Culwulla will never forgive you for hijacking his monthly thread. You got a nice one though but I think Cul's is better*.







*I can't say Cul's thread is bad. He is a Mod, you know.

Neat work Densetsu!

Two tiny bugs to show my geek level: Chicago Spire should have seven spirals, one starting from each leg, and there should be several piles under the core.

Keep it up, dude; a very good diagram. Maybe you and Cul can alternate, one each every two months. Thanks for keeping us all up to date on all of these amazing projects.

This is an INTERNATIONAL forum, please don't write Turkish, or at least with English translation! This is a lack of education...
