Martians Attack SNG Update

I have been thinking of this design for our “Martians Attack SNG” space ship all week. Since we are changing everything about the old Mars attacks and doing our own design I wasn’t going to do a traditional saucer.
I need to do a 3 view still. The bottom is similar shaped with a concave in the middle and the engines that drive here. So much to do still but I hope to start framing up this bad boy later next week. All styrene and made to look like brass. I will have to build a CGI version too for shots of the ship in space that might be a bit tricky to do CGI alone.
There will be no molds and this is going to be a big model and you’ll be able to see the Martians inside those big glowing eyes! This model will be a one off.
Even though the film is a comedy, it’s going to be dark and creepy. Like a nightmare. Thanks again to Bill and Heidi Hughes for the great script.
More to come! And as Gary Hughes says, “Watch the Skies!”

    That’s awesome, Steve. The top is a bit reminiscent of the Nautilus from 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. 🙂

    Steve, I’m always behind you 100%, but I have to tell you that this is wrong. Combining Steampunk (Victoria era Tech) and Mars Attacks… Future, aliens… Advanced civilizations… I think that is a bad mix. The Generic 50’s B movie Saucer is almost a must. Sorry, but I have to be honest. Unless of course you are taking the whole thing Steampunk, that would be different, though not necessarily better. Good luck, no matter what.

    Steve Interesting direction you are going, a couple of years ago I designed some saucers for a model company this is one of the ones they didn’t pick, I think with some steampunk establishments it could work for your project, I had another idea I will draw it up later and send it. also I found this picture of a 19th century driving suit, I think the chest and shoulder structures could work for your Martian suit and just the general look and detail.

    One thing you all need to keep in mind is, you haven’t read the script, and you won’t because it would give away the movie and it’s surprises. So making judgements based on lack of good Intel may lead you astray. 😉

    Steve Here’s the other design I was thinking of, tons of detail opportunity between the fins. The over all shape is reminiscent of the original Mars Attack ship. Just food for thought. Raul
