…in space! This enormous long range research vessel was apparently named via a public vote, with ‘Ugly Ducking’ garnering the most support. Unlike a recent public naming poll, the Government decided to honour the outcome, and thus the Ugly Duckling was launched into space.
This amazing creation comes from Blake Foster, and the techniques used throughout it are anything but ugly. With superb photography and lighting it’s one of the most impressive sci-fi builds of the year so far, and there’s loads more to see at the Ugly Duckling’s Flickr album or via MOCpages.
