Jinxian Lander (Ringworld) by Rob-Caswell Jinxian Lander (Ringworld) by Rob-Caswell
This is an old drawing of mine - from about the time I started work in the RPG illustration field. It depicts an interpretation of the Jinxian lander used by Louis Wu and Chmee in the Ringwrold sequel, "Ringworld Engineers". I'm posting this because a few old friends were asking me to. I'll be the first to admit it's got a few accuracy problems - main one being it's too tall and skinny. But it still works as an interesting image, plus it shows a key transition point in my illutsration style, converting many of my mechanical drafting skills into a more stylized approach.

This was pen and ink on nasty (tm) paper.

I'm almost certain I've seen this in some SF RPG manual or another...

Yep - GDW decided to buy the piece and have me tweak it for use in 2300 AD.

Aha! That's it, clearly. Also, I'll use this opportunity to say that I really like the Sung city pic.

Ah! Now I understand what that circle top left is!

D'oh! >_<

Also....what would the internal arraignments be...IF that is a really big rocket nozzle pointing out the side?

Very much cheers to you and yours.

I have no recollection of how I envisioned the internal layout.... but I am thinking of trying another pass at an ACCURATE lander.... soon, I hope.
