Prop process images
Time was against us, but we're used to working to tight deadlines. Before we began, our team of prop makers had to survey the newly built site and measure it accurately, locating the studs in the wall which would hold the wall and car in place. Once we had this information we could begin the work. The car parts were built around a metal frame and we fitted 3-D printed lights, callipers and brake discs. We vacuum formed the headlight covers and real wheels were fixed in place; everything had to fit exactly to replicate a real Lamborghini. Once we were satisfied that the car was an accurate replica, we had to paint it as the client wanted it paint sprayed in metallic gold. Once it had been painted we lacquered it with a 2-pack polyurethane high gloss lacquer in our dedicated spray booth.
Whilst this was taking place we had the giant prop wall to make. The bricks were MDF and polystyrene and were individually fixed in place to replicate a brick wall with exploding bricks. These were sculpted in polystyrene, fixed to metal rods and hard-coated with resin. They were then textured and scenically painted.
We managed to get everything ready and fitted on site in time and the client was very happy with the high quality finish.
