This picture from CBS' Tampa affiliate WTSP shows The Greater Florida LEGO Train Club's detailed model that includes the most recognizable landmarks in downtown including 100 North Tampa, Bank of America Plaza, One Tampa City Center, Rivergate Tower, Park Tower, SunTrust Financial Center, Tampa City Hall, Northern Trust Bldg., Wells Fargo Building, the Police Dept., the Tampa Convention Center and The Element -- with the entire layout detailed with roads, landscaping, traffic signals -- and much more.

TAMPA, Fla. - Downtown Tampa's best-known structures have been replicated in an elaborate LEGO display.

The Greater Florida Lego Users Group project features City Hall and many other buildings. The LEGOs also depict the boats moored behind the Tampa Convention Center, buildings with rooftop gardens, satellite dishes, helipads and wind socks.

Thomas Greaney admired the display in the lobby of a building. He told the Tampa Tribune that those who created the display out of LEGOs "obviously had a good fell for the downtown to be able to replicate it as well as they did."

The group says on its website that the Downtown Tampa Display has been an ongoing project since 2005. It will be on display through Sept. 27.
