1:20th scale F-1 engine
This is a very LARGE resin Custom Replicas 1:20th scale F-1 engine that I painted about a year ago. This is a bit unusual for me in that it is literally ALL metallic, my client wanted a very realistic & weathered appearance, so this a bit of a challenge but quite rewarding in the end.
I started with a base coat of Touch ‘n’ Tone flat black primer (great stuff!) then mixed up various home brews of Model Master Metalizer lacquers applied with an airbrush. This was sealed with Metalizer sealer, I then airbrushed various shades of Vallejo “sepia inks” and re-sealed with aforementioned metalizer sealer. I also applied some Flory Models weathering wash and again sealed.

2 Ft. Jupiter 2 Lost in Space
Here’s the old 2 foot Jupiter 2 from Lost in Space. The model was quite a bit of work, mostly because of inaccuracies with the vac u-formed hull. I added lighting, including the rotating fusion core. The figures of Don West & John Robinson are actually converted “Willy’s Jeep” drivers from Verlinden. The hull is painted in Tamiya Flat Aluminum.

Diving Bell Prop Diorama from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea
Here’s an original screen used “crushed diving bell – prop” from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea. A good friend of mine who collects movie & T.V. props wanted his prop in a vignette depicting the particular episode it appeared in. The episode here is “Night of Terror” in which a dinosaur steps on the bell and Admiral Nelson is seen trying to communicate with someone. I added lights inside the bell that depict an electrical short out. The figure of Richard Baseheat is a reworked Tamiya item with a resin head. The vegetation in the scene is mostly “aquarium plants” from the pet store airbrushed and painted for realism. The “Nelson Institute” hatch is a scratch built item to add a more complete scene. A nice final touch is the autographed name plate obtained from the 50th anniversary Voyage tribute a few years back.
Polidor attack Submarine from Voyage to the Bottom of Sea
Another screen used miniature from my friend / client who a big collector of Sci Fi T.V. movie props. This is the Polidor from Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea as seen during the enemy attack sequence in the 1961 feature. This footage was also re-used in the pilot of the television series “Eleven Days to Zero”
The display base was created out of thick wood and a sculplting material called Sculptamold . The large rock formations were started with floral foam, sculpted, and then covered with Sculptamold. The Polidor (or Skipjack) as it actually started life as, needed some restoration work such as cracks repaired, paint touch-up, and a propellor added that had previously gone missing.

Samurai Archer, Late Heian Period 90mm
Another beautiful casting from Pegaso in Italy. To say this figure was ton of work would be quite an understatement! I don’t think there’s one square milometer of this piece that doesn’t have some kind of detail scrollwork. I painted it in acrylics, a lot of work…but worth it in the end.
Mounted Samurai Archer 14th Century
Another 90mm mounted Samurai, this time an archer. The casting is from Andrea Miniatures in Spain. Again, these pieces are lot’s and lot’s of work but quite rewarding in the end.

Genghis Kahn 90mm mounted
Painted this figure a few years back, it’s a Pegaso 90 mm Genghis Kahn all painted in acrylics. The detail on the horse’s saddle took almost as long as the figure, a ton of work, but worth it!
