    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.

    Great work! :techman:

    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.

    My understanding has always been NBC had an arrangement with the AMT models company, AMT paid for the construction of the full-sized shuttle and the model company reserved the rights to produce and market the plastic kit.

    NBC also did a similar deal with AMT concerning the Piranha automobile from the Man From U.N.C.L.E. TV series, funding in exchange for kit production and distribution.

    ^^ I know AMT built the mock-ups (both the full-size and miniature exteriors and possibly the full-size interior as well), but it was still a pretty elaborate and impressive effort particularly when you consider the dorky looking shuttle pods TNG had in the beginning and it was supposed to be a more polished production with better resources.

    FWIW, the full story of how the Galileo model and full-size prop came to be built are exhaustively detailed in Marc Cushman's meticulously sourced These Are The Voyages: Season One book. Yet another excuse to buy it! :cool:

    I know cause that's where I got some of my info. I knew from way back (reading TMoST) AMT built the full-size exterior, but I didn't know until recently that they might have built the miniature and the interior as well.

    This is looking really great! Keep it up!
