    Very nice, I like your take here on the venerable UFO interceptor. Are you planning on doing any other Gerry Anderson craft?

    I like everything about it but the nose. That protrudes a bit too much for my taste. What is the purpose of that part? Is it a weapon or a sensor or something?

    great work and well textured. i'm not hugely keen on the overall design but i really like the details and surfaces. i think the thing on the nose is a bomb/missile?
  • RAF-MXRAF-MX10 Posts: 0Member
    Thanks evil_genius_180 and spacefighter !!!

    Yes spacefighter its a big missile !!!
    evil_genius_180 A? Which part do you mean ? he he !!...actually all the nose is a missile launcher, driven by magnetic forces. (... at least on my redesign !!)

    One of the things that like the most about sci-fi is that you can make whatever you like, so ... !! yes !! some parts of the nose are sensors and target designators for the big missile on the front !!

    thank you guys for the feedback !!

    I meant the part that looks like a missile. Knowing that's what it is helps me like it better. ;)

    A great redesign. Nice going Rafe.
  • Was looking for info about the UFO Interceptor and ran across your images. Rafa, you sure did a magnificent job with your redesign of the iconic ship from the TV show. I remember as a kid in South America going nuts every time the interceptor took flight. With the 3D printing these days, perhaps you could kit it. If you do, let me know!!
    Gracias, muito obrigado for sharing!
    Parabens!
