My good friend Arto recently donated this lenticular postcard of the Saturn V roll-out to the Moonbase collection. Its the one on the left. On the right is the original Bob McCall painting of the roll-out, which was used for the Project SWORD Cape Kennedy Set box top.
The content of the lenticular card fascinates Arto and me. We are convinced that its a model. It certainly isn't the Project SWORD toy that's been used. So who made the model and where is it now?
To get my head around lenticularisation of images, I have turned to a modern field wholly new to me, miniature faking, a technique whereby the content of normal images is made to look like a model. The makers of the Roll-out card in the Sixties couldn't have done this but it might be interesting for me to do now because I can't lenticularise!
Using the free facility on a miniature faking site I have 'faked' two old NASA photographs of Saturn V's roll-out. One of them actually has cars and a helicopter like the McCall and lenticular images above. Here they are. What do you think?
Below are the two original NASA images that I used.
Any thoughts readers?
