We have crawled the internet for some of the most stunning 3D scans and models to be created by visual 3D artists and modellers. Check out these excellent examples if you’re stuck for inspiration!

La statue de la France renaissante, which translates to “France Reborn” is a remarkable equestrian statue located in central Paris, between the banks of the River Seineoverlooking the Eiffel Tower. The statue was constructed by the Danish Sculptor Holger Wederkinch, and was donated by the community of Danes residing in Paris in 1930.

This 3D scan features 66.7k faces and 30.8k vertices, enabling the statue to boastfully display its intricate detail.

The Marbore Jet Engine or Turbomeca Marboré is a small turbojet engine produced by Turbomeca between the 1950s and 1970s. The most turbojet engine was used in the Fouga Magister and the Morane-Saulnier MS-760. Furthermore, it was also licensed for production in the US as the Teledyne CAE J69.

This beautifully detailed 3D model includes 248.8k faces and 124.2k vertices.

Place de la Nation is located on the eastern side of Paris, found between Place de la Bastille and the Bois de Vincennes. Created by the French sculptor Jules Dalou, this bronze sculpture was erected to mark the centenary of the French Revolution, purposefully situated in the area most well known for its use of guillotines during the French Revolution.

This 3D model was captured using almost 500 photos of 24 MPixel (taken from the ground) with ContextCapture.

This impressive 3D model of a Messerschmitt Bf 109 was created in 3DS Max, and fully textured in Substance Painter. The artist has even gone so far as to model another aircraft being shot down by the German World War II fighter aircraft.

The Temple of Bel was an ancient temple located in Palmyra, Syria. In 2015 the temple was partially demolished by explosives.

This detailed 3D visualisation shows how the main entrance of the Temple of Bel still stands amongst a large pile of rubble, which was destroyed by Daesh fighters.

the 3D reconstruction of the temple was carried out using photos shot with a drone and from the ground.
