More Midtown Manhattan

I thought I’d follow up my last post on Michael Chesko’s Midtown Manhattan model with a model depicting the same location, but one which packs a lot less punch, at least for my tastes.

Midtown Manhattan

There’s nothing at all wrong with this model, but I can’t help feeling it falls massively short of Chesko’s masterpiece. It may well be due to the fact that it doesn’t represent as large an area of the city. Or perhaps it’s because the use of the different coloured materials doesn’t have the same visual impact as Chesko’s entirely balsa wood creation. Ultimately though, I think it’s all a question of scale. It seems that if you’re going to build a city in miniature, then the more miniature the better!
