Hi everyone ! After 2 classic models (www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=69141 and www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=69689 ), I wanted to do a little more artistic model, so I'm starting an Immelmann, with the colors of Banshee coaster, and still with LEDs.

I have done it on Blender to see what it will look:

Can you tell me if you have some recommandations to improve that ?


Sorry for the bad quality but I didn't have more time to have better rendered pics...

Hi everyone !

As you can see, the results is not perfect, this Immelmann is not very smooth and worse: it's too short and to dangerous to be realistic, but I think it's a good start to future complex models.




- size: 1/50 (40 cm)

- track type: B&M sit down coaster

- colors: Banshee coaster

- lighting: white LEDs powered by baterries (2x1,5 V).


I'm waiting for your comments






I tried to respect the design of the main spine B&M rails...




I like the shadow !

Unbelievable man. But I have to believe it.


I love all of the little details you were sure to include. Personally I am in awe at the footers and the spine...and pretty much everything else about it, haha.


How many hours did you put into this?

Thanks !

These 3 models are on a shelf, and I don't know what to do with it, just let it here as decoration...

For the moment I don't have a clear idea about my next model, wich I'll start in september, but maybe a launch system:

The rails would be like "Superman the escape" coaster, with a LIM or LSM launch, a braking zone, and a lighting for the launch !

But I don't know how to do that, so I think I'll need help ! I'll post a video rendered in Blender, and if someone knows how to create the electric system like it appears, I'll really appreciate that !

Ahah that's nice thank you ! I tried to respect the real design of the rail,but that's why the shape is not perfect (I had no plan to do the main spine with all these triangular deformations, so I done it cross ties by cross ties and I deviated from the normal form )


I don't know exactly how much time I worked on it, but maybe 40-50 hours ! The top of the Immelmann took me a lot of time !

Your models are pretty good. I especially like that you include light. Good lighting can make a good model better.


I'm curious about the bases. I assume they are hollow so the LEDs can be mounted from below. What are they made of? It looks like wood (ply or Balsa?) but it could just be brush marks I can see.

I agree with you, the light highlights the model, and it's one of my favorite stages !

That's right, the base is hollow ! But it's just made of cardboard and glue.

I hesitated to add wood to make it more solid, but when I finished the base, I saw that it was very rigid so that was enough.

After paste it in the middle of the base, I dove the rails in the plaster. But you're right wee can clearly see brush marks, but that's not wood

one pic to be more persuasive:
