St Andrews Model Railway Exhibition – in 3D!

current location: KY16 8SX

Also from about a month ago, as usual I went round the annual model railway exhibition in St. Andrews (attended by StARLink this time, please “Like” if, unlike me, you’re on Facebook).

I usually take photos of the layouts, as I admire a good model, but I hadn’t taken a 3D camera before. I pointed it at a few layouts but wasn’t expecting great results as it’s pretty point-and-click and I thought it might struggle with scale models. And there were focus problems, and motion blur – but a few came out as the most effective 3D pictures I’ve taken so far, so I thought I’d share the best:

Those are pretty good - the railway layout is especially effective.

And I sorted out the vertical alignment issue - didn't take much fiddling once I took the time to look at the settings properly. Thanks for the pointers!
