    It's all over facebook now. Someone has made a public imgur album full of never-ever before seen slide scans of pictures from Blade Runner Model shop. 90% of this material has over 150 images never been seen before. This is even bigger than the pics posted in Doug Trumbull's, as you have many closeups of each specific models: Hero Spinner, 12" Spinner, the Alfa Romeo Spinner, the Lobster Spinner, the Truck, Tyrell's pyramid, Tyrell's pyramid landing pad, the Blimp... all cristal clear.

    Enjoy

    The Aries 1B, now this? What a time to be alive ... and addicted to sniffing model glue.

    Yeah, I'm hoping these things come in threes and some other dam is about to bust open too!
    Could the lost 3ft Enterprise be discovered soon? Starting to believe in miracles.

    The Spinner garage would make for a great display model all on it's own.

    Somehow I can just picture Ridley walking in and breaking those F1 engines off of the blimp.

    Now THAT was mind blowing! Thanks for the link.
    That special issue of Cinefex on Blade Runner was pretty astounding. These pics are a great addition. Wow.

    This is exactly why I love this hobby. Things like this are being discovered 30-40 years later. So cool.

    What happened to these models? Are they now in private hands, museums, landfill?

    Man, I just can't imagine how cool it must have been to have had a job actually doing that kind of stuff back then. Just pure miniature model making--and getting paid for it. Not doing hobby stuff like most of us do here--an actual job like that..no cgi, just building everything....Totally awesome!!

    But then Ridley Scott would come in, snap off half the antennas, and tell you to paint it grey again.
