Video and Model Details

The original Apia Samoa Temple burned to the ground near the end of a remodel. This one was built in it’s place. I made this model, and I don’t really like the way the rendering turned out. However, after I finished the rendering I found that the model had become corrupt. I’m going to have to start over from the simpler model I made for Google Earth, I am afraid. Find that particular model below.

This is my Google Earth model for Apia Somoa. It is more stripped down than the video version, to meet restrictions for Google Earth.
