Rockwellcm, have you tried "Burns And Harris" for the Letraset stuff.
They had it, not that long ago.

The non-airbrush quote was from Martin Bower.

Brian used an airbrush all the time. All those gaseous starfields and space backgrounds were artworked by Brian with an airbrush in addition to dirtying down the models.

Well, a memory for certain subjects anyway. I remember the quote because the Swift is heavily airbrushed which suggested the dirtying down was done at the studio but don't ask me to tell you exactly where the quote comes from but I remember reading it too.

i was given a bit of hope reading the article as i had never owned an airbrush until the late 1980,(i am still useless with one!)

Those launchpads look fantastic and you really brought them to life with your artwork. Are the models accurate to the show or are they something WARP designed?

Default Warp Lift

The lift is represented in Space 1999 season 2 episode:`Space Warp'
the bit where Maya goes nuts,and gets to an Eagle,and lifts off inside the hanger

it looks pretty close,but the studio one only has 1 leg which is larger,the Warp one has 2.

it is only on show for a few seconds,and only from one angle

I am not sure if the small set of steps at each side on the model are on show,or if they exist on the studio one (without checking)
