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 .

Wow, what a month. No model building, but I got the opportunity of a lifetime. I got to see the Space Shuttle Endeavor stop at Edwards AFB for the last time and watch it fly over. I took my camera and got on my tower and snapped away. Then I went to the NASA ramp and took even more! It was great! I thought everyone here would appreciate them, so I made a page and figured I'd post it online. Feel free to look and enjoy.
No news on model builds, but I did make build a Homeworld model. It was just a model to keep me in the mood, so no pictures of it. The weather is cooling off finally, so I hope to get back in the garage to get back to work. The average temperature in Lancaster during September is still pretty warm, but the will drop off in October. So that means I'll be working on models again. Yay!
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.
