Sci-Fi in its "natural" setting . . .

A lot of our models can be displayed as they are in real life - my diorama of the River Monitor is a prime example - the model is set "in water" to depict it's normal usage . . .

Problems arise with Sci-fi, especially space craft as it's very near impossible to display them in "normal" situations. Obviously, you can show them "landed" but ideally you want to show them in space.

With this in mind, I got a few photo's of models made by John Jenkins and got to work in photoshop . . . I think they work quite well . . . just wish we could display them like this at the shows. Hope you like them.
