^ I assume he means where are the models at the top of the page - post #364.

Looks like some kind of exhibition centre **shrug** it says they were originally posted on SkyScraperPage.com though, so if anyone here will know where they are is anyones guess.

I wish they would make some progress, even just a little, with US7. I keep coming back to look at this thread and the only progress is on the other towers. To be honest I don't care about them. None of them turn me on aesthetically. It's only US7 that I care about.

then don't check this thread until at least March of next year. Because i know there won't be much progress (if any) between now and March.
