2ft E-D model

I've become a bit curious about this studio model. Aside from the brief moment during the intro and other warp sequences, are there any clear shots of it? Any photos of the model out there aside from this one?

More infos here too btw
http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/articles/galaxy.htm

I anyone knows of any sites with really great photos of any of the models, please link them!

Re: 2ft E-D model

I don't think I've ever seen much about it.

Re: 2ft E-D model

In Issue #1 of the long-defunct ST:TNG - The Magazine, put out by Starlog, there is a good photo of Greg Jein holding the 2-foot model of the 1701-D.

The model can also be seen in Mike Okuda's "office" in some photos that I've seen online. I have a copy of one of the Okuda photos somewhere. If I can find it, I'll scan it.

Re: 2ft E-D model

Ok... I found it... the the photo of Greg Jein holding the 2-footer.

It's one of the ST:TNG Behind the Scenes trading cards... the card called "Vendor Miniatures".

I will scan it in the morning, and post it, unless someone else has it, and beats me to it. In the meantime, here's one I found of all three models... 6, 4, and 2-footers.

This photo is almost begging for a caption contest.
It's like the Mommy Enterprise, Baby Enterprise, and Daddy Enterprise...

Where would you put the SIX footer then?

Re: 2ft E-D model

Wow, thanks Bolian.

The six footer looks really beautiful there, as does the four in its fugly goodness. It's also nice to see the 'head' model with the working locking plates. I wonder where that went?

I also wonder if the two footer is more bulldog-ish like the four or maintains the lines of the six-footer better?

IIRC, the model of the upper battle section was sold at the Christie's auction.

Re: 2ft E-D model

Wow. It doesn't look all that different from the model kit.

Re: 2ft E-D model

Nice. thanks for the photos.

I have that TNG The Continuing Mission book that has lots of photos of the 6 footer being built. There isn't nearly as much info about the 4 and 2 footer out there.

Enterprise E-D models

from this page about Designing the Enterprise NCC-1701-E for Star Trek: First Contact.

This picture is from the CGI version of ST:Insurrection film and how it was 4 years later that he was able to make small design changes to the NCC-1701-E for ST:Nemesis.
http://www.starshipdatalink.net/art/1701-e.html

This thread is about the 2ft. models but I thought you would find this of interest.

Re: Enterprise E-D models

Thanks for the link. Good stuff.

It's interesting that some folks say there are only a few good angles to film the D from. I think a big part of the reason the E-D was shot at such few angles for seasons 1-3 was the inability to quickly & cheaply work with the 6 footer and that the 2 footer wasn't detailed enough.

In the later seasons of TNG they came up with lots of great new angles to shoot with the 4 footer. I think there are more great angles than unsightly. Most of the new shots in seasons 4-7 are excellent. Shots in Final Mission, Unification, and Birthright come to mind (watched them recently). They pull back from the D and shoot with more complex scenes with more ships, planets, etc. Birthright has that great "space tour" shot where the camera goes on a little adventure of its own lol.

Also interesting to learn than John Eaves helped build the 4 footer.

Anyone know if there are any scenes aside from the warp sequences that use the 2 footer ?
