I finished editing another set of photos, this time for the Rolling Stone.

More pictures of the Rolling Stone can be seen here: http://picasaweb.google.com/116637781725296267499/RollingStones#. The ones with the black background are new.

I have redone the Phobos Rendezvous image using actual photos of Mars and Phobos from NASA.

Thanks. The Heinlein models are my personal obsession so I can't really take credit for the effort expended; it's just something I am going to do and it's fun for me. But it is an extra pleasure to share them with an audience that values Heinlein as much as I do and to hear that they are appreciated.

I loved several of the Heinlein models (such as Citizen of the Galaxy -- Sisu), but also some of the others. You did a nice job on the HMS Macarthur for Niven & Pournelle's "Mote in God's Eye", for example. I should point my husband (a medieval, military and railroading model builder) to your site....

Catherine,

I'm glad you enjoyed the models. The MacArthur isn't finished yet. Those are in-process shots. I do need to get back to it. I also have a couple more Heinlein models in the works. I'm making drawings for the Jitterbug 3 from Farmer in the Sky right now.

I'd be glad to hear what your husband thinks of my models. If he wants to talk about models, PM me and I'll send you my email address.

Dan

I'm glad you liked them. If you don't mind straying away from Heinlein, I workded this weekend on recreating the game box illustrations that feature the StarForce ringship and think they turned out well.

I have finished two more models based on the works of Heinlein; the amphibious space shuttle from Between Planets and a diorama based on Roughnecks: Starship Trooper Chronicles. I have also made a new webpage that should make it easier to view my Heinlein model collection. The webpage is at http://ourworlds.topcities.com/models/heinlein_models.html
