|The SS Oriana that plied the Pacific Ocean in the 1960s, done as a paper model in 1/700th scale.|
|The Surveyor's House from On The Shores of Silver Lake by Laura Ingalls Wilder, done as a paper model with interior in 1/48th scale.|
|Pa Ingall's store from The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder, done as a paper model with interior in 1/48th scale.
This was my own creation based on photos and stepping out the interior.
|The Lightcycle from the original Tron movie. I enlarged the pattern to fit an 11"x17" sheet.
The pattern is found here.
|The original starship Enterprise. Made from paper products around the home - picnic plates, toilet roll cores, crumpled Kleenex, ping-pong balls,
toothpicks, candy foil, and sheets of white paper. You should see what I did with the Fireball XL-5 for my daughter!
|The F-15A Eagle USAF air superiority fighter, done as a paper model in 1/72th scale.
The aircraft depicted is the prototype as painted by Keith Ferris in 1972 before its first flight, although the model itself is a later variant.
|The Boeing B-314 Clipper transoceanic flying boat, an Airfix kit in 1/144th scale.
I made this in high school and experimented with pinhole photography. The aluminum foil water I thought worked nicely.
|The P-51D Mustang WWII air superiority fighter, done in plastic in 1/48th scale.
The aircraft depicted flew out of China and the Pacific. Click here for more details.
|The Lockheed L-1049G Constellation(nickname "Super-G") mid-50s airliner, done in plastic in 1/128th scale.
The model is built to "out-of-the-box" contest standard. Click here for construction details.
|The Douglas DC-4 airliner in the livery of Pan American Airways, circa 1948, done as a plastic model in 1/122th scale.
This was created as a present to my father-in-law, who flew on one to Hawaii in 1948.
|USS McCook DD-496 as she appeared along the beaches on D-Day. The destroyers were the unsung artillery that day suppressing pillboxes
and anything else that pinned down the troops. A good friend's father was the officer directing the guns on board her that day. This one's for him!
|1973 Corvette 4-Rotor. My goal was to build this 1/18th scale kit relatively quickly. I corrected the nose and interior,
completing it plus adding a rear bulkhead. I then tried a special tri-coat-like paint job on it to match the original. Not perfect, but a good result.
|The only battle between fleets of battleships. It occured May 31-June 1, 1916 in the North Sea off of Jutland.
A technical draw, the British still controlled the seas and were never challenged again by the Germans. Images created in Bryce4.
