Designer Portrait: Model Train Designer Kees-Jan van Vessem Builds Incredibly Detailed Scale Model Worlds
OCTOBER 12, 2016
And that’s exactly what Dutch railway and model train designer Kees-Jan van Vessem has been doing with his “ Rail-Kees ” label and webshop for years now. Over the years Kees-Jan has created more than 10,000 scale models of trains and trams. Typically, he starts drawing the models in 2D (with Inkscape ) and then transforms them into 3D models by using 3D modeling software like FreeCAD. FreeCAD (the software he is using) is free to use and a great starting point.
