A ton of work went into cleaning up the scan to create the replica

Messed with the comp and materials some more. Added a scan of a fish tank sunken ship to give some more story to the scene.

The outer skin feels like it's being pulled on like a sock, but the internals are great. Not sure what to recommend for that as building out plating to apply might take even longer

I cannot see the animation

BTW, what you've described as the "sensor pod" is the Emergency UEO Eband satellite systems. It was used at the end of season 1 to coordinate a global crisis response through encrypted comms. I dont think it's sensors unless you're redesigning the sub.

Awesome work, quite an undertaking to do a model with full interiors. I'm going to have to sit down and watch the show sometime.
I added the vinyl details for placement once scanned
Oh that's so cool!
My research suggests James Lima designed the seaQuest on paper, but who sculpted this?
I've read this was 3d scanned for the show, but I assume they remodeled over it. The show's CGI has too many sharp edges to be scan data, not to mention how heavy a 3d scan would be for their computers back then.
I bet. I've done scan cleanup for other projects.
I think Bridger was high when he designed seaQuest...
This. Is. PERFECTION!!
So, with some time on my hands, I've made an animated preview of the seaQuest being constructed as the camera moves through it.
Everything about this is VERY Work-In-Progress, but I wanted to get the idea out of my head to see if it could work visually. I think the ultimate look should be a time lapse construction.
I'm ok with the camera move, but I was thinking of having it go up and around the bridge as the bridge assembles and then back outside to end in the same way. The bridge is the most seen place in the show, I probably should show it off more.
Feedback is welcome. What do you think could make this cool? Is something not reading well to you? Is the camera moving too fast or slow?
Skin looks like a sock LOL. Yeah, I'm just animating a slice plane right now to "grow" the skin. Lemme see if I can texturize the border somehow & give a better impression of organic growth. Thanks for the comment.
Sorry I didn't fix this sooner, I was traveling.
I think its fixed now - "Embedding on other websites" was unchecked on YouTube.
Nah, not trying to redesign the sub. I probably couldn't remember what they called it. Good catch.
Sometimes I've not shown all the decks in my WIP 3d cutaways, so it might seem like those don't have enough decks.
Yeah, I originally started this as a 3d aid to make a more accurate cutaway/deck plans like Aresius posted above. And trying to reconcile:
1.) What's shown in the show,
2.) What's said in the show &
has been quite the puzzle. But that's probably what keeps me interested.
Enjoy the show for what it is. I'll let you make your own opinions, but each season is kind of a reboot. Accept that going in, and you'll probably like it more.
