Good work on the CRSU, the modeling translates nicely from the sketch.

Many thanks, Per. I'll have a spaceship attached to the umbrella soon, and I can promise that the spaceship will be every bit as advanced as the Cosmic Ray Shielding Unit

soapy
Cheers soapy. I don't want to lose any of the grandiose 'shock and awe' suggested by the concept sketch

shakes
Thankfully I might be spared a lot of the detail work in this one. You see, the crew and passengers will be down the back end of the spaceship flying Economy Class. You might have to go back to the concept sketch at the beginning to see what I mean. Sure it's a bit cramped down there, but no one said space travel was luxury. So that'll save me a lot of modelling time

GonzaloGolpe
Thank you very much. I really appreciate your kind words

Line Art / Model: Shock and Awe



Nothing but the best for our heroes. Apart from the sophisticated defence against deadly cosmic rays, this model has the leather steering wheel

Beautiful work Mark! Exellent design and paint job.
What sort of propulsion system are we talking here?
Pedal power…

Hey Per, I'm glad you ask because it's an important question.

Pedal power is a fine option. It's reliable, low-maintenance and easily fitted. Those things are important in modern spacecraft design.

Rubber band power was an option too but the rubber band is likely to break during a tense part of the story. And you've got to wind it up first. But it's still an option and when the fate of our heroes is at stake you don't want to rule everything out too quickly.

But there are some propulsion systems that I did have to rule out: Oars, for example. Oars are great in row boats but useless in outer space. You just go backwards and forwards in the same spot. And then there was the hamster on the treadmill. At first I thought that was a goer but then I realised Mona would never let me get away with it.

So I'm thinking some sort of anti-matter-powered propulsion or foot pedals. One of the two

Thanks Remko. Much appreciated. They're still in limited supply, you know, being so advanced and everything

GonzaloGolpe
Thank you. Yes the plaster shows that this spacecraft has already seen action, and come out battle-scarred. I think that's important

Hmmm. Many things to consider in a task like this…

First I would ditch the rubber band thing right away!
If you wind up a rubber band inside a ship like this and it breaks like you say….
Man I wouldn’t like to be Lanier up in that cockpit!



I like the Hamster idea! They are eager and nimble little guys!
And maybe Mona wouldn’t mind… she is into Guinea pigs (a whole different breed).
But how many Hamsters it takes to get back an forth to the rock needs to be calculated.




Finally your last proposal… I’m sure you will agree, a plain anti-matter engine would be to simple!
Have you considered….
Anti-matter powered foot pedals?
I know there are still so called experts out there. That suggest such a machine could never work.
But I say they are all jealous of my genius!

I like that idea too.. hamsters in a wheel...
as long as you feed them proper, I happy with it... ha ha
and Try is right GPs and hamsters not even same thing...
GPs would never run in a wheel, under their dignity...
a degus would tho, they are bigger than a hamster.
They look strong and are full of energy... and kind of cute...

really a funny spacecraft you have started.. love the flames...

I am pretty sure that is the first hot rod space craft I have ever seen. So kool! Maybe it needs a colossal bolt on fuel tank? My son george loves it, but wants to know why it has no wings? Great work. Cheers.

haha, sweet machine! The hamster wheel sounds good to me too, or maybe some kind of hand pump?


Either way - this will be a perfect space ship for our heroes!
