Welcome to Erick's Models. This is my place to show the models I've built and explain how I built them. I may not be the world's best modeler, but I have a good amount of experience. I've split my site into three sections. The first section is the Gallery. I have many of the models that I have built and previews of what I am going to build. The second section is for my Paper Models. I've built some, designed some, and even have a few tutorials on how to make paper models from certain computer games. And last is a small section where you'll find my Tips and Advice. I don't have a lot of advice that you can't find elsewhere, but I have a few good tings to look at. There are also a few other things scattered around, so feel free to look around.
So, browse around and have fun. I try to update the site whenever I get more to put on here. Of course, this is just a hobby, so work and life can prevent me from doing a lot to my site. But I try to update it every once in a while, so check back from time to time. And finally, if you have any questions or comments feel free to .

So, after seeing the Space Shuttle, I didn't do much modeling. Just hanging out and what not. I did start playing softball though. It's fun. Much more fun than when I was a kid. I've also been busy taking care of the family, which will be getting bigger by one around the end of the year. Anyone who sees my wife's Facebook page knows that we are adopting a little boy from Korea. We're getting so close now! The wait has been long, but we've made it this far, so the next few months shouldn't be too bad. I'm really excited to have our family grow again, and I can't wait to bring him home. Yay!
On another, less exciting note, I managed to finish another paper model for everyone to download. Its not anything crazy different, but it's a new model nonetheless. So take a look at my Taurus 2110 model and download a copy. With any luck, I'll be getting a Minotaur V done soon, since they are launching one in September. It shouldn't be difficult since it's just a modification of the Minotaur IV that I have. So check back in a month or so, and it should here.
What I'm Working On
So, for those of you who are new here, I originally wanted to focus on certain types of models. Now it's just "build models." Unfortunately, it's really more like "play video games" most of the time. I do manage to extract myself from the video game trap from time to time and work on a couple models every now and then, however. I also slowly work on cranking out a paper model or two for download. Honestly, it just depends on what I feel like doing at the time. Sometimes, I think I have too many interests.
Here's the ever changing list. No promises that I won't get side tracked yet again.
