Here is my first attempt at anything... I am working with Photoshop, paint, scanner/sketching, luck, and a fair grasp of spatial relationships...

This is a hotly sought after subject, so I decided I would start off with it, as even a model with problems is better than no model.

Sorry the skins are composites of different renderings, and the angles for the roof/bottom don't quite match up. for best results print twice, once at a larger scale, and cut the top and bottom pieces down to fit. The scale SHOULD have been around 1:1700, but I dun f***ed up somewhere along the way print at about 150% for that scale... feel free to edit, re-skin, tweak, smash, burn, eat, or whatever you would like to do to this model. I seek no credit or compensation.

Today's model is: CCTV HQ, Beijing, PRC.



Also, before Chicago Freak speaks up; while I am open to SUGGESTIONS, I will NOT do requests, and I will not be making patterns frequently.

Hey WiGgLz01, I'm already making the Space Needle, and Fountainbleau Las Vegas and I may consider making the Wave Tower in Dubai because I think that it's a really cool building!

Hey ATG-Chi-Town, what is your next model gonna be?
Not positive. Girlfriend is visiting from across state, so I'll be dealing with erections of a different nature for a few days :lol:

Also, be aware ChicagoFreak96, I've seen your behavior in other threads. I do not appreciate someone wearing the name of my city behaving in such an obnoxious manner. However, as I am magnanimous, I will not pass judgment on you retroactively. However, the instant you become pushy, petty, or rude in my thread, I will take all measures within my means to exact disciplinary action in the pursuit of order and to restore the image of my city on this thread.

Screw it, I'm double posting anyway, it's my thread... I was wondering if I could get a roll call of ages, occupations, what draws you to this site/the hobby in general...

I, for one, am 22. I work at a professional baseball park. Chicago has been my home since America welcomed me 22 years ago, and as you grow up around them, skyscrapers kind of implant a certain nostalgia in you...

i am a 13 year old 4.0 honor role student. washington in general has been my home since i was born. i am not really sure how i got interested in architecture, but i made lots of plastic models with my dad when i was younger, and that is really the main reason that made me want to build these beautiful representations of great buildings.

Hey ATG-CHI-Town, how do you know if I'm from Chicago or not? Oh and by the way, I'm 13 and I like skyscrapers. In fact, my favorite building is the Sears Tower in Chicago, IL and my second favorite building is the Church Office Building in Salt Lake City, UT! I discovered this site one day when I whas searching on the internet for paper model skyscrapers. First, I found skyscrapermodels.us and then I found SSC!
