Thanks for the feedback!  I think the only build-up of this ship I've seen was the one done for the box photos, so wasn't sure how taking it in a totally different direction would go over with others.

Cerebus, I'm looking forward to seeing that Martian war machine.  I've got one, but haven't cracked it open yet.  I also picked up one of those Martian tripods that Moebius put out from the Spielberg version.  Although I liked the FX of that film, it wasn't nearly as satisfying as the George Pal movie IMO.  I've thought about painting it up with a "steampunk" scheme and altering the base to create a Victorian era setting, in keeping with the novel.  Not sure what the next project will be.  At the moment, I'm leaning toward the resin kit from George Melies' A TRIP TO THE MOON.

I want to get the Tripod, too. The Steampunk theme sounds great. I loved the fx in the new one but also liked the story enough to own the DVD. Naturally, it was tripods in the original H.G. Wells story so that is part of why I like it so much. But nothing beats the 50s sci-fi flicks. Have you seen 'WotW, The True Story'? I haven't seen it yet but heard good things about it. I'm thinking about putting the 50s saucer version and the tripod in the same diorama. I do have a few projects before it so I have time to develop my ideas.:)

I reviewed that film for the upcoming October issue of The Phantom of the Movies' VideoScope and really enjoyed it. There's a cool little featurette on the special effects on the DVD, too.

Wow, I've not heard of WAR OF THE WORLDS: THE TRUE STORY!!!  Thanks for the heads-up.  Also looking forward to that issue of Videoscope.  Both look incredible.  (Just dropped by the film's website to watch the promo...think I need to grab that DVD.)

There was a book called War of the Worlds: Global Dispatches, in which several authors (including Kevin J. Anderson) each wrote a chapter as if they were a famous historical figure of the day who had witnessed the Martian invasion.  Anderson had, at one time, announced he was doing a book called Mr. Wells and the Martians, which ultimately became The Martian War: A Thrilling Eyewitness Account of the Invasion as Reported by Mr. H.G. Wells, which Anderson wrote under the pen name Gabriel Mesta (although a new edition has recently come out under the author's own name).

In high school, while doing student films and attending an animation workshop, I thought it would be neat to do an animated version of the tale, using only the Orson Welles radio broadcast as the soundtrack.  A bit too ambitious for the resources available to me at the time, but I still like the idea.
