    Dear Friends,
    today I've officially delivered my first "commercial" model. I've recently got into making models of buildings for construction companies.
    Here are some shots of the model, which is an open ceiling section with three apartments per floor. One of them was requested to be completed with furnitures. All the work was made with paper board, cardstock and styrene sheets for the walls. No commercial part at all, everything was handmade in 1:50 scale.

    The presentation to the customer was a success, and he already assured that he will be client again and very soon. Wish me luck....

    I proposed this to the design studio I worked for but as per usual it was seen as expensive (software requirements) and not ventured into.

    Their loss.

    Good model though.

    Lovely work, film studios, theatre companies... these look far better than the usual 'artists impressions'

    Thank you everyone for the praise and appreciation. Yes, the model came out nice and I wasted a little too much time in finishing it, but since it was a sort of "business card" for me, I chose to do it in the finest way I could.

    Thank you for your positive comments. Yes, I tried to put an accent on accuracy and cleanliness of construction. Here people are used to much less accurate and precise models, that's why vrtual models of interiors make so much success. But I'm trying to counterbalance the tendency towards real models. This is my challenge for the future.
