    hey,

    I know the Avatar movie is very recent, but I would love to be able to build some of the earth ships and vehicles like the gunships and AMP suits. I have been anxiously watching the forum for the past few weeks, hoping to see a thread... and after enough waiting figured I'd start it myself!

    Does anyone know if there are any models avaliable OR would anyone be interested in working on them either solo or in a group fashion? I saw a few of you do an amazing job with BSG, and I feel like it might be time for an reunion!

    Thanks,
    z5

    I think we need to do a little more research before starting them. I myself want to do a hyper-detailed Scorpion using Metasequoia, but before I start it I need to get a good set of orthographics. Maybe the new art books will have a nice set.

    I would like to see some models of some of the weapons from this movie also (Trent, Jan, Uhu, are you listening? lol) I found a few reference images and i'm sure more will be forthcoming with time.

    I think the AMP Suit is more intresting to build as an papercraft. Looks very difficult to buil but i try this to rebuild in 3D.

    I third alien's remarks, I'd love to have the AMP suit, scorpion, and dragon gunship all preferably on the same scale!

    The Scorpion would be a nice model. :mrgreen:

    Getting the model from the game is a good ideea if you want the right proportions, but the question is: how?

    I read the designer's blog. The idea of using clear tape for the canopy glass is sweet! I never thought of that.

    AT-99 Scorpion Gunship download


    Here can you download this model...

    take a look on the paper-replika.com page, there are links to download.

    scales to build: 1/84 and 1/38 + instructions

    But i think this model needs an update of detail...the cockpit could be looking of more detail and i missed the open sides behind the wings were soldiers can sitting. but it can modified very easy i think.
