Overall, i can't be more unimpressed by the new wtc.
Seriously? So only the top 3 tallest towers are good enough for you? I am sure you never have seen any of these towers in real life.

How long now will it be until the cranes come down and complete the communications ring, dismantle the temporary platform and remove those hideous temporary platform rings on the spire?

I'm stopping for the day. This is all I have done so far, but I've already learned a lot of things. My model will only contain geometry that will be visible. It will look as detailed as the last (more actually), but instead of actually modeling the bolt holes and then the bolt, it will just be the head of the bolt and over the hundreds of bolts it will make the model a lot more responsive. In addition to that change, instead of actually modeling the tiny bolt holes surrounding the antenna mounting points, I'll use black circles. The reason this is important is that it will allow me to finally make longer animations, possibly one that includes lighting eventually. I'll upload new pictures after every major advancement in the model.

Lastly, this will not be a model of the spire under construction, but rather after it's completed and the temporary structures are removed.
