I kinda liked it when it was taller - made it a little more graceful. I suppose it was a structural concern though. Maybe they couldn't hold up that much glass safely against the wind. Maybe?

But I've had the image on the top right on my PC for a couple of years already so if the design changed, then it changed ages ago!

The ludicrous thing about the design update is that I finished my ICC model today. Next time they should ask me first before they do anything

Anyway I won't change the top, you can chop it, if you like to make though....

It isn't. Really tall buildings, yes. Not midrises and highrises.

There's no perhaps about it, HK is the world's most 'vertical city', containing more towers over 150m than any other, followed by New York. 38 of the world's 100 tallest residential buildings are in HK. Awesome city!

Hey ReiAyanami, great looking models.

I followed the link you have in your signature and discovered that one can download the flat-pattern of the buildings, but what kind of paper do you use?
