RIP Ron Thornton
Joe Dredd
Variety are reporting the passing of Ron Thornton.

Although best known for his work on Babylon 5, Ron worked on B7 and particularly deserves praise for Scorpio - famously building it in his living room.

oh Boo!!
I have concluded that Jenna is Blake-aware, Blake is Avon-aware, Avon is self-aware and Gan is rarely aware. Vila is merely wary. Cally is frequently more away than aware.

Sad news RIP
The foolish reject what they see;
the wise reject what they think.

Really sad to hear of this news. I know Ron had been seriously ill for a while, but there was hope he'd improve.

Such sad news, as Exterminator said, it looked like he was improving.

I was lucky to have a few internet chats with him over the years and he was always so friendly and helpful.

He saved Phil and I from hours of fruitless searching for a part on the Scorpio model, for which I'm sure we will both be eternally grateful for!

I was hoping to maybe meet up with him one day on one of his returns to the UK.

Thoughts to his family and friends.

Sad news indeed, the Scorpio was a good design...

The ships on Babylon 5, looked familiar in a few places.. The Drazi Sunhawk looked like it could have been built by the System and the Earth Shuttles, had similar angular lines to the Scorpio. Excalibur too looked a bit Liberator-esque

Rest in Peace Ron, you have passed away in the same year as many other talented people, must be getting busy 'up there' Sad

Well said.

Just learned of this tragic news myself.

RIP Mr Thornton, I have a model of the Scorpio on my desk speaker. It will remind me of you always.

So sad.

Fellow fans, I have a special request. There are thankfully only 4 weeks left of 2016. Could you all please promise me, you'll take good care of yourselves and for goodness sake let no one else die. The loss is getting unbearable.
