Really made my day today.

The Fabled The Black Hole Video

Excellent animation that catches the sprite of the scene where both space craft meet each other at the edge of “The Black Hole” it’s also great to see both my model the USS Palomino and Sean Kennedy’s USS Cygnus featured in another fan’s creative homage to a classic film, for all the original films faults, it remains a beautify filmed work and the Cygnus surely is the highlight of the film

Source of the Video


I made the video around 2011. I added the title cards and original John Barry score the I the day. I’ve had trouble with codecs and uploading it.

The video is the opening space shots of Walt Disney’s the black Hole redone by me in CG.

I give special thanks to Sean Kennedy and Gerard Duffy. Great models thanks for making them available.

Mini Buck Rogers 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.
