Steel mill scene

Steel mill scene

Postby jpachl » Sun Jun 29, 2014 3:35 pm

Due to my job workload, I haven't modelled anything for quite a time. However, today I had an entire Sunday for myself. I used the time to set up a temporary photo scene using some of my models. It's a railroad scene in a steel mill. The background picture was made from a photo I took some years ago in a working steel mill. To better fit to the character of the modelling, the picture was blurred and made to look cartoon-like.

What is the treaded thing in the lower left corner?

Yes me as well, you certainly have a knack with making everything look very real indeed

Joern I think you acheive the height factor brilliantly in your dioramas. The railroad trucks seem to blend very realistically because they look much smaller than the surroundings the same as they do in the real thing. Most models I see have the railroad as a focal point where you have the background as the focal point. Either way it looks great.

Joern, where did you get the backdrop photo from?

It's the back of a steam powered excavator. You can see the smoke stack and the counterweights. The prototype is maybe a little too old to be placed on a modern steel mill scene, so I just showed a small part of the model.

Here is the original photo I modified for the backdrop:

I took this photo in 2011 in the Salzgitter steel mill.
