    You really should apply for a job with ILM! Your work is really top notch and no doubt is movie quality. Your competition (against you) in a modeling contest doesn't stand a chance! Great Job!

    Fantastic. I'm actually at a loss for words. Especially considering you only had the trailer shots of the X-wings to work with

    These are masterful builds! Everyone are studio quality! I am beyond IMPRESSED! If I did not know any better, I would not believe that they were made of paper and cardstock.
    I have to say that my favorite is the black one.
    Thank you sharing your work with us!

    I was hoping you would not be insulted with me having a little bit of fun using my primitive skills. These models are quite exquisite! :)

    Nice. How did you do the water under the craft?

    Here's a link to someone's work on the Prince of Wales ship. Longbow mounted the ship onto an ocean scene done in plaster.

    One of those many things I'd like to try sometime with plaster.

    I hope this helps you out.

    I use a large, very large, sponge from Home Depot, and pill it straight up to get the water effect, the you pain on the white caps (having decided which way the wind is blowing) after you pain the water. Varying sponge sizes give different results. I did the same technique for a Lunar Diorama of the L.E.M. on the surface of the moon. The ship is built )usually) as a waterline model, so you trace the hull, knowing where not to put the plaster, ships have a "cradle' of water they set in, which I seldom see duplicated properly, but this is just a lack of understanding of what displacing water actually is, and how a moving displacement of water causes a ship to actually drop do, a few feet if it is an Ocean Liner. :)
