More space model photography at

Some of the best models I've ever seen made. Stunning, absolutely stunning!

Thanks for sharing your work!

Yet, again, many thanks for all your kind comments.

Just glad you like the photography.

have you modified the solar arrays for the "rip"

At one point I did. Over the years the arrays have been redone several times in attempts to improve them. And I noticed that the rip is not obvious in most photos of the real thing and my attempt was way too obvious as even using the finest of threads could not replicate the fine "fix". So my latest version of the array does not have the rip repair.

Has your work ever been in a TV program or movie?

With the exception of my 1/72 Mir which featured on the UK Channel 5 news programme in 1997, no is the answer. Most of my models would not stand up to the rigour of TV or film work. In fact this ISS model is too fragile to even take it to shows. Every time I touch it something breaks off as it is almost impossible to handle with all the tiny detail.

These are awesome.  STS-133 (9l).jpg, which shows the approaching Russian vehicle over the limb of the Earth, is particularly fine!  The lighting of the models is truly incredible.  Thanks for sharing!

Bump due to epicness and as much as these are better angles than what the event actually will result in, they are still great.

I'll be interested to see how close they match up. 7g and 12 are slight possibilities albeit without the HTV (and different orbiter of course).

I'll be happy with whatever we get!

I know EVERYONE is saying it, but these are fantastic!

I love the attention to detail, the SRMS under the shuttle as planned etc. etc. etc. etc.....

I can only hope that we're as lucky with the STS 134 "flyaround" (or whatever the correct term is now) pictures with regard to angles and lighting.

Thanks again.

I like Keith's work's better, it's kind of having a "closer view" ...

of cos I would not underminded the effort of all those people who make the fly about work and the three who took the real pictures ....
