Welcome to Erick's Models, my place to show off my models and give back to the modeling community that helped improve my skills. Browse around and see what I have to offer. 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 here. I usually get at least a few updates a year though, often more. And finally, if you have any questions or comments feel free to .

Update Feb 2, 2014
I finished my Mintoaur V model, and it is now available for download. I had actually completed most of the work back in October, but I hadn't finished it until just recently. It would have been nice to release it when LADEE had launched, but oh well.
I've gotten some work done on my C-141 as well. The engine pylons were too short in the back making the engines point down, so I fixed that. There are some more pics of my Condar. It's getting close!Read more...

Ok, so during the winter break, I managed to get a couple models done! Yay! I've had these 'on the bench' for a couple years now. I've been meaning to get these done for a while now, because they are Christmas gifts from my daughters.
The first one was an F-22, which I needed because my old one is starting to fall apart. I also use a new display technique which turned out pretty well.
I was also able to get another one done at the same time. I got the Seagull as a gift at the same time I got the F-22, so I figured I should finish them together. This one was more challenging, but I was able to pull it off.

I was able to finish my Taurus 2110 model with a little help from some better pictures and a little time with PaintShop Pro. This rounds out the Taurus model line, as far as I can tell.

I got to see the Space Shuttle on it's last trip through Edwards AFB. It was nothing short of amazing. Take a look at some of the pictures I took while it came through.

I finished the RQ-4B Global Hawk. This is the plane that I was flying at the time I built it, and I like having models of the planes I've flown. Always nice to be able to show people what I fly when they ask about it.Read more...
I took my girls out and got them a couple models. Alyssa wanted to make a care, so she chose a police cruiser.Read more...
What I'm Working On
Here are the models that I currently have "on my work bench," as the saying goes. It's not a long list becasue I'm trying to keep it to just a few models at a time to keep from having a dozen half built models laying around. So far it's working.
- Lockheed C-141B Starlifter
- Robotech Defender's Condar
