Humanoid - Claw Ship
A bit of a difference from the HMS Camden Lock made for Hyperdrive, this CG Model is based on the Claw Ship that is used to catch Richard Kiel's character Golob in the Italian Sci-Fi film The Humanoid, I only had frame grabs to work from provided by my mate Gonz who runs The Humanoid site I posted about yesterday. The films miniatures were built by Armando Valcauda and Paolo Zeccara, and I'm not quite sure what they were thinking when they designed such a strange ship. It's pretty cheap and cheerful looking in the movie and it really looks like they've used any pretty much any Airfix model part that was to hand. So this is more a representation of the ship rather than an accurate copy !
