    This was in the Arts forum as part of my TAS shuttlecraft builds, but these few images I thought I'd share here.

    These TAS as live-action pics were done some years ago.

    Nice. That unknown planetoid looks vaguely familiar however..

    Fine work--the Aquashuttle really takes on a new life.

    I wonder how you would handle the Orion pirate ship...

    I'd have to really study it. In my opinion you can't simply take a roughly drawn animation design and translate directly into the "real" world and expect it to look credible. You have to adapt and tweak it. With the TAS shuttlecraft I strived to retain the essential concept and general overall look while massaging the designs into something more believable in appearance and size.

    That Orion ship is a mess. I've tried drawing schematics of it and gave up. I had trouble getting the views to match. Also, the ship looks OK from a few angles (the ones in the episode) but looks clunky from others.

    I can hear the animated ep scores in my head as I look at the images.

    Just recently watched these episodes. Fascinating cool the pictures you posted here!

    (and I noticed you went for the TOS EVA space suits instead of the TAS life support belts :D)

    Sort of like what they did with remastered TOS I guess, as in making some of the cargo ships/freighters look like their TAS designs.

    Nice work on these, though Uhura looks a bit flat-chested in the skin tight spacesuit. ;)

    In the pic on the asteroid, the shuttle nacelles look like they're too far back.

    Otherwise, great work. :techman:

    Any further forward and you couldn't get through the hatch.

    I thought the nacelle was used as a step up to the hatch?

    Look closely and you can see the fold out steps on the support strut in front of the nacelle.

    And an appearance by Nessie in one of the underwater frames. Nice touch!
