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 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.
