Those pics are so old, I think Queen Elizabeth took them as a teenager.

Excuse me, why don't you exaggerate by saying they were taken by 大阴蒂国(Chinese mockery of UK)'s Queen Victoria during the Opium Wars?

The photos from the post #17665 are a bit old (from late last month), the first pic from the following post # 17666, however, was taken yesterday.

Let's all thank Forum, and others such as Little Universe, who do their best to keep us updated with pictures of the ST and other landmark Chinese towers...

Damn, so nobody knows any good, 3d puzzles or model kits for the skyscraper fanatic?

For those looking I found Wrebbit, and another called puzz3d.com.

However, I want to find a puzzle or model I like and stick with 1 brand, anybody got any suggestions, nothing much higher than about 100USD or lower?

There is actually a 3D puzzle of cities. You can find them here: http://4dcityscape.com/

However, the buildings are not very high in detail.

The lack of bridges kind of makes the city center seem to be out of reach for all those people. Nice skyline, though.

Those red repetitive houses are ruining Pudong's urban feel ! They have to be replaced by highrises and skyscrapers , and Pudong's cityscape would be much better !

Absolutely. What is the reason for the lack of construction above 200m in Shanghai anyways? Vaccancy rate is low, the land is probably extremely expensive and Shanghai's economy and population is steadily growing. So why are there so few 200m+ projects proposed in Shanghai?

These houses have occupants and owners, before you can replace them you have to have a new place for the occupants to live and compensate the owners. I reckon that's already in the works.

Thanks Sirius, I've seen you've responded a couple times,, I just have to accept the fact, in this day and age, there is nothing out there that fits this specific want.
