Purple Buildings

Did you know that you can view additional information about many of the 3D models available Google Earth (Layers > 3D Buildings)?

Mouse over certain buildings and they appear purple. Click these buildings to view additional information from the 3D Warehouse.

Italian 3D Models

Antonino G is a gifted Italian 3D modeler who has a fondness for historical Europeans buildings. If you are new to 3D models in Google Earth, be sure to check out his 3D warehouse collection.

Antonino has also modeled exceptional modern architecture as well, such as the Stadio San Filippo di Messina. Personally, I love the Castello di Milazzo model he created. Antonino has also gathered a collection of buildings in Sicily, which seems to have more than its share of great models.

Antonino's work is also featured in My Favorite Thumbnails collection, which provides modelers great examples of thumbnail images used to preview individual models in the 3D Warehouse.
