These two models represents two of many typical and famous lanterns of our past or even present. The first is lantern with Fresnel lens used mostly as anchor light. According international regulations it is defined as a 360 degree white all round light, indicating the vessel showing it is "at anchor", not "under power" or "under sail" or "making way. The lamp must have a visible range of one, two or three nautical miles depending on the length of the vessel. The lens inside the lamp is based on invention of French physicist Augustin-Jean Fresnel. The design enables the construction of lenses of large aperture and short focal length without the weight and volume of material that would be required in conventional lens design. Compared to earlier lenses, the Fresnel lens is much thinner, thus passing more light and allowing lightsources to be visible over much longer distances. Colored globe provided for one of models are used not as anchor light but as positional light.
Kerosene Pressure lamp uses a mantle for generating bright white light when heated by a flame.A pressure lamp has a fuel tank at the bottom with a small pump to pressurise the kerosene. There is a narrow gap up to the top of the lamp called a flue, and at the top of the lamp there is a burner (gas outlet). Directly underneath the burner is the mantle, a fabric bag coated with chemicals which incandesce (glow brightly) when heated by the gas flame. To work a pressure lamp the kerosene needs to be heated to the point where it is vaporised. This is necessary because vaporised kerosene burns much hotter than liquid kerosene. Kerosene pressure lamps are known mostly by brand names of its manufacturers which are different in various parts of the world.
This is complete rework of my original model from 2010, now with support for superfly light emmiting materials, fully uv mapped and with brand new textures, both specular and PBR, ERC controls and poses for Michael 4 and Victoria 4 easily usable with any other human figures.
This is second rework which added full suport for Daz Studio and G8 Male and Female Figures
