This is my Delta Gamma 9, an approximate model of a transport which appeared in Babylon 5.
This is my scratch-built model of the transport Delta Gamma 9. It was the first ship to appear in "Babylon 5" - during the pilot film, the first space scene was the station itself with Londo giving the "Third Age of Mankind" speech, the second space scene was this ship on approach. Here's how the "real" thing looks.
The model flies on a C6-3. Given any wind, it weathercocks, then drifts back towards the launch site. On one occasion I tried angling it with the wind so that it would weathercock towards vertical; it worked, the rocket went up, then drifted a very long way. If the wind had been blowing a different direction the model would have ended up in a field of very long stuff and I'd never have found it. I won't do that again!
