Inspiration and Designing

My dad is a pilot for Delta Airlines, so I’ve learned and experienced a lot of things revolving around airplanes. It all started when my dad asked me if I could build him an Airbus A330 (which is the plane he flies). At first I was a little hesitant, for I had never constructed any sort of modern day aircraft. Eventually I started prototyping and designing on Lego Digital Designer. After that, I became very interested in the project. In six months, it was completed!

Model Development

First I started prototyping in Lego Digital Designer. After that, the model was ready to be ordered; but sadly, procrastination came into the picture. It was a few more weeks until the task was fully completed. In the end, it took three Bricks & Pieces orders to finish the task. Three custom stickers were also designed for the set and were used in the real life model. Then I pondered for a long time whether I should photograph the model in real life or use 3D renderings. That’s when I started using Blender, and rendering became extremely fast and realistic. The model was rendered, and some real photos were added in too. Finally, the digital part of the entry was finished and submitted…

A Few Words from the Designer
