Re: Blssdwlf's TOS and TOS Movie Era ships

Thanks JES

I was thinking on the same lines about the vertical pylons. This revised WIP is using the same neck as the one on my Enterprise but straightened. A small cigar hull is used to connect the vertical pylon with the horizontal warp pylons. And now I've matched the nacelle orientations as well.

Re: Blssdwlf's TOS and TOS Movie Era ships

These are really great TOS interpretations. Interesting to see something more than FJ-style re-arrangements of TOS parts (although that's good, too). I really like this work.

As I'm seeing this TOS and pre-TOS work, I'd love to see some of Sternbach's Spaceflight Chronology work get similar treatment to what I'm seeing here. My pipedream, I suppose.

Thanks SchwEnt If I see anything of interest in the SC I might take a shot at it.

And an experiment in the 3-engined Dreadnaught/Dreadnought

It's meant to be a precursor to the Excelsior.

Re: Blssdwlf's TOS and TOS Movie Era ships

I like the pylons on this version of a otherwise typical 3 nacelled TOS era design

Seeing your work and your interpretations, I was thinking you could do some great things with the Horizon, the Tritium, the Baton Rouge (if you're familiar with those).

Those SFC ships seem to be amenable to your TOS stylings.

Actually, when I suggested to use interconnections similar to the neck of most contemporary ships, I meant that it should have slanted angles, similar to how the Federation class's third nacelle mounting.

I'm liking what I'm seeing here; like Kaiser said, the bent pylons are a nice touch to distinguish her from the Federation class. I'd still make the forward and aft angles for the third nacelle pylon similar to the Federation's. Otherwise, you have an excellent start here too.

Re: Blssdwlf's TOS and TOS Movie Era ships

@JES - Thanks I will however keep these versions with perpendicular or non-angled pylons as it's another design cue that reminds me of the TOS Enterprise. When viewed as a silhouette it makes it easier for me to pick out something TOS-like vs a later movie build with the angled back warp pylons.

@SchwEnt - Hmm, I'll google Horizon, the Tritium, the Baton Rouge and take a look...

edit - after looking these models over, I probably won't try anything with those, at least not until I get a better feel of what pre-TOS looks like (and I'm not thinking the Enterprise TV series.)

Re: Blssdwlf's TOS and TOS Movie Era ships

I agree with the hangar deck. I plan to add one to the Scout and the Destroyer as they're missing one. I'm thinking of a hangar bay with a bottom hatch on the side of the primary hull or lifting the idea of the cool "hangar deck behind the bridge" design that I've seen in Forbin's models.

Flight II of the TOS Scout with a flight deck behind the bridge.

I'll keep the earlier versions with a hangar deck in the primary hull with bomb bay style doors.

*The shuttle in the pic is a 30' shuttle.

I like what you did with the shuttlebays on the reliant-style ship.
