Re: a 198'' model of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-A

FreddyE, us old-timey Americans use one apostrophe as short for "foot" and two for "inch." So a 198' model would be twelve times larger than a 198" model. Easy mistake to make.

Re: a 198'' model of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-A

I'm curious. Why 198" and not 200"?

The studio model was exactly 100" long at 1/120 scale, or 1/10" = 1'.
A 200" model would be exactly twice the studio model's scale at 1/60, or 0.20" (1/5") = 1'.

I was just wondering how you arrived at 198 inches for a size.

Re: a 198'' model of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-A

came to 16.5 feet (198inches) because of the place where Enterprise will be installed. She will go in a 20feet by 10feet train car, another project we have going.

The primary hull of Enterprise served to determine how wide we could go and leave enough room to walk around. At 198inches long, the primary hull comes to 7.92feet (95.02inches)

Also had to do with how small i am comfortable to work at with my equipment vs the details i wanted to include such as figurines and lit consoles.

Good luck trying to mimic the paint job of the TMP Enterprise. It's considered one of the most beautiful and difficult paint jobs in the world of sci-fi.

Yeah I liked the TMP more...

There are all sorts of online stuff about how they painted the design

198 inches is 16 feet and a half

or

502.92 centimeter / 5.029 2 meter


60 meters that would make for one heck of a model!
