Exclamation DeSanto's Final Raider Design 1/24th Scale

Here is the first blueprint of the Raider's body. We have already made it from high density foam, and have skinned it with a sort of plaster. At this point today, we are covering that with a few layers of polyurethane resin. And then detail.

This project has been on hold for the better part of 2 1/2 weeks because Tom has been so busy working on his other projects that it took time to get back with me with the corrected images to do it 100% right.
Now it on the right track. BUT.....I'll say it now, that the cockpit and pilots are a completely separate piece of art, all by itself, and will only be offered as a separate unit. It is a model that will be worthy of detailing, lighting and displaying on its own. That's just how it is folks. Not cause I want to pull the same ridiculous stunt that others have pulled with the studio scale raider, it is just another work of art.

I'm fascinated at the process of building this. It looks like its going to be great. I'm new here so I havn't come across your work before. I assume that this is going to be limited production kit? It would be great to have such a fun job!

Cheers,

Brian.

Thanks to all of you for sticking by, and being patient. With the death of my best friend, all things came to a halt without warning.
And I appreciate the support from all of you here, and all of the e-mails and long distance calls that I have recieved, pretty messed up for a bit was'nt I?
Tom and I are again at work on this.

I'm not sure when, but I'd like for it to.
But I've got alot of build-ups for friends and art commissions to finish up, I'm not sure. But as things progress, I'll be adding more building shots.
