Chicago - Water Tower Place (Beta Test Model)

Here's a Beta Test (no instructions yet)...


Notes:

- Model has not been test-fitted.
- No Instructions yet.
- Ground Floor details are "best guess" (I will adjust if I can get a hold of better details).
- Colour may be a little dark (Might lighten it up in a future edition).
- I usually print on regular 24 paper and "skin" a cardboard structure (however tabs are provided for a cut-n-fold 60lb card version).
- Lowrise height is intepreted from photo evidence (if it is off, let me know)
- Scaled the same as STR models.
- Should print on one page (no borders, 100% in MSPaint)
- I usually scale down to 95% to get close to 1:2000 Scale.

Great. From the number of parts it looks like itīs very detailed once built. Could you post a picture of the finished model?

High Cost of Labour

I'll try to get around to test building it this weekend coming up. I have a feeling The roof pieces may be a tad too small.

P.S.

Excellent work on the Seagrams Building. Is that clear acetate around the lobby?

I don't know the correct name, but it's transparent plastic from a binding cover.
