    Hey. I am very interested in trying to model the tripod from wotw to the best of my ability. The problem is there are no references at all. I've searched pretty much everywhere and can't even find a blurry picture. If anybody had any or new where to find them it would be great. This would be a good challenge to see how i compare to the big guys at ilm. If anybody else is interested in trying to model this let me know and post some pics here so we all can see what you are doing. I hope i can start on this soon.

    Thanks!
    JM

    There are no pictures yet. Your best bet would be to wait until the film is released on DVD, then you'll probably have all the reference you could want.

    Best bet now is probably to look for books. There's gotta be some "behind the scenes" or making of books. These are published more for fans than us so they probably won't have specs, wireframes, cross-sections, etc. but there's bound to be some good photos.

    I bet the October Cinefex will have some good photos of them.

    For now, seems your only luck will be with the images from the originial WOTW, from 1953.

    EDIT: Accually, take a look at this:

    If you could find a way of downloading the movie say from a p2p then that would be the best resource you could get hold of at this present time of the latest Tripod's, otherwise it looks like you will have some waiting to do as i have looked everywhere finding no good refrences also.


    If i do however come across something i will post it right away as i am interested to see a good model of the Tripod knowing i do not have enough experience myself.



    good luck

    p2p is an idea. A lot of people got EP3 that way. Most of us are using it for reference and are not involved in selling a 1000 copies on the blackmarket. And I'm sure we'll all buy the DVD too. So lets not condone piracy, lets certainly not make it a topic of discussion here, but lets keep a perspective on it too. Otherwise... this thread is kinda dumb and what's been said is all there really is to say about it. The only reason it wasn't deleted long time ago was b/c a lot of you guys had already put some time into replying and I didn't want to delete your comments.
