A lot of focus has been on the new Warship by Rick Sternbach but we have another new spaceship in the development phase – the mining vessel, the Intrepid Star. This long range deep space vessel is primarily used for the transport of mining ore from the outer planets. Woody Stables, our resident illustrator has been working on new 3D renders of the ship for 3D printing.
Woody’s initial sketches and those more detailed illustrations in the animated short gave a distinct style and shape to the vessel and he has carried this through to the new 3D Renders. Woody will finalise these in the next few days and we will then prepare the renders for 3D Printing. Until then, here are a few new updates and renders for you to review for this kit from Hostile Realms™ coming in 2015.
Woody has interpreted his sketches into a very true 3D model. As you can see below, the model will be 1:350 scale – around 177mm based on a vessel around 62m in length. We will be including an LED Lighting Set as an add-on to the model to light it is you prefer, as well as decals and clear parts for the windows and main Bridge.
