Quote from: Peter Capaldi on May 06, 2020, 10:55 amThat's amazing! Are you planning to make a custom exterior?

No but I might do a MK5 ( 1953 ) Met Box.

Realised only recently that the internal phone cupboard had a glazed top panel so that the glass phone door could be illuminated by the top 100W lamp that also illuminated the interior and top signs:

Experiments with windows:

One with folded over bars.

Also different fixed frame widths 2/8" and 3/8"

Noticed the white painted edges on V28 ( Wimbledon Chase Scotland Yard film ). 3/8" ?

Mostly these seem to be painted blue.

Noticed that W45 had surround painted white as well.

hey, that's some nice blender render
i'm impressed. if you need any help with sketchup btw, i'm your man. i've been using it for 7years or so.
i'm my self trying to start using blender, i love it, despite how hard it is to be a beginer, i can emphasise

Angelus Lupus

It really comes to life with the added texture!
A mixed-up non-conformist, trying to fit in.

Mk5 Georgian Wired Glass experiments:


Unlike the Hendon Mk5 , my memory is that the windows used obscure wired glass

not clear wired glass.

Might need to increase the amount of obscure.

After seeing Timegirl's new lighting,

Timegirl New Lighting

I created a render that uses just one 100W lamp as shown
on Met Box Diagram.

Note that this single bulb illuminates the inside, all four roof signs and the glass telephone door panel via the glazed panel in the top of the telephone cupboard.




Need to add Blue Pygmy lamp at some point.


Fantastic renders, the sense of realism is astonishing!
