    Hello all.

    Was flicking through juicy sci-fi magazine Deathray the other day and noticed a lovely 2 page spread on Bill Pearson’s model work for Duncan Jones’ film ‘Moon’.

    Firstly, it looks absolutely amaaaaazing.

    Secondly, he tells us that the moon shuttle used in the film is actually constructed from a model he built for the….wait for it.

    RED DWARF MOVIE.

    How far into production did this thing go, for God’s sake?

    Completely forgot to mention this yesterday, but Bill was also interviewed for this new SpFX documentary, called ‘Alien Makers’.

    Anyone know if this is Bill’s RD Movie/Moon shuttle..?

    EDIT:

    Ah, I think THIS might be it. Either way, the model work for Moon looks fantastic.

    That’s the one. Nice to see it made it to the big screen eventually.

    Nice article.

    Apparently Bill made quite a bit of stuff for the RD movie.

    Would be nice to see it some time.

    Some rather impressive models built for one of the many false-starting Red Dwarf movies were being cannibalised to provide detailing for Moon’s lunar mining facility.

    Moon is awesome and everyone should watch it.
