Re: Scaling the Excelsior Filming Model

Of course! Here is the thread and where it starts to get interesting http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=34793&page=10

It goes without saying that I'm taking the scale of the Hangar Deck (and the accompanying shuttlecraft) as intended, hence the 122' length. I'm also assuming that the support structure for the pylons continue through the secondary hull, instead of the "glued on pylons" approach that seems to be the case for many deck plans - although I can see the attraction for this: be it from magic glue or just really advanced 23rd Century engineering techniques, this latter approach certainly frees up interior space - hence Blsswlf's 1084' length ship complete with a completely show-accurate shuttlebay: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.ph...25#post8645425
