Re: Deck Plans VI: The Undiscovered Bowling Alley

The name Gary Kerr crops up every now and then, but where is his work published? Or was it just done for a studio or something?

Here we go, at least until Shaw comes up with something a bit more final...



Not sure what it's supposed to prove, but doesn't it look kinda freaky?


I wish I had this larger size and clearer.
If it was leading somewhere, I would've kept it larger, but since it doesn't appear to really lead anywhere, I just did this for everyone's amusement.

As soon as Shaw cooks up the final configuration, I'll put together something a bit more monstrous.

I don't know if his stuff has been published anywhere, but he is the one guy who's had hands-on access to both the TOS and TMP ship models, and therefore, has the most accurate blueprints, commissioned by Paramount, and are only available to licensees who are doing something related to either of those two ships.

He's also been known to post in these parts, so don't be surprised if he shows up and corrects something I just said.

Re: Deck Plans VI: The Undiscovered Bowling Alley

i dont know if he ever took a whack at the E-D but i've also seen some great drawings of his, of the E-C before it was converted to the yamato.

i also believe there are still jpegs of his refit drawings over on the culttvman site.

Re: Deck Plans VI: The Undiscovered Bowling Alley

Well, first and foremost, I want everyone to remember that I'm only promising to do my best. I hope to side step issues I've seen in the works of Sinclair and Casimiro, but that doesn't rule out all new errors on my part.

The story that I read of Kerr's access to the original Enterprise was that he wasn't originally able to take all the measurements that he wanted when he was with the model in person and had to rely on Miarecki for additional measurements. His work was linked to a project that has been put on indefinite hold and is therefore unavailable for public viewing (though he has made his work available for private projects).

By contrast, I'm trying to make my work as open to the public as possible for projects just like this one.

I hope to have something a little more useful (at a much higher resolution) as soon as I've gotten the bills out of the way.

Well, Gary's work is being used as reference on the upcoming 1/350 TOS E model kit, so I'm guessing that the project you're referring to was something else.

Re: Deck Plans VI: The Undiscovered Bowling Alley

His plans have been used for a ton of models (like Unobtainium, Master Replicas and Custom Replicas), but his plans themselves are tied up and are not open to the public. Getting a model based on his plans isn't the same as getting his plans any more than getting the PL TOS 1/1000 Enterprise is like getting Sasser's plans (which are also quite nice from what I've seen).

As for his work on the R2 1/350 Enterprise, I'm sure it is quite high quality, but that isn't the real question. The real question is if R2 can make a model. His involvement is nice, but if the model never actually happens it won't have made any difference. At this point, a 1/350 kit is a nice idea people keep dangling in front of us and little more.

His plans have been tied up for years... and while it seems like the 1/350 kit has been talked about for nearly as long, that obviously isn't the project.

But if you want the details, you can always ask him.

Thanks guys - not the best news about Kerr's plans, but at least I'm a little more enlightened now!

My understanding is that Gary himself is doing the drawings for the model (so far, twenty-six drawings of just the nacelles!)

Re: Deck Plans VI: The Undiscovered Bowling Alley

Just to let y'all know that I'm not completely idle on this matter, here's a little something I doodled on the back of an Einstein Brothers Bagels receipt...
