Re: The Doctor Who Schematics Thread

This is awesome...gonna take a while to go over all the locations. Just a note on the names of the ships, sort of a nitpicky thing, but why would the Time Lord's use human sounding names for their ship class classifications? I wouldn't mind seeing a few "out there" "alien" sound names for once. This is "Doctor Who" after all

No no no, that is a completely valid point and critique.. I myself was thinking of maybe doing a series of names for those ships and basing them on old heroes of Gallifrey.. only I realized something..

most of their revered heroes were from the era of the Bowship, and space exploration...and the early days of time lord travels...

I could just make up some names, but here is the thing.. the Time Lord vocabulary is similar to that of the English as for words and terms of those words.. so what may sound Gibberish to us, in English would sound like Vanquisher (or translate into the meaning of the word).. and so on..

It's Not that I would not want to make my own names up, it is just that in the context of Doctor who, the names would be meaningless cause in our language the doctor would pronounce it as we know the word..

I could try and use ancient names that the Gallifreyans may have known for lesser gods and such, but the problem with that is realistically after the fall of the Pythia, and the expelling of them from Gallifrey, I can not see the Gallifreyans and Rassilon wanting to embrace any part of their mystical and irrational history..at least not on a fond level..

Thanks Admiral! It is based on a number of ideas, mainly the body shape being the most likely to mimic the style or the anthropology of the Rutan race, as they are basically electrically charged floating neon green glowing space-jellyfish..

Or more specifically:
In their natural forms, Rutans resemble large green jellyfish, glowing blobs of biomatter with long ropy tentacles. They are amphibious and can cling to sheer vertical surfaces, with considerable mobility out of the water despite their shape. Rutans can also generate lethal bioelectrical shocks, and seem to be able to absorb electrical energy directly for sustenance. It also seems as if their electrical energy capacity could allow them to fly or hover for periods of time..

so using that, and references from the doctor who episode "Horror of Fang Rock" with Tom Baker..

I decided a Rutan Pod fighter would have a similar shell in some respects.. and that their ship could siphon energy off other ship's shielding and use that as an advantage to disable an enemy.. through their ship tentacles..they would swarm a sontaran pod, and suck it dry then destroy it..also they would have forward laser batteries and a fluid filled cockpit..where the ship is controlled through a mental link provided by some discs that attach to their body..a schematic with that will be uploaded in detail to show you what I mean and will be included in the final work up of this ship..

Anyways, the tubes on the outer hull feed the ship's massive propulsion systems.. those rings on the side are what moves it through space.. I am thinking from ion energy, or maybe a unique form of sonic particle thrust..I haven't decided yet..I would imagine the Rutans were superior at sonic technology..

Re: The Doctor Who Schematics Thread

It looks like a good mesh of organic and mechanical materials which I like...be interested to see it colored.

Re: The Doctor Who Schematics Thread

Have you thought about doing Dalek and Cybermen ships?


Although the Dalek saucer is pretty much the default New Series ship (taking a cue from Dalek Invasion of Earth), they've used a few other ships here and there. There was a website dedicated to Dalek ships a while ago, unfortunately it no longer exists

I could swear the Cybership design seen in "Pandorica opens" was a CG recreation of the cyndrical ships seen in the Invasion...

Actually yes, after tackling the Gallifreyan Bowships, and the Rutans, my next project was going to be the Daleks saucers, crucible and a few other cool ships from their past..

I am also going to do the war tardis, and the cruciform, which is a magnificent Weapon!

Re: The Doctor Who Schematics Thread

I decided to revise the Rutan War pod design, and remove the tentacles..it was pointed out to me by a friend that the pod looked like a sperm with those hanging off the back..

anyhow, I decided it would be just better to go without those..more designs of the rutans and such are coming soon, and the Time lord compendium updates by tomorrow.. thanks for viewing!

Re: The Doctor Who Schematics Thread

I got quite a bit of fan requests recently for me to finish off the Bowships designs before continuing to the time lord compendium..

to that I say....

Let's Do it!

Also I got a few repeated requests to see the Avenger Class and Vanquisher class in a scale comparison..

so here it is from the side view and top view..

thanks for all the compliments..

Re: The Doctor Who Schematics Thread

BTW Starsuperion have you heard of the Jade Pagoda? It's introduced in a few of the novels, it's pretty much a TARDIS escape pod.

It's seen on the cover here:
