Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

Thanks Albertese

Just a couple of things today.

A chart of the evolution of US Submarines I saw while touring one recently: (1.3 MB jpg)

And another view of the flight deck:

Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

That's a shame, I rather liked the (slightly) larger Enterprise from earlier in the thread.

Might I ask what you've discovered / refined in order to arrive at the 1084 figure? I love the little details like that!

Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

I like how you've solved the problem with the "Journey To Babel" scene with Sarek and Company in the blank shuttlebay. Nice! I never thought they could be below the main shuttlebay.

Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

@Mytran - Hmm. Maybe you're thinking of the 1,164' (355m) TMP Enterprise that I was studying with the engineering/cargo bay? The 1,084' (330.4m) TOS Enterprise came about because the sidebays on the flight deck protruded out from the hull of the 947' ship.

It was just by chance that it ended up close to the 1,080' size others talk about because in LW I just use the mouse to scale a percentage and see how it fits and only afterwards do I do a measurement.

@Donny - Thanks! The lack of wall details helped out in this case

I see and now I understand. The 1,080'+ overall length figure really answers many questions we'd otherwise have to confront ourselves with (too bad it doesn't work for the size of the bridge).

Just out of curiosity: How long is your shuttlebay from the stern end of the engineering hull to the forward end of the lateral observation corridors / end of actual VFX model?

Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

I wonder how well a 1080'-ish TOS ship can be rectified with a 1000' refit? Maybe she just lost some length in the nacelles?

Looking forward to your measurements, blssdwlf.

Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

In my case, the TMP Enterprise ended up being 355m (1,164') after I had to rescale it to fit the cargobay.

It's 124' long from stern of engineering hull to forward end of flight deck model. I'm not counting the TCOTK Obs deck as I've moved it forward of the flight deck.

Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

Based entirely on the limited TOS footage from the episodes, this is really impressive! Congratulations!

Re: TOS Enterprise WIP

Whenever I get around to doing interiors of the unseen areas of the engineering section, I'm borrowing a page out of Google. It's so colorful and TOS-ish

Yeah, Google's industrial designer was obviously a Trekkie.
