Finished STR's WTC and jw117's SWFC with john87's base, also skyscrapers144 1251 Avenue of the Americas and Lions 2 Broadway. So many more to go, not enough hours in the day lol.

It definitely is I used to have heaps, but our printer broke so we brought a new one so it printed at a different scale, and then a few weeks ago another scale, so i'm building them for the third time lol, at least i'm better at building them this time around from all of the practice.
My goal for today is to finish building the Pentominium and hopefuly the net for the Lipstick Building.

In case you don't know, that is considered spam. Spam bad, on topic good

Thanks

I'm not very inspired by NZ high-rise buildings to be honest Ausie lol. I'll think about it, but there aren't any that comes to mind at the moment. Theres just so many incredible buildings in NYC I can't seem to move away from it. I don't know what my next building will be, i'm busy making so many other people's modles at the moment, currently making Taipei 101.

Out of all the models i have in my collection, Taipei 101 is one of my top 5 favorites. The finished product is amazing!!

I forgot about that building by Lions, i'll have to add that to the list to build as well.
Taipei 101 is an amazing model, especially with john87's base. I want to build all the tallest buildings first before I make my way onto the smaller ones. Then I can post some cool photographs of my city

Well I have almost finished two of them lol, although I have made the models numerous times. I can't wait until Laurentj released his Burj Khalifa, that will be an exciting day
Part of the trouble is making sure they are all correctly scaled, especially the Petronas, that will be a mission to get to 1:1700.
