Half Mini Display
We created this half Mini as the final piece of an in-store green energy display for a large Garden Centre/DIY chain. The model is actually a mock up of an Electric Mini and illustrates how electric vehicles can be charged at home using a standard off-the-shelf charger, available in store. If you look at the image on the left you can see where the cable plugs into the vehicle via what would normally be the petrol filler cap. Apart from creating the vehicle we also had to organize and apply the specially designed vinyls. The client was really pleased with the finished result, particularly as we’d had to rush to get it finished before the bank holiday weekend deadline. As a final point we’d like to just add that this is the first and only time we’ve ever done half a job!
Country House Redevelopment - 1:150 Scale
Occasionally a project turns out to be much more complicated than expected and this was certainly the case with this model. The development comprised a group of holiday villas based round a refurbished and extended old country house set in a steeply sloping and heavily wooded site. The main problem was the lack of accurate information about the original building (much of it had to be created from photographs) and there was only limited information for the complex levels across the site. The various designers involved (architects, landscapers, etc) were still developing their detailed designs but the client needed a model in their marketing suite ASAP. By liaising with all the parties involved we were able to build the model pretty much at the same pace as the designs were evolving. The completed model has also helped the client identify several areas for improving the design and we’re expecting it back in a couple of months for updating.
