African play wheel water pump showcase model

African play wheel water pump showcase model

This model was commissioned by Rolls-Royce plc for a landmark presentation at the L.D.C. in Derby.

The model depicts the 52nd well commissioned for Malawi to bring a clean water supply to the local villages. The well pump is operated by a play pump – a simple kiddies roundabout!

The brief for the model project was to show the pump in operation. This part of the project was handed to a small team of RR graduates who designed and created all the mechanics. Besides the pump, the brief was to include a school building and the high level water storage tank. All this had be set in an African landscape to form a convincing diorama. The last challenge on the model was to populate it with scale African children. This completely brought the scene to life!

Presentation required the design of a sturdy plinth to display the model at eye level, as well as providing a clear protective acrylic case for easy viewing.

This has been the largest commercial commission to date that delivered both to the brief and, most importantly, keeping to the strict deadline.
