    This is a building that I began a few years ago. As you'll see I still have a ways to go to finish it. I'm struggling a bit with the textures, but they mostly seem to be working. I need a space of time where Ill be able to work on it without interruption (such as work).

    Nevertheless, I thought I would post my progress on here so you can see it and give me some feedback. If anyone is interested in doing a beta test build, please let me know.

    As a project, this is taking some years...

    Now I just have to get "posting the images" right

    That looks very interesting. Kind of reminds one of Howl's Moving Castle.:)thumbsup

    Looks really good, tempted to build it! Just add 24 Windows with indivual LED lightning and you got one of the best advent calendars.

    This looks really good. I like the concept. I have to agree with @SCEtoAux it does have that "Howl's Moving Castle" look to it.
    I looking forward to seeing how it turns out.

    I think I'll have to do another beta build anyway, the design is a bit difficult, so I might be starting it again before the textures. This might take a while...
    I must say, since I joined this group, I have learned so many things, documenting with photos while I build, techniques that have changed the way I see and build models, ideas that have led to actual paid work. But more than anything, it has been the inspiration and the feedback from all of you. Thanks for a great site. Thanks for being the like-minded people that you are and thanks for taking the time to look at the models and comment on them. This almost sounds like I'm leaving, I'm not. I'll still be around. Just wanted to say a huge thanks, guys.
