Hanzie's Models

Welcome to my thread friend,

Firstly, I'm not trying to be rude, but I will not take requests, nor collaborate.
I simply wanted to create a page to allow others the chance to build my models, as so many of you have done (which I have enjoyed greatly).

The majority of my models will be from New York City; But I may do some from Boston, Baltimore, Wilmington or Philly being that those are the cities that have personal meaning to me.

I only have Paint to work with, so these models will not be anywhere near the detail of many models on here, but I've done one thus far and I admit I am quite proud of it!

Please don't expect a new model every day, week, maybe even month... I am a college student with 35 hour work weeks and spend a considerable amount of time building your models, so when one of mine pops up, please don't hound me for another and just enjoy what I can do. I wouldn't have spent time creating this thread if I didn't want others to enjoy my models.

I have not tried to use Rei's scale yet, I may in the future but I'm just eying the buildings for now.

Lastly, I can build a computer from scratch, but I have no idea how to do certain things like posting pictures in posts (or make a damn avatar for my account), so until I figure that out, I'm just going to post links to the models on my photobucket account.



Without further hesitation my first model is the Ramada Renaissance Hotel in Times Square. I just realized I never included a base for the model since I have a sheet of sidewalk looking terrain that I just cut off pieces for most bases. If you feel inclined to make a base for it, or modify it in any way please feel free (this model and any future models). Please just post what you do, as I would love to see your creativity!

Hi CNTower! Thank you for the greetings!

I assumed the mountain looking picture allows us to post pictures on the page, however I don't know where to find a url for the image. Is that from online, or can I get it from my pictures folder on my computer?

I've never done this before, took me a couple tries, I couldn't find anything that said properties when I right clicked the image. I'll try to remember what to do for future posts haha. I also tried to delete the blank post, no luck though.

Thank you for the heads up! I did end up finding the [IMG] link, I had to get it by viewing the image from the album instead of the image directly. I actually got a URL from going into the image info, but when i posted it that is what caused the blank post. Either way its all good now! Thank you again!

Thank you, I'm glad you like it! Like I said in my first post though, I'm pretty much eying my models, so its not an exact science. I'm not going to call it 1/1700 scale, but i found that when i printed it at 65% using page set up in Microsoft Paint, it comes out to scale compared to my other models, all of which I print at 75% to make sure they fit entirely on a piece of paper. I'm not going to modify what I have now or anytime soon to make sure it absolutely is 1/1700, but if you feel inclined to by all means go right ahead.

Use this:

Just drag it into MS Paint, go to skyscraperpage.com, choose the building you want, and draw it to scale. That's how I do it.

Thank you, I do have Rei's scale already saved to my models file, like I said though, I have no plans to mess with making it completely accurate for the time being though. I'm going to leave that to anyone who truly desires a 1/1700 model

I know you are not taking requests, but I just wanted to give you a suggestion. Maybe the Bell Atlantic Tower in Philly. Like I said you don't have to make this one. Oh and just to let you know, I am totally building 2 Times Square tomorrow. Oh and if its not to much, could you visit my website, and tell me what you think?

Look at my models - they are created with Paint too. So you too can make detailed model. True my models created in larger scale.

Thank you all for the kind words!

I had no idea that all these incredibly detailed models were made with paint, that's extremely impressive!

Bell Atlantic Tower would be cool to make, however, I'm still kind of in the box stage at the moment, and while I'm sure I could pull it off, I'd rather save it until I'm more experienced doing this.

I have started a second one, which I'd like to get done before classes begin. I am using the scale so I guess this will be the first legit model of mine haha. All I'm saying is that its in NYC, and its extremely tall for how skinny it is, which narrows it down to one of two really haha

Also started saving in PNG, however Ramada might be blurry in parts (especially the billboards) because I had a little trouble finding unobscured views of the billboards dead ahead. Having thought on it a while I probably will redo the model at some point, I've even thought about just making the frames of the screens and such and having a blank spot where anyone could put whatever they like.
