Saint Petersburg Marina – Scale 1:750
One of the most significant features to note about this masterplan model for a proposed marina development in Saint Petersburg is the high level of detail that can be achieved at this very small scale. Not one of the buildings on this model is more than 35mm tall. And just for good measure and for added impact they all had to light up at the touch of a button. The model was built on a very tight schedule and shipped off to Russia (in a purpose-built flight box) to be used the centrepiece of a major presentation.
Trident Missile – Scale non-specific
At 2 metres tall this model of a Trident Missile is certainly not life-size and we were unable to establish the exact dimensions of the real thing, hence the “Scale non-specific” comment above. Made from a combination of fibreglass and plastics with a painted finish, the model was designed for use as an eye-catching display at exhibitions in the UK and abroad. Because it had to travel we supplied it with a purpose-built protective flight case.
Vertically “Exploded” Model – Scale 1:150
For this project the client wanted a model that would demonstrate the internal layout and main circulation routes of their proposed new offices. We came up with this solution of vertically “exploding” the floor plates (supported on clear acrylic rods) so that the room layout on each floor was clearly visible. With clear labelling of all the main spaces the model is, in effect, a simple, three dimensional diagram that the viewer can easily make sense of.
Model of Refurbished Theatre – Scale 1:150
The most difficult aspect of this project was representing the blue-grey patina and diamond motifs created by the unusual galvanized steel “shingle” cladding. It would have been much easier to show on larger scale model but unfortunately the budget wouldn’t stretch to that. If you click on the Enlarge Image button you can see a close up of the effect we managed to achieve using laser-engraving and multi-coloured paint textures.
Laser-engraved Conference Folder
We used our laser cutter to engrave this company’s logo onto a batch of conference folders to be used as promotional gifts. The client opted for laser-engraving because it produces a subtle, textured finish that has a higher quality feel than conventional surface printing.
