Welcome

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 .

What's New

Orbital Science's Minotaur VOrbital Science's Minotaur V

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.

Got some work doneGot some work done

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!

Updated Jan 17, 2014

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.

Lockheed Martin F-22Lockheed Martin F-22

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.

Supermarine Seagull VSupermarine Seagull V

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.

Orbital Science's Taurus 2110Orbital Science's Taurus 2110

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.

Northrop Grumman RQ-4B Global HawkNorthrop Grumman RQ-4B Global Hawk

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.

I took my girls out and got them a couple models. Alyssa wanted to make a care, so she chose a police cruiser.

And when we went to the model store, Katie wanted another airplane. She settled on an F-117 with some pretty cool sticker!

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
  • Enterprise-A
