Re: New Model of 1701

That's awesome, thanks. I also found that Trekcore has HD screen caps, AND some episodes have the CG Enterprise shots next to HD versions of the old model shots. So, basically, they're the same old shots we've all seen, just higher res & (somewhat) more detail.

Re: New Model of 1701

Another update. I'm starting to add all the markings, textures, etc. Nothing is really 'final' here, but once I get all the parts together then I'll start tweaking them.

BTW, most of these marking are from the Photoshop/Illustrator files I made years ago when I built this in Alias. My research was pretty solid back then & all my markings seem to be holding up. Fun fact: when I built my 22" Cutaway model (in a not-cutaway-configration) I printed my own decals using these same markings.

Re: New Model of 1701

Update time. I made some pretty good progress this week. I have most of the graphics on (but none of the weathering, yet). And, I started tackling the Bussard Collectors -- or, "power domes" if you're old school.

Having done this before in Alias, I know it's a tricky thing to make the domes look right. They're not done, but I think I've got a handle on how to dial them in.

As always, any comments, nitpicks, etc. are welcome!

Re: New Model of 1701

Happy Halloween! (And, another update.)

I started weathering her & I've been working on the Bussard Collectors. I also noticed the registry & grid lines on the upper saucer are a little out-of-whack. I need to take another look at those graphics.

Thoughts?
