Welcome to The Rock!
That’s right, I’ve constructed a medium scale model of the world famous Alcatraz Island. Alcatraz Island has a long history, but is mostly known as the world’s most secure prison from 1934 to 1963. Today, it’s a tourist attraction, a national landmark and has even been called one of the most “haunted” places In America.
This model features many of Alcatraz’s prominent landmarks including:
The Main Prison
The Dining Hall
The Water Tower
Model Industries Building
The Power House
New Industries Building
And the Warden’s House
I started work on this model before set 21043 San Francisco was announced which includes a micro scale model of Alcatraz, but I decided to continue as this is a more detailed model that I believe will appeal to a wide variety of people including people that like architecture, islands, California, history or just want a cool set for their shelf.
This set contains just under 2000 pieces and sits on eight 32 x 32 baseplates. The buildings with windows should be able to be lit up with lights (8870) and battery box (8878).
Hope to have your support and if you really like it share with your friends.
