Thats really cool, thanks.
That is really cool! Thanks for sharing. I look forward to seeing more of your work.
Dallas uber alles
Impressive! Thanks for sharing! Have you done any other Dallas buildings?
That's amazing that you made those! I've always wanted to do stuff like that, but I have no patience, so props!
You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
Thanks for the comments! I'm glad.
Prices for my work you can see on my own site www.usapapercity.com I think Fair Park is too hard for me yet.Originally Posted by cowboyeagle05
No, I haven't. But model of Dallas likely my next after Tulsa.Originally Posted by DFWCRE8TIVE
First off, great work! Very impressive. But I have to ask...you live in Russia, so how did you pick Midland and Tulsa to build models of. Or Dallas even.
Well, finally downtown of Tulsa is finished. Photos you can find on my Flickr page (see signature below). And I decided to make next two cities - Shreveport, LA and ..... Dallas, TX! Diagrams of first buildings I will post soon. I can to say it will be my biggest project among of scale models of US cities. I will create new thread here.
Whoa that is really amazing, good work! Can't wait to see the finished Dallas
Amazing! Could you give me a quote for the ALICO building in Waco? I would love to buy a model from you!
I live near of Saint-Petersburg.
Those are amazing. I am jealous of your talent.
I'm glad to introduce my next project - paper scale model of downtown of Dallas. Scale is 1:2000 (1 cm =20 m). Previous models you can see by clicking on links below in my signature.
It will be my biggest model, approximately 800x620 mm!, maybe more.
It will be a long-time work.

So, I think you will appreciate my choice, this is a map:
And this is a first models which I will build:
- Energy Plaza
- Thanksgiving Tower
- One Main Place
- Skye Bar
- Patriot Tower
- Bryan Tower
- Federal Building
- Earle Cabell Federal Building
- United Fidelity Building
- 211 North Ervay Street
Wow! That's nearly incredible, and quite impressive! I'm very eager to see the final results.
How long will the process take? What of buildings that currently exist and may soon be torn down or modified? Similarly, what of the new construction planned during the "paper construction"? Put another way: will your project represent a "freeze frame" of how Dallas looked on a particular day, or will it "evolve" as the city does?
This is so awesome.
Russian Sam, tell us more about you. Where do you live? Do you build models for your job? Or is this just a hobby?
Thank you, Rangers.
My real name is Ilia. I'm 26 years old. I live near Saint-Petersburg (2nd biggest city in Russia, not in state of Florida ). Those models are my hobby, because I love architecture of US cities and I would to visit each of them. It is my dream. I have been in Oklahoma City and Tulsa in last year and I saw Dallas from the airplane only. I'm working in architectural company which produces scale models for other companies and firms.
^ You do great work. It's hard to believe you can get that many details perfect even though you haven't spent time in Dallas. We were in St Petersburg in September and enjoyed exploring that city (and admiring the architecture).
new favorite forum member? check. ilia, you are awesome
Oh, thank you for the warm comments
How small my models:
By the way, at the same time with Dallas I'm building downtown Shreveport, LA. Thread here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1469692
those are amazing...yet you said you've never actually been outside Dallas' airport?
Frankfurt reminds me of Dallas, what do you think?
keep up the good work sam!
To the Victor go the spoils!
To the Victor go the spoils!
You are very talented!
Great job! Love watching your collection come together!
--with this next paragraph, I got the help of Google Translate, hope it's readable!--
Еще одно предложение, если вы еще не думали об этом раньше .... Если вы когда-нибудь видели любого эпизода «Даллас» ТВ-шоу, они показали много крупных планов и под разными углами некоторых зданий в центре города в течение большей части выполнения ряда.
How did I do, Ilia?
This was what I translated: Another suggestion, if you haven't thought about it before.... if you've ever watched any episodes of "Dallas" the TV show, they showed many close-ups and different angles of some of the downtown buildings during most of the series' run.
Amazing job with everything Ilia!!
Sam, I know of a diorama forum where you're terriffic archecturial models would be in awe ! scrubba
Great job, Ilia! I notice you just did the main part of downtown Shreveport, but not any of the casinos along the river. Will be good to see what you will do for Dallas.
