The Orion III is used to transport Dr. Heywood Floyd from Earth to the orbital space-station, in the film version of Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey.
I’m not quite satisfied with the shape, though. Especially the engine cowling.
Someday, with enough money to buy the pieces, I shall tackle this build on a much larger scale and with Pam Am decals :) !
In the meantime, I hope you like this nano-scale build.
Your comments and suggestions are welcome, as always!
Hello Misa! I can't wait to see what you can do with the Orion III! Unfortunately, I'd worked with whatever I could find on the internet.
The closest thing to blueprints I know are those in the book 2001: The Lost Science. I don't have that, unfortunately.
And here's a pretty decent LEGO attempt: https://hiveminer.com/Tags/lego,odyssey/Interesting

I've been looking for some good reference or even blueprints for the Orion III, have you had any luck?
