It's my dream to make something a little bit like yours!

Thanks, Sam. I think I should use thick paper instead of office paper. It may make me do it easier and I will be not worried about gluing.

Finally!
I'm glad to present my 4th scale model - downtown of Shreveport, Louisiana. It was very complicated model (because there is many old buildings) and as usually, I used next sites:
- bing.com/maps
- emporis.com
- skyscrapercity.com
- skyscraperpage.com
- flickr.com
- panoramio.com
- google.com images and maps
Also Google Earth and 363 photos from sites above.

Model includes:
- 1884 parts (buildings only)
- 19 plaques with names
- 29 parts of blocks
- 1 plexiglas base for US$45
- 4 thick-paper bases of roads
- 408 "trees"
Dimensions 315x312 mm. (≈12x12 in.)
For example, a few photos of model. All 52 pictures you can find on my Flickr page.

Find 10 differences

I am stunned. How do you do such detail at such a small scale?
