BILL EARLY'S DIORAMAS (UPDATES)
Here's an update on some projects. Here's a shot of my completed laser tank form Space 1999 and
a scratch built moon buggy. The tank got a certificate of merit at this year's Wonderfest, and
also the trophy for best Gerry Anderson inspired model. I'm real proud of that.
Next is a picture of a scratch built glider and escape pod from Space 1999. These were built to
scale with the Replica's Unlimited 23 inch Eagle. Now we have a scratch built Voyage to the Bottom
of the Sea diving bell and mini sub. These are to scale with the Monogram Flying sub. The bell is
made out of a ping pong ball and the mini sub from a piece of plastic tubing.
Here's a picture of my workshop. Notice several Jupiter-2's sitting around waiting for attention. The
larger one is a 4 foot fiberglass casting, just like the original filming miniature. The smaller ones
are Sci-fi Metropolis 2 foot hulls. Next are a few shots of the 2 foot Jupiter-2's built up.
And last we have a few shots of the prototype Sci-fi Metropolis 1/6 th scale LIS Space Pod. Please
pardon the red primer, it kind of jumps out at you. Also, some close ups showing some of the details.
When I get the final paint on it, I'll send some more pictures.
