Re: Speaking of models, here's another kitbash

Forbin: I have (an admittedly silly) question:

How do you manage to cut into the little saucer parts to insert the nacelle pylons? That looks like really delicate work. Is it difficult?

I actually cut the pylons, not saucer. I just had to do some filling with putty on the bottom of the notches because of the aerodynamic recess under the saucer.

Re: Speaking of models, here's another kitbash

I looked up the Modular Models web site to see what else they have, and I'm a little bothered by the fact that they entirely credit Jackill for the container pods, and don't mention Franz Joseph at all.

Re: Speaking of models, here's another kitbash

I based the Container system on the Jackill designs because he has more options for end caps and the cargo bay doors than the original Franz Joseph designs. It all kind of rounds out though, as the basic container Jackill has listed is based on FJ.

I know there are a lot of people who rank FJ right up there with Roddenberry and Jeffries, but bottom line is that he did very little for fan-based designs aside from getting the ball rolling. It's games like Star Fleet Battles and guys like Vance and Jackill who have really pushed fanon designs forward.

It would be nice if that were mentioned somewhere. Anyone who doesn't already know that would come away from your website thinking Jackill invented the whole thing.

Re: Speaking of models, here's another kitbash

I really like this design, but IDK about the nacelles being so short/stubby... to my own eyes, IDK if it works as well as it was intended to, but that's just my own opinion. That little shuttle is a REALLY tight fit for the bay, too, lol, but it looks nice. And now, the impending question... where's the sensor dish?

Re: Speaking of models, here's another kitbash

Looks great, Forbin. And having the pylons connect to the saucer means the their support beams inside don't take up space in the shuttlebay, etc.

Re: Speaking of models, here's another kitbash

Anyone: where do you think the warp drive engine room should be housed aboard the Starship Minmus? I'm thinking it should be separate from the impulse engine room, maybe warp engineering would be located in the lower saucer vortex...

And the more I look at the Minmus, the more I think it would look great with little mini-dishes on the front-ends of those small pods above the saucer.

Nice looking model! Was Masao the first to create that hangar deck on the back of the saucer like that on a TOS design? I really like that feature.
I doubt I was the first, but when I drew one on a ship I probably thought I was.

But then whenever you fired the megaphasers the dishes would blow up.

Well, that's assuming those pods were actually megaphasers (whatever they are).
