Which buildings to model?

At the training sessions, we either sculpt a simple dwelling from scratch or work up a model of an actual building, depending on the wishes and experience if any of those taking part. These two buildings have been started:

  1. The Broadway Cinema, Eastcheap, SG6 3DD.
  2. The Spirella Building, Bridge Road, SG6 4ET. brochure

These have complex shapes that will require a lot of work, though our tutor Chris Jackson has already has the Broadway Cinema under way. Some participants intend to model their own houses. Others may with to model public or otherwise notable buildings. If you intend to submit a model for the Competition, or for Google Earth, please pick one and declare your interest in it to us so that other entrants can make other choices if they wish.
