For those of you who have been viewing my web page for awhile may notice that from time to time I enjoy doing occasional composites of my models using Photoshop. That is placing photographs of my models into natural or unnatural settings. Well here are some images of my latest examples. I hope you enjoy them.
First up we have an image of Moebius Models 1/160 scale Orion III Space Clipper from 2001 a Space Odyssey. The image represents the Orion in a blast off accent on its way to an orbiting space station.
Next we have an image of my scratch built Unmanned Soviet Space Probe from 2010 Odyssey II (The Year We Make Contact) flying over The moon Europa, a Galilean satellite of Jupiter. Europa moon surface photo taken by NASA. Europa itself courtesy of God.
After that we have an image of Moebius Models 1/128 scale Seaview from the 60's TV series Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea in an underwater setting. Underwater composites I find tend to be more difficult than they appear. You have to match the object colour to its surroundings and then one has to add a slight blur to everything.
Finally we have an image of Lindberg's 1/200 scale 1950's concept Space Base Space Station.
I sometimes wonder that if the technology to build Space Stations were around in the 1950's if this is in fact what they would have looked like.
