When I sat down to start making my own ship models for Lucidity I found it a little harder then I expected to get a 101 primer.

There’s a lot of info on specific parts of it, but nothing to get you started with the basic terms and techniques.

That’s when I ordered Introduction to Professional Model Making with Ron Davis


Ron gave me exactly what I was looking for in an introduction, helping me align my existing skills with what I’ll need for this and showing me where I’m weak or don’t have the tools.

If you’re thinking of doing any kind of prop or model making I recommend picking this up. As a bonus Ron is a nice guy, and his twitter is worth following.

He mentioned that they were working on another volume and I’ll probably pick that up when it comes out as well.

There’s a lot of work to do in a project like this, but this is a great place to start.
