As you know, I enjoy modelmaking of all kinds. I was always fascinated by models and miniatures used in film and TV work when I was a kid. I loved to try and work out how the effects were done, and how big the models might be.
Somehow, I found a link to a blog called Matte Shot – a tribute to Golden Era special fx, by a chap in New Zealand. In particular, I fell down a rabbit hole about miniature work in films. It’s a very deep hole, too, but well worth the time as it showcases some extraordinary miniature work from film makers around the world. Prepare to be surprised, too, at just how big some of the miniatures actually were!
