This is a by-request posting. This is a technical drawing of the standard Scout Service enclosed air/raft from the Traveller RPG. The scan is an update of the image that originally appeared in the Digest Group Publications "Grand Survey" product (if I recall). The vehicle is essentially the game world's "Jeep".

Mixed media.

I liked this design so I made a 3d model based off of your sketch. Then I unfolded it and made a papermodel with a number of color variants.
They are here; www.onemonk.com/squirmydad-dl.…

Thanks for making an inspirational piece.

I'm currently working on an open-bed pickup version of this for space rednecks. :)

Would you mind if I borrowed the top-down chair style for some deckplans I am working on?  I love the clean lines and I will just eyeball it, not trace it.  Wow, love the work.

Oh sure, go for it! Thanks for asking.

No problemo!  Have I mentioned all your work rocks?

I remember these! (sort of)

They were a little more obscure/harder to come by. WE didn't get on quite as many shelves as GDW did.

I remember there were several different versions, but it's been a while. I wen't looking for the original publication, and if I remember correctly, all I could find was GDW stuff.

I always preferred the enclosed models.

They made more logical sense.

Such a simple shape that it's tempting to build a 1:24 scale model of it with a complete interior and lighting. :D

It is kinda a brick ;p

Brilliant. You know I may have to borrow some more ideas from you.... maybe make a 3D cutaway model..

Raise your hand if you wanna drive one of these instead of a minivan!

...and you can threaten the kids with "Don't make me put you in the airlock!"

Very nice! :clap: I'm liking the cool functional look. Though now I'm starting to wonder if I'm actually a typical human. :(
