No more clues. Just a preliminary work on the table.

An interplanetary transport with a deployable shield for aerobraking? Yes, I like it.

It's not an aerobraking shield.

Looks kinda like the Icarus craft from the movie Sunshine to me. And also looks well-made, I might add.

Is it a sun shield? If yes, then the ship can't come too close...

I doubt it but is it a giant satelite dish?

I'm assuming that when we travel around the solar system for months or years, we need a shield to avoid sun radiation. This design is based on spaceship Antares, from "Defying gravity" TV show, but I must say it won't be the same ship, just a derived one.

State of the art:



I promise this time will be rotating module animations and --maybe-- also an antenna alineation mechanism.

It looks a lot like the Pegasus from Voyage to the Planets, too.

It will, Antares and Pegasus are the same ship. The TV show didn't have the budget for a different design.

That explains it. I never watched Defying Gravity, so that would be why.

I'm thrilled to see a well-made Pegasus-based ship, though. The last one was...
lacking
.

The fact that this is a derived work (and by the guy who made Longshot) makes it better.

Today's progress: some work on cabin and space viewpoint.



Do not expect to have this ship ready for some weeks. It's an exhausting work!

Looks like Perseus... with a superstructure behind it.
