- The biggest challenge was interpreting and rendering this design as a phisical model. The illustrations of the plane are consistent only in “feel” from one panel to the next. Proportions, shapes and details change constantly in the illustrations. I had to come up with something that would reasonably fit all the different images in the novel and I couldn’t do it with separate models. The scale I settled with (cheated with maybe) was 1/27.
