These little fellas are 1/6th scale, made from resin kits from Model Prisoners in the US. I modified them to have articulated legs and working headlights.

 

I think if you click on the photo you should be able to see the other pictures in the same album.

Ah, Huey, Dewey and Louie!  I love that film.  I saw it as the B movie with - I can't remember what.  Silent Running I remember, though.

Silent running is one of my favorite Sci-Fi movies. Great work on the drones.

You know, I saw this film when I was young and was very unimpressed. Maybe I need to revisit it now that I'm older. Everybody here seems to like it. I'm gonna track it down for a weekend viewing.

Some years ago I found a download for paper versions of these guys.

I just did a search and found this site which I think is the one I used.

I put balsa inside them to make them more solid & used UHU glue.

Edit: I read somewhere that they can be printed onto photographic paper which would be better.

Thanks for the comments guys.

 

John_W  I've got an idea for a base, but haven't got around to it yet - too many competing projects on the go.

 

Pete in Lincs  It was seeing some paper models like those (there's usually a variety on ebay) that made me look to see what else I could find, and led to the ones I bought - for a vast amount more than the paper ones.

 

Hans  If I ever get round to articulating the manipulator arms you can be sure they'll be playing poker.

Excellent work. Very evocative.

A great film which was made more poignant by the choice of music.

I look forward to seeing the 1/6th scale bio-dome and these guys doing some gardening!

 

Your next mission, should you choose to accept it, is the existentially challenged 'Bomb' from Darkstar.

 

Rearguards,
