    This month is a short one, so I opted a more focused challenge... So how about Designing Star Trek in the style of Gerry Anderson? What that means is as such:
    1-you can do it in Supermarionation style in mind (like Thunderbirds or Terrahawks) ..or Live action (like UFO or Space: 1999)
    2-you can design ships or characters in the Anderson's Style (you can obviously photoshop puppets if you need to to show your creativity in his style.)
    Now I know everyone here knows of this Man's Iconic style...so let's try and tap into it and see what we come up with.
    Any Questions just post them here :)
    Good Luck!

    Neat idea! Always loved the Thunderbirds style. Will think about ideas!

    As usual, these rules apply for this contest (from the Art Challenge Guidelines):
    • the artwork you submit should be created during the month of the challenge
    • only one final image can be submitted (although it may contain multiple views)
    • your final entry should be posted in this thread (although dedicated WIP threads are appreciated)

    Such a bummer I can't find the mashups from back in the day. You know, the ones some people made because Jonathan Frakes directed the Thunderbirds movie?

    With Google I found this old creation from ten (!) years ago by Ptrope. Maybe it's inspiring to some …

    Even though I spent much more time on the other animations in my work in progress thread, I'm entering this image as I prefer it's simplicity and because -- She's mighty-mighty, just lettin' it all hang out.. OW!:

    A "last hour" submission probably better identified as a "gag" entry...

    Trek: 1999

    Admittedly, it's not quite "finished' as I don't have any markings on the "Mobile/shuttle", so I'm certainly not expecting many votes.

    I've long thought the SHADO Mobile had s silhouette vaguely similar to the Galileo, so I thought, "Let's swap out the treads for a pair of nacelles." Since the Mobiles occasionally deployed weapons, I plopped "The Cage" cannon . Spock sports a mishmash of the Moonebase Alpha spacesuit topped by the "Tholian Web" helmet in 1999 colors.

    I modeled the neck ring assembly, the control cuffs, the chest pack (and unseen the "proper" 1999 helmet and visor.
