    I've emailed Martin back and forth. He is a great guy and willing to share info. I love his work on Flash Gordon.

    A true master. All of my childhood memories of my favorite shows from the 60's and 70's have his trademark on them, and is in part, the reason why I still make models to this day.

    Fantastic video, thanks for posting. :thumbsup

    Very cool. Now that I think about it, I don't think I've ever seen an episode of Space 1999. I remember it, but it must have been on CBS or NBC. I only had ABC growing up. I missed so much!

    I'm embarrassed to Admit I've never seen Space 1999 but his work looks amazing, makes me want to watch the series. He has a really beautiful building style.

    Thanks for the link!

    Watched both the Martin Bower piece and Dragon's Domain on the 'big screen' last night.

    Gotta love Helena's electric typewriter, very 1999.
