Default Galactica Model with lighting

This is a Revell 1997 "re-issue" of the classic Battlestar Galactica model kit.
The model was built and lit by the talented Wayne Hough.

I saw some of Wayne's work from an ebay auction of another Galactica
model and knew I had to commission him to build mine if he would.

He took me up on my offer and I'm very pleased to show photos
of the fine job he did.

The ship windows are lit with a white LED Light source and fiber optics.
The ship engines have their own LED lights.

A weathering "wash" has been applied to the model to bring out the fine details.

Wayne also added back-lit interiors to the landing bays.

THAT Does look Great !




Makes me wonder if I could try and mimick that in CGI.
Maybe using Lights or lens flares or even Glow materials.

( see, that's 2 things I learned today from reading 2 posts)

Default Re: Galactica Model with lighting

I do that quite frequently in iClone, Randall. When I make my CG models in Blender, and transfer them to iClone, I create the lights there. Sometimes they are "planar" light effects, and other times they are made from primitive shapes. And, they can be individually adjusted...so if you do a space battle, and need to show power going out in certain areas of the ship, all you have to do is turn down the lights for that area.

I'm working on a CG space battle and might try and incorporate a couple of these shots of the model to mix in.

Kinda easy since the Galactica seldom ever made fancy maneuvers on the show.
