    Hi Folks,
    Just thought I'd post pics of my first completed model: Drone 1, aka "Duey" from the 70's classic, "Silent Running". This model was designed by none other than Shunichi Makino of SF Papercraft website. An awesome talent, in my mind.

    I chose to have "him" tending to the plants with a watering can, as captured in the last few minutes of the movie. As my wife says; "It's just too cute!" :mrgreen:

    Come to think of it, while I post this, this is actually my second finished model. The first was just an exercise in whether I could complete a project. As I used to build plastic kits as a boy, I have learnt that I am my worst critic and the outcome has to be good. The model I speak of is the Ares Mars Glider by NASA:

    I have my "Homeworld 2" projects to move onto now. I have started both the Higaraan Torpedo Frigate, and Higaaran Bomber. I will definintely post pics when I'm done. I hope it won't be too long. :)


    Thanks for taking the time to view! :wave:
