Default Terrahawks - Zeroids and Cubes

anyone got any info/pictures on the construction of the zeroids or cubes
they could possibly share ?

in case anyone interested I do have the original blue die-lined blueprints
from anderburr pictures for the main craft (not spacehawk - dont think blueprints were done for this) if anyone needs a copy for reference (though i will need to get them out of storage), from memory def have battlehawk, terrahawk, hawkwing, and fairly sure treehawk.

anyone fancy making me a studio sized battlehawk ??

Can't say that I've ever seen any articles or quality drawings of the Zeriods, the originals often appear at Fanderson conventions though.
The blueprints you mentioned are not too accurate to the finished models, you should be careful if you ever use them to construct replicas. From memory I think only the Hawkwing is reasonably accurate, the Treehawk is not too bad but has a couple of basic errors. Gives you a useful starting point though.

thanks for tips.

I just read on your site about the blueprints not being too accurate !

like you say , will give a starting point. i will never be able to do anything
that looks as good as your stuff or indeed that of the rest of the modellers on this site, but as long as it looks reasonably right to me and the "casual" looker I will be happy.

Default help needed

Thanks for the pic of the cube from terrahawks. I build rubiks cube modifications that resemble (although not perfect copies of) various things. My mods have to be fully functional, though. I have built a borg cube (star trek)



and a tardis cube



for my sci fi mods, as well as a tactile cube, lego cube and siamese cube. I would like to do a terrahawks cube, but need pics of each face. Anyone help?

You can see the hole where the explosion effects used to come out of...

suppose you could use it as a fancy light or trash can lol

it appears to be made from fibreglass

Age9000, thanks for the pic of the terrahawks cube on the forum. I'm trying desperately to find a pic of every face of the cube. Any chance you could up pics of them?

Cheers.

I'm not age9000, but here you go. The markings are actually cut out paper stuck on to the cube. The cube is about 200mm and the marking on each face is 132mm sq. The last picture is the top and bottom,they are the same.








Then again, you could just make the small size. 32mm!! Made in the same way with stick on tape but the cube is solid resin. See the episode "The Gun" to see these in action.

Steve Zodiac - You ARE THE MAN!!!

Many thanks. This is exactly what I need. I'll post a pic of the finished Rubiks Terrahawks cube when it's done (week or 2).

I forgot to mention that the cube is rolled to the left at each picture (except the top and bottom of course)

Gotta ask... Which face is opposite the "X" pattern?

I'm not sure... I think that's 5 faces? What's the 6th (or am I wrong)

See above.

Start at top and roll to the left at each picture to get sides in the right order, the last picture is top and bottom face, they are the same.

Ahhh! That explains why there are only 5!

*edit* ... and I've just seen that you've already told me that they are the same

I like the Borg cube - clever idea to do this, was it your own or have you seen it done elsewhere?

I made one about 10 years ago, but it was silver on each face. I gave it to a friend as a birthday prezzie.



The newer one was made because I wanted to be able to create a definitly solveable cube. Painting the faces seemed the logical way.

I don't know whether or not I was the first to create a borg rubiks cube, but I came up with it independently and was the first that I know of to publish the results online.

Here's the reverse:

That Battlehawk behind the cube... is it a modified Bandai toy or an original prop or scratchbuilt? Any more pics? Im trying to modify one from Bandai to make it a bit more accurate, any help is welcome. Thanks in advance.

That's not the Bandai Battlehawk- it's way too big!

Its the small original model hull, with replica wing and undercarriage replacements loosely connected(so that they can be removed if required).

The Art Director Mark Harris stated that the big original was smashed to bits after filming.

I have what may seem like a silly question, why oh why were models destroyed after filming. Sure in the early days, no one thought anything of it as no one realised the potential value of such things, but by the time Terrahawks was made!! They must have known. Gerry espesially would have known, whisc is why the mind boggles that even when Space Precinct was made, models and props were still trashed! Gerry always says he was broke after his divorce-(huh I know that feeling!) when he made terrahawks and up to SP, he must have made a mint if he could trash the models/props!!
