Thanks. Now if I could conjure up a poster I was happy with perhaps this thread could live up to its title. Certainly have all the pod types now (sans VIP but that's just a matter of texturing).

OK, since you were kind enough to give it a bump...

Here's a color test on the VIP pod. Can't find very many references for this one, so to the experts: How close is the general color?

To me, it looks just about right, but I'm no expert.

Awesome images as usual, and thanks for posting more mouth-watering goodness

Based on the traces of colour found under some of the panelling when Mark42 restored the original model, they used just a regular orange.

If its any help i notice the VW brilliant orange i was using on the Eagle Lift kit,is a perfect match for the VIP PE Eagle colour (i have been using a spare VIP eagle to test the lift out)

I would use the VW brilliant Orange myself if i decide to make a 23" PE into a VIP version

Thanks everyone. Although I must admit I'm running out of things to do with her modeling and texturing wise. This was the one last bit I wanted to accomplish.

On rockwellcm's recommendation I have switched the color to something I think is very close to VW Brilliant Orange.

I was shown a screen cap from the show that clears up a conflict between the two main ways I've seen that pod painted. Specifically whether or not the upper rounded lip was painted. It appears to be. And for me if that lip is painted then so must have been the window area.





And for this close-up I saw that I needed to extended the "paint" to cover the lower most edge

You've heard it once, you'll hear it again;

Marvelous!

I do have one question, and most likely it has been answered on here before, but; would the VIP eagle have the Moonbase Alpha decals on the pod, or more like what you see with government officials, a decal stating their position, like Commisioner or something or other. I've watched Breakaway several times and cannot makeout if there is a even a decal on it.

Again, great job!

There have been 3 times in my life when I was utterly speechless.

1) when I saw Kate Beckinsale for the first time.
2) when I saw Kate Beckinsale in a bikini
3) now

Utterly gorgeous!!!!

Well I don't know about talent. I like to say that I'm persistent.

And thank you too. I added the Alpha signage mostly because that's what I saw in other images where people were trying their hand at it. I'm of the opinion that Alpha would have one or more of these to pick up and return with some visiting dignitary or another. Not everyone would arrive that way (the really big wigs would likely have their own transportation) of course. So could go either way I suppose. From a lazy man perspective, if I remove the decal form the pod I'd likely have to remove them from the rest of the ship and that's just too much like work.

Surely you exaggerate a wee bit? And I know it doesn't compare to Kate Beckinsale (clad in bikini or otherwise)

Blender rocks! Thanks.

No updates as I think that pod is done. Were there any others not addressed so far? It's been some time since I've watched the show.
