    Looking for references... the old thread here seems to have nothing but dead links!

    Thanks!

    Mike,

    I don't think I've seen that R2 pic before that is in your signature.

    Can you post it?

    The Star Wars Album does have a side view of the escape pod model.

    Hello

    I havenÂ’t done much research on the escape pod, but I ran across these shots while looking for Y-Wing references. The links to pictures are listed on this page:

    Hope it helps.

    mverta, that is outstanding. Is the model proprietary or have you made it available to the fan CG modeling community? Would love to have it if it isn't stepping on toes!

    I'm a film composer ( Listen Here ) who accidentally turned his hobbies (visual effects, sound design) into second careers, and decided to open a post-production company.

    I'm not making the model available at this time - even though the mesh is as accurate as it's possible to be (there were some variation amongst the real ones), the real key to his look is in the material work and rendering, a lot of which uses proprietary stuff I've had written for us.

    He was modeled in Maya, and rendered with mental ray.

    I've got a Halloween desktop image coming in the next few days you may be interested in!

    Thanks, guys...

    Ughh - Mike your R2 is amazing.

    Aren't you a member of the R2D2s builders group.

    I think I met you at an R2 LA.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the kind words!
