    Speaking of the lights:

    UHU02 has added another level to the building.

    AAAAND - the first parts! It seems that he really intends to tackle it!

    This is a "small" preview of the staircase located in the middle of the tower. I see LOTS OF CUTTING involved here. Curious to know if everything will be stable enough...:sticktongue:

    And another render to calm down our nerves:

    To be continued..! :)

    Really excited to see the first real build of this. And I'm with zathros, fitting it with LED lightning would make it 10 times more awesome. Though it probably would be a huge pain in the .... fingers... to hide the wiring in the structure ;)

    Edit: Posted as the same time as Revell Fan. Now as I see the cutting... there is a fine line between awesome challenge and masochist, I think UHU might have crossed it with this :hammerhead:

    The "Staircase" in the center will give the model much support. If you cut it out, you will have to build a box in the center to give it some rigidity. I don't think it's meant to be cut out though. :)

    I suppose in this case "RED" does not mean "to be cut out" because the main colour of the model is ... well ... RED. :)

    Another beauty shot:

    UHU has begun design work of the building at the foot of the tower:

    The tower itself is almost complete:

    if you leave the center solid, it'd hide all the wires for the led's... just a thought..

    UHU02 is testing the first textures for the building:

    [​IMG]

    :)

    According to Google translator he has found some new reference material which leads to a complete revision of the whole tower (the first one had wrong dimensions and proportions). The master sees it positively because that gives him the opportunity to improve certain structures and to add some of the parts which had been missing so far, such as a cooling tower on the roof. :)

    ATTENTION - ATTENTION: TOKYO TOWER BUILDING IS FINISHED ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ... but ... what's that???

    MOTHRA LARVA IS ATTACKING!!!! :nailbiting: :nailbiting: :nailbiting:

    [​IMG]

    IN 3D!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    (To those who are unfamiliar with this kind of stereoscopic vision: These are so-called cross-eyed 3D pictures. To view them cross your eyes so that your left eye is focusing the right image and your right eye is focusing the left image. You will notice an overlapping third image appearing in the middle of your viewing field. Slowly move your eyes toward this center image until it gets sharp and enjoy Mothra Larva attacking the Tokyo Tower. ;) )

    @uhu02 : Many cheers for good work, UHUsan!!! The cross-eye 3D renders are soooo awesome!!! I did the same with my last model but I used 2 D images and different layers in Gimp:
