Model Commentary:

The Gainsborough was the second model that I made, and it is one of a half-dozen that are from the weekend when I first started to play with Sketchup. Those early models were all of buildings in the Oliver area; which is where I live. Initially I had intended to focus on Oliver, but that quickly changed and I moved on to modeling the larger downtown area.

Starting in Oliver was a good though, because the early models were a learning experience. This shows in these models - particularly in their textures - and one day I hope to go back to update them.
