Tomorrow I'm going on holiday to Dungeness and then straight after to a scout camp, which means I won't be on skyscrapercity for a fortnight. I will miss you
Can people mainly focus on taken pictures of the core box, screens and glass for me so I can trace back my diagrams for my time-lapse please.
Last diagram till the 29th of August:
