iModeler Sci-fi

Science fiction, fantasy and mecha model building.

Project Orion nuclear spacecraft

This project started with the Revell 1:144 Saturn 5 rocket kit, however I wanted to do something a bit different with it. Project Orion was a spacecraft concept that the USA seriously considered in the late 1950s and early 60’s. The space race[...]

Crashed imperial star destroyer

Hello all. This diorama shows a crashed imperial star destroyer. I’ve tried to show a story with this diorama. The ship has taken heavy damage to its bridge causing it to crash land on a fairly hospitable planet. The diorama is shown a number o[...]

Darth Vader to spoil the day: Incom T-65B X-Wing

To write something new about the Incom T-65 X-Wing would probably mean carrying Dactillions to Galactic City, because one thing can be said for sure: the X-Wing has not only proven to be one of the most successful space fighter concepts ever con[...]

Fuel/Maintenance Anti-Gravity Barge

The thought process behind this build was simple. This is what the subject title entails. An old soon-to-be retired anti-gravity fuel/maintenance anti-gravity barge that service large spaceships that enters within an atmosphere.

UH100 Black Hawk – Upgrade Design

First of all, I must say that the Italeri, UH-60/MH-60 BLACK HAWK 'night raid' 1/48 scale kit, sucked big time. Maybe it was my bad luck but the fittings has one of the worst fittings I have ever experienced. Not only that, but the instructions [...]

Mandalorian AT-ST

When I saw Mandalorian, I couldn't resist making a version of a AT-ST. Bandai 1/48

Space 1999 1/24 Moon Buggy

Another relatively quick build. This one from last year. This is the MPC 1/24 Moon Buggy which is an extra from the 1/48 Space 1999 Nuclear Waste Diorama which I might build later when I get another display cabinet. Any way, this one comes in[...]

Star Blazers Yamato

I have always been a huge fan of the Yamato from the anime series Star Blazers, so, I treated myself to the 1/500th Scale Yamato from Bandai. This is an exquisite kit with perfect fits and an amazing model-shelf presence once completed. It is [...]

Sci-fi Airship

This was based on a sketch by artist Rob Turpin. It was my first attempt at scratch building. It’s a weird design, but I really liked it right away. It reminded me of science fiction paperback covers from the 70s and 80’s and the magazine Heavy[...]

Luftwaffe flying saucer

A small diorama for all the conspiracy theorists out there. This is the Revell 1/72 Haunebu flying saucer dissolving a Russian tank with its ‘death beam’. In all fairness the kit does not actually come with such a weapon (instead it has 3 turr[...]
