Step 1: Tools of the Trade

3 ice cream sticks

1 toothpick

1 large ice cream stick

Tools

A pen

A marker

A ruler

A file

A cutter

1 bottle wood glue

Step 2: The Building

I take 2 ice cream stick, and draw a few lines (image diagram). Then, I cut the sticks and I have 4 parts. Next, I glue them together, and I file the surface according to the lines.

Step 3: The Comm Tower

Remember the toothpick?

I cut it in 1cm long, and I glue it on top of the building.

Step 4: The Land

For the land, I cut the large ice cream stick in two. Using a file, I rasp it into a curve (2nd image), then I glue it together.

Step 5: The Sites

For the two sites, I cut the remaining ice cream stick into two parts (1cm X 1cm). Then, I draw each of them a border. Now, I have the site of north tower and the site of south tower.

Step 6: The Assembly

Now, I have the part of the land, the tower, and the sites ready. I glue its into the position.

Step 7: The Reference

Using the tower location (left image taken from Google Images), I corrected the placement of the parts.

Lastly, the comparison size between a match.

    Hello and great job on this diagram. I have a few quick questions though....
    1. What size were the popsicle sticks cut down to?
    2. You mentioned that this was a scale model of 1:10,000, since I'm not good at math, would you be able to tell me what my scale would be if, I desired the towers to be around 7-8 inches high?

    Thank you in advance for your assistance.
