Gipuzkoa, Spain wins the 2012 Model Your Town Competition

We’ve talked about Pedro Domecq Aguirre, better known as “PeterG”, quite a few times on here. Most recently we showed you his amazing 3D model of Saint Basil’s Cathedral. He recently got some big news, and him and his teammate Josetxo Perez Fernandez were announced as the winners of Google’s 2012 Model Your Town Competition!
Of the six finalists in the running, their models of Getaria, Gipuzkoa, Spain were voted as being the best. As you can see from the image below, they certainly did an awesome job:
