Wizards Stadium: Reality vs Model (part 1)

I was able to take some photos of the Wizards stadium model yesterday and wanted to share them. The model shots are paired up with photos taken last week at the stadium construction site. I would have liked to take the cover off the model but was not allowed to so some of the shots are not as nice as I would like.

Roof truss - this is the first roof truss to go up on the stadium. We are looking roughly southwest towards kansas speedway.

Roof truss - all the roof trusses along the roof. Can't wait to get that shot for real.

The corner between the side with all the suites and the stage end

The model of that corner from another angle

The stage/scoreboard end - you can see the roof support beams get shorter as the go along

The stage/scoreboard end - On the model you can see the scoreboard and the slope of the roof

Part 2 will be online soon...
