    Thanks for the info Steve!:thumb:

    They look great and probably better than spending $50+ buying plastic ones, etc.:rolleyes:

    Tower Of London II?

    Canon's Tower Of London

    I just wanted to bump this one up to the top again to bring everyones attention to it one more time,,,
    [​IMG] with a smile of course!
    After downloading this one and taking a good look at every page,
    I believe the bump is warranted.

    I am really impressed with the graphics that they used for the stone walls
    and I am quite impressed with the looks of the model as a whole, really.
    [​IMG] It would be worth a look if they wanted a couple dollars for it,
    so why not at least take a look at it for free?

    The Tower Of London Model consists of 11 pages split into 2 pdf files and a third pdf file of instructions
    that is 8 pages of very explicit diagrams that can be easily understood without words.
    The 3 pdf files are available in your choice of either A4 or US format and they aren't very big.
    In total, there are really only 10 pages to print and 134 parts, so not too daunting of a build.
    Here is a peek at the results...

    If you like architecture, then this one is worth a look!
    Even if you don't like architecture, it's still worth a peek for a million other reasons!
    I'm already working on design modifications of my own.
    I plan to build this model as a jewelry box reinforced with cedar.
    Then I'm giving it to my daughter for Christmas. I think she'll love it!

    If this post led you to download and take a look at the model, please post a reply in this thread.
    Tell us about it.:mrgreen:

    I havn't donloaded the tower of London model yet. But I have to agree with Russell, Canon models are excellent.

    A jewelery box? Now that sounds interesting. Can't wait to see pics of that, Russell.

    Well, looks like a change of plans on the horizon.
    An ECR has been issued already!
    My wife informed me that my daughter has requested an entertainment center for Christmas.
    Guess I was thinking like an old man instead of a Daddy.:cry:
    After my wife told me the news, I thought about it for a little bit.
    I know my daughter would appreciate anything I make her but she is much more into TV and Play Station and music than jewelry anyway.

    I think I may convert this model into something still along the same lines but more for modeling purposes.
    Maybe storage of the little stuff like blades and bits and toothpicks.
    We shall see. I will put some more thought into it.:rolleyes:
