elementary’s fantastic parts exploration articles, which challenge builders to use newly released LEGO elements in interesting ways. The microscale tower employs the hubcap element from the James Bond Aston Martin DB5. The center stud allows the parts to be stacked neatly, and the edges of the spokes bring a fascinating texture that implies intricate detail on each level of the tower. It’s a great reminder to break outside the box of using LEGO elements for their intended purposes.
