A few more hull details.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

A small detail. Rather than just trying to paint an access panel onto the lower hull I've tried to actually make one with a very small seam around between the coloured panel and the hull. The natural shadow in the small recess should make a more convincing outline even if it is small and probably never noticed. In reality the seam would probably be even smaller, but at this scale I think the effect lets me get away with this. I'd like to do the main access hatch in a similar way.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

Aft engines and support pylons.



Today I'll be tackling the nacelles of which all of it can be mirrored except for the registry numbers. Then the last symmetrical piece will be the aft landing strut assembly, which I might or might not get to today because I'll be going to visit my dad recovering from bypass surgery in the hospital.

When all the symmetrical stuff is done then I'll mirror it all and move on to asymmetrical detailing. For colour I'm going with a very light grey above as well as the rim/stabilizers and support pylons and a moderately darker shade underneath and on the nacelles.

There are some very minor things I'm not really happy with on this, but overall though I'm rather satisfied with how this is corking out.

Call me very impressed I've haven't even successfully created a sphere in Sketchup and I work with a 3d cad program at work every day

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

A few early renders for a different feel to the design. Also looks a bit closer to what this might look like in styrene grey.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

I'll soon start working on finishing the nacelles and then on to all the asymmetrical detailing.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

I swear your model rivals some of the ones I've seen sculpted in "high end" suites like LightWave or 3D Studio Max. Of course, you've researched this craft for years, taking into account the variations between the exterior mock-up, the interior cabin set and the miniature.

I have a suspicion this is your favorite craft from the entire franchise.

Sincerely,

Bill

No (my favourite is the TOS E), but I've long felt the TOS shuttlecraft has gotten little recognition and often dismissed as a simple boxy "butter dish" shape when it most certainly isn't.

OMG, absolutely fantastic. I really love the progress that you have made. She looks fine and not a soap dish to me but a work of art.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

It is a lot like our space shuttle. Folks call it a brick but on closer inspection, it has a lot of curves. Bad for tiles though.

Now--talk about a brick: http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/Roc...huttlePage.htm

Its side view is actually rather like a TOS shuttle...

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

I keep meaning to get back to this and I keep getting diverted to other projects. I really should pick up where I left off particularly in light of what I've learned since.

Re: 3D TOS Shuttlecraft...

Great work!

Post # 35 really illustrates what a great design the shuttlecraft had been.

No matter from which angle you look at it, it looks interesting from all angles which I believe is the characteristic of any great design.

Yes, Warped9, you should get back to it.

And I agree with you Bob - from every angle, it's interesting.
