Spacecraft Discovery by Trekkie5000 Spacecraft Discovery by Trekkie5000
The spaceship seen in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. I'm afraid I can't take full credit for this model, I imported a 3DS Max model by Matthew Parker, and then worked out all the artifacts and re-assigned all the meshes to make it work in Blender. However, don't think that it took five minutes; I spent a good five or six hours on this baby. UV-mapping most of the textures, re-aligning the pod bay doors and eliminating thousands of triangles and double vertices. It was a bitch of a job, but well worth it.

Not to mention that the Discovery is FUCKING COOL!!!

It would be so lovely if somebody modeled the version from the book. I always liked the book version more- but I don't know if that stems more from the fact it would be more likely to work (the movie version lacks radiators, so the crew wouldn't live long), or that it looks better.
