This is a ‘finished’ presentation model in styrene plastic. It was part of my masters thesis project (R&D FACILITY FOR INTERNATIONAL SUBMARINE ENGINEERING CO.) The reflective water is ‘wet-look’ bathroom tile. I built it in 3 weeks – very different time scale from a sketch model in foamcore and glue gun. I actually built it in foamcore originally (:-) and then got talked into doing a styrene model (:-( One important difference between finished and sketch models is that you need well developed design drawings for the finished presentation model. In contrast the plans are developed simultaneously with the sketch model, so the model and plan affect each other. Also, the styrene model is not ‘fun’ after the first one. The fun is in the exploratory and developmental aspects of the foamcore sketch model.
