IDC Models, the rapid prototyping and model making division of Industrial Design Consultancy (IDC), has produced animated models for Legoland’s latest venture, a ninja-themed mini Legoland to be installed in outdoor shopping centres across Europe.
Each model was required to be virtually maintenance-free and able to run for 12 months at a time
Legoland came to Datchet-based IDC with an initial idea of what they wanted, which IDC developed from scratch. These included ninja workmen, an ironing-ninja and a dragon boat. Each model included mechanical parts to enable the Lego ninja animations.
Peter Penderdast, head of IDC Models, said: “IDC offers clients a unique model-making package; we have full access to the skills of IDC’s in-house design and engineering team in combination with our first-class model-making facilities, so our service can be tailor-made to suit the client.
“This project is a great example of how IDC works together to deliver an outstanding product.”
Early feedback about the models has been excellent. The first set of models has been installed in Germany where they have proved to be a big hit with the public.
