Hi folks, a good friend of mine; modelmaker Bill Pearson, asked me to scan a number of old 35mm photos for him and post them up here for people to download. They cover various models he made for films such as 'Dan Dare', 'Flash Gordon', 'Dr Who' & 'Day Of The Triffids' (Plus there are a few more I'm not sure on). He thought some of you might be interested in seeing them. You can download all the images together as one ZIP file linked at the bottom of this post, but just to outline what there is, below you can see raw scans of the eight portfolio pages he gave me, then below that the cropped & colour corrected version of each of the individual photos too. Everything has been scanned at 600dpi so the quality is as good as it's going to get if anyone is using these as reference material. Enjoy!
