    What I need help with is the exterior wall of the twins
    See I want it fairly accurate, so I hope someone could provide me with the total lenght of 1 of the 3 collumn / 3 Story prefab parts that were used for the exterior wall

    Excellent work, as always, STR. I like the circular bridge.

    The bridge is only 50% done. I might just scrap it and redo it from the beginning, no loss as it took ~3 minutes to make. The big thing is the 7WTC lobby, which may not seem much different from last time, but I've got a lot more accurate info now and all I need to do is add color and some escalators.

    Kinda odd how some photos and material has only come out recently, while the vast majority of the better photos in my collection are no longer available online.

    Any chance you'd make that photo collection available online? I have a large one myself but it's lacking on interior shots.

    Well, that's (for better or worse) not going to happen, so this and other recreations are the best chance of preserving what once was.

    I actually don't have many photos. Just a few floor plans and a couple of videos. One of them is from the recent History Channel Doc "102 Minutes that Changed America."

    Ah, ok. Funny that you mention that documentary because I was very surprised that it had the WTC7 footage included. I'd seen bad quality screen-grabs of it in the past but I'd never seen the footage itself. It's a great documentary and I'd recommend that anyone interested in 9/11 purchase it.

    I was attempting to recreate a photo I have in my collection. It's getting closer. It doesn't show too much progress in this shot, but I've been concentrating on the top and north side of the building lately.


    Testing lighting settings on Tower 7 lobby. I figure, why not post? I like the results of #1 the most.



    WTC Freight Ramp next to ConEd substation.


    On a related note, the National Institute of Standards and Technology released the final report on the collapse of 7WTC. Link is below. For those not interested in reading the report, the office fire in the lower floors of the building were solely responsible for the collapse. Basically, the fire heated the exceptionally long-span floor beams in the tower. These beams expanded, eventually ripping out the connections that attached them to the collumns. The unsupported columns gave way and the building collapsed inside out, the facade and exterior columns stood for several seconds after the interior floors had fallen away. Debris impact from 1WTC, while destroying up to 7 exterior columns, only had minimal impact AFTER the collapse started. Diesel generators did not effect the fire either.

    Really interesting animations.

    STR, stunning work as usual! Also, thanks for that link to the NIST WTC7 report. Let's just say I'm not surprised to find that no explosives were found, but I'm guessing that won't stop theorists from doing whatever they do. Oh well.

    Well, most of the "truthers" stopped believing all that tripe when they realized it turns off girls more than their acne and star wars collections.

    A close up of one of the address signs. I don't recall if I made a detail shot before.

    Shouldn't that sign be rotated 90 degrees? Unless there was 2 signs in front? Don't quote me on it anyway. And there was a close up shot of the 1 WTC sign in the plaza way back.

    Looking good.

    Btw, I'm trying to model the mall area as detailed and accurate as possible, including all shops (minus the signage and logos to avoid copyright trouble) but I'm lacking on images. I only have around 6 mall images, just wondering if you could post any rare or good mall images you have STR? Or point me in the right direction to find some more? The area I'm modelling now is the Vessy Street entrance to the mall under 5 WTC, I only have 1 image of this area, in the same position as this render:




    And I like number 4 the best:
