Here are two pix of the full size Reman fighter, “the Scorpion.”  The ST Nemesis art Department windows looked out across the Marathon Mill, and we could watch this beauty come together from the beginning to the end as she almost is in pic # 1.  Sadly this little ship got very little screen time while the CG version stole must of the show.  What you see here is the final paint scheme.  Weeks earlier, the ship was a high gloss purple and was quite stunning…an executive decision was made that the ship was too colorful and shiny so the whole vehicle got textured and painted black.  In addition is a pic of the 1/12th scale miniature and one of the concept sketches.

I’ll post more shots once I’m in Wyoming and all the pix and art are unpacked…everything has been boxed for the move for about a year now so the big Trek art posts have been thin due to not having access. OK then, enjoy the pix and have a great Thursday.


Jin n tonic friday


Howdy all and happy end of the week,,, It has been a long time since we have had a pinup Friday and for today I have a very special young lady I want to introduce you too and she goes by the name of Jin n Tonic.. Jin is an actress/model from Idaho and now resides in Bakersfield California!!!  We met a few months back and did our first shoot on the military vehicles at the Supply Sargent (also in Bakersfield) and had a great time. Jin’s talent for modeling and passion for art of using herself as the medium is without measure.  She was fearless at striking wickedly awesome poses on very precarious parts of tanks & trucks and she added a new life to the vintage word pinup.  I so love the pix we took and working with Jin is a  blast of inspiration,,,,, she jumps right in with ideas and themes to make every set up a lot of fun with fab results from the camera’s POV…. We have more shoots planned as soon as the weather allows and hopefully she’ll give the 60’s red dress ago.  I couldn’t wait to get these pictures posted and am so glad to finally get to do so. to see more of Jin’s work follow the link below and if your in need of great model, be sure to give her a call.

Arizonza turns 100

I Had a moment to get on with a quick post wishing my home state a happy 100th, I’m on the road so sorry for no pictures just text!!! To most February is Valentines day but to Arizonan’s it a magical day, and it is so hard to belive the state is only 100 years old!!! I was born and raised here and moved away at the age of 23 to pursue a career in Hollywood,, On weekends and in between jobs I would head home for as long as I could stay. As much as I love my job I would gladly leave CALIFORNIA to do the same thing or something similar back home in Beautiful HOT Arizona!!! All of my greatest memories and inspirations came from here. The Wallace and Ladmo show, Wagon wheel Kiddieland, Legend City, Pioneer Arizona, TheKing Rangers, A J Bayless, The Pop Shoppe, Drive in movies, The Cine Capri, the Kachina, theater, the Sombrero theater, Darcy’s Discoveries (the Store Where I discovered Cinefex Magazine and the wide world of Comics) Christown, Tower Plaza, the Sugar Bowl, Bethany Bible church, Town and Country Mall, Manns Christown theater, CamelBack Mountain, Luke AFB, The Phoenix wax Museum, Squaw Peak, the Hamburger Works, Peter Piper Pizza, Reatta Pass, The Cook Shack, and Greasewood Flats.  Hero’s, Musicians, teachers, and legendary figures such as Robert McCall, Alice Cooper, Chuck Bell, Darlene Goto, My parents Jim and Fran Eaves, My sister Christi with an I, Steven Spielberg, The Tubes, and Sharon Kelly  Movies that were filmed in my state like, Used Cars, Flight of the Phoenix, Raising Arizona, and Psycho. Great friends like Rod Andrewson, Jeff Goff, Steve Boltz, & Brian Sikon. As in all of our lives we have special places, memories and friends and it’s always fun to reminice,, If your from Arizona, a lot of the above mentioned will probobly stir memories for you as well.. If your not from here I hope my brief moments of recelection can emphasise what a wonderful State Arizona is. So with all that said, Happy Birthday Arizona and happy 100th.

Merry Christmas 2011 from the eaves family



To all my friends here on the blog, my entire family and I wanted to wish everyone that visits here a very Merry Christmas.  This March will be the third year of Eavesdropping with Johnny, and it has been such a pleasure to have met so many new friends and post so many artifacts from the world of Trek and beyond.  The last year has been a busy one and there have been few posts, but with the coming of 2012 the blog will be up and running hopefully as regularly as it was in the first years.  Lots of stuff to scan n post will be coming, and I’m looking forward to more special StarShip designs named after some of the readers here.


Christmas is a special day in the Eaves home, and we are all so very thankfull for all the friends and family that we have so close to us and for the gift of Gods’s son Jesus who was born on this day.  Thank you, Lord, for this and all You do for us.  A very special Merry Christmas to all the brave men and woman who serve in the US Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy, and the Coast Guard for your service and sacrifice in keeping us here at home and those abroad safe and free.


 The Shepherds Worship the Savior: Out in the fields, an angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds who were tending their flocks of sheep by night. The angel announced that the Savior had been born in the town of David. Suddenly a great host of heavenly beings appeared with the angels and began singing praises to God. As the angelic beings departed, the shepherds decided to travel to Bethlehem and see the Christ-child. There they found Mary, Joseph and the baby, in the stable. After their visit, they began to spread the word about this amazing child and everything the angel had said about Him. They went on their way still praising and glorifying God. But Mary kept quiet, treasuring their words and pondering them in her heart. It must have been beyond her ability to grasp, that sleeping in her arms—the tender child she had just borne—was the Savior of the world.
