    Looking good, what are you using for references?

    Every time I have searched there has been virtually nothing online.

    That angle makes it look like a butt. Maybe that could be the back of some kind of vaccu-form chair.

    This has been on my (must one day model) to-do list for an age; looking forward to seeing this one progress.

    Initial feedback is the bust should be more refined, more perky as it were...

    Well, on something we can all agree, it doesn't look like your typical spaceship! :lol:

    From "Battle Beyond the Stars" or as I like to say "Star Control - The Movie" ^^

    She is one of the weirdest designs ever I must agree.
    For reference I'm just using the grainy crap online and watching the movie looking for whatever shows onscreen.
    There was/is a thread or two over on the RPF with a few pics I'd not seen before.

    I remember seeing a model of it on TV a long time ago and the designer said it was made by taking a casting of a woman laying down with her back arched back. But was a long dang time ago so I might be mistaken.

    Could be an interview of the Chiodo Brothers.

    looks like a good start, I've seen this strange film a few times, Nell was always a mamorable, err, memorable ship. Having John-Boy from the Waltons in it made it all the weirder somehow.

    I think James Cameron worked on this, I'd have to check the credits but AFAIK, he was working for Corman at the time.

    He did, in fact he made that ship.

    I remember this ship, when I first saw the movie, I thought the ship could use a bra.

    Thos movie is always a guilty pleasure. I liked robert vaugh in it.
  • mikalamikala176 Posts: 440Member
    Robert Vaughn and George Peppard were the big stars of that movie.
    Although Sybil Danning brought some stunning assets along with her.
  • bosunbosun62 Posts: 0Member
    Robert Vaughn played the same role in The Magnificent Seven (best ever remake of The Seven Samurai) and Battle Beyond the Stars (worst ever remake of The Seven Samurai.)
  • mikalamikala176 Posts: 440Member
    Well at least he was consistent!

    A real PITA to model, that is if you are lucky and have a ld of this show or if they ever pressed it to dvd. ?? It was probably filmed on bottom shelf 35mm if that. lol GRAIN/ I could swear I had a toy of this ship or some model. Was a real ship collector managed to get toys of ships from shows I did not know what untill years later. Definitely Sunday movie fodder, watched this many times as a kid.

    No kidding.
    I'm trying not to use that Garage kit for ref as a lot of it is off. Especially in the wing (engine/weapon?) area. Great for rough layout though.
  • MadKoiFishMadKoiFish4465 Right in the plumsPosts: 4,605Member
    Yeah that whole bridge area and offset detail which I have forgotten what it was, are way WAY off. Not to mention the boobs etc. I could swear there were a few B&W studio shots out there sans the bra and ribbed tube, but I cannot find anything.

    There were some decent ones in an old Starlog or Cinemagic (that I used to have but can't for the life of me find now)magazine.
    It showed the Chiodo Brothers I believe standing on a large alien terrain set with Nell hovering above it.

    Oh man that is probably where I am remembering it from. I have a box of those damned things somewhere. I doubt it would be cir the era but more like a showcase look back given I think mine start about 86 or so. I had one full of blakes 7 stuff that I keep meaning to find again and scan it in before I loose the mags.

    I was going to get the bluray from america, but I noticed it was coded to that country only.

    I always thought blurays were region free?
