What makes Peter Elson and Chris Moore’s work very interesting is the fact that they have not just created the appropriate sense of scale, drama and adventure in the tradition of Chris Foss, but have added a new element – they have introduced a new sophisticated design and style to the space ships they create. We have a situation now where space ships no longer look as if they were assembled from a collection of city suburbs and petrol refineries but many could have originated in the design offices of Seattle or Detroit.
