HERE IS MY LATEST PROJECT: THE 'SPIDER TUG' OR 'WORKER BEE' FROM THE FILM SOLAR CRISIS (1990).
The filming miniatures were made for this film by Boss Film, they were all designed by the legendary Syd Mead. This 'spider tug' was used to shuttle around the larger spaceships.
This model was made in two sizes: 15" x 15", and 5"x 5". this is the smaller of the two. I have estimated it to be 1/32 scale. This is the original filming miniature that i restored. It was in bad shape. warped in some areas, and collapsed in others. overall, i am very pleased with the restoration. It was completely hand-made, and the craftsmanship is superb. Extremely fine details everywhere.
The only thing missing from this was the RCS thruster blocks. i had them made in SLA.

I'm putting the pieces in rubber next week, and will do a build-up of it.
