Aleksander Stein

I honestly think that Aleksander Stein is the best military modeler, ever. The fact that his models are both detailed, functional, and that many of them have realistic camouflage color schemes, a difficult objective that a lot of military builders shy away from, places him at the top. They're system figure scale too, making them ripe for dioramas and displays.


Better than the average fan art

Quite amazing artwork inspired by the original starwars trilogy, by British poster artist Olly Moss:

I'm particularly in love with the Boba Fett/Bespin one, the integration of the city as the visor is nothing short of brilliant.

who also has *exquisite* taste in video-gaming.



Yummy space buggies from Cole Blaq and Tyler Clites, both incorporating the same windshield piece:

Planetary Explorer

Both models are excellent examples of detailing. Tyler's does a great job capturing the utilitarian look with the sand red(!) color scheme and soft-core greebling by way of exposed studs and prefab parts, and I adore the rear suspension on Cole's.

I've also been impressed by Lord Dane's recent hardsuit thing, especially the armament.


Can I call it, "Float Punk"?

Inspired ski-fi artwork by Ian McQue. Via Conceptships. Also, he paints. I haven't been this captivated by someone's aesthetics and technique since I discovered Ashley Wood. Then again I don't look at enough art.



Andreas H. (MOCPage, Flickr) throws down quite an awesome dio on a par normally reserved for adult fans, i.e. the likes of Goldman and Ried.

Fulla towers and bunkers and shtuff, as well as this nifty VTOL:

The asymmetric dual cockpit is saucy.

Occasional driving force of the blog, self-proclaimed Lukas fanboy, and aspiring engineer, Jacob spends too much time building LEGO, not enough time practicing piano, and not nearly enough time doing school. He also enjoys long sentences. In the instance of blogging, he believes in quantity over quality, wherever quantity can be maintained.
One of the cofounders of YSAB, and the founder of YSA, Observing Mike actually being productive is a rare occasion. Mike enjoys making outlandish claims in relation to actually building, pretending he's actually sorting his collection, and making excuses for why he hasn't photographed his MOCs. In his free time he enjoys learning CSS from Spook, photography and poking badgers with spoons.
Occasional builder, occasional blogger, and full-time procrastinator. That's really the only way to describe Dean. He rarely gets anything done, but is a very active lurker. He's probably seen and liked your MOC, but just forgot he had a blog.
Erik is still a teenager.
Lukas is tall, blond, mildly OCD, and doesn't build nearly enough as he would like to, thanks to school. He has a webpage.
Spook (Tim)
The resident codemonkey and graphics person. If something isn't working correctly, it's probably his fault. Fitting to his name, he doesn't post often, but someone has to do this stuff too, right? Spook does build with laygoes, and has his own blog as well.
