Retro Spaceship - WIP

I started this ship back in August or before in 2006. This is as far as I ever got with it, found it today and did these renders. It's about 75% finished, needs more paneling work and detail and the inside of the cockpit detailing. I'll eventually get around to finishing it, in between other stuff no doubt. I was going for a retro Dan Dare/Flash Gordon type feel with this. I love War Rocket Ajax from the Flash Gordon movie.

The cockpit will probably have seating for 4 and I might do some other windows further along the ship sometime.

I love that old school look man, very cool, would love to see a movie done all retro styles like that.

Oh how about you Brits refurbishing "Blakes 7" like "ST:TOS"?
I Would love to see the Liberator battles represented with modern VFX.

Sheldnz, I did start building a CG replica of the London from the eraly episodes of Blake's 7, I'll try and post it up here soon. It's about half finished.

I like your work Andrew, thanks for your comments on my blog too by the way.

Diggin' that retro style ship - nice rendering.

If you ever fancy doing some collab stuff - messing around with concept sketches / ideas and such - drop me a line.
