Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

Very nice work. would it be possible to see a hidden geometry view? I'm curious to see how you built it up.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

It's been awhile, but here's my new-and-improved lower hull. The main differences are the leading edge where the slope meets the leading edge more gracefully and the transition of the underside outer edge toward the aft. That transition could prove interesting to Gary Kerr as well because it starts off as a round, but it becomes an edge as it transitions aftward. It's true of the full-size mockup as well only there it's not only more abrupt, but it's also not as noticeable because we never see the underside of the mock-up. Curiously it doesn't look at all like that on the miniature partly because the underside is more shallow and the edge of the lower rails as seen aft are shaped differently. If I change the shape of the lower rails then I'm deviating from what was seen on the full-size mock-up and I don't want to do that. So I'm going to keep it as is and follow my original idea of adapting the miniature's underside cutout into the mock-up's underside shape.

Hopefully I can show you that soon.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

This more accurately illustrates what I was trying to describe in the previous post. Where the bottom meets the side starts off as a round and transitions to an edge. Weird, but that is the way it is.



And here's the underside cut-out.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

Slow and steady progress.



I set myself a goal of trying to get a little something done each evening. This evening was the rim between the lower and upper hulls and the stabilizer wings.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

Okay folks, here's a little something. I finished up the sides and stabilizers and got started on the centre section with the bottom. Next I have to complete the bow where the upper sides meet the leading edge.



What you're seeing is deceptive. I'm actually working on only one half of the model, but I mirror it and put the two sides together to show where things stand overall. This will work until I have to start adding asymmetrical details to the ship including markings.

Looking good. Using TrueSpace I could never get my curves to render that smoothly, so I'm suitably impressed.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

Seeing this take form from scratch one can quickly appreciate that this design is far from being a simple boxy shape. Actually it's quite impressive that they built such a thing as a full-size mock-up and it differed very little from what I'm making here. It's certainly far more complex than anything similar TNG ever did in terms of shuttlecraft mock-ups.

Thanks. I was spurred somewhat to get going on this after the recent announcement R2 is presently developing a 1/32 scale kit of the TOS shuttlecraft. I put a lot of thought and work into reconciling the differences between the full-size mock-up, the "flying" miniature and the interior set into one integrated "real world" vehicle so I'm quite curious as to what Gary Kerr comes up with in drawing up the model R2 will eventually produce.

For those who might not know Gary Kerr is greatly responsible for the fantastically detailed 1/350 scale TOS Enterprise being released very soon.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

This stupid little corner took a good deal of time to finish. I'm glad to be done with it. Now I'm going to move on to the forward sloping hull and roof.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

This is still just the raw model and not yet rendered, but here is some substantial progress. The main hull and stabilizers are done. Now it's some hull detailing before moving on to the nacelles and supports pylons.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

I actually quite like this design and always have. It manages to look interesting and somewhat utilitarian at the same time. It's certainly not just a simple box. It's also interesting that what we see here is pretty much the full-size mock-up with but only a few tweaks: the underside detail of the miniature is added, a little lifting of the nose, the roof isn't quite as flat and is a bit more curved (for more interior space), the stabilizer/rim at midsection is tidied up and the front of the hull bottom is matched to the curvature of the leading edge of the bow.

Amazing they built such a complex full-size prop on a television budget.
