Here's the ship that the UG3 team get around in. It's about 2 1/2 long and about 2 feet tall. Here are construction pics.
This is a rough beginning sketch.
Main structure made from Styrofoam and upholstery foam.
Here it is with the cloth covering.
Finished piece for now. There are less "add-ons" than I originally planned, but I might add more before the time to shoot. I'm going to shoot it in stop-motion in front of a green screen then composite it with other elements. I'll post some of that when we get to shooting it.
