So, I figured there are folks on here that would be very excited to see a site where you can purchase high quality cast metal replicas of famous high rises. There is a decent selection of Houston buildings here, including Catalyst (!!!) and 609 Main, among others. www.replicabuildings.com/products.php I’ve not purchased any of these yet, but I do want a couple! I’ve got an antique scale One Shell Plaza that needs company! It is possible this has been posted here, but I didn’t find it when I searched.
Here is a model that took me about a month to complete. Even though I got the facade ideas from another model I seen, the layout and design is my own. This is one of the most detailed models I've made using, not just poster board, but other paper of different colors and various materials for the windows. I knew I had to add the colored trees and bushes all over the property to give it a more lively appearance. By far, one of the best models I've made.
This is a project I did about 2 years ago. The model is still in my closet. I designed it from my own imagination on paper first, then made this physical model of the structure. If you look at it closely, all of the sections connect, therefore all floors are reachable from one another. Some of the advanced designers out there may see some major/minor flaws in the design, but I still like the look of it! Could it actually be constructed the way it is designed? Would you want it in your town?
Here is a tower I built using poster board and the little mirror tiles from my old disco ball. I then added the landscaping using the standard model greenery supplies. Placing each mirror tile next to each other, getting them to line up exactly was a little tedious, but as time went on it was fun! After I made it, it reminded me a lot of the First City Tower...the 49 story parallelogram building in downtown. Hope you like it!
