I was wondering is Shep Payne still around? He did tons of stuff for Monogram back in the '70's and '80's.

That really you? :confused: I'm just finishing up a dio for a client of a model you did for monogram . You remember the "Enola Gay" that you did for Monogram?

BTW I was born in '63, you sure about the last time you were called Shep?

He was joking, dude....

I'm not sure if Shep Payne is still around, but remember hearing that he was at one of the IPMS Nat's a couple years back. Don't hold me to it, tho, as I can't recall w/any certainty.

Sheppard Payne

Hi Guys,
I am pretty sure Shep is still around. Check out the upcoming MMSI show in Chicago. Sorry I dont have any info but I think it is this month.

Shep was invited to come give a seminar at my hobby club one night several years ago. He presented a slide show with his various work. That gentleman is a true artisan!

Cheers,
Max Bryant

It's limited my choices of career. I can't be a Doctor, for one thing. If I was ever in the service I wouldn't have wanted to be a Major, or a General.

The last I read he was still around, but suffering from such bad vision he is no longer able to build models.

YO
That scares me. My eyes are getting worse all the time.

I remember the Shep Payne inserts in the 70's Monogram Armor Series kits -- I LOVED those! I think the Screamin' Mimi Shermon Tank was my fave! Monogram reissued those about 10 years ago without the inserts. I just missed them cuz I didn't get back into modelling until about three years ago. I'd love it if they put them out again WITH the inserts.

:dude:

Fine Scale Modeler magazine recently set up an advisory board of noted model builders to consult with its editorial staff. Shep Paine is a member of the board. Recently I was in the Revell-Monogram plant in Northbrook, IL. The first things you notice in the hallways are the framed original box art paintings on the walls and the Shep Paine dioramas under glass in the middle of the halls. For a while back in the 1980s many Monogram kits came with pamphlets by Paine on how to construct dioramas.

Yes Shep Paine is still in existence. He was at the recents IPMS Nats in Chicago. I still see an occasional article in FineScale written by him.
The new version of his book is pretty good. The expanded portion is about figure painting.

I was taken to the Squadron Shop in the Chicago area in the 70's. Little did i knowthat Payne's work would spark a lifetime quest to build dioramas. That trip has cost me many dollars,and hours of work.

It could have been worse John. You could have been born in a commune circa' 1969 and been named Window.

Its Shep Paine, and he is still around. He has done some articles for Fine Scale Modeller, and has several older and newer books in print. I think there is a new book about his work or about him as well, and he has/had a web site. Shouldn't be too hard to find. BTW there are a couple sites with scans of his old Monogram diorama tip sheets posted.
