Holy crap these are incredible!

God damn this guy's work is amazing!  Click on the link at the bottom and you can see the history behind each photo on the work that went into creating each diorama.  I still don't know how he makes his explosions look so good.

Amazing work!


He might be using LEDs inside the explosion wadding. StarFury posted a link a while back of the same technique used in a diorama of an Imperial Star Destroyer exploding:

He's using a light-bulb that he places inside a cage made of chicken-wire.  He shades it with red, orange, and yellow cellophane and then covers the cage with cotton which he paints.  I tried something similar to make flame and smoke clouds for Wings of Glory but mine look like black and orange turds.  His look fantastic.

Phenomenal work. His website is excellent.

He does a remarkable amount of research for each project. It's worth going through the site for that alone. His modelling skill is awe inspiring.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

What incredible attention to detail. O0
