    Terrain Ideas.

    Just found this site, some interesting sci-fi stuff

    http://www.skankgame.com

    I could not get a specific link to work, but if you select, Articles, from the dropdown menu on the left that will get you to the modelling section.

    The landing page is definitely lacking, I agree. I got the best inspirational content from the Gallery page.... some impressive stuff in there from a modeling perspective.

    The big transport may remind many of Damnation Alley but for me it is pure MARS 1 from the Morrow Project. I didn't nose around but you are right, the gallery was worth the trip. Thank you for the link.

    The transport in Damnation alley is one of my all-time favorites, and really hit a nerve when I first saw it way back when...and it still holds up as a great example of something that makes perfect sense in design to use. The Eagle 1 in Space 1999 is also an example of a cargo/mission transport that I could totally see developed in real life.

    A great vehicle...called a land master. 12-wheeled all terrain vehicle where the four sets of wheels were in a Tri-pattern...if you blew a tire, you;d rotate to a new one if I remember right. I guess it also helped with ascending steep rocky terrain? Check out this link for cool background.



    The movie came out the same year as Star Wars: A New Hope, so needless to say it was eclipsed. Jan-Michael Vincent starred as the focal character, but it also featured George Peppard and Paul Winfield, so a pretty great cast. It wasn’t anything as grand as Star Wars, but on par with say, Logan’s Run.



    Oh, and the book it’s based on is even better!

    By Roger Zelazny if I remember right. A very underrated author.
