Foundation Faster Than Light Ship (civil version) - FINISHED


Well-Known Member
Building a 3D model of fantastic Apple TV Foundation serie. Fell in love with the ship design and the idea of a kind of singularity/black hole in the middle of the ship.
The Model will be a 3D printed kit. Also planed to bei lite up, so modeling the shape an details will only the first step on a long road…
Started with the inner ring with the windows…

and the basic shape of the ship.

I really like the design of those ships. They actually made 3D prints for the show that they scanned and then tweaked for the CG assets.

There are quit a view differences between the CGI and the physical models they made. I've tweaked and rebuild the bridge sections 3 times before I got the shape right (hopfully).
Here some evolution pictures:

And the final version of the bridge:

Also worked out some details
