Studio Scale DEVASTATOR by Marc Elkins for The Kuhn Global / Modeler Magic Collection

May 25,1977 was a day that changed many lives, not to mention industry standards. I remember sitting in the front row of my local theater in Los Angeles to view the stunning opening of the film….

TIE FIGHTERS ARE BLUE!!! No really… they ARE!! But not this time! Marc Elkins did a fantastic job on this piece (as is his usual)! In 1977, when Star Wars came out… everyone believed the TIE Fighter to be grey in color… because that is what the technology made them look like on screen! In […]

Studio Scale ATLANTIA Shuttle Blue Screen Photos by Kurt Kuhn (Kuhn Global), Build by Marc Elkins

This model started as the Alfred Wong patterned studio scale SMT kit. Since it was a little different in detail than the actual studio model used in the 1978 film, and the 1979 series Battlestar Galactica, myself and artist Marc Elkins decided to build this beast as the Presidential shuttle of the Battlestar Atlantia! Marc […]

1:20 Clone Wars V-19 from the Modeler Magic Collection

I love when TOY Conversions come out so fantastic as this piece did! This is a fantastic re-do of the Hasbro Toy V-19 that was designed for the action figures. Of course the actual toy is smaller than the figure that is supposed to go in it (as the toys usually are), but we managed […]

Measuring slightly less long than the 752 meter ACCLAIMATOR Star Destroyer Class, the new 686 meter PERSISTANT Class Imperial Cutter INTRACTIBLE is the second version of this new Imperial weapon.

The toy makers of today use those original CG files to make perfect […]
