Syd Mead and James Cameron USS Sulaco Concept Art!


     A nice selection of concept illustrations of the Colonial Marine Corps starship, USS Sulaco.  I do very much love this design.   Syd Mead designed this vessel with a steer from James Cameron.  Mead's early ilustrations convey a practical and realistic starship design, but Cameron realized that it would be practical for miniature filming.  Cameron created a quick, but very cool design sketch that
helped Mead find the right path to the final design.  Enjoy!

This feels more like a space colony than a starship

This at least has a drive array

The James Cameron sketch that put Syd Mead on the right track

Nearly the final design
