I took a picture of my desk yesterday
This still fantastic model was, of course, built by Dennis Bailey.

Re: Yes, the batteries were included.

Wow. Thats nice. I had no idea Dennis was so handy with a model kit.

Is that a modification of an existing kit, or a scratch-build, or what?

Cool catch no matter what!

I think someone is just very good at compositing...

Nice work!

Thank you so very much!
You just made my day.
Thank you!








But, this (the ship) is indeed a CG-model composited into a picture of my desk .
I wish it were a real model.

Re: Yes, the batteries were included.

Nice render. Of course, it's a little blurry... was that a "cheat" to help with the compositing, or just an issue with JPG-ing it for the net?

Re: Yes, the batteries were included.

Very nice. The blurriness may be helping with the composite but it also looks much more realistic that way. Props.

No, no cheat. The original image was already blurry (I used the camera on my mobil phone [HTC-Touch ]). So, I just tried to match that...

AH... so you had to match the blur of the phone's camera... Given that, that's a remarkably nice job!

Re: Yes, the batteries were included.

That's one of the best photo composites I've seen in a LONG time! The only thing that gives it away (besides the fact that I instantly recognized Dennis's Phoenix model) is that the lighted nacelle caps should have caused at least a faint diffuse reflection against the woodgrain of the desk.

Holy cow. I was convinced that was a real model!
