Has anyone done a USS Pearson? (after Lester B Pearson).
Usually I'm wearing a baseball cap with a starfleet emblem on it.
ONLY a baseball cap with a starfleet emblem on it.
Boy, isn't THAT a vivid image...
..and I can't...
Forbin, I love the thru-deck carrier section view. Do you do deck plans, too?
If so, might I suggest you contact Amarillo Design Bureau, the creators / publishers of Star Fleet Battles? They are looking for people who can do deckplans for ships in their game, for use in the Prime Directive role-play-game books. They have ported PD to the GURPS, D20 and D20M system, and are working with Mongoose Publishing to port it to Traveller. Mongoose wants a ton of deck plans in the core rulebooks; more plans that anybody has drafted up yet.
Here's ADB's contact info site: http://www.starfleetgames.com/about.shtml
Disclaimer: I do not work for nor speak for ADB or Mongoose. I just play the game and sometimes submit ideas, and once in a great while they publish something I thought up. ;-)
Thanks, I have fiddled with a couple of single-deck example plans for my bashes, but I'm not smart enough to try to figure out EVERY deck in a ship. And I'm really not looking for a job.
For instance, the main deck of the Coeur de Lion:
Yeah, I hear you there. I did one set of deck plans for "the smallest ship in the fleet", that being the Federation Police Cutter. I can't post the plans here or anywhere else on the WWWeb, for the will be published in a product later this year or early next year, but here's the ship in question:
Well, they're not going to HIRE anyone full-time or even part-time, but they will pay for completed projects. I can't say how much, but it's not a ton of money. A couple-few hundred bucks, not thousands and thousands.
By the way, I really love what you've done with the Coeur de Lion!
I love your work Forbin--and nice SFB art Sgt.
Publusr: Just to be clear, those links are NOT my work. That is the 3d model that Mongoose did to send to a 3d printer as the master to build the molds for the mini production. What I did was take that image and reverse-engineer a set of deck plans. One nice thing about the new Starline 2500 series of minis is all the ships are done in the same 1:3125 scale.
Here's a low-res clip of one-half of Deck Three from MY work.
Yes, that looks like *BLEEP*, but that's because of how Steve Cole had to take a TIFF and force it into the PDF. What was printed in Captain's Log #47 (that being, all of Deck Three) looks a lot better. The entire ship will be in a publication at some future date.
I've been following your work on the ADB Forums ever since you started this quite a while back and I'm looking forward to seeing your deck plans printed. Keep up the good work. What will be your next Challenge ?
I love that Perry ship, how big is it compared to a Connie?
Bernard: Remains to be seen. SVC asked me to think about doing the Armed Priority Transport, although I think its cousin the Armed Cutter might be more fun.
I was thinking about doing something like the USS Renner, just for my own enjoyment. http://www.cygnus-x1.net/links/lcars/uss-renner-class.php
VERY small. Considering the scale people I used in the model, it puts the length at 229 feet, width at 178.
The Conqueror is sexy. I find your solution to the internal arrangement of the cargo bay and engineering section quite elegant.
Ask and ye shall receive:
Forbin, Do you have the Coeur de Lion deck plans posted on your web site? I was looking for a larger version, but I can't find any links.
Nope, that IS the one I have on my site. I have some in my portfolio section:
I need to do a major update some day to put link them to the kitbash pages, but that would make sense.
Awesome data sheets
How can i get ones that are bigger? some have text that are too small to read.?
I guess, like I said, I should make big ones available on my site. I used to actually sell A2 sized prints of the ones at the above link, but I soon discovered I hated being a "vendor." . And them my large-format printer died.
