Would there be a seaQuest DSV out there anywhere?

    It's a nice ship (which, frankly, doesn't look very compatible with paper, due to all the curves), and I wonder if it's available as a paper kit somewhere.

    I've not seen any models of a SeaQuest DSV. And yes, with all those compound curves, the thing would be a "challenge" to design and build, but then again, there are some talented people around here who come up with stuff you'd never think possible.

    Seaquest???

    I've asked before and no one's aware of the main ship, not the shuttles, ocean transport, skiff, subfighter, seacrab, virtual reality probe, WHISKERs, or any other related craft.



    You might say;

    We're Seaquestless!

    I've seen a seaquest 3d model on Google's 3d Warehouse.

    Hope you have better luck than me, jgderuvo. I tried google and I couldn't find it anywhere.

    Thanks, Billy. :thumb: I may download those and see what I can do with them. Probably nothing much right now because of college (as a matter of fact, I'm *supposed* to be working on a research paper right now :mrgreen: ), but maybe eventually I'll get to that.

    I would be very interested in a model of the sub as well.

    Who should we thank more???

    Not sure who's deserving the most credit!

    Billy for finding the foundation, or Millenniumfalsehood for offering to make real what has been , to this point, a futile hope!


    In any case, much thanks to both of you!

    Hi!
    There was a very good mesh at Scifi-meshes.com! (is no more available!)
    the mesh was in Blender format and a friend of me convert it to Metaseq! But now it has many errors and the texture is lostwall1!

    Greetings

    The textures would be very simple for this ship: just basically mottled blue/turquoise and some glowing triangles for the windows.

    I'd be glad to do this one, DC. :thumb: A friend loaned me his copy of the first season of SQ and I am officially hooked! I love how the plots are centered around actual scientific discoveries instead of the usual Star Trek technobabble-of-the-week deus ex machina plots. Some of it stretches credibility, but overall it's a fine show! :mrgreen:

    I think this model deserves to be about three or four feet in length, with complete shuttlebays, WSKRs, HR Probes, and submersibles. At that size, one can get nice and detailed with the ship and the curved parts (come to think of it, there are no straight edges, so I should say 'the whole ship') would be -much- easier to construct.

    :mrgreen:And don't forget the womens' shower! A big set inclusion in the second season, where several episodes visited. I understand it was demanded by the producers!

    [maybe the only thing I want to remember about the second season...]

    ps. Let me know If I can furnish some images for detail.

    pss. And after struggling through the seacond seaon, don't dispair; the third season is worth the wait for the release of the dvd set!
