That, and a helicopter ride over the building for some aerial shots.



I don't suppose this building is visible on Google Earth? If it is that might give a pretty good aerial of it.

Karl,

I think you are doing a great job on a difficult build.

What an interesting structure.

Paul

Boy, Karl, it sure does look like you've nailed the sway in that roof!

EDIT Funny what you can see in a photo but you cant see when its right in front of you.... I made the chimney shorter as it was too tall, made a new smaller sign as the other was too big and I installed the fascia boards to the roof, I dunno how I missed that the first time around.

Karl,

Outstanding,,,,you've accomplished an absolute clone of the original. Right down to the broken window glass and dab of paint on the door.

It's also amazing how you've duplicated the exact camera angle of the original prototype structure.

That's a terrific piece of work, Karl. You got all the crazy wall angles and swaying roof lines just right as well as the weathering and details.

I guessed that "dab of paint" was the letterbox, if i understand which one you mean, and I kinda messed up the angle when I just retook the picture after the corrections I made above, but its still close.

Thanks again.

Geez, Karl, I had to look twice - more than twice - between the first and second photos to realize the second photo is your model! Terrific job! You've "nailed it", as they say!
