I would not add any building that is not completed/under construction/proposed, otherwise it will not be a true representation of what the skyline is expected to look like in a few years.

Anything that isn't built yet isn't glued down to the model yet, (so for the proposals I can remodel them as the design changes), so basically I can show the present and future versions as well as do some fantasy proposals, no worries :cool:!

Happy Easter!

To coincide with Aura's roof fins finally going up, I redid my Aura model. It's still missing the base (which is glued down to the rest of my model), and I might change the roof to reflect the fins a bit more, but here's what I have so far... All in all it's a bit more accurate to the real thing.

I also included a comparison to the old model (which looks pretty bad and has shown its age)

Here's quick random shaky-cam video-pan of the model. It's a change from the usual photos I post. Perhaps I'll make a better video down the line with more production value too it lol.

Looks great Steveve. Just watched The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and his backdrop made me think of your model. Did you design his set? haha

I love your model, it blows my mind. I am not a model maker but as an artist who often works in miniatures I can really appreciate the time and effort you put into this. The attention to detail is amazing, obviously developers have their own such models, but they only focus on their own projects. This is great.
