New model completed based on another Starblazer comic No:103 ROBOTS OF DEATH July 1983 Cover art: by Keith Robson, Writer: T Stent, Interior Artist: Carlos Pino.
I tweaked the design and decided on its scale. I included in one image a scale referance with the classic USS Enterprise canon length and my other Starblazer design, Starhawk’s SpaceRider and I also included Dan Dare’s Eagle Shuttle from 2000AD the smallest vessel at 100ft
This design based on Ian Kennedy artwork is now finished, meaning I not going any further with it, I could but that’s always the problem with CGI, you always feel you can do more or need too.
First up is my finished renders, I will share specs later and I will update this thread, I have far to many threads for the same projects on this blog.
I am moving on to another design from another DC Thomson Starblazer comic, issue 103 ROBOTS OF DEATH Cover Artist: Keith Robson but its the internal art where the designs are found credited to Carlos Pino.
Of course I am taking a few liberties with the design going from the drawn to 3D,and I am not sure about the aft stabilizer but in the comic they do land on the surface.
I was asked to provide orthos of Dan Dare’s Eagle shuttle, I have finished a long run of designing Star Trek (images yet to be posted here) now I am thinking of working on the mother ship called the “Spacefort.
I decided it was time to add to the fleet and the Miranda and the Reliant variant class giving it my own spin in keeping with my reimagined Constitution class.
I choose the names and registries I like seen above ^ and with the question of deflector I have the centre of the 3 “windows” as a forward deflector and the outer 2 as forward sensors, I never liked the Franz Joseph dangling unit on his Ptolemy Class Transport design. In fact why not just have a deflector on the tug section attached as required might work as well and look imv better.
