I first got the idea to build a Red and Tan Skyscraper a couple of years ago after building a number of MOC's for my daughter to play with I figured it was time to build something for myself. I became inspired to commence building it during the 2010/2011 Holiday Season after a couple of business trips to New York, Chicago and L.A. in the fall of 2010. Seeing the architecture in those grand cities can inspire anyone!
It just keeps growing and taking on a life of its own as nearly all of the MOC's I've built have. It's become too tall for the base so I now need to rebuild the base a bit wider to keep it stable.
Now that spring has arrived and summer is on the way, I may have to postpone the rest of the build until the fall rainy weather arrives once again here in The San Francisco Bay Area.
