Starship Modeling Artwork

For almost 30 years, now, I've been building plastic model kits. Some were bought from a store, others were "kit-bashed" (models which cannot be found in stores, but built from parts of models that could).

I've seen many Star Trek-based home pages out there containing 100% digitally created 3-D models, so I decided to put my own little twist on it. I incorporated the best of both the analog and digital worlds to make these various images. Each image is broken down into three parts: (1) "Before" pictures (raw photographic footage), (2)"After" pictures (employing various digital remastering techniques on the original "Before" photographs), and (3)schematics of the vessels contained within the images, for those of you who want to get up-close & personal with the subject matter.

The long and the short of it is, "Forget not whence came thy inspiration!" (Thanks, Davey), keeping in touch with the roots of the original model-masters; the predecessors of the digital age. Model building is not dead! After all, look at ID4...

By popular demand, I have included larger versions of my Battlestar and Gunstar schematics for those of you out there who need some basis of building 3-D digital models of these ships. Hope they're helpful - let me know if you use them, I'd like to see how they turn out realised.
