...definitely a different angle than I am used to seeing. A couple more supertalls in the midtown area would be nice, to go with the ESB! Too bad the weather wasn't clearer.

What a great looking collection. I've only made a paper model of 7WTC. Those models are tougher to make than they look.

A suggestion, next make a model of the Museum Pavillion. The tridents would look really cool.

Durr. The reason half the buildings on that pic look the same is because they're all part of the IFC.

It all looks great to me. Maybe I should troll the "Supertalls of Poland" forum to gain perspective on good architecture!
lol

I see that they actually completed two floors in two weeks! The core steel for the next two levels is already up, and the perimeter columns too! AWESOME!
