Wow for only 2 hours! The grating looks perfect....if you don't mind me asking how did you do that? I know I am going to have alot of difficulty with that part.

Well i made a imageplane with some photo reference, so getting the proportions right was quite easy after that

Here's another update: +/- another 4 hours

Looking great. Tell me, did you model the gothic lettering completely by hand, or did you
use a font?

Hey thanks for all the reply's everyone!

Dominikmk:
I'm using Cinema4d

Lolec:
I'm just doing the clock face itself and some of the details around it, not the whole tower

JustChrisThe instcription is completely made with extruded splines

Here's another update:


I mirrored it, so the clock on the left may look strange
