InfoLink - Starship Troopers Model Portfolio

Here's a look behind the scenes at the model shop that produced the models for the first Starship Troopers movie. A good selection of photos, though I'd enjoy more.

InfoLink - Star Warz Model Shop

If you're interested in scratchbuilt Star Wars models and can't wait for the book mentioned below, check out Lasse Henning's site. In it, he shows how he has built his own quality miniatures of Star Wars subjects without resorting to buying off-the-shelf kits. These model techniques are the same ones used by pro modellers in Hollywood and around the world. Lasse has lots of pictures to document his project and it's a gold mine of information.

InfoLink - Sculpting a Galaxy: Inside the Star Wars Model Shop

Well, well, well! Two hundred and sixteen pages of Star Wars model goodness, lavishly illustrated with hundreds of photographs. Looks like there's a new contender for the place of honor on the coffee table!

Scupting a Galaxy: Inside the Star Wars Modelshop looks like a sure hit for fans of sci-fi and movie miniatures. Industrial Light & Magic has a great deal of history and created the visuals for the classic Star Wars films in a time before CGI and 3D modeling. They did it the old-fahioned way, hands on and detailed!

I'm looking forward to this book, to be releasd in November.
