I had to resort to Illustrator to make the design of the face, and some G2H maps in PhotoShop. Then, I raced to assemble the theodolite. Somewhere in the middle, I modified the texture to make a better corroded brass. Since it's shiny, I made a quick "room" for it to "reflect upon", so to speak.
Thanks for calibrating your eyeballs. Tomorrow I have an Orrery!

If there was a rating higher than Excellent, I'd be marking it down. The detail on the device is so realistic, it's unbelievable. Very impressive!!

Very nice model indeed; very much like your brass texture. I've been trying to make a convincing one for the last 2 days with no sucess 8-(

Nice work. But ground and walls lacks of bump. Shadows are applied on wall just like it was 2D plans.
