Special effects miniature model for film 'The Da Vinci Code' (2006)

At the time of filming, the Rosslyn Chapel (the Collegiate Chapel of St Matthew) was going through restoration, therefore was covered in scaffolding and a roof protection. 


In the absence of a usable location, Mattes & Miniatures were called upon to build a 1:10 scale special effects miniature version. The model was highly detailed with faceted stain glass windows for added realism.
