First of all, thanks for all your kind comments, Guys! :)

Finally managed to push real life out of the way and do some more detail to this. Notably stage 3 and stage 4 crew module and the central core access tube.
Still lots to do!

Not sure why some of those have come up twice. Sorry!

Glad your still on it RedTed and nice to see she is coming on a treat. Will you be rigging those legs and ladder.

Rigel 9th Nov 2018 07:26 AM

Lovely work!

I'll rig the ladder and the main lower airlock hatch but probably not the legs as there was no reference in the film of that and I don't have a clue how they folded up! The MAV takes off and leaves that lower module behind.

Cant wait to see her all textured up.

Added a few decals to the 1st and 2nd stages.
Plus I thought I would start to show the MAV in a Marsy setting (The much-used Wadi Rum in Jordan)

It looks mav-ellous!


John Marchant 14th Nov 2018 04:08 PM

Love the Wadi Rum setting

John Marchant 27th Nov 2018 05:44 AM

Did you finish her then. Can we see some final renders.

RedTed 29th Nov 2018 04:11 PM

Got a few minor details to add then I will be doing another animation probably of the MAV launching.

John Marchant 30th Nov 2018 05:46 AM

Cant wait to see it mate.

Thanks All!

This is pretty much finished now, having done more detailing and panel texturing.
Now I'll see if I have time to do a launch animation and docking with the "Hermes", which was never shown in the film.
