How to display massive LEGO sets
For many people LEGO building is a hobby that can be very addictive and many people take great pride in their creations particularly when building a challenging model. However, the problem people often have is finding somewhere to store their masterpiece once they have finished.
LEGO experts Marc and Timothy advise that you should align your sets with the style of your room, so that it matches the aesthetic. If your home is minimalistic the Eiffel Tower may be the stylistic statement that the room needs.
Many people see lego sets as a piece of art around the house and it can be very good to show them off in an area which is not cluttered. Putting it in a focal area can be a good idea if you are wanting to show your masterpiece to friends and family. Furthermore you can also enhance minor details by placing a mirror behind your LEGO set or using an LED light to make the most of your display.
History of the Eiffel Tower
The Eiffel Tower was first constructed in 1889 in Paris and initially received criticism for its design by France’s leading artists and intellectuals. However, over the years it has become a global cultural icon of France and is viewed as one of the most recognisable buildings in the world. More than 250 million people are believed to have visited the towers since its construction and it remains one of the most well known tourist attractions.
During its construction the Eiffel Tower surpassed the Washington Monument as the tallest human-made structure in the world and this was a title that it held for nearly 41 years until 1930 when the Chrysler Building in New York was built.
