You have a natural eye for composition. That night shot, with all the lighting sources (including the moon lit clouds and the fore and rear lighting on the grass field) is faultless and incredibly difficult to achieve. But you have done it. The second one looks actually better than your very first.Again the natural lighting balance through out is flawless !! No doubt about these would not struggle to find a place between the covers of a magazine. Its like looking at "The British Space Program that should have been after Blue Streak was cancelled ." You have a very real and admirable talent. Well done

The second image blows me away this time. That's just plan real. Again, NASA in a few years time. Incredible.

Thank you again folks. The night shot was funnily enough one I had in my mind's eye when I first started this project and unusually ended up exactly how I envisioned it. Can't take all the credit though as, purely by chance, an excellent shot of the shuttle Endeavour recently rolled out at night provided the main background. The model was lit by manually firing the flashgun around the base of the model whilst the camera aperture was held open.

Apart from doing a couple of the spaceplane in orbit I think these are about it.

The last one shows a phenomenum known as the "Prandtl-Glauert (P-G) Cloud and Prandlt-Glauert Singularity phenemona" (yes, I had to look that on Google) . In otherwords a condensation shock wave.

Excellent work Keith. I'm sure it's not the easiest of jobs trying to sell the scale in these shots - but you've pulled it off brilliantly..

So many talents on this board who, given half a chance, would make excellent FX designers or techs. Well done, saturnapollo - stirring imagery

Its pity you are six months too early ( or is that too late?) with these.They would have made an excellent April 1st spoof if they had sent been sent around the net and newsagencies- "Secret space programme uncovered!!" They would take alot of people in!!

Thank you very much again guys.

Just propped an upturned tumbler on the blast deflector through the opening on the pad and balanced the model on that.

Should the White Room still be there for the cargo-shroud version?
As the same tower would be used for stacking both versions, the White Room is just left in the retracted position for the unmanned variant. Same as Skylab actually.

Somehow I had completely missed this thread until this evening.
This is absolutely fantastic work Keith.
I can't work out what is real, model or cgi.
Superb
