    Thank you Rogério!! About the "smoothness", I would like to be a lot better in that aspect.

    Sometimes I can disguise it but almost always I can't. I still have a big stairs to climb...

    Thank you very much for the three of you :).

    Here is the beast with 106cm tall!


    In the end I am proud of my work. There is always room to improve, but I like it a lot.

    It was not easy to take pictures of the model because of its size.

    Thank you to all that follow this tread for their interest and comments.

    Tino

    EXCELENTE, CARA!! = EXCELLENT, DUDE!!
    What a wonderful achievement you have now, and what a privilege it was to follow this thread. :mrgreen: :thumb: :thumb: :cool:
    The last pictures make your model look so much bigger, :eek: that one could take it for the real thing! Nothing like a good, simple camera trick...:mrgreen:
    Congratulations, and please let us know what your next work will be!

    Stunning work, I may not have posted before but I've watched this from the start. I would have left all the little black triangles in place, too afraid I'd mess up and cut a girder or something.
    Very nicely done and some of those photos are like looking up the real thing.

    Incredible, only rivaled by the real Eiffel Tower! Considering all the effort you put into it, you did it very fast! It is superb! :)
