    At that stage, that kitbash reminds me of Pearl Forrester's "Widow-Maker" from "Mystery SCience Theater 3000". :)

    I know you meant the styrene kitbash in-line linked above, but here's a page showing what is ldentified as the "the" actual WidowMaker prop used in MST3K.

    I've seen a reproduction that employed, ahem, "personal massage" devices as the rocket thrusters. (Yes, I had the gall to use the word "thrusters" in the same sentence as "personal massage" devices.) :lol:

    Sincerely,

    You know, I didn't realize until you said this that scotpens' post had an image in it. Apparently the firewall is blocking it. :(

    Nothing "new" today, but I posted this over in Forbin's thread:

    Some fun I was having turning on/off layers!
    [​IMG]
    Just a demonstration of the different layers I used on the shuttlecraft. Left column has the "lines" layer off, right column on. Alternate rows have the "shading" layer on & off. And the lower half has the "colors" layer on.

    It does make for a nice effect with different layers on/off.

    Which is causing the "gag reflex"?

    The thought of belittling Trek with Transformers?

    ...or...

    Hey, the yellow one looks more like the sub from Thunderbird 2

    Went to Boy Scout summer camp for a week as a Scoutmaster, then we had Independence Day, so I got a bit off-track. But here's a new one for today!

    The Doctor is in. Great work, BJ. :techman::techman:

    I guess I could say, "My other shuttle is the Tardis."

    Thanks! Yeah, the simple shading model would fit in quite nicely. :D

    After publiusr mentioning the Bumblebee look resembled Thunderbird 4, what about the other Thunderbirds?

    Or any other Gerry Anderson craft for that matter!

    If you had a better angle to show the roof, you could do a General Lee from the Dukes of Hazard. ;-)
