    I meant look around the pit lane at missing pit boxes, etc. Not ads, which I could not care less about.

    Thanks for info about kerb colour. My PVR failed yesterday and did not record the race. The HDTV would have hopefully let me see that! I will also check AMS track to see if those are black or dark green :)

    EDIT: Do you have a link and/or pic of these dark green kerbs? Google has only reference and pics of the new "black and white" kerbs.

    For example: http://twitter.com/andyhone/status/750999427792396288/photo/1

    I believe they are black and white; sort of tribute to old days.

    They're black and white. The owner admitted it's to save money; don't need to repaint black very often, only white.

    LOL...I hope that's not the reason. They look nice, though, in the 60's colours. I would presume it was because it was the 50th running of the F1 race and those were the predominant colours in the old days. If Silverstone has to save money by painting only half the stripes on the kerbs, they are in grave trouble. It was likely British humour and a sly reference to Bernie's ongoing and ridiculous negotiations for next year's race.

    Yes, let's hope we don't have another architecture lesson coming. Extreme accuracy in terms of engineering and architecture of the buildings is not necessary, but extreme inaccuracy or implausibility ruins an otherwise authentic feeling atmosphere....

    Well, I doubt those of us who already posted are the only ones who might think it was off-centre based on the pic posted. Glad it is not, though :)

    You would only face palm if you, yourself, did not understand perspective. The angle chosen in the pic specifically distorts the perspective. You can't figure that out? Or are you only seeing the real modelled object in your mind and bypassing the perspective?

    Post the pic somewhere objective and do a poll asking if the upper part of the building is offset on the pedestal. See what the result is. Or even better, don't ask a specific question and see how many spontaneous responses you get like the ones above from concerned onlookers.

    The doors/windows/ladder make it pretty obvious its centered to me.

    Whats most important though, is that its an amazing model! :)

    Vampire/ghost ducks and buildings potentially collapsing onto the track. Very ominous indeed.

    Might I suggest the good old "duck and cover"?

    Sorry, I'll go home now...
