I don't recall if this is ok to post, but you can now buy a 1":150' scale pewter replica of the ICC here:

http://www.infocustech.com/iftstore/...l.asp?prod=486

(The company that makes these replicas does not pay or ask me to plug for them.)

Their replicas are very expensive, but that's the price of the highly detailed craftsmanship. The pewter itself is worth just about US$10 per pound.


Dang, the tower is looking awesome!
