A few weeks ago, and one week apart, Collector’s Michael Plante and myself managed to swing by artist and collector Marc Elkins home! What an experience! Michael ended up going home owning Marc’s 6 foot Star Destroyer AVENGER, as well as the Salzo made, Elkins built MEGA SCALE AT-AT! Being that Michael was there one week before myself, we ended up taking the same angled photo with Marc… and thus I placed all three of us in the photo below! I was there to view progress on the many,… MANY projects that Marc is currently doing for the Kuhn Global/Modeler Magic Gallery collection. This isn’t bragging by any means, but only meant to tell how this artist is BUSY! I was able to pick up the fully restored 1:650 41 inch Enterprise E, 5 X-Wings, a TIE Fighter, a Death Star Turret, and even the Death Star EXHAUST Port that Luke shot the Proton Torpedo in to destroy the behemoth man made moon in Star Wars! Oh yes…. let us not forget the HUGE Mega Scale AT-AT that is now out of production! This trip was both exciting and productive as Marc, Michael and myself made plans for the now and future builds Marc will be handling. There will be some fantastic pieces that will show nicely in the physical Gallery that is DEFINITELY coming up soon!
Please excuse the excitement in my voice and breath as you view the video. I simply wanted you all to enjoy the experience as I did. I do note however that is difficult to do from video alone. Therefore here are also some photos to view!
This video I threw together quickly using the music of Jerry Goldsmith. I do apologize to Marc Elkins as I spelled his name wrong in the video title…. DOH!

Be Well My Friends!
