Never having been to London, I’ve always equated Big Ben with the center of this British capital situated next to The House of Commons and at one time the center of the entire British Empire. First and foremost, I never knew that the clock was on four sides of the tower. Upon the final pieces of construction I was surprise the clock face all four directions.
The construction of this model was to me the easiest of the three I’ve done so far. The other two being The Brandenburg Gate and the White House were far more complex than Big Ben. The building of this structure was somewhat straight forward and at times very repetitious. In fact while constructing this edifice I found a certain rhythm in which I started work at 7:45PM and completed my work at 10:00PM.
The completed structure was very realistic and to me showed off the attributes of true architecture which displayed is a pleasure to see. To me, this structure reaffirms my testament as to the true realism and joy of construction of these precise models of true great architecture. I will continue to purchase other models to add to my collection. This to me represents a project which gives me a sense of accomplishment and an education in the minds of the great architects of the world.
