The miniature worlds of Gerry Anderson

At Sell! towers we were all very sad to hear of Gerry Anderson's death over the festive season. A wonderfully talented creative and meticulous craftsman. Whilst reading some of the many tributes I came across Fred's amazing flickr set containing photos of the incredible miniature worlds and environments Anderson created for his shows and films. The sets look like they were all built to 1:24 scale to match the model cars and the attention to detail is phenomenal. Check out all the distressing, aging and tyre marks, particularly in that moody back alley shot. Wonderful stuff.

Who needs CGI, eh?

All the lettering, like the DALGO sign above, was created with letraset rub downs apparently.
