Buck Rogers Starfighters

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Running out of steam with Star Trek designs and art so I have gone back to a design I made in 2008 just over 10 years ago, Buck Rogers Starfighter.. Gil Gerard’s series which I still enjoy watching from time to time.
Its fun working with these again. but looking at them there are areas I would do differently and a lot of areas which I would called unfinished now.
Shock surprise, no, not really but I have cleaned it up and might do some more.

 

Buck Rogers Starfighters

Made some minor changes to the model, there were a few problems with the mesh that where there back when I first built it, I don’t have time to start building from scratch so I cleaned it up as best I can..

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century: Thunder-fighter made from Popsicle sticks!

I was very much surprised to find someone building a model of the Buck Rogers Starfighter,Out of all things! “Popsicle sticks”, and wow they look cool. the reason I am posting is because he based some of his work on my CGI model renders. (OK I know its Thunder fighter in the heading, but I think that name does not fit the design, the term was coined by the model-makers from Universal Hartland as mentioned by Kenneth A. Larson) so who am I too argue.

I am grateful for his mention of me and my work in his post, which is gratifying for a number of reasons. You can find his this and other models created from wood and Popsicle ‘ s (I am still astounded by it) on this website.

An old image I have reworked to get back into the artistic side of Lightwave 3d.. A Buck Rogers escort to a binary Star System. Using photo-shop I have created what I hope is an interesting image. I will leave you to create a story to it..
