How you do and what it costs I don't know.

I made a FREE model of Taipei 101, and you can make it as big as you want (basic size is 30cm tall). The model above costs $18-$25 depending on the version you buy, but if you want to pay money for having the mall attached, be my guest.

Blown up T101, assembled by Taxidermista. It stands 60cm tall.

My other models.


And yes, this post is meant as a shameless boost for my website, but it's still relevent to the topic at hand. A lot of people here don't have credit cards, or can't afford to blow money on overpriced paper models of skyscrapers. Plus, why pay someone for something you can have for free?

Most have directions, but some don't. I only have so much time I can put on the website.

Now now, those are not models, they are simply my old drawing.



Anyway, I have seen the model on another website, and it sells for about $20, somewhere there.
