WIP “NWS Yorktown” Project

We’re pleased to offer you an inside view of what Marc Leydecker aka Belga12345 is creating right now. It’s a special project, it’s a top-secret project. Ok, not 100 percent top-secret else I wouldn’t inform you about it. This is NWS (Naval Weapons Station) Yorktown, Virginia USA. This is where navy ships load and unload weapons.

Marc is known of his hi quality Virginia airports. All his recent airports have own created SketchUp objects, ranging from authentic buildings, hangars, trucks, buses, containers, pallets, flowers, trees, and so much more.
