Spaceplane - 3D model

Brief:
Design a spaceship/aeroplane hybrid, to be used in a science fiction comic book.

Realisation:
The first concepts for this Spaceplane were actually scetched on paper, in 1993.
The design was improved upon after feedback from Alfons Mayer, who was studying Aerospace Technology at the TU-Delft at the time, and a 1:200 scale model was made out of cardboard and styrofoam.
A first attempt to create a model with 3D modeling software failed because of the technology available at the time.
The model on display here was created in 2010. For more indepth information click here.
The landscape in the first image contains yet another 3D model: the Transmission tower.
The comic book was never finished.
