    Well, this one is loooong out of production - and only 12 exist! I own one of those, but it is sitil not done yet. The construction of the dome-to-grid-connection is a bit tricky...

    Will that be next? That's excellent! Someone did a card model of the drones but they were very small without much detail. I KNOW you will do them justice. You're models amaze and astound! :thumb:

    Thank you so much for sharing them!

    Well, I know Shunichi Makino designed some a while back (we are talking Huey, Dewey and Louie, right?) on his site .

    Yes, those would be the ones and I should correct myself here;

    They are really very good models and quite detailed as far as graphics and proportions. They are obviously meant to be simple models of a previously unavailable subject. I have them myself and I enjoyed building them.

    What a meant by "lacking in detail" was that the designer relied mostly on graphics that suggest raised lines, contours and ridges rather than creating those facets with card-stock. He did a great job as far as I'm concerned, especially considering the size of the models. They're all only 3 or 4 inches and really very good for being that size.

    I really didn't mean to suggest that they weren't worth having...I'm just really excited with the prospect of highly detailed models by a master like uhu02!

    Hi Fiver,

    I wasn't implying anything in my post :); just wanted to be sure I was on the same sheet of music as everyone else. My thought was that perhaps uhu02 and Makino were collaborating on a redesign of the drone trio. I too am looking forward to uhu02's rendition of the (duck) drones. :thumb:

    I am sorry for betraying the expectations.

    Who betrayed anything? Not you uhu02. We did what is called "making a mountain out of a molehill", sort of. We took your remark about the drones and blew it all out of proportion. Our fault. Mea culpa. :oops:

    I like the drones in the scale you have drawn them. They will add a sense of life(!) to the model. Your build, by the way, is looking very good. it is a privilege to watch the master (sorry, Gary P.) at work. :thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Wow! That is small! No matter...that the drones are there at all is impressive.

    I just watched the movie again tonight. I'd forgotten how superb it is. Very quiet...very moral. It put me in mind of "Moon." It was certainly one of Bruce Dern's finest performances.

    The story goes that Bruce got tired of playing psycho cowboys on "Gun Smoke" and "Bonanza," fired his agent, got a new one and Silent Running was the first thing he got. It didn't exactly rocket him to stardom but it did put him on the map.

    I can't wait to build this model!

    Thanks again,

    Fiver

    Not a hijack Ron. You're providing information that will help Red contact Mike Joyce about posting his model.

    Well, these have been around years. I haven't heard any complaints, though I haven't built these specifically, but his other papercraft have been excellent.
