    Jim Slade recently created some absolutely stunning model builder plans of the TMP-era Enterprise using a CAD system.

    He graciously allowed me to display his works on my site.

    You can check them out at the following link:

    Even though they are displayed at a width of 4,000 pixels, they truly can not capture the level of details that exist in the original CAD format.

    I hope you enjoy them...

    Yes - according to Jim, he printed them on a standard 36x24" sheet of high-quality paper.

    He's looking at some printing options so that he can sell these prints -- but the cost, so far, is seriously high ($100)...

    I'll post more news on that front as it becomes available.

    I'd love to see him to do Aridas Balson command cruiser/Federation dreadnought secondary hull.
