This Old FX Shop: Interstellar Model Kit

We pay homage to Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar by building model kits based on the practical miniatures used in the film’s production. Frank and Norm each make a Ranger spaceship, showing painting, masking, and weathering for this scale model.

  1. Agreed! Wouldn’t it also be great to build a nice model of the heavy work loader that ripley used against the queen?

  2. really liked this. i used to build a ton of this type of model as a kid, but i never knew any of these techniques. it is really cool to see the professional approach. (also doesn’t hurt that I am an Interstellar fanatic)

  3. Spaceship models are my thing,so glad to see you working on one. So yes, more ships. I’d love to see The Roci from The Expanse, with and without the disguise. Your motivating me to work on my model blog again. Can’t wait to see more. Great job guys.

    A Roci model would be awesome. Technically 3 different versions though – Martian colors, Gas Hauler Disguise, and Disguised without the gas tanks.

    Side note I briefly considered painting a car in Martian Roci colors.

  5. Another reason not to cut everything out, you can actually hold onto the trees while you’re painting.

  6. Just went to look this model up on ebay because I couldn’t find it on Moebius’ site. Turns out it is sold on other sites still.

    While on ebay I saw a light kit for this model and it looked amazing. I always wanted to do a DS9 model with a light kit…maybe someday.

  7. AAH why don’t premium member video’s go to normal after a while ?!? I really want to see it but I don’t see why I should pay an entire subscription to see one video from 2 years ago.
