I was pretty into Star Wars. Some claim to be, and they'll say how they know all the ships, like, "that's an X-Wing". I would be the one to specify with a bit more detail, say, "it's a T-65 X-Wing starfighter, as manufactured by the Incom Corporation and distributed the Rebel alliance During the Galactic Civil War."

Blogger's post editor can't handle 3888 x 2592! Everything's slowwwiingg doowwnnn.
Anyway looking into a builder's work and seeing all the solutions they have come up with is really fascinating, even more so than the finished model. It is clear the Psiaki has taken every step to replicate both the form and feel of such a classic design. It is also evident that he has taken more care to produce these images than I did with instructions for my M4 Sherman tank.

Nick Dean has started work on the Pan Am Space Clipper as seen briefly in 2001 ASO. Here is some concept artwork by Peter Elson:

Nick finished building a different clipper from a different era last month, here is his Boeing 314:
