"JB: For a long time I resisted using Poser figures in my models, mostly because they did not import well to the modeler. They tended to come in as very visible polygons. Then, late last year, I got a newer version of Strata and a newer version of Poser (and maybe I even figured out what buttons I was pushing wrong), and the figures came in nice and smooth. Naturally, superheroes were a next step, and this guy came along not too long after that. The robot he's trouncing is an earlier model, from a robot series, this one titled 'Clunker' -- for obvious reasons!"


"JB: The very first model I tried to build with Strata was an Enterprise. (Yes, I am just that much of a geek.) This isn't it. This one came along about a year later, when I had finally figured out what I was doing. The background is an astronomical photograph, not a model."

"JB: Even before the Generations project became a reality I was building Batmobiles. As with many of my models, this one did not know when it was finished, and became not just a car, but a whole set, including Batman himself."


"JB: I have an idea brewing in my head for a comicbook series set in the very early 20th Century. I decided that if I ever got around to it I would use a lot of models, especially of vehicles, much as I have in Generations. This is one of those models, part of a considerable 'library' that's been growing, even though the actual series is no further along than it was when I built the first model for it!"


"JB: I spent several weeks modeling in the Past, what with my trucks and Martians and whatnot -- so I decided to move into the future for a bit, and this was the result. (This model uses a special form of lighting, which accounts for the somewhat 'gritty' look.)"
