Blade Runner Blimp Project

Jason Eaton has been working on a scale model of the advertising blimp from the movie Blade Runner. According to what he wrote in his blog, work on it has been progressing nicely. He has the bodies built with armatures installed and is currently sanding and puttying the seams smooth. He's also been working closely with Lightbenders on an amazing light rig that will feature some killer electronic bells and whistles. And a custom searchlight is being created for the project – each blimp has four roving searchlights underneath controlled by motors!

Below are some videos showing some of its exciting features!
