Spacecraft and vehicles

One of many "Thunderbirds" style vehicles done for "Agent Crush", a kids film, also made lots of miniature sets of buildings and street furniture, satellites, missiles and a car crushing plant.

The science fiction Move "Sunshine" a small team of us made the model space station and also some full sized dressing props for the sets.

Possibly some of the best fun I've had (whilst still dressed) and some of the worst stress too was the Channel 4 UFO hoax documentary, "A very Bristish UFO hoax" Robbie Scott, Rob Jones and I, along with a couple of others, built a 25feet diameter flying saucer and flew it over the Wiltshire countryside at Avebury.

Hey Nige, thanks for posting the photos of your movie stuff - its usually your bird pics that i'm looking at. I've seen the C4 UFO hoax programme a couple of times and thought it was very good.
