Erin Lantz's Raider entry in the Starfighter Contest

Starship Modeler Starfighter Contest Entry

RAIDER Fighter

By Erin Lantz

Erin scratchbuilt this Raider fighter from Babylon 5 in about 1/72 scale. He used plans obtained at a Trek convention to get the right shape, then built the model from styrene and balsa. The guns are resin casts of an airbrush nozzle.

Painting was a challange. First he painted random areas flat black. He then masked off these "panels" and painted a camoflauge scheme, masking more panels between colors. The model took a second prize at Wonderfest '98.
