    My hand built EVA Pod built for author Piers Bizony and his Taschen book release, a more affordable version of The Making of Stanley Kubrick’s 2oo1: A Space Odyssey

    I'm more than happy to answer any build process questions.

    That's such a good clean build it looks CGI :)

    Any hope this would ever be a kit?

    Thanks so much!!! I really kicked myself for not getting the (i.e. not being able to afford at the time) collectors edition.

    It looks like this is just the big vertical book from the previous set, minus the screenshots book and the two paperbacks (production notes and script). And no metal box apparently. The page size looks to be slightly smaller as well.

    So basically you saved $930. :behave

    Thanks for all your comments, I have a few more progress shots I can post here but looks like David covered most of it :)

    You can find some of the processes explained here: https://www.tumblr.com/blog/markyeomodelmaker

    You'll have to scroll through my other projects first though!

    Karl, that sounds like you think a book full of screenshots and a script with production notes is not worth 930 US-$, or am I wrong? :wacko

    You may well be onto something there. :behave

    Not to hijack this fine Pod thread, but I found the Taschen 2001 package very disappointing. The vertical format for one, that was just a stunt by the book designer. He felt that a "unique object should be challenging" and that "it should unfold like a maze" or something, "you should take the better part of an hour to explore it." That's all verbatim from an interview with the book designer.

    The first edition was just a curiosity conversation piece for people rich enough to afford it.

    Nice to see an affordable edition, but again it appears to have that wonky vertical layout. Completely inappropriate for a Cinerama film.

    But anyway. Back to that awesome pod! :D

    What lee said, is there any possibility this could be a kit? Seems like a waste after all the work that went into it.

    The pod is soon to be in Pier's hands for the book launch, the most I can do short term at least is to make the side panel / side puck casts available to anyone who's wanting to start a build. They kinda make cool looking wall art too, got one up in the office.

    Hi guys

    I've set up an Etsy listing for you to order as you wish... Please bare in mind that I'm between workshops for the next 2 weeks and so I wont be able to start making your orders until I'm set up. But it's live now as requested :)

    Two listings are available.

    The first is for the wall hanging option:
    https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/238...ey-eva-pod-stylised?ref=listing-shop-header-3


    The second is for a pair at a discounted price for model builders looking to make their own studio scale replica:
    https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/238...y-eva-pod-16-studio?ref=listing-shop-header-2

    Thanks for looking

    Thanks very much
    No problem!

    For anyone looking to buy, I've set up a temporary workshop for this week and resin has been delivered so now is the ideal time to order before I start some film work on the 13th and get real busy.

    Thanks :)

    This is a super build. Being a fan of the movie, I am awestruck.
