Newest Google Earth Super Modeler: TANTUNNY

Please welcome TANTUNNY, aka Weiyu Chen, to the ranks of the Super Modelers! He was chosen by the Google Super Modelers group for recognition as an above-and-beyond geo-modeling enthusiast.

TANTUNNY's 3D models for Google Earth are not only numerous and accurate representations of real-life places, they are also beautiful and evocative 3D images with a distinct "mood." (See example above).

Congratulations TANTUNNY/Weiyu!

* "Super Modeler" is a term coined in the Google Geo group and designates amateur 3D modeling enthusiasts who create 3D building models for Google Earth.

Anyone in the public can easily learn to be a geo-modeler! Exceptional geo-modelers are often recognized as "Super Modelers." The Super Modelers group chooses new members. Super Modelers are an informal group allied with, supported by, and even rewarded by Google.

Happy Birthday Empire State Building

Today marks the eightieth birthday of New York's most famous icon, also the place where King Kong went rock climbing when the building was almost brand new. The model above was created by Super Modeler Damo for April Fool 2011.

Coincidentally the first World's Fair occurred in London twice as many years ago today. Here's another model by Damo of the pavilion.
