1/10th Studio Scale 2001: A Space Odyssey Discovery Model!

We thought we had seen the ultimate 2001: A Space Odyssey Discovery model with the Moebius kit, but here’s an upcoming model kit that takes things up a notch. This is a prototype 1/10th studio scale model of the Discovery from Kaiyodo, with an insane amount of detail that we can’t wait to build!

  1. Great interview. The passion and excitement are infectious.

    At 3:32 you guys talk about getting an extreme close-up shot of the model, and the results aren’t bad at all. I’m sure you’re probably on a Canon zoom or equivalent for all the interview stuff, just for versatility.

    However, you could pack an additional Sony alpha series mirrorless camera (e.g., a7S II) with something like a Zeiss Milvus 50mm Macro (2/50M) lens for those insane close-up shots, to really capture the detail of these models and miniatures. The f/2 max. aperture is reasonably fast for some of these relatively low light Conditions (pun intended), and I think close focus is under 10″ (yeah, I know it doesn’t have autofocus, but any competent shooter can manage critical on a few insert shots). There are also solid options from Canon and Tokina.
