From Concept to Product….

Published on by in Retro Replicas

Our attraction models will go through quite a process to go from concept to reality. We have outlined the process so you can see what goes on behind the scenes.

These photos are from my company when we were chartered to make a diecast metal and plastic model of a massive electrical generator. In real life these are nearly the size of a bus, but we were asked to make it 1/25th in size. Follow along below from CAD to finish product!
