    Hi everyone,
    Well, I have a sand tower, but I'm not so glad with.
    So I decide to updating keeping only the tower in wood and the sand tank.
    Adding new details and others.

    The old sand tower.

    After several days of investigating, I found pictures of the details that I was missing.
    And I got down to work.
    Here's a little about the construction process.

    I like the look of this project, are you building with wood on foamcore? I have done that a lot, gets you an exceelent exterior built on something that can be knocked together quickly, and tested to see how it fits in the space. locv the scratchbuilt details, thanks for sharing I have been to busy with the rebuild of my wole RR to get mired in detail recently.

    Beautiful! Looking through the windows of your residence, I can see the contrast, and maybe some inspiration? Modern city, vintage model, beautifully executed. :)
