Re: The Spacedock "shuttle"

I was there for a meeting. I'll be back there and he said he'll take some pix of me with some of the models. Mind you, these aren't the originals built for the movies, but his recreations of same. The "tug shuttle" is 1/2 scale the photographic miniature, but as he made both the original and the replica, it's safe to say it's pretty damned accurate.

The first thing I saw when I stepped into his front door was this beautiful recreation of the "clipper" from 2001: A Space Odyssey, which is just over 3' long. Yep, kids, it's a model, not CGI.
