ACCD Vehicle Demo

Last year Mark Goerner invited me down to do a show and tell for his Advanced Entertainment class at Art Center. At the time most of my professional work was under NDA but I still wanted to show something current. Over the course of a week I put together the presentation. Within that week I also built a practical model to demonstrate the value of working a design problem a number of ways. I received a ton of help with the model from IMD's model department - most of them ex-Star Wars guys. Recently I added a few tweaks to the design – mostly a slight redesign of the cockpit canopy breakup and working out an interesting landing gear assembly which reminds me of the hanging legs of a mud wasp. I had a blast doing the talk. Thanks for invite Mark!
