Forced perspective is pretty common in model railroading where you will find
smaller scale structures and scenery the further back you get. N scale
factories on HO layouts, etc.

In the film industry model shops it is so common no one even notices.

Hey, I saw a diorama last week of a (dare I say on this
list?) flight deck/elevator of an aircraft carrier. The
aircraft in the foreground were 1/48, the aircraft in the
background (in the bowels of the ship ---does THAT ever
conjure up an image!!) were 1/72. I didn't even notice the
difference in scale at first. The builder called it "forced
perspective" and it really worked.

See you all later.
