This is something I've noticed just a few minutes ago:

http://www.miketrimart.com/2.html

The site of legendary Mike Trim (the designer of the Fighting and Handling Machine) but I noticed something different below. In the Art gallery, we see the well known blueprints and sketches, but all the way to the bottom, in the lowest row, there are some more sketches of the Fighting and Handling Machine, both I've never seen before... It's s stupid question to ask where they come from (Mike Trim made them) But does anyone has a higher resolution? Or knows if it was used for a book/megazine or anything?

Maybe they are ideas he had - like first drafts before he came up with the current designs?

Probably, but I've never seen them before anywhere, so I was just wandering if someone knows more about this

Sorry, just seen this. Yes, a lot of that is concept stuff. I believe, IIR, that these were necessary as Mr Trim wasn't the only painter on the album, so some reference sketches were made to keep the look right.

Thanks, is there anywhere I/we can see them, I am interested in what kind of pictures were used to paint the paintings on the album. Maybe in one of the War of the Worlds books available on the site or anything? I have the full DVD set, it includes all things you want to know about the live show, but not the original album, and how that was made and everything

When I carried out the interview with Mike Trim in March 2005 (which can be seen on this site), I also spoke of the machine designs. Mike informed me that one design for the facial of the cockpit was for the machine to have a single type screen as apossed to the two large bug eyes we see now. The one shown on Mike's site also shows a a more flatter screen, but seperated in between.

It does, and the overall shape of the hood is very different, interesting to see though how the iconic Fighting Machine came about
