On a side note, could someone, anyone, still on hobbytalk.com tell Griffworks to check his message folder over here? I'm seeing a lot of juicy discussions over there (including a cousin of this one) that I can't jump in on until he lifts that permaban.
Can do.

...and done.

Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...

Starting to put the set together and what the sheets will look like. While I'm doing this I'm thinking about how I want to tackle the vehicles' interiors.

Slow progress.



Note that the drawing on the sheet and the accompanying scale bar are 5% smaller than the other sheets so that I can fit the drawing comfortably within the border.

Thanks for keeping it in line drawings with no shading.

I hope to do some other drawings, perhaps in perspective, that will have shading to give a different effect.

I got sidetracked for a bit and I just purchased a new computer. Now that I've got my new iMac pretty much all squared away I'll be getting back to work on the shuttlecraft projects.

Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...

A thing I noticed about your Class L heavy shuttle...
Doesn't appear to hold many people, is that right?

I know it's not your original design and that you scaled it to be of comparable size to TOS shuttles.

But eliminate the "nose", as that doesn't appear to be habitable cabin space. Then the "hatchback" aft end doesn't appear to hold enough headroom for more cabin space.

That only leaves the very middle of the craft for the cabin. If the side hatch is any indication of size, it appears the Class L can only hold about four persons.

I'm just saying, guess it doesn't make a difference.

I very much like the heavy Class L shuttle design, Gremlin-esque as it is. Your additional work on it is also fairly impressive. Well done.

Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...

^^ I noticed the same thing as I designed it. In following the look of the onscreen design I noticed certain things, like the forward viewport is quite high, higher than it would normally be, but that is the design. Add to it that I tried to rationalize why this would be called a heavy shuttle and what would such a craft be used for. So I rationalized that it is primarily a research vehicle and couldn't hold more than four for a comparatively short period of time.

Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...

Now that things are getting back to normal after a prolonged run-up season to the holidays (I work in retail) I want to get back to finishing this off. Looking back on what I've done here I'm generally pleased with the results.

Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...

I lack access to 3D modelling, but here is a quick-and-dirty illustration of what my adapted scoutship design could look like in perspective.

Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...

I really like that perspective view of your Copernicus. Good stuff.

I'm getting a sense of it being like TOS version of the speedboat shuttle (Type 9?) from VOY, rather than a long-range shuttle from TAS.

Either way, I like it

Re: Ray's TAS shuttlecraft...

Warped9, you've done a stupendous job of bringing these TAS designs to life. Hats off to you. Your drawings are really outstanding.

Having said that, looking these images over underscored my negative impression of TAS' "cartoonish" spacecraft art. The more I look at these designs, the less compatible they seem with the Jefferies design sensibilities of TOS.
