Hi all! Here's my model ORCA in homage to JAWS - my favorite movie of all time! Built at 3' x 3' Took over a year to do, but as there are not many out there, it was worth it! It was a virtually complete overhaul of previously built model I bought that was made by someone else, but I was not satisfied with the details, so I upended the whole thing in stages and re-built most of her with the exception of the hull and pulpit.

Seems like it's the League of extraordinary Gentlemen...silly flick actually. Sean Connery and a few other folks. That was the representation of Nemo's Nautilus. neat looking but way over-done. IMOGreat collection; great work! What is the origin of the ivory ship with the silver scroll work - very unique looking!
Wow that is an amazing span of work!I was up in the loft this weekend finding the Christmas decorations and doing some general maintenance so most of the stuff up there had to come down. Including the last 25 years worth of models.
I've already posted these on Facebooks Starship modeller so some of you may have already seen them.
I apologies for the dust
The Millennium falcon is the oldest one here built in the 70's long before we could get all the pretty pictures of the internet or freeze frame DVD's for an accurate paint job. You had to use the box art and remember what you saw when you were in the cinema. Hence the overdone weathering (I was only 13 ).
make room, build shelves, do what you gotta do, you can't stop now...pick a room and in that room pick a wall with no window. build an egg crate style shelving deal floor to ceiling and wall to wall, vary the shelf height but be sure to make it as deep as the biggest thing you think you'll build. I'm just about to that point myself LOLI first got into modeling in the mid to late 90's, all Star Wars stuff. It all went... somewhere... when I joined the Air Force in '98. I just got back into modeling in 2017, when I got into the Metal Earth model kits. First one I got was an AT-ST, but set it aside about half way through and forgot about it. I picked up the hobby again last year, and actually finished a few. I have (and I'll need to check the scale on them) an X-wing and a Y-wing that came together in a set, an F-4 Phantom (still on the hunt for an affordable C-5B, on which I spent most of my career working), metal earth Slave I, metal earth K-2S0, and a DaVinci clock. I have four more Metal models to assemble, the USS Arizona, the Black Pearl, a B-1B Lancer, and Landos Millennium Falcon.
I did find my almost finished AT-ST, but alas, pieces were missing, so I made it a "Battle of Endor" casualty, fallen over, legs crippled, pieces scattered around. This one I plan to paint and add vines and moss and other overgrowth. I'll have to get a new AT-ST model.
I'm running out of room to display all my stuff.
