A magnificent white & pink skyscraper, standing 5'9" without its antenna.
About this creation
Pricey Tower II is the skyscraper that replaced the original Pricey Tower (16 storeys). It consists of a high-vaulted foyer (3 storeys tall) and 19 storeys on top; 15 are 32-wide and 4 are 16-wide. A machine room tops off the building itself at 5'9" or so.
The antenna adds about an extra 19" (or it did, at its debut at one of NELUG's largest displays, at the Amherst Railway Show in Jan 2018) making the overall height approx 7'4".
NEW: JAN 2019: The foyer is now fully furnished and LIT! The left-hand side is a bar area; the middle is the hotel check-in desk with divided stairway rising above; the right is a pool / icehockey games area complete with vending machine and pool rack. Each side of the foyer is a patio area currently populated by ostriches on one side and panda bears on the other. Nobody quite knows why.
It took about two months of on-and-off building to craft - started Nov 2017, finished with 4 days to go in Jan 2018.
Why pink? Well, that's because I acquired two cases of pink brick (one 1x2 - [about 2,600 pcs], one 1x4 [about 1,300 pcs]) so had a substantial amount to work with. In fact, the building used all except about 10 of those bricks, with about 500 1x1 bought from BrickLink. There are over 950 trans black pieces in the distinctive 10-storey high "flash" up the side of the building.
