    Okay, so presumably, if all goes well (fat chance), this will be my last model before kicking off what I hope will be a series of "designer" models by yours truly. I hadn't actually planned to make this model (I had started work on something else), but I was recently assigned my latest project for Architecture, where we have to make a model of a famous building. Considering how Speer's Große Halle has been in production hell since I first heard of the building, I figured it might as well be a good time as any to design it, and cheap out by using it at the same time as my project for this class. The model is in 1:750th scale, and spans a total of 40 pages.

    Hi Rocketmantan,
    I've seen your work on deviantart and I'm really impressed with it.
    This, on the other hand, is magnanimously stunning. Excellent work Sir!

    Alright, main building is done, and here's a dry fitting of the dome...come to think of it I'll probably have to keep buggering with the damn thing so the testbuild looks passable. I'll definitely resize it in the final version, however.
