MOTY 2018 ENTRY UFO INTERCEPTOR

Published by Kenny Conklin on

Oggie Gonzalez has entered his UFO Interceptor in the MOTY 2018 Online Contest. Here is what he has to say about the build.

This is a 1/48 scale replica of the Interceptor from Gerry Anderson’s UFO series. Since this kit was originally produced in the late 70’s/early 80’s the original decal sheet was old and damaged. Decals from www.jobt.ca were substituted and proved to be much more detailed and accurate. The model included a poorly molded cockpit and pilot figure which I replaced with a scratch built version. With some sanding I was able to convert a resin A4 1/48 scale Skyhawk pilot I found online. I painted then detailed him with shadows and highlights to mimic the look seen on the TV show.

I have been building models since I was about 8 years old. As many of us did, I picked up the hobby from my father. Without him, I would probably have never known this great hobby. I like to build everything from Military Models to Starships. Right now my passion is to build and light science fiction models.
