I am going to be making wooden model of the New York City skyline over the summer. this skyline will range from 17 state street on the tip of Manhattan to the Time Warner twin towers bordering Central Park. all the buildings are built to a scale of one inch equals one hundred feet. The skyline will include over eighty buildings and take about three weeks to build going at a rate of five buildings per day. i am hoping that the this skyline will look good based on the outcome of my Dubai skyline model. New York is expected to begin on june 15th due to school and testing over the next month. the shelf the skyline will go on however will be built sometime in then next two weeks. Until New York can start to be built i will post photos if Dubai and the Shelf with the Layout mapped out. if anyone has any constructive criticism i am open to that and if anyone has a building request and it can fit in the skyline i will try and put it in. Thank You and please check back around the end of may for the Layout.
The original start date of the 15th was postponed because of family things but the official start date for the buildings in new york is tomorrow and will include 1,2,and 15 penn plaza, 20 times square, and the hyatt time square building.
Hey everyone i am going to try and post update pictures every friday and tuesday until the layout is completed. major towers going in over the next few days include the empire state building, the chrysler building, the american international building, and the manhattan west towers.
I didn't make any new towers since the last pictures because i've been working on painting the ones I have now and getting paint for upcoming ones. This means that the skyscrapers will now most likely be painted right after completion. I do however plan on working on several new buildings later today and will hopefully have ten new ones by tomorrow. These will include the Hudson Yards North Office Tower and One Astor Plaza. Also if anyone at any point sees a building with a dramatically different color than it has in real life please tell me and I will change it. Thanks for reading
