Someone in the Scale Models section is currently working on a paper model of the Burj Khalifa. There was already a model by ReiAyanami but some people didn't like it so this dude with the username of Laurentj is making it. Here are some pics of his progress:





As you can see it still needs the bottom.

Also here's the base he's making for the tower:

Very nice. Is he using elevations for the base? There was a picture posted yesterday that showed the elevations perfectly. And what about the top section of the spire, how it will be made?

Looks nice, only the 2 towers on the left do not match with what's really there (though you might not be the one who did those).

Armani is absolute crap, I feel sorry for the investors that bought that. What a joke, 8000-10,000 AED per sqft for nothing.

Next time I'm there I will take photos and post them.

Hi all.

Yes - great model shots Sale.

The model looks like the same one Imre took some shots of (from Cityscape - ?) last year.
It is a very acurate model except for 'the offices' annex.
Jees - they couldn't add the 6 levels to make it acurate ?
The 6 levels they finished adding to the annex - over a year ago ....


Ray.

There are no tall towers at the location where the picture was taken. It is aerial photography. Meaning taken by an aircraft and not supported by any structure.
