Sad news by way of the Replica Prop Forum. Steve Horch, the "H" in HMS, has lost his battle with cancer.

The connection to Blade Runner is that his prop company, HMS, did the restoration work on the electronics of the Hero Prop blaster, according to their web site.

I too am sad to read this, Steve was one of the good guys…

I used to buy Communicators and Tricorders kits from Steve back in the 80s when he wanted his name kept off his models so they would not hurt his hopes to get work from the studios...

So for years I took credit for his models.. Granted I built them and added electronics, so they were partly my own work.

In the 90s I was glad to set the record straight and say they were his kits.
