Building Scifi Science Fiction spaceship models and technical gear is a hobby all it's own.

From Star Wars and Star Trek, to Mechs, to Steampunk, to Cyber models. There's a genre for every kind of builder. You're only limited by your imagination.

These books and publications can help you build fantastic imaginary spaceships, or detail out your favorite movie and TV ships from the small screen and big screeen.

Movie stills, blueprints, special effects (FX), all these different specialties of the Scifi model hobby can be explored and built on. With new skills, new ideas, and new talents from these books pages.

Now you can build space machines and ships much like your favorite FX builders, such as Mat Irvine, Douglas Trumball, Phil Tippet, John Dykstra, and many others.


Books and publications to help you build great Scifi and Space models.
