Prototype and Scale Modelling - Michael Gale 
 
Can LEGO brick serve as a viable medium for modelling real prototype subjects such as trains, cars, boats, architecture, etc. to near-scale standards?  On the surface, it seems counter-intuitive given the relatively coarse geometry and limited palette of elements available in the Lego system.  However; in practice, many builders are rendering prototype models with dazzling and sublime levels of scale prototype fidelity.  Achieving this goal takes skill, practice, and dedication.  But more importantly, it involves adopting a sensibility or attitude not unlike any other modeller of prototype subjects.  In this session, Michael will attempt to discuss this theme and by example show practical methods builders/modellers use to achieve this standard.  This session will include topics such as choosing a prototype, adopting a scale, research, iterative building, using CAD tools, and the elusive quality of artistic judgement (aka "modellers license").
