Default 2010 Discovery Studio Model Images

I wrote to Richard Edlund who did the model work for 2010,in the quest for better images as to the detailing on the Discovery,i am fully aware the original from 2001,was distroyed,so i thought it was worth a try.

In answer to my e-mail from Gene Kozicki he has gave me some details regarding the 2010 model and images as well

as its directed at model builders i am posting the images here for all to see


























these images were as the original studio model was being restored for Profiles in History auction

My thanks to Gene Kozick and all images are copyright Gene Kozicki, Richard Edlund Films.

Richard Edlund did impressive work on 2010 (1984 movie) considering, as you stated, that Stanley Kubrick had all of the models (& blueprints) and , of course, sets(& blueprints) destroyed after 2001 (1968 movie) was completed. I believe Stanley Kubrick did this to prevent a sequel or any reuse in other movies or TV Series.

Director Peter Hyams and Richard Edlund beat that hurdle.

Yes. The pics were posted (or linked to) on another thread somewhere around here. (Sorry, I haven't time to hunt it down.)

There's no reason whatsoever to believe all the 2001 stuff was destroyed at all. As with the Anderson srtuff of the period all these things were generally considered to be a means to an end and them dumped. You can be CERTAIN that MANY MANY artifacts still exist....indeed they keep popping up from time to time and will continue to do so as their current owners find out they have something of value to others.
I've EVERY reason to think that the 11 / 12 foot Discovery from 2001 is still around....just waiting for the chance to see it and take pics.....then GET IT OF COURSE.....hmmmm.....it's what I do!...LOL!

PS A 2001 EVA podmodel also found it's way onto the tip.....someone somewhere MUST still have that!

Direct quote from 2001 Filming the Future book
page 112 `The main Discovery Spacecraft was 54 ft long with a command module sphere about 6ft in diameter`

I'm referring to 2001 and think Filming the Future is wrong......but then I wasn't there, but neither was Piers and in my experience contempoary interviews with people who are now quite aged can throw up anachronisms like this or his info could have been lifted from another inaccurate source......maybe someone else here has some better knowledge.
In any event 54 foot is way unnecessary.....the 6 foot sphere would be the size of the full size EVA POD

The chances are, they used the same basic sphere moulding for both the one man pods and Discovery CM.
