Financial Times Building. NYC

One more from Sixth Avenue. I had an early unreleased version of this for years and I originally wanted to post finalized version along with Tower Verre, but then completion Rockefeller Center motivated me to post it much earlier.
As of now I don't have any more New York models with major progress, only exception being some smaller building in my Third Avenue project. Now will be a good opportunity to finally give proper focus to One Astor Plaza and 570 Lexington Avenue, though they'll certainly take a while to make.






Extended base that besides completed models includes footprints of Tower Verre, 114 West 47th Street and models that are being made by LAbuilder. Combined with Rockefeller Center and Avenue of the Americas Parts 1 & 2 you will have a solid chunk of Manhattan complete with roads.

There's also much bigger base that combines everything I made around Sixth Avenue with lots of new footprints: http://i.imgur.com/AgzAAkY.png

Thatīs just amazing!!!!!! Wooooooooow!!!!!!! I love it, really! But I have a questions: I have no Photoshop, could you help me scaling the base down at 1:1700 (real 1:1700, not 2 pix/ 1m)so I can make mine fit? If I do it with Paint it gets soooo blurry. Thanks in advance! And are you also working on Baccarat? If itīs like that, Iīll throw mine away, yours will be way better. And again, as always, great job!!!!!!
BTW I think you forgot International Gem Tower (I know itīs not very good looking, Iīll reclad it very,very soon)

Thanks! I don't think there's anything I can to better about scaling it down, the method I described earlier only works in the opposite direction. If you don't already use it, try Paint.net (it's for free). For scaling it might be even better than Photoshop.
Keep working on Baccarat! The new version looks really good, the only problem might be how well it'll fit

All right then! I checked it and the versions are not very different, with a little edition they will fit very easily. BTW do you plan on doing all the buildings you draw footprints for?

You're right, there seems something weird going on. Did anyone else have problems with printing my models lately?

I sure would like to make them all, but I have no idea if I'll be able to or how long it might take. Besides Tower Verre, the only ones with any real progress are 1325 Avenue of the Americas and 135 West 50th Street

Wow, that's amazing to hear. Maybe I really should have picked architecture

Unfortunately I don't have much time for models right now, thought there are two major models on the horizon (from Houston and Minneapolis respectively) that I feel will be easily among my greatest ever
