Final thoughts

This now the third model of the space jockey i have scratch built. I was well pleased with all of them but of course this is the biggest and last. I’m not even a sci – fi fan but to be honest when i bought a book many years ago about the making of the film i was quite hooked on the idea of making one stuck with me. A friend of my son came round to see it and was very enthusiastic about it and that was pleasing, he then asked me if i would ever do another one and the answer was a certainly not. The time and cost of this would be too much to repeat and i dont think it would ever be as rewarding as this. Another thing was that towards the finish there was the problem of weight and size and honestly it was good to see the it done….well almost.jockey55
