    @Martin Saenger made a new model for the Spacedays convention in 2016. This time he chose the Tyrell building from Blade Runner.

    The model was designed completely from scratch using a lot of picture references. The texture was a real challenge because of the size of the real thing and the enormous number of windows (133,572!). The scale is unknown, unfortunately, but the model is 19 x 19 x 5.6 cm big.

    And this is the place to go:

    Thank you, Martin ! :)

    Have fun and enjoy! :)

    That is REALLY COOL! Thank you @Martin Saenger for designing and making this model, and Thank you @Revell-Fan for posting it here.
    I remember watching it when it was in theaters. I saw the version where Harrison Ford was doing all of the background narration and explained quite a bit of what was going on.
    I might be able to greeble out some of the printed texture, but not all of it.
