This is a rather selfish request. Would you all please go to the Share your dream section (click link) on the Revell website and then click on “Support idea”? I’ve always wanted to have a model kit of the fast space cruiser Orion 7. Thank you.

Those Raumpatrouille Illustrations

Almost exactly 7 years ago I was asked to design and illustrate covers for a new Raumschiff Orion book series. After lots of work and time put into the project, it then just died without any explanation given.

Karlos recently asked me whether I’ve still got them, so here they are in all their glory, plus two of the test renders I did at the time.
