I have the great pleasure once again of introducing another fantastic talent to this Gallery! Artist Don Malpass of MALPASS MODELS. During Don’s modeling profession, he has mainly built replicas for the actors that we all know and love. His work speaks for itself and I am honored to be able to show some of them here.

Below are several builds and photos of the Celebrities Don builds for…
Here is the Cardiassian Warship. I included a pic of some of the electronics. This is the first ship I built for the Ertl Company when they started getting me to do some of there buildups for the box art and to show at Toy Fair.
Here is the 1701. I have built this one for Bill Shatner personally and for him to use as a auction item for his charity The Hollywood Charity Horse Show, http://www.horseshow.org/. I have met Bill on several occasions. Bill is a very kind and generous person.
Here is the Runabout from Deep Space Nine. I built this one for Rene Auberjonois who played Odo. He is not only a wonderful and entertaining actor but he is also someone I am proud to call a friend. The Runabout was built as the USS Rio Grande NCC-72452.
One of the 1701 ship builds is also in the James Doohan Museum in Scottland along with the Bird of Prey I was asked to build for and present to him by his son Chris Doohan several years ago. It was presented to him at The James Doohan farewell Convention in LA.
