...Interesting...
Well done.
I wonder; how did you manage such a high quality perfect 360 camara view?
Do you have a standard for that?

I have a turntable display (like the ones used for jewelry or scale models)
then I just cut the movie to get an almost perfect loop
the only bad part is that the camera was on automatic exposure, but it's not extremely problematic here

Well, you've got balanced lighting there, so that shouldn't make much of a problem - I don't see it so it worked out fine I think ^^
And the ISOPTERA parts are bent by hand from remnant parts?

yeah in this one the exposure was quite even
the model was done entirely from aluminum rectangular parts the size of the wings, cut with scissors and glued together

Beautiful work, but i have problem with the titel because "Isoptera" are termites and this looks like a dragonfly so "Odonata" would be better. I don't want to be a smart-arse, but as a zoologist i had to say it...im sorry :(

well true, I knew that... but I sometimes use denominations without any regard to their usual meaning
here I used "isoptera" for its direct Latin meaning, iso-equal ptera-wing, wings of equal size, shape etc.

i thought that you meant equal wings, but i couldn't know that you know the Latin name of the insect. lots of people don't and i just want to prevent confusions :)

it's ok I really appreciate it when people tell me things that fall into their domain of expertise (I usually try to document myself as best possible when I say something or choose a certain title, but things do escape me from time to time) :)

HOLY COW. What did you make this out of? Spare parts?

it was all made from equal rectangular scraps of aluminum (the size of the wings), from the mechanics department at my university :) a friend brought them to me years ago and this is what I made of them - cut them with scissors, glued them together
