Modeling Links

These are a few modeling links of interest I've dug up.

bulletLunar Models
http://www.lunarmodelsonline.com/
Sells a wide variety of garage kits.  Excellent source for Irwin Allen kits.  I have WAY too many of Lunar's kits.  Building their kits taught me how to build resin and styrene kits.  Their kits can be built by a novice, but you'll make mistakes.  I know, I have two Seaviews, and only one is well built!
bulletComet Miniatures
http://www.comet-miniatures.com/
Looking for import models?  Call them, but they're in England so account for the time zone differences.  I ordered my Wallace & Gromit kits from them.  Nice folks.  English accent.  Say no more!
bulletD. F Howard
http://www.dfhoward.com/

Sells Sci-Fi kits and Jupiter 2 Fusion core light kits for Polar Lights and Lunar Models.  I have the light kits in 3 of my J2 models, and they're great.  Check out their links page as well for great info!
bulletMonsters in Motion
http://www.monstersinmotion.com/
They sell a wide variety of kits and are very friendly.  Got their 18" XL5 model and it's really nice.
bulletSkyhook Models  
http://www.skyhookmodels.com

Sells Garage kits of various Sci-Fi ships and replacement seats & landing pads for the Polar Lights Jupiter 2.  Excellent kit of Futurama's Planet Express delivery ship!
bulletCultTVman's Modeling Page
http://www.CultTVman.com/
Can't say enough about his site, except I should have started up my web programming a few years earlier!  If you're looking for something, someone on his site will know where it is. 
bulletThomas Models
http://www.thomasmodels.com/
I've order product from them before and it took a while, but they seem to be getting caught up on orders.  Great source for Star Trek decals.
bulletJim James's Polar Lights Jupiter 2 Decal Set
http://www.culttvman.com/jim_james__jupiter_2_decals.html
Off CultTVman's site.  Download and print yourself, or order a set ready to go.
bulletDremel
http://www.dremel.com/html/home_fr.html
What can't be done with these great little tools?  I have the portable one and it does 90% of the work on my kits.

Modeling Stuff I'd like to try but haven't:

bulletThe Fluorescent Co./FLO-CO
http://www.flo-co.com/index.shtml
This company sells fluorescent lights in pencil & toothpick diameters.  Light up those tight spots in any kits with these!  I'm this close to buying a bunch for my Enterprise kits.
bulletFederation Models
http://www.federationmodels.com/

Distributors of Resin Starship Model Kits.  If I had the time and the money... I'd have just about every kit on this site.  Looks good and their stuff has been recommended by others.  
bulletFalcon Kits
http://www.falconkits.com/
They make new parts for the Star Wars AMT/Ertl Millennium Falcon that really make it look like the studio model.  New side panels and cockpit interior.  I've had the conversion kit for about a year now and haven't had the time to finish it, but it looks really great.
bulletBel Inc. Model Decal Paper
http://store.yahoo.com/beldecal/moddecpap.html
White and Clear Decal paper for Ink Jet and dye sublimation printers.

Some Lost In Space links:

bulletThe Good Friars Page
http://www.angelfire.com/scifi/goodfriar/
Has a variety of 3D rendering from Sci-Fi themes, including Lost In Space.  Nice renderings of what the Pod, Chariot & Gemini 12 would look like if they were included in the LIS movie from 1998.
bulletRodney's Lost in Space - The TV Series
http://www.virtualheartland.com/listv/index.html
A nice site dedicated to the original series.  Some interesting links as well.
bulletRodney's Lost in Space - The Motion Picture
http://www.virtualheartland.com/lismovie/index.html
Same guy, has two sites.  This one is about the movie obviously.  Great selection of movie images.
bulletThe Lost in Space Australia Fan Club
http://www.lisa.org.au/
Huge site with lots of interesting facts and stuff.  Amazing how big LIS is around the world!  Even a sneak peek at a proposed new LIS TV series.
bulletAlpha Control Home Page
http://www.alphacontrol.com/
If you want the chance to actually see the original Jupiter 2 viewport set, these people have it!  If you're in their area, go see it.
