Futurama Ship Looks Like CGI, Is Actually Real Model

Harrison Krix is a guy who we normally post about for his props work, recreating famous video game weapons, but this piece is a little different.

He's recreated the Planet Express ship from Futurama. And has done it in such excruciating detail that the pictures of the final product look more like a CG render from the show than some homemade model a guy made in his workshop.

Krix has written up a huge worklog for the ship on his site; if you want to see how the magic was made, it's a good read.
