More work on Facade models

27 March 2013: Although it is vacation, we managed to get some more aluminium and the BlueSky Dreamers group made further progress with their facade model. This is the 'braced megaframe', although it may be so strong that it may not sway very much. Oh well, it's been a great experience so far making it!
It has to be well secured to the base so that it sways instead of toppling over. There will be a counter-weight at the top.The floor plates are clear plastic, and the intention is to go about a metre tall. This is loosely based on the Hearst Building in New York.
