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...

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!

The only "kit" you should be worried about is the "kitty- kat". *groan*
