Sketchup 3D Challenge #127 - Memorial

Google Sketchup 3D Challenge presents Challenge #127:


Sunday 10th of July, 2011 - Thursday 21st of July, 2011

Entry Models

For this Challenge you'll need to create a memorial, your own design or existing. For an event that has actually happened, or something that may happen in the future (Nuclear war, Scifilicious?)! Maybe this can get you some inspiration: Sunday the 17th, the third Sunday of July, is national Ice Cream day! Maybe a memorial for Mrs. Mary Eales, the inventor of Ice Cream? Have fun!

3D Challenge tag: "3D Challenge 127"

The winner of previous 3D Challenge 126 - Waterpowered Space Grinder-Kennel combination is:

Jedi Charles, with The Dog Ground! It's great to see how everyone interpreted the subject in completely different ways, which gave us six beautiful creations! I bet, when it finally is the space age, and humans will be replaced by supersmart monkeys, they'll look back at these models and say: ,,Why would we need anything like that?"
