    Wasn't someone working on a paper model of the Nebuchadnezzar hovercraft from the Matrix? I seem to remember something about it from a year or two ago. Maybe on the old SmartGroups website. Does anyone else remember anything about it. I had a friend ask me about a model this weekend. I don't remember seeing a plastic or resin kit of it.

    Howdy Tom,

    This is a ship that I've been interested in since I saw the movie years ago. I'd like to say I'll do it,but don't want to dissapoint you again like I did with the WarHawk. Although I have sent an email to Alfred asking if he could help with reference for it. ;)

    If no-one attempts it by the time I'm done with what I have on now, I'll have a go. Just don't know when that'll be.

    Skip

    Found his 3' version too. I know this isn't paper, but it is relevant to this topic. Starship Modeler: Gallery (Vehicles & Vessels)

    I've also contacted him to see if he'd helpwith reference for a future paper project. See what happens eh?

    Good news. The guy who built the two models linked above has shared his reference with me. Not all of what he had but enough for basic plans to start a model.

    Screen captures willtake care of the rest.

    I'll add this to my list for next year.

    How big would you guys want it to be?

    Cool, well I'll carry on gathering reference for it on the quiet. Then make a start when I get the time. :)
