Here are a few images , one for fun that I started last year based on a UFO fabrication workshop that I have still not finished yet, and the other is one of my digital art prints, a Ships Compass(My Design).

Another one of the UFO with toggles and wedges in place ready to tack up, just waiting for an alien welder to get back from a shutdown on his starship. I must look for a few 3d aliens to add in to the scene when I get time.

A few welded fabrications for my digital art prints, sorry about the watermark, but I have not finished them yet, so don't want any half finished versions floating around the web, as people may land on them when looking for my artwork. The main idea with the fabrications, is getting  a realistic looking weld on the fabrications.

A welded pipework example again with the emphasis on finished weld appearance, this would represent, say a tig weld or orbital welded butt weld and flange weld.

Fantastic looking work Michael.  I look forward to some more realism in the weld joints.
They are just tooooo perfect, IMHO.  :)

Yes, very nice indeed - a winner.
You're obviously heading in the right direction!  8)

Thanks Tim, quite a bit of work getting an acceptable brass, but looks okay in the full size version.

The butt welds in the pipe fabrication are too smooth , although you can achieve that kind of finish with orbital welding, I took an orbital welding course for Foster Wheeler about 25 years ago, and surprising how perfect a finish you can get. The welds need temper colours really, running along the weld and also along the sides of the weld on the pipe itself, also some ground or cleaned up areas either side of the welds. 

Creating realistic manual welds is a different scenario, and will need a variety to mix and match in a finished image, some vertical and some horizontal, also some with a split cap.

I am part way through a model of ship' binoculars, which are also made in brass, trying to build up a collection of instruments for my artwork, but sometimes a slow process as I am designing from scratch with no prior knowledge on the particular instruments.
