Above is a wire frame side view of the Pagnew time-traveling vessel, rendered in 1990 by 3D computer software available at the time.
Above is a top view of the Pagnew (again in wire frame) by 3D software from 1990 (the odd stains or wrinkles and such stem from aging of the original print-outs).
A 3D view of one of the Pagnew's flying remotes (roughly the size of a 20th century car). You didn't ride inside it, but stood on (or sat upon) the slanted platform encircling the thing. Nearer the top was something like a handrail. However, as riders were either androids or crew members wearing fourth skins, these weird accommodations didn't cause much problem. For either the androids or the fourth skins easily stayed attached to the remote during transport, in one fashion or another.
Above can be seen an angled top view in 3D of the Pagnew.
Above can be seen an angled bottom view in 3D of the Pagnew.
