    For all of you who are old enough (and yes, by me posting this, I obviously have dated my self :rolleyes:) to remember the TV show from the 70's "Jason of Star Command".
    I found this diagram and was wondering if some one wanted to tackle this wonderful blast from the past?
    I tried to find line drawings but could not.:mad:

    Either way, thank you and for the one that desides to take this and run with it, good luck. I look forward to seeing the build thread.

    I totally remember that show.

    And it doesn't look like the model would be that hard to develop.

    No, TC, you are not going crazy.sign1 The nose of the Seeker was recycled from ARK II.
    I am impressed by your memory:inw:

    Also "Jason of Star Command" was a companion show of "Space Acadamy".

    Here are two more reference pic's. Unfortunately they are not that big, but as you can see, one does have interior view (for those of you who want to "DETAIL" it out.).

    I hope these will help.

    sign1 I just remember the show from when I was a kid and have a few references of the ARK II i was planning on designing at some point, however, the design is a little ways down on my to-do list, so no holding of breaths... :oops:

    How about the Starfire from Jason of Star Command as well? The Seeker and the Starfire had the same interior. And as long as I'm being greedy, Peepos??

    I remember this show vaguely......although looking at the first pic, I was suddenly reminded of the V shuttles

    It does have a "V" vibe. I don't know which came first but I'd bet one influenced the other.

    Space Academy was first. Then Jason, then V

    That's what I suspected. This probably influenced the V craft.

    Actually, Ark II was before Space Academy, and the Ark looked to be a precursor to the seeker.

    Armorman, you are correct, according to my DVDs, they used the nose of Arch II for the Seeker for budgetary reasons.

    I keep getting amazed at the amount of work some peopel have done on the ships and hardware from so many sci-fi shows. I love 'em all!
