MY OWN LITTLE FLEET

I'm always playing around with SketchUP. And most of what I make, playing around, is space ships. I can never come up with to many ship designs. I know what you're thinking..... "Yes, yes you can". But really. No, no I can't. So here are some more. I put them together in a line up to see them in reference to one another and thought, maybe they go together as a little fleet.


The ship on left is in previous post. Now arranged with two new ones. A big star ship in the middle, a large destroyer on the far right.




Now those three are next to a massive jumbo star ship.



Yes.... thats a squadron of fighters tucked in between the ships for scale. HUUUUUGE ships. I love it.

SPACESHIPS DESIGN

Just knocked out another one. Felt a little rusty at first having not played with sketchUp for awhile but it all ( mostly) came back. Kind of turned out like a buff ass Klingon bird of prey-ish ship.

VARIATIONS ON A THEME

So I was modeling a ship based off of a triangle- cause its cool- then just went from there and tried variants on cockpits and proportions and stuff and developed a little fleet.

ICARUS TAKE

As per a request here is a quicktime of a board I did as an exercise based on the greek mythos of Icarus. I give my students the assignment of boarding their own take on a greek myth or some other fable. Its a great exercise. You should try it.

TITAN

My son came up with this story about a giant robot SOOOO big that people live inside it. He's been writing a story about it. I was inspired to build his "TITAN". This robot is 3027' tall. That's like half a mile. I hope he's big enough for my son.

I threw in the Eiffel Tower for scale reference. 



The TITAN's foot in scale with the base of the Eiffel Tower.

View of the TITAN from the ground.

That little speck on his collar bone area is the size of a human.
