My work on TV (BBC 1 tonight, 8:00)

if anyones near the TV at 8:00pm tonight, flick to BBC 1 and watch the 'Ocean Odyssey'. My work is on there, I made the 'Alvin' DSV (deep sea vessel), the 'Trieste' DSV and an ROV too. The series follows the life of a sperm whale and goes to depths beyond what our boats can unless they have a hole :P

I cant wait

That's pretty good going bearing in mind you weren't due to be born for another 16 years when alvin was built.

Sheesh, I did not make the actual Alvin, Although I have been on her, shes handles like a pig. Anyway I made the 3D Models of these vessels, which will be used for animation. I have not seen any of the animations yet but look forward to it. I myself am driving the ferry tonight so I will be setting Mr timer to record.

As for the Pet Rock, I hope it goes well and that the pet rock feels nice and clean after, I would use an old toothbrush just to get in those hard to reach places

I'd have to create them first!

Don't think any 'tech' drawings exist of the 28. It all came straight from Steves head I think. I do have line drawings.

If you pop in I'll show you how quick it is to measure them up.

Why bother with the paper stage?...just roll it over, and go straight on with the wax......like everyone else!
