Alan, even with the modifications you made the ESB is still very identifiable in the close-ups. However in the fifth photo it does blend into your skyline as just another skyscraper in a city filled with them. Did you sit the model atop an MTH bank or does it sit on another level just behind the bank? The Lionel lift bridge in the fifth picture also puts into perspective how tall your buildings actually are?
Patrick, we've established that tall is a relative term for this thread and your apartment buildings qualify.
