Model Builds


I have this unusual hobby that involves scratch building what are known as Studio Scale models of the starships featured in my Star Saga novels. Studio Scale refers to the size that a model was built for a particular Sci-Fi movie. Usually they are big enough for lights and explosives. Most of these models are 1/32 scale or 1/350 for the larger ones.

I’ve been building models of my own design since I was a kid. Back then they were made from poster board. Now days I use plastic, wood and metal. If you’re a modeler or are just a fan of cool looking starships, please feel free to browse. Many of these models are featured on my book covers. The lines in bold below are models yet to be built.

Some of these are now featured on ArtStation.
