I thought I'd start a thread on the model I'm making, though I feel this will be a long term project. It has turned out to be quite challenging. Below is a picture I scanned of a poster entitled "Terrestrial Voyager" It came from a book of the works of an artist named Rodney Matthews. His website is http://www.rodneymatthews.com/main.htm The image of the "Terrestrial Voyager" I am using came from Rodney's first book published on his art, entitled "In Search Of Forever". See below. I started off by drawing the model with Autocad light and then modifying the design with the aid of paper models. See below.
