Lamentation by joewight Lamentation by joewight
Pencil, ballpoint, Photoshop3

Took a break from work, alphabet, et al to do this ode to Star Wars and the dead art of kitbuilding. There are no US manufacturers of model kits anymore, but this is one I wish existed...

If only...  Modelling and kit building isn't dead though.  Check out what the customizing community does with modern era toys.  Some of the conversion of hasbro's toys that people have done are simply fantastic.  Not to mention folks who can take a sheet of plastic styrene and build anything they want out of it!  

Also, with the advances in 3d printing people have begun printing their own kits through sources like shapeways....  if you really want to build models there are still plenty of options, you just have to be more crafty!

Great art-skills mate. Hey, since you're interested in scifi model kits: Ever heard of these guys? >> [link]

Cheers!

Ah, so true! If only Monogram had gotten the contract rather than MPC! (Their Darth Vader TIE Fighter was okay, though).

Huge fan of your work, BTW. Currently working on a F-14 with invasion stripes a la Twilight X.

MPC did some ok kits, but Monogram would have tried a little harder to be accurate, I think.

Send me a note when you finish that Tomcat! I have several kits ready for a Twilight X treatment, including a gihugic 1/32 scale two-seat A-10 from Trumpeter to build the ultimate Seahog!

I know what you mean! I wish they had a two-seat A-10 out in 1/72--that Trumpeter was just too huge!
