Making of "Mercedes. 1545 parts."

Published March 30th, 2012

For this image i took apart a very detailed scale model of a Mercedes SLR 300 Uhlenhaut (manufacturer: CMC). then i placed every single piece in the correct position, took a picture of it and reassembled the whole car in photoshop. piece by piece. from the body shell to the tiny little screws. it took me almost 3 days to shoot all the parts and assemble them.

but once you got the lights set, its a pretty straight-forward process: placing the part, shooting directly to the computer, masking the part in photoshop and place it in the right position. repeat it several hundred times, and the image is done.

Model Car Layout

Some of the parts after disassembly. The whole disassembly took more than a day due to the complexity of the model.

Basic Layout

Experimenting with the position and angle of the main parts.

Single Part: Seat

After the angle of the shot and the light was set, each single part was placed in position and photographed. The wheels in the image act as a reference for reassembling the individual parts in photoshop.

Close Up

Each part had to be masked in photoshop, cut and then pasted into the final image.
