Hello and happy 4th of July to everyone who is celebrating it! i just completed ten buildings this morning and hope you enjoy.

I figured that today was the best day to build these towers. Also please note that I made these out of memory and not to be disrespectful in any way.

Sorry for not having posted in a while but I have been side tracked with other projects. construction will resume this week with the metropolitan life tower and The Cityspire center. But in the mean time i've been painting several buildings such as Hyatt times square, One Astor Plaza, and 20 Times Square.

The way I did them was a scale of every inch is equal to 100ft in real life. Then if a tower is 832ft tall it would be rounded to the nearest quarter inch in that case 8.25 inches tall

How do you cut the shapes out? Bandsaw?

Actually I just use several different types of hand saws to cut out all the parts out.

The Skyline of lower Manhattan is almost done with only about 7 buildings left including 60 wall street, the Woolworth building, 50 west street, and The Beekman tower. But currently new editions include 40 Wall street, Nobu hotel and residence, and 56 Leonard Street visible behind One Chase Manhattan Plaza.

Looking down at Lower Manhattan. New buildings include 8 Spruce Street( wave details will be done later), One Liberty Plaza, and 60 Wall Street. Some Buildings are not on There Spots Because I changed the layout after I painted the base, that will be changed when everything is done.

Today I also made the Bank of America Tower.
