NAZI UFO 1:100 (the Iron Sky movie, 2012)

In the last moments of World War II, a secret Nazi space program evaded destruction by fleeing to the Dark Side of the Moon. During 70 years of utter secrecy, the Nazis construct a gigantic space fortress with a massive armada of flying saucers.
When American astronaut James Washington (Christopher Kirby) puts down his Lunar Lander a bit too close to the secret Nazi base, the Moon Führer (Udo Kier) decides the glorious moment of retaking the Earth has arrived sooner than expected. Washington claims the mission is just a publicity stunt for the President of the United States (Stephanie Paul), but what else could the man be but a scout for the imminent attack by Earth forces? The Fourth Reich must act!
Two Nazi officers, ruthless Klaus Adler (Götz Otto) and idealistic Renate Richter (Julia Dietze), travel to Earth to prepare the invasion. In the end when the Moon Nazi UFO armada darkens the skies, ready to strike at the unprepared Earth, every man, woman and nation alike, must re-evaluate their priorities.

About the Film

Iron Sky is a dark science fiction comedy directed by Timo Vuorensola and will feature musical score composed by Laibach. The film is produced by Blind Spot Pictures and Energia Productions in Finland, and co-produced by 27 Films in Germany and New Holland Pictures in Australia. Principal photography took place in Germany in November-December 2010 and in Australia in January-February 2011.
Iron Sky premieres at the Berlin International Film Festival in February and opens in theaters in April 2012 with Finland opening on 4th of April and Germany on the 5th of April. Other countries will follow soon after.
The primary language of the film is English.
there's a lot of mecha a long the movie, the UFO looks nice to make the model, since got no 3view just re-scale  from the movie picture.Here some early progress.....SEIG HEIL!


SHINKAI 6500 1:35

SHINKAI 6500 is a manned submersible that can dive up to the depth of 6,500m, outperforming other manned research vehicle all over the world today. In 1990, SHINKAI 6500 began the mission to study topography and geology of the seafloor as well as organisms in the deep sea at Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean in addition to Japan Sea., and exceeded the 1000th dive in 2007.
Ascertain Movements within the Earth's Interior
Investigate movements within the Earth's interior, such as large earthquakes, plate subduction, and mantle plume activity, and clarify the way in which the Earth was formed.
Clarify the Evolution of Living Organisms
Investigations of the previously unexplored deep sea have so far revealed a wide range of extremely unique biological communities and chemosynthetic ecosystems. Chemosynthetic ecosystems are ecosystems that have virtually no dependence on the Sun's energy in which chemosynthetic bacteria produce organic materials using substances such as hydrogen sulfide and methane in seawater expelled from the interior part of the Earth as their energy source. It is hoped that studying these deep-sea ecosystems will help to clarify the origins and evolutionary processes of living organisms.
Utilization and Conservation of Deep-Sea Organisms
In order to solve future issues faced by the human, such as global food issues, research into the sustainable use of deep-sea biological resources and the gene resources of deep-sea organisms, which feature a diverse range of physiologies, is required.
Resolve Thermal and Material Cycles
The history of global environmental changes, including climatic variations and the intensification and attenuation of tidal currents, is recorded in the various types of sediment found on the seafloor. SHINKAI 6500 will be used to collect samples of such sediments for analysis.
Heat and materials expelled as a result of hydrothermal activity on the seafloor have had a definite impact on the global environment. Understanding hydrothermal systems in the deep sea will lead to further understanding of global environmental changes.
