Well, the aliens have left me alone long enough that i can do some more work, awful internets on that mothership, they really need to stop using Tiscali.
I'm building this for a miniature model kit, this section is about 4.5cm tall when printed... See if you can guess the model.

Naaaah you beat me to it ! :mad:
It must be it
here's a clue, it's design was essentially "ripped off" for a popular 90's tv show.
Is that a 6 line sig?
Yes, we have a winnar!!!!1!
Actually a bit shocked it took this long, and that lee didn't get it... the detailing on the airlock door, and the "garage door" to the left of it are essentially Brickheads details.... just one of a few little bits that are hanging over from Johns earlier effort - which has been a big help in making this model and i can't thank him enough for it. aside from that and one or two little nurnies, nearly everything else you see is new work though... and its all 'water tight' for printing.
DOH, that was my next guess.
And John did a hell of a job with his. Looking forward to seeing yours come together
And yes, John did a great job, but crippled by poor & confusing reference material, some new material has been released recently of one of the models used originally... Apparently the poor thing has been hanging over diners at Planet Hollywood in Paris, for many years, i'm surprised its in as good condition as it apparently is, albeit missing a few parts.
One day, the mighty orb will land beside you, and you will forever know inner piece. Or it'll forcibly abduct you and use you for market research tasks, which may be invasive. you never know with the orb. Not much of a prize i admit, but the contract is binding either way.
I gotta say, i've been working with the new reference material for some time now and it really sheds a lot of light on this subject which in the movie was always shot under very bright, contrasty lighting and reference material is always hard to come by. complicating this is that as with many mini's, there are different versions in different shots. In the movie 2 models of Leonov were used, this is based on the larger, 3.75 meter version which been enjoying its retirement hanging in Planet Hollywood.
The other model is around 6ft, or 1.8m. According to the guff at the start of the reference book, its location is unknown... which i guess means either its in a shed somewhere, been burned, or some private collector has it.
Awesome work, as usual Steve!
lol @ Mikey. in Soviet Russia, flight control computer, err, runs flawlessly.
Easy as pie...uh...or.....A?cake?..Piece of cake?...damn it!!
