US Razor from Battlezone

Here's a larger print of the M580A2 Scout (Razor) from Activision's rebooted Battlezone game. This was printed at a much larger scale than my existing M580A2 Scout and then painted in the Black Dog colour scheme. It's almost finished, other than the Black Dog logo being painted onto the wing and side. I want practice a bit more painting logos before I put it on the model.


Because the redux models are higher poly, I could get much more detailed with the painting as there were crevices to put wash into, and angles to highlight. This was also much bigger in size (it's about 14cm in length rather than 2-3cm of the initial one).

Here's it on the moon surface stand that I made shortly after:


Here are some work-in-progress shots of the model:

Who I am

I'm Blake and I like to tinker with things and make stuff. When I'm not programming or developing random systems, I'm playing with electronics, doodling bits of art, 3D modelling or sculpting and painting things or nerding out watching sci-fi or horror TV.

From 2001 I worked in the games industry, eventually specialising in tools to aid in the development of video games and their engines. In 2011 I left the industry and teamed up with a few other talented composers to utilise my knowledge to help build the company 'Spitfire Audio'.

I also periodically compose soundtracks for video-games and have worked on titles such as The Stanley Parable and Portal Knights. You've probably also heard my music in random TV commercials at some point.
