My Atlanta Georgia Temple Model is another 2 stage model. I originally made it for Google Earth. You can see it here if you like. Or you can see it by opening Google Earth and viewing the Temple location with the 3D building Layer turned on. The only other version created was this one. It is as high detail as can possibly be. I did not get good photos of the stained glass, so that is not quite right, and I do not have good detail on the dock side of the temple either, but it has not been my habit to model that anyway.

    These are beautiful but there appears to be a problem with matching the video with the title. I just watched a video of the Atlanta Temple, which is what I selected. But the web page showed the Albuquerque New Mexico Temple.

    • Thanks for the Notice. Albuquerque became my “template” for everything else, and apparently I did not always catch all the points that needed correcting…
