'What If' Gallery

Home


What if, or speculative modelling, involves making models which while generally based on reality have a twist or unusual feature which could have happened but didn't. Often each model is accompanied by a fictional 'backstory' which explains how it may have come about.

So here, in no particular order, are some of the 'what if' models I've built over recent years. Click on the headings to open pages with more photos.
