TSTO Spaceplanes - concept
technical illustration
These images were created for an extensive article about two stage to orbit spaceplanes. The article covers a lot of configuration between various systems, most of them were created based on the drawings of a Boeing patent. You can read more and access more images in context in the robotpig.net article.
Starting from the patent's planviews and diagrams we created the 3D models and the internal basic systems. The internals were used in various ghost/cutaway views to explain the system's functionality.
