My Downtown model

I have started a model building project of a downtown layout. I have made some building models and have to make some more and will plan to fit into layout as much as I can. I will share them soon, but at this time I have finished designing a downtown layout. I have made this blueprint (I call) in mircosoft excel. Changes might happen here and there as I go forward but this will be predominately the structure of the downtown. Cheers

I would've never thought to make a city plot map in Excel, that is a splendid idea! It looks really nice too.

Thank you. Yeah even I didn't think so, I thought to use it for some rough draft but later figured I can diagram it on Excel itself with all its options.

I have assigned block numbers now for each block in my downtown model layout. Thought if I name like this, it would be easy for me to identify which building goes where and I can keep a journal. Will depict this on a big foam board now which will act as the base for the layout.

Thank you guys! Actually that would have not been possible with you all making different paper models published in this forum. I have used some of them for my buildings and had to use accordingly for the designs I make. Just mix and matched

And also, just to get some natural windows glare on the buildings, I have used the packaging tape wrapping on the walls.

Nice combination of building Santookri! I also love all the reflections, it makes the city much more realistic.

I have taped the walls with packaging tape which is transaprent to give such a windows shiny look. I did not do it for every building, just added as necessary.

Thank you Coddington.
I have to tell a bit of secret about the blue dome building. Its actually a top of an smoothie cup, just got that idea of changing into a building while throwing away the cup and so saved it to transform into a building.

And for most of the buildings I used basswood to get a finished look.

The layout is now on the foam board. I have joined 4 foam boards to act as a base and laid out diagram I made before. The size of the layout is 55" X 44"
