Primitive Spaceships by hardbodies Primitive Spaceships by hardbodies
Few spaceships i've drawn when i was watching TV.

The first ship is inspired from the rescue ship "Lewis & Clark" and by an artwork made by Patrick Woodroffe in the 70s.

A magnetic net to capture hydrogen atoms.

The second design looks very interesting! If it's not too much trouble, may I ask for some explanation about it - particularly about the square 'net' that's attached to it and what does it do? Is it a part of the ship's interstellar travelling system? I'm really intrigued. Thank you!

The square net is a magnetic shield to capture hydrogen atoms to use them in the generators ^^ The ship doesn't carry his own "fuel" and capture it on its way.

Very cool, and it does make a lot of sense to be self-sufficient while on a long journey.

Thank you very much! :aww:

Love the futuristic mix with actual technology. JHowever it seems that both shps are from different eras since the ship at the top looks more advance just my perception.

Many people think retro style is cool so it can very well be a good thing. ;)

La TV te donne de l'inspiration en tout cas !
Ces vaisseaux ont une bonne gueule, surtout le premier, qui me fait penser au navette spatiale actuelle (c'est les gros réacteurs).
J'imagine que le second à une fonction particulière vu sa forme.
Beau boulot ! :D

Hmmm, en fait, le premier n'est pas très réaliste. Il a des ailes, il est sans doute fait alors pour faire des vols atmosphériques, mais il est trop gros et lourd pour avoir des trains d'atterrissages, et ses ailes sont alors trop petites... Et en plus, les antennes de communications seraient arrachées :D Donc ça a une certaine gueule mais le design tient pas la route ^^
quand à l'autre, il doit voyager entre deux étoiles, il ne peut pas transporter son carburant, et doit le prendre au fur et à mesure de son voyage. Une sorte de grande grille magnétique à a l'avant capte les atomes d'hydrogène qui sont stockés puis injectés dans les générateurs à fusion.
A l'avant, il y a l'observatoire. L'équipe d'astronomes observe et écoute l'espace.
Devant le stockage d'hydrogène, un bouclier anti radiation et météorite.
Ensuite le quartier d'habitation, qui tourne pour générer une gravité artificielle. Le soucis je crois, c'est que le couple généré par ce gros machin tournant risque de dévier le vaisseau dans le sens opposé de sa rotation... Un bloc d'habitation sur deux est consacré à la production d'eau et de nourriture.
Ensuite, la centrale de communication à l'arrière, avec des antennes pointées vers les stations du système solaire. Ces antennes sont sur des tours qui permettent de dégager les paraboles du flux ionique du réacteur.
A l'arrière, quatre centrales à fusion qui alimentent le vaisseau et le propulseur.
Voilà, c'est comme ça que je vois le premier vaisseau d'exploration habité qui quitterait le système solaire :) Enfin, en gros quoi :D
Toujours est-il que ça donne pas envie d'aller faire un tour avec!! :D

Hé hé, c'est cool, on voit que tu as bien réfléchi à chaque détails, on pourrait même croire que tu bosses pour la NASA tellement ça tient debout.
En tout cas, j'espère que le vaisseau d'exploration à les capacités technologique suffisante pour pouvoir voyager d'un système à un autre rapidement, car l'étoile la plus proche de nous est Proxima Centauri, 270 000 fois la distance entre la Terre et le Soleil, ça doit être sacrement long à parcourir une distance pareil, sauf si il existe un quelconque moyen d'hibernation au alors faut demander à Han Solo et Chewbacca de prêter leur système d'hyper-espace du Faucon Millenium. :D

Enfin bon... sinon, c'est quand même du beau travail ces petits vaisseaux.

Ca va être long, très long :) Le tout est d'avoir une réserve suffisante de films sous la main et de ne pas voyager avec des chiants. Sinon tout le monde se fera la peau avant d'arriver dans le système de Proxima :D

The Lewis and Clark was a cool rescue ship and I remember Ooohing and Ahhing over Patricks work as a kid. I also really like the ships of the old Sci-Fi series UFO and Space 1999. :)

Sorry (as this is unrelated to the deviation). But is your signuture a quote or did you write it yourself, because I think one the best things I have read in quite a while (in short: I love it)

It's a quote from Dr Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.

I love it, umm would you recommend the film mentioned (sorry to press things further than they need be, just dying of boredom and would love something new).

I recommend the film (Johnny Depp plays a wonderful Dr Thompson), the book, and if you can find a copy the spoken word CD.

Yes, i'm always a big fan of the "Eagle" :) Unfortunately, the miniatures are a bit expansive now...

I remember when I was a kid I was given a full size Eagle with all the goodies for Christmas. :D
I loved that toy so much, I cried when I found out the container carrying all our household goods fell off of the ship en route back to the states from Panama.

Yep, the whole cargo container went into the drink somewhere in the Gulf of Mexico and sank.
