OT + WIP: Kirby-style Helicarrier MSD

Something I've been toying with for a little while...and it needs a lot of work.

Re: OT + WIP: Kirby-style Helicarrier MSD

Progress update:




Started laying down function areas by colour code. Green for commissaries, blue for gravity field projector arrays, orange for lifts, and purple for the IRBM silo for on-board satellite launch capability.

"IRBM, you say?"

It was Eliot Brown's idea per the first Marvel Universe Handbook of the early 1980's, designed as an "in case of nuclear war on Earth and the planet still needs defensive comms" satellite-launching feature and the regular Nick Fury series - starring Nick Sr. at the time - took that idea and ran with it as a plot point about a decade or so later. So, it's in this drawing.

Colour-coding subject to change, of course...

Damn sweet!
Always loved the heli-carrier, and this s one sweet project.
I think my favorite version of the carrier is the one in the live action film Nick Fury: Soldier of Shield (the one with Hasselhoff)...the thing was a beast with those huge turbine engines!

Re: OT + WIP: Kirby-style Helicarrier MSD

Thank you, Atolm! Hoping to get a better handle on it as I go along!

I saw that version from the Hasselhoff Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD TV movie back when the film aired. It was...well, it was unique with outboard engines of that size!

Here's the rest of the Pericles Project folder to date...

Looking forward to thoughts, there and here.

Adding in colour-coding for living quarters, additional C³I spaces, weapons emplacements, hull structures, sickbay compartments...

Can I ask why you have it in a right to left orientation?
I was taught that since we read left to right, that is the more masculine/aggressive view.

Re: OT + WIP: Kirby-style Helicarrier MSD

1. I was working from Eliot Brown's published line art in the old Marvel Universe Handbook. (Speaking of whom, I'd like to see him getting more work from comics publishers in general these days.)

2. Force of habit from looking at Trek-style MSDs.

3. Not what I've been taught in drafting class. In fact, it's never really been an issue raised in my experience.

this is a modern helicarrier, which is neither afraid nor ashamed of its feminine, sensitive side.
