I still can't believe how good is the cladding on this tower looking... IMO certainly one of the best of the towers U/C worldwide...

The original image was posted by Aaron 38 at ssp - I hope you don't mind that I used your image for this.

By the way THERE IS NO NEED TO TELL ME WHICH BUILDINGS ARE MISSING. I know there are many others I could have included. I do not have models made for those buildings yet.
