(Has it been over two months since I last posted? Time flies when you’re having fun, I guess.)
If you are at all interested in Paris and its best-known landmark, no doubt you have seen images drawn from this classic photographic record. I’m grateful someone had the presence of mind to set up a camera to record the event. Not being one to be outdone, today I decided it was my turn.
Last Christmas, my daughter bought me a model of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, manufactured by ICONX. (And I’m utterly independent of them, with no compensation arising from this mention.) I had so much fun (does one really have fun assembling these things?) that I assembled a Millenium Falcon for my son’s housewarming. And seeing the Christmas-New Year holidays coming, I decided it was time for my project: build the Eiffel Tower and record the event. So here you go. Notice the American quarter coin in the final one; by my calculation, this model is scaled 1:2551.
