Description of the Lego Set 21043 San Francisco
The, 2019 released, set "San Francisco" from the Architecture series continues the Skyline series. Skyline should not be taken literally here, however. As in the other Skyline models, Skyline in this case refers to the style of presentation. Striking buildings and sights are arranged in the style of a skyline. For San Francisco, of course, the Golden Gate Bridge immediately comes to mind, which consequently also takes up a not insignificant part of the model. Directly below is the notorious prison island Alcatraz. On the left side is the city. In the foreground the "Painted Ladies", behind them you can see the typical hilly landscape with cablecars. In the last row, from left to right: 555 California Street, Bank of America Pyramid and Salesforce Tower.
In 3 sections the skyline finally takes shape. Section one deals of course with the "foundation". Here you can already see that the construction techniques used are sometimes unusual. But this way the desired microscale is achieved wonderfully.
In section two the buildings on the left are built, without abundant use of Snot (Stud not on top) bricks this would hardly be possible and offers also for already experienced Lego fans suggestions and ideas for own conversions.

The highlight, the Golden Gate Bridge, has been saved for the finale. Many new parts in Dark Red are used to build a simple bridge, but still corresponding to the original. It's a pity that the piers are not built on both sides. Due to the Salesforce Tower the base plate protrudes to the back without, there could have been a row of studs for the pillars.
Conclusion to the Lego Set 21043 San Francisco
The result is nevertheless impressive and should be an enrichment for every fan of microscale, architecture and last but not least for all those who have an association with San Francisco.
