Thanks for your ongoing support, folks!

DragonSlayer: Now you're getting ahead of me ;)  So far I have only designed the "toy" and the "old black and white TV show model."  Once I get back on rocket design, you will be seeing what you describe... which is "the real deal" as to be encountered by "our hero" when he first comes into a docking bay.

Headwax:  ummm... do you mean the toy photos, or my tin toy rocket work?

Right now I have moved a bit of my work over to Challenge 16 - Reflections... have made a preliminary fun-run of something, but now giving it a whole different dimension of appearance for "coolnesss".

Oh, I just had to share this pic below... it's a wonderful piece of inspiration art that I found while working on the space station design. Since the style is similar to what I want to recreate in this project, I thought it worth sharing here.



The base that "our hero" finds himself on is built within an asteroid, so when I came upon this pic, it was just sooooo cool! It captures the general style I want for the technology, having something of that 1950s/60s era sci fi look. The view I am creating for the "Reflections" challenge is going to be roughly in this general style.

Also, below a little shot of some indicator lights that will be getting a lot of use as detail imagery... I feel like I should share some little bit of development when I post...

Awesome picture there, Arik. Don't you wish it was yours..? :P

Cool project you're doing here, I'll be sure to keep my eyes on this thread in the future. :)

Yeah, that's a pretty sweet pic...  Thanks for your eyeballs, Geek...

UPDATED PIC 04/26/2010

Here we go... This is also part of my Reflection Challenge entry... working out a communication panel that is found in various rooms of the space station. I've rearranged things a few times to get a look I like, and I think this will do.

The upper right cylinder (dark lens) is a camera for transmission... The green/red lights indicate signal status (being received or "no signal"). The grill below the monitor us the microphone/speaker. I am working on a couple of control knobs - one shown in the images.

Note, the look, for those "in the know," is inspired by the dashboards of old late 1950s and early 1960s American vehicles - specifically the Ford Thunderbird and Edsyl. It is also a look that was considered futuristic to the Flash Gordon comics of the time.

Updated the commlink thing's pic. It came out better than I expected, and will do a lot to set the style for the rest of the sci-fi theme of the set.  I think it captures the look of the 50s/60s era of "futuristic imagery" pretty well. Chrome and all that stuff...

u got a really good pace going with this project. and ur doin a really good job so far. i get what your going for is it going to be a spoof? or is it more of a throwback, meaning your just stylizing after it and not mocking it. either way i think in 1 of ur scenes you should be able to see a wire on 1 of ur ships. in every old movie like that u could always see the wire. great job dude im looking foreword to seeing this get done.

3dgeek: I swear, yer my number one fan! Heck, I think you must be the whole forum's number 1 fan ;)

rellik420:  Well, the first message or two sort of spelled out the idea, but I'll try to give a re-hash... because the answer is sort of yes to all your questions... See, there are three aspects/versions of the "Corporal Cosmic"material in the storyline...

1: The toys and comic book - obviously completely unrealistic
2: The old-style black and white TV show that is meant to emulate the old Flash Gordon theme...
3: The "real thing" as if the whole concept truly existed until shutdown/abandoned in the mid 1960s.

So, there is to be the hokey black-n-white TV era of models with strings, etc. as a part of the TV show commercial to be seen in the first part of the storyline...... as well as the real thing approach, as if the whole Terran Space Force really did exist, and relics of the 1950s/1960s space force exist, forgotten in space. The last object I made is with the "real thing" approach. I am hoping that it puts the "realistic look" to some degree, to the storyline.

If you show the scene as if in the tv, it might be funny to add the string supporting the stars and stuff. That would make it look low budget and/or old. If you have seen the disney show Valiant, the "we want you" commercial in the beginning even has a balloon as the earth if I remember right.

There you go, that's the idea... the black-n-white TV show commercial is to be the one with the hokey half-failed special effects

That we all love and miss! The bad acting, the over-the-top narrator, the obvious fakery, the grainulated quality, mono sound channel, goofy costumes, unconsistent plot. My heart just THROBS for the past!

well there ya go! That's what I am aiming for, so to speak.... except adding the "what if it was all real?"  That is where the core of the storyline for this is.... a young guy in present day finding out that that such a thing really existed on a "real experience" level, not just hokey cheap sci-fi movies effects... and that humanity has forgotten due to subtle manipulations of history, memory, etc. And that the threat of "bug-eyed alien" invasion is eminent, and very close to happening.

I love where this project is going, getting more and more interesting!

I like the way you've described the story, "What if it were real"?
