3DLIS Gemini XII

I've started a new project where I am working on the Gemini XII from the unaired pilot of Lost In Space. This test video was to test the static discharge tubes (Jacob's Ladder) and the blinking computer lights. Video is in 4:3 B&W format as would have been seen back in the 1960's.

    Boy you are really mastering some animation. Great to see your stuff posted here. Clean ship, great detail. It will be fun to see this progress.

    I'm loving it Al! Good to see someone finally tackle the original G12! And I like the Black & White approach.

    So, from a modeling standpoint, what do you think about the G12 vs the J2 wall panels being of slightly differing proportions? I look back on my J2 and think I might have gotten them a bit wrong even though I tried to follow the original Fox Studio blueprints. I compare them with screenshots from the DVDs and mine are a bit off. Do you think the panels are pushed farther out from the center than they were in the G12?

    Maybe it has something to do with the non-symmetrical angular spacing of the 8 structural ribs vs the J2?

    This is a really cool project. I love Lost in Space. :)

    Thanks everyone. The wider front window did making equal spacing between the ribs almost impossible. That and the floor being so much lower in the G12 then in the J2 also caused some adjustments to the height of the wall panels. I really think my G12 wall panels more look more accurate for dimensions then the J2. And yes, I pushed the wall panels out farther from the center of the ship due to the spacing of the ribs.

    I love the side-by-side comparison! Well done!
