Model Kits Online ?

Does anyone know a good place to buy model skyscraper kits online? I'd love to build a scale model of the Burj Dubai or other skyscrapers

You know Ember-To-Ashes, if you get on the Rei's Paper Models thread, there is a paper model of Burj Dubai and several other paper models of other buildings in Dubai, Japan, and China. It's simple. All you have to do is copy them onto MS paint and then print them, fold them, and glue them!

Dequal

your link to your website doesn't work

Alkamos,

you print all the pages out for the building you want, cut them out, fold them and glue/stick them together.

make sure you print each page out in the same way at the same scale or they wont' fit together.

Cheers
