Almost complete - LEGO model digital render

We’re used to receiving weird and wonderful requests for LEGO® model commissions at Bricks McGee, but this was something totally new to us: a cable tensioner.

Cable tensioners are used on ships laying cable at sea, to keep the cable at a reasonable tension. They tend to sit on a ship’s deck, and are in themselves complex pieces of engineering, as you can see.

Our client Maritime Developments commissioned a LEGO® model of a new cable tensioner product they were launching, for use at exhibitions as a demonstration of the product’s size and configuration.

Due to the complexity of the LEGO® model, we created the model digitally using Bricklink’s Studio software, before building the model physically.
