Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - Yellowscale


Motion carried! A MS Paint thread is a great idea and I look forward to reading all of you tips!

Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - Yellowscale


  I was just watching the original STAR WARS: A New Hope and did notice that the "landing struts" are indeed quite noticable when the escape pod is launched.

but when I took another look at your pics with the rocket nozzle I was puzzeled by what the tubes were in the nozzles?

is that how you think the pod is held in place? or it is how it is initially propelled from the parent ship?

damn my confusion and curiousity emoticon

sorry, I'm not sure I understand what you mean by 'tubes in the nozzles'
In the last image, I have not included the greeblies which would be the fuel distribution system, valves and fuel lines.

You will notice that in the side view, the nozzles are not attached to the body of the pod.

Can you please elaborate your question?

thanks.

 I am sorry I have spread my confusion to others emoticon emoticon

 I now see what I thought was a "tube" is just a long nozzle with a step in it

I genuinely believe Uwe Boll could've done a better job with the prequels.

Re: Corellian Corvette Escape Pod - Yellowscale


Luc,
Pop in your copy of Ep4 and cue up timestamps 9 minutes and 15:30 minutes and look at the escape pod.

I have it in the home dvd player so at the moment of typing I don't have it at the ready to make screen caps and uploads.

You'll note that the pod is a two stage rocket. The retro stage at some point jettisons and leaves the cabin module to land. As we see the pod in the sand, with the DVD and the zoom feature, we see that the cabin is alone and that there is no section buried. This is more apparent with the stormtrooper standing behind it at the 15 min. marker.

Take a look.
