Highway to Istanbul

This is our largest set – as it tends to become large when you have a bus traveling on a highway in a continuous camera move. Even though our bus is quite tiny, we ended up with a 6.50 m. x 4.50 m. set (basically as much as we could fit into our Waterloo Studio in Hamburg).

Jörg Steegmüller worked on the main construction, sculpting hills and the highway while Nina and Susanna worked on the details like the trees and telegraph poles. (Yes, those in the picture below are tiny, pin-sized isolators molded and cast from 4 different hand-made models.)
