Original Syd Mead concept.

Original Syd Mead concept.

This was a bit of a Kitbash illustration taking some parts from my earlier models, re-building some parts in SketchUp based on kits from Nick Govacko's brilliant Z-Brush and some other bit's and bobs.

The wheels are some of my favourite design, based on a concept by Syd Mead for the NASA Vex rover, originally modelled by Bryan K:, I have rebuilt them and put my own spin on them. Apollo Spaceman by Max Gruetur.

Although the shadows should be much harder, I did not want to loose so much of the detail so decided to go for artistic license rather than realism in this case.
