AllSpark Almanac closer look: The Steelhaven
Enter TransFan Chris 'Kurisama' Vera, a professional 3-D modeler. He wrote to us and asked if there was anything he could do to help. When he told us about his skill set, I asked if he'd be interested in tackling the Steelhaven. He jumped in with gusto! The fruits of his labor are evident for all to see, on pages 154-155 of the new book.
(More trivia - the Steelhaven was completely redesigned for season three. Compare the model of the ship from the first book to the model in the second book. I explained this away, in universe, by referencing a retrofit.)
If you'd like to see the full-resolution ship 'in the buff', completely unadorned with my text and call-outs, head on over to Kurisama's deviant art page. You'll be glad you did. A tip of my hat to this hard-working and talented TransFan.
