I was lucky enough to have the perfect sunset when it was time to take the photos! And after spending nearly 3 weeks building this model I couldn't have asked for more...
In Realistic Scenery Vol.18 I step you through the process from start to finish in creating this awesome looking night scene but to be honest it looks pretty good in the sunlight as well
Believe it or not but the thumbnail image above as well as the images below have not had any color grading effects done! It's all straight from the camera.
The kit I used to detail the interiors was the 'Ohio Shipping' kit from roometteslighting.com, they make awesome interior kits for a range of the Woodland Scenics DPM plastic kits.
It makes a huge difference to the overall look of the model and brings so much life to the scene.
All the tiny details you see scattered around the building were all 3D printed on the Anycubic Photon 3D Printer, I am constantly amazed at how well the prints come out from this tiny little 3D printer.
If you want to download the files and print them yourself you'll find them here:
Also to see a couple of extra images you can check out the photo gallery...
When it comes to photos I can sometimes have a critical eye, like the above photo for example! There is some of the diorama base visible and the distant lights in the background are very close to the road, but overall it's a nice photo.
If I spent a bit more time on it I could always use photoshop to fix some of those imperfections.
I hope you enjoyed the tutorial video 😃
