The excellent 3D models from Guillaume Godin

Every so often we like to feature excellent 3D modelers on the blog, and today’s example is certainly worthy of being showcased. In the past few months we’ve shown you amazing examples from people like Peter Olson, Darian Robbins, jgago93 and others, and today we’ll be showing you the work of Guillaume Godin.
As pointed out on the Google Sketchup Blog last week, Guillaume has built some truly great models. Below is his model of le marché Bonsecours in Montreal, showing some sharp architecture with high quality textures on it.

Another great example is the Shell gas station shown below. A gas station might be an odd choice for us to show off, but it’s a great example of 3D models helping to make the world more realistic. By including details such as the sign, light poles and individual gas pumps, Guillaume is making that area much more true to life for people that browse it in Google Earth.

As of now, Guillaume has uploaded 157 models to the 3D Warehouse and 72 of them have been accepted into Google Earth. As you can see from the images above, his models are incredibly well-done and are a great addition to Google Earth!
