Chester,,

Gld they are off interest. Can't really do a link, as these are all from the different peoples FB pages, and not necessarily set to "Public" for viewing.

Some of the builds, such as Marcel du Long's, do have threads in the MIG forum.

It's either a 19th century missile silo, the world's largest sewer vent, a phallic symbol, or the Mother of All Barbecues. -- ssuR

How cool is the internet! Kevin Moris, owner of The Whiste Post found this article. Note that in the article the openings are .. well open. Closed off now.

Chester and everybody else. Here is a link to the website of Marcel. He is like me a member of the Scale Model Factory in Eindhoven (NL) and I have seen a lot of his creations. http://www.marceldulong.com/gallery.html

That's cool. I'm glad that someone decided to keep it standing even as they built a subdivision around it.

I've long been a member on a virtual modeling site basically for their terrific library of blueprints. What I see there mostly are very realistic virtual electronic renditions of bright shiny new cars and most are extremely convincing. This is no exception but the subject matter is very different. I can't believe this isn't real.

Thank's Russ but he's way beyond my league. That's very good. It's hard enough to produce convincing images of new shiny things, but producing a weathered version adds another level of difficulty to the process. It's very time-consuming to create and map appropriate textures that look believable and are not repetitive. Most renderings of weathered subjects that I've seen fail because either the texture maps are inappropriate or out of scale, or they repeat within the image which is a dead give-away. This, however, is an excellent job. Thanks for posting the image Chester...
