My Room With A View..NYC :)



Just wanted to share my own models....I started this hobby when I was 15 years old!!! so I have been doing this for a loooong time!!

The tallest tower (the old WTC which is under construction) is about 25 inches tall..and pretty much all in scale....all my models are fron NYC only, past and present and all 100% made by me from paper, plastic and small pieces of metal!

some are still "under construction" LOL

Enjoy!!!

C.V.


couldn't resist "sunset" artisitc photo!!






































I'll take more pics when I build more...

Awesome! A piece of art.

You made lots of classics like 20 Exchange, Woolworth, American International, Metropolitan, Park Row and Chanin. I'd like to make those too one day.

On the second picture you can see through the Chanin. Does it mean the model has real windows?!

Amazing!

Do you ever sell them or charge people to view them or donate them to some city model builders?
