But if you see closeups of the side, you can see BIG brushstrokes in the red stripe, like they painted it with an old stiff brush. Seems an odd thing to do after all that good work.
I recall reading a caption that said the paint still had to be buffed out. The markings look nice and smooth in the latest photos.

Re: Galileo restored!

Re the paint - we duplicated the techniques used on the original. No vinyl labels!! And you're probably seeing a compression artifact, the paint looks great in person.

BTW - if you look carefully at the original Galileo 7 episode - you can see hand prints, paint overspray, and other paint issues. Heck, if you look at the impulse deck carefully you can see the reflection of the crew and the camera shooting the scene. We didn't restore the hand prints, or the "scorch marks" from the bad landing, or the dirt on the nacelles.

Great article with many pictures in the Houston Chronicle: http://www.chron.com/news/houston-te...280.php#src=fb

Thanks for all the appreciation. She is being trucked starting TODAY to Houston and if anyone sees her on the road a photo would be appreciated!

Re: Galileo restored!

It's great to see Galileo in such beautiful condition.

I'm wondering, though, how much of the original is left in the restored ship and what's being done with the unused original parts? I'm sure a lot of fans would be happy to have a small piece of the original shuttlecraft.

When Star Trek TOS was being produced, the Galileo only had to look good on film -- which was typically being viewed on CRT television screens with 525-line resolution. Now she's being seen up close with every detail visible. I'm sure the old girl is looking better now than she ever did back in the Sixties.

Ah, the Ship of Theseus paradox. It's been mentioned here before.

As I understand it, pretty much the entire outer skin of plywood and masonite was too rotted to be salvageable and had to be replaced. The inner steel frame, nacelles, wings, pylons and landing gear are all original.

So, since steel is heavier than wood, if you measure by weight, the ship is probably still more than 50% original material.

Beautiful, museum quality work--it deserves its place right next to the Enterprise miniature at the Smithsonian.

Cool, and "Galileo Seven" is on TV tonight on MeTV. I don't remember watching this episode.

Re: Galileo restored!

Well I really enjoyed seeing Galileo Seven last night because of this thread. I am surprised someone didn't get hurt on the set with those large spears being thrown around.
