NAGRA IV-S Portable Stereo Tape Recorder - probably the most successful and long lived portable professional tape recorder ever made.

The 'Nagra' was a legend in it's own lifetime, and remains an object lesson in quality of engineering together with remarkably simple and unpretentious functionality. Beautifully made and until just a few years ago just about every film and television program produced had its sound recorded on one of these impeccable machines.

These remarkable recorders were invented by the Polish audio designer, Stephan Kudelski, and has been manufactured at the Kudelski/Nagra factory in Cheseaux, Switzerland since the early 1960s.

AutoCAD - 3D Studio MAX - V-ray - Photoshop

Inspired by a well known vector illustration by Yukio Miyamoto.

Dear dangeruss,
All of your works are great.

Thank you for introducing my Adobe Illustrator work.
I used it for sample data in my book published in 2005.

This is the same subject I created in 3D LOL.

There were a few places where your model was different from the actual one. The head is curved along the flow of tape. So the head protection cover must be curved. The switch on the red volume is also curved.

Thank you!

Your 3D work is very nice too - You may have had better references than I found to spot those details that I didn't see (or notice). Thanks for your kind comments and careful critique!

Absolutely breathtaking!

Excellent job, the quality of the vector matches the quality of the real machine.

It's a 3D model and rendering - not a vector

I wasn't quite sure what to call it, so I said Vector. I should have figured that it was a 3D model.
