Payphone Retro style

This is an early 1970’s U.S. payphone. Looks very similar to the ones in the 50’s and 60’s. The basic design could easily be retrofitted for future updates as technology improved, such as in rotary dials, push buttons, coin return and even the style of handheld receiver. Cheaper to update them at the time, rather than remanufacture them.

(pardon the crappy background. The focus is the telephone)


Very Nice :clap:t2:


I featured you on BlenderNation, have a great weekend!

Very realistic looking.

You’re missing one thing though.

“Call Susie at 357-3307 for a good time” should be scrawled on the wall beside it. :grinning:

I beg to differ! The crappy-looking background makes the overall aesthetic even more realistic! :smiley:

I meant that I normally would create a procedural background with geometry or shader nodes. In this case I just used a royalty FREE image of a wall and added a NORMAL to it.

Ah! Thank you for the clarification.

Love the level of detail, right down to the light patina of corrosion on the chrome and the fingerprints on the dial and the bends in the flexi-cable on the handset. Makes it look like it’s seen the minor level of abuse that public payphones of that era would often see. Nice work!
