Ginseng, Iīm making an edit of your 1251 6th Ave. It was originally going to be just for me, but it is looking really nice. Would it be a problem if I posted it? Of course youīd take credit for it
BTW Iīve recovered already mobility on my right hand, so Iīll keep on modeling!!!

It's already an edit of Skyscrapers144's model, so you can do with it whatewer you want as far as I'm concerned. It was one of my first ones, so some parts are unsurprisingly not that accurate.
Speaking of 6th Avenue, I might finish Americas Tower over the weekend.

Looks very good (especially the blinds), but it's perhaps too dark. If anything, the one that needs to be darkened is 1221 6th Ave

Ok, guys, I've finished the "blueprint" of the base. I've drawn all the blocks in Midtown (with no textures), from 31st St to 63rd St, and from 9th Ave to the coast, with all the existing NYC models scaled down to 1:1700. I won't upload the image because it's about 2m tall, and even wider. I'll go uploading section by section, as I finish them. First one will be very soon, and it will include the trhee original blocks around Empire State, and a much larger area around Rockefeller Center. All credits go to the creators of the models. Stayed tuned for more!

Hey, guys, the base would be better with the following models: 444 Madison Ave, Swiss Bank Tower and Double Tree by Hilton Hotels Times Square If any of you is working on it, please, send me itīs footprint. If not, would anybody be interested in doing any of them?

I'm not working on these specific buildongs, but I'm putting together lots of footprints around Sixth Avenue, among others it includes the whole block with Tishman Building and Bacarat Hotel. I'll post at least parts of it very soon.

Yes, Iīm doing a couple lowrises and the Museum of TV and Radio. I tried also the other skyscraper in the block but the roof was so hard and I gave up, this is what the final model will include, which will probably be coming next week:

Hey guys, sorry to say this, but I have very little time for anything, so I'm afraid that I'll have to stop doing this. Hope I can get time in a future to keep on working, which is something I still really enjoy. I'll keep checking the forum in the meanwhile. So sad to say goodbye
