I'm shutting it down!
After about 15 years of Erick's Models, I've decided to shut the site down. It has been fun and I'm sure many of you enjoyed the pictures, paper models and information I have here, but I've decided that I don't really have the time to work on the site. I don't really have time to model, actually, so I'm just going to shut it all down. Thanks everyone for their support and the kind e-mails you have sent me. I'm happy that everyone has enjoyed the site as I have. I may post my content to the blog site I started just to keep it alive, if dormant. Thanks again, and keep on modeling.
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 .

I started a blog! I've been working on model stuff, and I don't have the time to constantly update my website, so I opened a blog to make small updates faster. With any luck, I'll keep working on my models enough to make the blog intersting.

I finished a model from my childhood, the Robotech Defenders Condar. I made a few changes, that I think turned out pretty well. I might have been working on this for a while, but I finally got it done.

I made a paper model of the Taiidan Interceptor from Homeworld. I even made a nice wood stand for it too, since it is a spaceship and can't really sit on the ground.
I also got some work done on the Robotech Condar. Yes, I know it's from Dougram, but that's ok. I'm just considering it to be some mecha that need a good paint job. It's geting clost to done too.

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.
