    Hi to all,

    I return with another building.
    This model only have 200 pieces that are spread through 19 A3 sheets.

    Its possible to choose between a very complicated model and a simpler one and it will end with more than 1 meter high.

    I will build the hard version with some thousand of triangles to cut.

    Well, for now I started to build the four shoes that will support the entire model. They were easy to build.

    For now I start to show a little of hard work and a piece of easy work.

    The cutting of all the black areas dont have much to see but the result is very nice.

    Finally, after many hours cutting and painting the edges I can show the building of the first floor. It was a long and a hard work but at the end this is the result.
    This is a model that gives much work to the modeler but doesnt give much fings to show during building.

    I would suggest putting some steel rod on the inside corners to support the model over time. I have had smaller models with lattice structures collapse, and would be beyond a shame! A glass case would be nice too, maybe with a mirror in the back, or in a corner scenic backdrops. :)
