    Mastermodels 1968

    I stumbled across this on YouTube and guessed it was Mastermodels of Hounslow, who along with Space Models built most of the hero craft for the Anderson productions. A brief glimpse of some Thunderbirds and the Joe90 car. (PS. Anyone know the tags to display a video on here?)...

    Sky One Work in progress.

    Thanks to chatting with Tenement01 I have ended up taking a slight Thunderbirds sabbatical to recreate the original Don Showalter mesh that had become horribly corrupted in translation. So I have made entirely new high-poly geometry based on his original dimensions plus some more accurate...

    Missing Photobucket fix

    Original Red Dwarf Starbug up for auction

    I'm not sure how many they made, or who made it, but C21 effects man Peter Wragg directed the effects. Reserve at £2,000 but I expect it will go for a lot more. Tons of hires close-up images if anyone wants research material for a build...

    3D Printing, Kit part database and Rogue One

    I recently came across an article with John Knoll, the VFX supervisor on "Star Wars: Rogue One" explaining how they rebuilt CGI models based on the original Episode IV miniatures, and rather than buy tons of kits to have them destroyed, they laser scanned complete kits in their entirety and had...

    "Trapped in the Sky" recreation

    Hi guys, I am looking to make a shot-for shot CGI recreation of the pilot show as a little hobby. I won't do the whole show, basically just the Fireflash bits, and leave the puppets "as is", but I am trying to capture the Meddings 60's style of models, lighting and photography. As you might...
