London Big Ben - Painted Medium (20 cm) Big Ben Landmark Model, Collectable Souvenir
About this deal
Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London though today the name also refers to the clock and the clock tower. Built in 1859, it is located on the River Thames in London and is known as the world-famous Gothic building. However it was an extremely realistic model, no one would have noticed if it had been used, so I wonder if it ever was, and what happened to it. So I spent the boring hours up to midnight lining up a shot with two cameras and a split screen to provide a more realistic, off centre shot. As well as the tower itself you get a selection of characters associated with it, such as Winston Churchill, a policeman, a punk and someone who bears an uncanny resemblance to Boris Johnson.
We keyed the aeroplanes over the face of Big Ben, to the annoyance of Isobel McDonald, our network director next door. The three models did not move with it and received folklore is that they were donated back to the BBC – current location unknown, I’m afraid. On June 2, 2012, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Elizabeth II’s throne accession, Big Ben was officially renamed as Elizabeth Tower. It became fully operational on September 7th, 1859 and is today one of the most prominent symbols of London standing at 316 feet high. As one of London’s iconic buildings, Big Ben is part of the British Parliament building and the largest clock in the UK.Whether it's a timeless keyring showcasing iconic London landmarks or a special gift for your dad on Father’s Day - our team is dedicated to ensuring that all experiences are nothing short of exceptional.
