Default Is there anybody who knows where I can get Red Dwarf plans?

Hello,
I was browsing this here interweb and I came across this rather wonderful forum. I have long wanted to build an accurate model of the titular ship from Red Dwarf. I was wondering if anyone here has the knowledge where I can find some plans or some really good reference photos of the original model.
I have already scoured the fantastic DVDs to find as much info as possible but as with these things it is always hard to get decent still images from a moving image.

Many thanks in advance of any help

Paul

Hello RedTrev,

Thank you for taking the time to post those pictures but unfortunatly the Corgi model is based on the Re-Mastered version of the ship which was also used in series VIII. I would like to model the Ship as was seen in the original series I to IV (The ship seen in series V was a different model with slightly different details, was smaller and was blown up after new flyby shots were filmed. The original ship had upsettingly fallen off a shelf during storage).

The Corgi models are beautiful though and it's a shame they never did a Blue Midget to complete the range, though they did do a Skutter which was released only in a limted edition Series VIII DVD boxset and has pull back motion. Speaking of Skutters I would love to be able to build a remote control Skutter... one can only dream because I really wouldn't know where to begin with that one!!

Paul
