Building Independence Hall- Give Me Your Color Suggestions!

Hi All,

I'm undertaking a building project to construct Independence Hall. I've got just about everything sorted out except for what color to use, so I was hoping I could get your input!

Obviously, the white/black/grey parts of the building are easy to figure out. What about the rest, what's your opinion? Reddish brown? Brown? Red? Sand green?

Let me know your thoughts! Your input would mean a lot, I can't seem to decide on what to pick.

Samuel

    I'm seeing sand red and sand green in your future. Maybe even dark red too.

    Are you also seeing me winning the lottery in the future to pay for all of those pieces?

    Why do I think you should put a haystack beside it and have a white dressed minifig w a hoodie jump off its top?

    Jang built an entire Hell out of sand red, you can do a building Sam!

    This building is one of those weird colours for Lego, it's kind of in between dark red and reddish brown, but lighter. I think I would almost go dark orange like Town Hall, or maybe even medium dark flesh - I don't know what brick selection looks like in that colour though.

    I'd go for dark orange too, but it's a difficult choice. Looks like a nice challenge! Good luck!

    maybe build it like fire brigade. combination of red and dark red tiles (mostly red I guess) and grey or white headlight bricks.

    My mind was set on Dark Orange and then I saw the cost estimate...

    Reddish brown it is!

    Thanks for the input everyone. :)

    I don't blame you, given the scale of the build and the colour you wanted to do would have been a HUGE expense. Sometimes it just makes sense financially to tweak the colour even if it is not true to the original building or concept. We found when we were doing our Police station that the sand blue colour we wanted to use was a killer on cost and so have to limit where we could use it. Also because of the colour, whilst LDD let me use it , some of the bricks were either not available ( damn you LDD !! ) or were so expensive that some parts of our build would have been £30 for a small amount of the build. Just does not make sense. Looking forward to your build when you finish it
