Remember those?

That’s my first WIP posting IIRC. So first: Hello all!

I’m not sure how it came, but last saturday I started to model a Tripod from the 80’s BBC series. It used to be my favorite TV show and I didn’t pass one tuesday without watching “The Tripods” which was called “Die Dreibeinigen Herrscher” (which means “the three-legged rulers” here in Germany .

There’s still a lot to do: The bottom side of the tripod is missing, texturing has to be finished and I’ve got to correct some details, how I discovered. It’s hard to see things at the first glimpse - especially when the reference ppictures are so few and poor.

Anyway: C&C are welcome.[/img]

Wow man! this does bring back memeories

But I think you shoudl give us some action shots :slight_smile: this one is nice for a start but don’t capture the essence of a tripod :slight_smile:

Doesn’t it? I’m thinking of getting the DVD of the first season - just for the memories.

I’m still working on the model and there’s still much to do as I mentioned. But I sure will! :slight_smile:

(To the “essence”: Sometimes I even got frightened a bit when the tripods appeared! :wink: )

This indee brings back some memories.

Looking very good. Modelling looks spot on.
