    While you are waiting for some models from The Trpods check out the Martian tripod model at this site:
    Cut & Paste Sci-Fi
    Click on Martian Tripod

    It is from a production of The War of the Worlds.

    hmmm....

    Still would like to see:

    Micronauts (vehicles and figures)
    Sulaco (from Aliens)
    Yamamota (from Starblazers, a smaller and cheaper version that the one
    from Bandai)
    Nostromo (from Alien)
    I'm sure there are a host of others that I just can't recall right now...

    A big GodPhoenix and all of the individual vehicles from Gatchaman. Perhaps a transmutated 'Fiery Phoenix' to be printed on and built from transparency film?

    You just may get your wish for the SDF and the prometheus and deadelus.

    would post pic or at least link to pic but can't seem to upload anywhere. BTW the pic once posted is not of what the model currently looks like this was a much earlier version.

    [​IMG]

    okay pic uploaded to image shack couldn't seem to upload to this site so this works for now. BTW this is the old version of the model that was done sometime ago and inbetween lunch breaks and when ever the new version was done and is stil a major wip. But just wanted you guys to see a preview the new one does have the DEadelus and Prometheus attached and working on eventually having the armd version as well but that's to come.

    Hey guys, How about a C3Po? I've got R2D2, but he looks lonely. Anybody interested?

    okay peeps here is a list of things I have wips for and as I encounter issue they either get done or change to something else, Sorry I get bored of doing the same thing. MAJOR A.D.D on my part.

    legioss_fighter (being reworked, to make transformable)
    daedelus (almost done)
    prometheus (almost done)
    SDF1 (almost done)
    cyclone bike and battle form (my own design,almost done)
    valkyrie-VF-2 (needs some major retooling)
    yf-19 excalibur (reworking, to make transformable)
    And more from the Macross/Robotech type

    Voltron Lion version (really basic version, will be more detailed)

    RoboCop (issues with getting to match on both side, looks wrong)

    Tekkaman/Technoman/Teknoman or however anyone else spells it. Based of the series refered to in UK as Technoman. (very basic looking right now)
    [​IMG]

    Terminator T800 endo skeleton (all most done)
    also couple of the other terminator thing like the tank or the flying one.
    [​IMG]

    Ironman (Issue with head design)

    Predator (Again head issues, not really a people person, designing I mean)

    Aliens/ Powerloader (I know there are a couple out there but way to complex to build and just look funny)

    Misc Halo stuff

    Johnny Five (in redesign, tracks look odd and don't build well)

    Optimus prime from the new movie (got him done in a basic format and textured, but not impressed with how he looks needs more work, Buddy already adding more detail for me since is more of a humanoid design and I suck at it)

    And my baby is the ABC warrior from Judge Dredd Mwahaha (yes found some good reference materials)
    [​IMG]
    no this isn't what it looks like but is very close, had to be realistic in the design or else would have taken forever to design.

    Tons of Sci Fi ships but those or on the backend of my list. Anyone interested in helping out anywhere let me know bunch are still in model design phase so not even remotely ready for the pepa translation yet. If you are looking for anything just ask me I may have something I can send you to work with or can point you in the direction of materials for your own design.

    There have been a lot of spaceship designs in the various B movies from the 50's & 60's. I'd like to see those in card. I have the Luna and WWood Tribute ships from . . . OK, I can't seem to remember his name and I'm at work so I don't have access to my files on my computer at home. . . But I am trying to get some skills built up before trying to attack those. I have a number of ship pictures collected from different movies which I'd like to see made into models, as well as a number of designs from the comics of the period.

    I also have a copy of the spaceship designs book that was produced about 2 years ago with 3-vu's of quite a number of designs.

    Now if I could just get all of them in the same scale; 1/96, 1/72, or 1/48; it would be the beginnings of a great collection

    Tom Williams, Jr.

    The designer's name just came to me - - - I think. I believe it was Jayo Sutton who designed those beautiful ships. I think he was also working on the Cosmostrator from the Czech(?) film about Venus.

    A few of the mecha I have done basic 3d models for are below, the Legioss Fighter is in one of my old threads. I was going to make it into the gerwalk and battloid but I don't think I need to

    They were done originally in tru space about 3-7 years ago but wouldn't talk much to get them sorted.


    I have to admit to having an Starfleet video some where, was a show I liked :) the X Bomber would make an excellent paper model. any takers?
