History The 140 foot steel and wood luxury Steam Yacht Medea was built for a wealthy Scottish land owner and retired officer in the British navy. She was launched in 1904, in Glasgow, Scotland, having been built is an astounding 54 days by an army of skilled shipworkers. She served in three wars, and has sailed under nine flags. She has been painstakingly restored, and is in the permanent collection of the famed San Diego Maritime Museum, where she sails under steam several times a year for invited guests..
This historically accurate and highly detailed model would be an ideal Key Asset to late 19th Century period set design and imaging, and is capable of extreme close-ups and rendering.
The Model The original SolidWorks CAD model was reverse-engineered from many period line drawings and my numerous photographs of the original. I modeled her in the scale of 1:48 to minimize poly count and file size. It is representative of my museum quality work in the field of Industrial Archaeology . Lettering was created with the split-line feature so is not physical geometry and can be used or not to suit.
The high resolution model contains 2,063,688 polys. All parts and/or surfaces were color mapped within SolidWorks. The .obj retains the UV mapping to simplify materials in your own rendering software. Materials ARE NOT included. There is no interior modeling.
Model includes a Water Plane Block (wave material NOT included) and a display base and nameplate, as well as a display case, for use as a display model. Model can be resized to suit in your rendering app.
She is offered only in the OBJ format.
The SolidWorks model was converted into the .obj format using SimLab Animator. Thumbnail renderings were created in KeyShot 7 Pro from Luxion.
