Беспилотные советского разведывательного спутника
Here are some images of my scratchbuilt Unmanned Soviet Recon Probe from the movie 2010 Odyssey Two "The Year We Make Contact". Scale 1" for every 1m.
I built this model based from the old L miller plan drawings from the late 80's
Researching this model was difficult. I could find no usable photos from the Interweb and it is barely visible when it makes its appearance in the film. More silhouette and shadow than anything.
So when it came to colours and markings I was relegated imagination and guess work.
Still I think it turned out pretty well.
A technical error I noticed about this design is that there doesn't appear to be any side thrusters. Oh well it's only a movie.
The stencil work were taken from decals left over from the Testors Mig Ferret kit and a German tank model..
Weight: 6390 lbs
Range: 500,000 MI
Engines: Chemical Rockets
Capable of Planet Fall.
Here are two scenes from 2010 Odyssey Two "The year we make contact".
