Re: Photo request -- Enterprise hangar deck studio miniature

Oh believe me, I will be tweaking this thing right up until the point where I actually need it for filming, so keep the comments coming.
More cream. (Or maybe it's just the lighting. I even think warm, yellow-tinted lights would work just as well.)

One of my biggest complaints regarding the current Enterprise model they're using on "Remastered" is the font used on the saucer registry--it's completely wrong. Typefaces are surpisingly one of the biggest things to make or break a CGI model. Don't believe me? The next time you see a model of a contemporary automobile, look at the license plate.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who notices this.





My question is: What are they using? It isn't even the AMT font. Even Amarillo USAF (which is almost exactly what was used on the model) would be fine.

But, meh.
