Gunther sent in a new Excalibur render with some crazy textures. It might look like every other fighter at first, but there are some cool features on closer inspection. The model is well done and some of the original purple highlights are retained. Some kind of mystery material makes up the ship's skin, and it's topped off with some reflective fins and a wacky cockpit dome. It's certainly different!
Here's a render I made from my Excalibur version. Hope you like it!
Paul Smith posted some cool shots of the mission patches from Richard Garriott's trip to space, and here's a snazzy shot of Richard in his flight suit to match.
Richard Garriott, famed video game developer, is following in his father’s footsteps and has launched aboard a Russian Soyuz spacecraft to the International Space Station. Richard’s father Owen Garriott is a former NASA astronaut who completed two space missions during his career. Richard is the the first second generation American in space, and also the sixth private astronaut client of Space Adventures.
