I thought that some of you might be interested in these shots. I've already posted one of them in another Red Dwarf thread, but they are more suited to the Studio Scale Forum. Now that RDX is out I can share.
This was built for the close-up fly-by shots seen in the opening credits and other establishing shots. It is an 8'x4' panel. I had a week to build it with the help of Steve Howarth.
Much of the panel work is from 4 huge Revell 1/200 North Cormorant kits that we had and are also a bunch of castings that Bill Pearson had made over the years dotted around the panel.
RDX was shot with HD Red Epic cameras, so we needed quite a high level of detail for the close up shots. The surviving Red Dwarf model wasn't up to it.
Most of the sections are removable so they can be swapped out for others to give the director more variety.
Big thanks to Guy Cowen for sending me a box of kit parts to help get the job done!!
