Left off the most important picture... the crew!

Is it an illusion or are these guys REALLY short, lol. It seems that both Scotty and Spock had to lean over to access the rear hatch.

Awesome update and photos; looking forward to seeing her restored to her former glory!!!

Re: Galileo Restoration Update - March 2013

Are you taking any video recordings of some of the work activity? If you can, do it... it'll be great stuff to reflect on once the Galileo is complete.

Btw, what's planned for the doors? Will they be mechanized in the same way as demonstrated on the series? Or kept to a minimum on functionality for cost purposes?

Re: Galileo Restoration Update - March 2013

Are you getting any help from TPTB, with logos, colours, insider info from the people who originally built it?
What are you going to do about the inside and those groovy chairs?
Anyway great work - can't wait to see the finished ship.

Thanks for the post & link, but the video really doesn't show much of the current state or rebuilding progression. Nice video, though.

The angle of one of the cables is off several degrees from the original!!

J/K...great job!

Do you know if the metal "step" on the front of the nacelle folds shut or is it permanently locked open?
