This is my model of SkyDiver.
It is 3' long (1/36th scale) and is a Garage Kit from Studio2 Models.
It's fitted with two aqua jets and is radio controlled for patrolling the boating look on the lookout for UFOs!
Thanks for looking :)...
Things can escalate quickly.
I started off with this:
Which developed into this:
And now it has become this:
So, hopefully, I will end up with a model of Cloud Base, or a new coffess table!:D
Imai's model of the Spectrum Helicopter has been around for some time.
It is a fairly accurate representation of the studio model.
Every so often one pops up on E-bay for a reasonable price.
I was lucky to get one for good fee.
The cockpit needed modification to make it look like the...
I built my SHADO Mobile a few years ago now.
I was never happy with the finish, so I decided to re-do it, incorporating the gun turret and mortar as scene in "Sounds of Silence".
I managed to get hold of an original Tiger Joe for the wheels & tracks, and most of the original greeblies.
This is my scratch built S.I.D.
He started out as with a Christmas tree bauble and a section from the second stage of Airfix's Saturn V.
The rest is plastic card & various "Greeblies" from my spares box.
From nose to tail, not including the solar panels, it is 26cm/10".

This is my studio scale Interceptor from Gerry Anderson's UFO.
It is a "garage kit" from Studio 2 Models.
I did start a WIP thread, but after I got it painted & decalled, my matt varnish yellowed the paint, so I sanded it all back, and started again.
I used Tamiya's acrylic sation white...
I remember seeing the sole surviving UFO Interceptor at a Fanderson convention many years ago, and I always wanted one.
Now courtesy of Studio 2 Models http://studio2models.webs.com/ there is a studio scale model, 23" length, approx 1:24th scale.
The main body halves are cast in fibre glass...
This is my scratch built 1/24th scale Northrop HL-10
It was an experimental lifting body, one of three designs used by NASA and the USAF to test lifting body theories.
Some of the discoveries from the tests were used in the design of the Space Shuttle.
The HL-10 also featured in "The Six Million...
I've been working on my Saturn V
It is the new issue with the corrected Command and Service Module.
The new parts are an improvement over the old ones.
Unfortunately, the Launch Escape System is the old one and is a bit clunky in detail.
This shows the kit part alongside the new parts I have...
Here are som pictures of my studio scale Y-Wing I built a few years ago.
Its Scratchbuilt and I did my best to use as many "original" parts as I could source.
The engines on the studio models were Airfix Saturn V 1st stages which when I built this were not available, except for silly money on...
A few years ago, I started on a model of Moon Base, but put it on hold due to various reasons.
Today, while I was in the loft looking for something else, I found the parts neatlly stashed away.
Here are some pictures of one of the spheres, wih its pedestal and half of the connecting corridor.
