Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

^Heh.

More of the process I would like to see as well, but if he didn't take the pics already, then it's going to be more effort than he probably wants to expend.

Instead I ask that when he remodels the Romulan Bird of Prey, he remembers to fully document the event.

(See how I didn't even assume he wouldn't do a BoP... That's got to be a sure thing now, right?)

We don't need to burn him, per se.

Witches burn, so they're probably made of wood or something. We could build a chair out of him, or mayhaps some charming folk art.

Thank you.


I'm working on the bridge shape now.

No, no, no, no! Don't thank me, son. I'm gonna have you dragged out of your house and burned at the stake for witchcraft unless you prove this is simple craftmanship. Only someone who has consorted with Lucifer himself can possibly throw together a model of this quality with plexiglass and a few scraps of styrene.

Can you show some photos of the entire process of development for something like this little piece? Like the rest of the ship you're building, this bridge looks fantastic, but there it is nearly finished. It's been glued together, primed, sanded, and then attached to another piece and puttied and sanded ... but ... would it be possible for you to slow down on one of these components and show the design sketch, the raw components, then the assembly process step-by-step, before you get to this part? Just a handful of detailed images or one big collage or something?

'Cause otherwise, I'm gathering kindling.
I haven't been taking a lot of pics of the process itself. But how I'm making a lot of the shapes is by vac forming styrene.

First I make a form, it can be out of anything, wood, or plexi etc. Any material that can withstand the heat and pressure of the vac forming process.

Then after it's vac formed, you have a hollow part just like a regular styrene kit.

To get the panels, I vac form a second layer of thinner styrene over the top, then draw out the pattern and cut the panels out and glue them on.

Now what am I supposed to do with all this firewood?

Anyone up for roasting weenies?

Thanks, REL, that was a wonderful presentation. And then you take these vac-formed components and glue them to your acrylic hull?

Eh, save it for a cold winter day. Or a summer bonfire.

I suppose it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that he is so impressive, because while going through the older art threads, I came across REL's scratch built K'tinga, which is pretty impressive itself.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

Thanks again.

I'm starting on some of the hyper detailing now, scribing, little panels etc.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

Is it just me, or do the panels going along the top-center of the bridge module remind you of Klingon forehead ridges? Neat.

And I love the little radial strips surrounding the bridge area. I've noticed those on the Klingon ships (except of course, MJ's D-7). I could never imagine a sensible purpose to having them there, but dang, it sure looks more like a Klingon ship with them in place!

I've always assumed it's some sort of forward sensor grid utilizing the hull itself to create the shape of the array.

Don't do it! Envy is said to be one of the seven deadly sins! It's okay to be jealous, but envious is a whole different kind of animal.
