Been a bit busy lately so I haven't really built anything recently, I did however give the CN tower a go... I'm not too pleased with the upper half of the tower, i'll have to go back on day and fix it, but for now it'll do.
I have a suggestion for preservation. Try Plastidip. They now come in spray-cans. It sprays a fine coat of rubber in various colours. On harder materials, they can be peeled off like sprayed latex. I'm not sure about cardboard, but you can give it a try on a small sample before coating your entire city.
It gives a soft-touch matte rubber finish if applied properly. There are lots of youtube videos you can reference.
funny, i was asking myself this question a few days ago!,
ya, I've taken a bit of a break for the past month or so; I've been sorta busy, but I'm planning to finish it up within the next few months. iOS6 3d maps are really awesome, and will definitely help me out in finishing the model.
Been a while since an update; not a whole lot to update here, but I did the Air Canada Centre, Infinity Phase 1, and a few more fillers. Still plenty of major recently-announced projects that will have HUGE impacts. Mirvish Towers, 10 York, Harbourfront Plaza, ICE, One Bloor, etc...
*I also redid Bay-Adelaide East, hardly noticeable, but basically i got rid of the corners, and fixed the dimensions of the footprint
Apparently this post didn't post for some reason, but here it is anyway from last week:
Been a long while since an update, I haven't really had that much time to finish up the model,
Got sick of waiting for a finalized 1BE height, so I built it 255m to the fins (flat fins/roof, which I've heard is what they're going with... If that changes, I can always trim the roofline)
Gotta say, it's taller than I thought it would be. And with the recent supertall/near-supertall proposals, it's mind blowing the impact they will have.
I've also been thinking of making crude massing models for the massive new tower proposals around the city [Gehry Towers, Oxford Place, etc...). Perhaps to keep me invested.
*STILL haven't gotten around to building Roy Thompson
