TTA Spacewreck

[Proudly Sponsored by BLAP! Models]

by Bill Perry

Scale: 1/48

Media: cardstock and model rail road grass

This diorama is based on the painting by Fred Gambino from the book "Spacewreck" by Stewart Cowley.

The vignette depicts a forgotten fighter and pilot on a grassy hillside on some alien planet. The original model was designed by Bunnyears, but was a forced perspective model and had to be heavily modified to make it look right from all angles. It is made completely out of paper with the exception of the railroad grass. The scale is roughly 1/48. No paint was used on the model, all custom parts were colored with markers and the designer used the original painting for textures.

This was a fun little project reliving a great book in 3D.
