    Good stuff Turgenev.
    I smiled when I read the description... it's a prison transport, but apparantly it transports "passengers"

    Lovely design, Turgenev. As a Trekkie in continual relapse and recovery, I have always enjoyed looking at sumptuous designs such as this with a caring attention to detail (I always seem to look for the dunnies in starship design.)

    On a side note, and I'm not sure if this would interest you at all, but there's a site called www.projectrho.com (I think), and this guy (uber-nerd x 10 to the power of 25) has this excellent section called 'So You Want To Build And Atomic Rocket?' and there are chapters and chapters of resources with regard to building a 'working' spaceship. Just thought if you were looking to step it up a notch, that site could be a real eye-opener

    I'm using the term of passengers to mean not the regular crew. Besides, the prisoners are passengers - unwilling passengers perhaps but passengers all the same.

    I'm going to edit that entry because I forgot to put the phrase (Prisoners) after the Passenger numbers.
    Cheers,

    That's serendipity for you. I had just discovered that link about a hour before you posted. LOL! I did a google search for the moon rocket from the Tintin books and I found the site that way. That is a great link and I was going to post it in the General Discussion section for all to see. I also got some nice pics of the rocket in question. I'm very tempted to do a retro Sci-Fi Rocket design.

    Like one of those old Flash Gordon rockets with the fins n stuff? That'd be cool.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.

    DUDE
    This is really awesome
    Reminds me of metroid-style ship maps I used to draw (of course they weren't as good)

    Thanks ironmetal250. I have to admit that I find your avatar slightly disturbing. I'm not sure if it is the various colours or because its a dancing gojira.
