Here are two models I made after I got done with the ones I did for the museum.

The plane is the same type and scale as the C-47 I made for the museum, 

It is a RD4-SL Polar Explorer. It was the first aircraft to land on the South Pole on October 31st 1956.

The helicopter is the Bell UH-1 Huey. It was used mainly during the Viet Nam war.









Here are some pictures of my models at the musuem

Was asked to build model of the glider that was used in WW2 for the local museum. 
They trained pilots here in Aberdeen, SD. 
I built the glider and the tow plane.

The Robot from Lost in Space TV Show

This is a model of the Robot from Lost in Space.

I was running out of ink so I printed it in black ink only.

When I was growing up we only had a Black and White TV so I made all the pictures in B/W




Here is a short video I made for fun.

I also made a old school video of me making the model from start to finish.  
It took 3 hours 55 minutes to make so I sped up the video so it only runs 16 minutes.

The video is rough looking I made it using a webcam and feed it to a VHS recorder.
Then I recorded it with my digital camera. The lighting is harsh but I am working on other ways to do it. It was just a test for me but I think it looks OK.
