Re: Screen Accurate Large Scale PPA

I was amazed how good you got the lens for the eyes. I wonder whether it could use a metal or thick plastic frame: something shaped like a sputnik or a sea-mine inside to hang the arms and legs and antennas off, so that it's not all being supported by the outside shell. It must be good to still be h...

Re: Screen Accurate Large Scale PPA

Thanks for giving us an update on the project here, You got a really good fit with the red acrylic window over the eyes. The whole thing looks really nice and smooth. What's the next step going to be? Is he getting the arms next, or the wing flaps added? I always find it amazing me how creative and ...

Re: RIP Al Matthews

Terrahawks is a very odd show at times but the music carries it along really well. The score from Richard Harvey sets the atmosphere well: it's very electronic and sugary but also a bit ominous and mysterious. And then it has a lot of pop music and a lot of entertaining nonsense with the recording s...

Re: Babylon 5 on Blu Ray

I had a read around the B5TV.com forums and the B5 reddit, which is full of entertaining comments about all aspects of the show. The views there on Road Home were often similar to mine: that Sheridan lacked any agency to make changes wherever he landed up and it became a ghost train ride that was qu...

Re: RIP Al Matthews

That's a fantastic picture and story to go along with it. I can imagine the recognition from Star Fleet being a lot less frequent than that of Star Wars, but then Star Wars was a cultural phenomenon in the 70s, in the same way that Star Trek was in the 90s. I don't know what the situation is with sc...

Re: Babylon 5 on Blu Ray

Well, we made our way through all 5 seasons on the blu-ray ... The show looks a lot better this way. The CGI starts to get a lot more detailed and realistic in season 2 and by season 3, it's looking really good. The picture quality gets noticeably worse when it cuts from pure live-action shots to co...

Re: What a great time to be alive

I think it's good to have 'real' hobbies like what you're doing. My colleague at work is getting more into lego: building star destroyers and the like and jigsaws as well - anything to get away from the computer. This Thunderbirds 2086 build is good. It could maybe use some panel marking with a gund...

Re: What a great time to be alive

Big/government tech have done a good job of putting the online forum out of action, in general, but they haven't managed it with us. Even sites like DITL.org, which is a big Star Trek database site, that has a forum, doesn't have a great deal of activity and there's probably more to say around Star ...

Re: 3d creations

This is an absolutely fabulous idea. The moonbase is a fascinating location: much more interesting than the EDF headquarters on Earth. It doesn't really feature enough in the show, or in the merchandising, and is normally a bit underserved in the fan works as well. This is going to look fantastic as...

Re: 3d creations

Congratulations on short-circuiting the process of ordering the moderoid Dai-X and having a great trip at the same time.
That sounds like a great experience.

I was sorely tempted to travel across to see the 2022 exhibition, but the travel restrictions were absolutely ludicrous.
