    Oh YES (As said Dean martin) !!! The satisfaction me invaded !!!!!
    The gate rises and comes down without any effort or tear. There is a luck only for the villains!
    You will notice saw them unsightly, to the right.
    Temporary, they will soon disappear.
    Just for the pleasure, the sight on the space, for a trial flight on the enterprise...

    Here is the first ended stage. According to my progress, I would post the other photos of Shuttlebay 02. I hope in any case that it will please you as much as I feel some pleasure to build this model.

    As I quoted it previously, a hoist is an inescapable accessory in in a shuttlebay.
    In the same way as lamps, the hoist is never shown in the series, worse it is not even hinted.
    For all that, it was necessary appear there.
    Three points mattering for it:
    - its localization,
    - its dimension,
    - its shape.

    The localization: never visible, it was evident that the only possible place had to be in this dead angle, never exploited in the series. Having said that, in spite of my efforts, I go out of the frame of the "discretion" (such as he appears on my model, it would have been visible during the shooting !)

    The dimension: this hoist is in the size of a shuttle of type 15 (the smallest of the series). As I had to indicate it somewhere in another post, the shuttle of type 6 is too important for having its port of registry in this shed. I thus have create a hoist for the only maintenance of shuttlepod typ 15.

    The shape: what to say furthermore that what shows the image. This shape is not incompatible in the standart " Starfleet ". Furthermore, it is rather elegant.

    I cut a simple rectangular shape, and make a plastic frame ....

    Platform adapted to the typical shuttlepod type 15 ...

    Here its localization. As I say it higher, the hoist extends beyond a few the frame that the imperative pictures of the series imposed it.

    I was wondering that myself. Capt Dazio's work continues to impress. :)

    Capt Dazio,

    Great to see you here! I'm sure the folks in this forum will very much appreciate your efforts with this model. Like I said in the Okudagrams forum, this is simply astonishing work... the level of detail and care is amazing.

    Please continue to share with us, and welcome to the Trek BBS! :D

    Dear Bolian Admiral,
    But yes !!! it is indeed the same that on Okudagrams!!
    One thank you for your comment which really pleased me.

    I am happy to be able to present my model here.
    I looked for an US forum on Star Trek for a long time. I opted for this one which pleases me and is serious.
    So, you will not be any more forced to see it on the French forum.

    Many experimentations to elaborate this lamp. I am not certain still totally to preserve this lighting system so much the intensity is weak and white.
    It is a last resort, acceptable at the moment.
    Four leds are recquis to obtain a satistafisant lighting. My assembly is really of the amateur level.

    A wooden coffering in the form of roof dressed in aluminium. I have to add it on the highly-rated to diffuse the light towards the door and the round corner.

    The second frame will be certainly identical, just more reduced. These two frames will fit into the "Carton-plume" (other name "carton-mousse") which is a stiff cardboard with foam polyuréthane.
    I privilege the lightness also.

    A foretaste of the fact that will be the shuttlebay with its ground layer and its first lightings.
    For the ceiling, I finally used 4 leds (I thought of installing neon of small sizes. For Lcars and ceiling light of the cabin, I added resistances.
    I underline that the lamps of ceiling are not ended. I again have to stick the frame, putty it, sand and paint it. Besides, a second lamp has to take place in foreground.
    The ground layer is of mark Tamiya ( semi-glossy Grey H305). I opted for this a little bit brilliant paint because only restricted parts will be visible and I wished that what would stay is a little bit relief. I remind that clear grey panels will come to hide the main part of walls. The horizontal beams will be peintent in white.
    I hope that my choice will be relevant.

    [​IMG]

    Lamps are not visible in put into series it, but I imagine that they should look like it.

    If you have remarks on the paint (the choice of colors), said the me.

    I'm not sure I understand the question. If you're not able to create a "custom avatar" for the forums yet, that's probably because you need to achieve a certain "rank" (meaning a certain number of posts on the BBS) before you can do that. I don't remember if there's a limit on that, though.

    For me, I can change my avatar any time, from my "User CP" menu. I don't plan to, but I could... :)

    Hello Cary L. Brown,
    Then, I understood! I did not post enough posts !!! From how many posts we can create the avatar ? Who can inform me and to whom I may write?
    Thanks, Capt Dazio

    Wow. As someone who's done a meager amount of kitbashing, I have to say you must have incredible patience.

    That is phenomenal work you're doing.

    The pod is part of what I consider my best effort:[​IMG]

    It's in the FAQ which is linked above, but you need at least 50 posts and you have to have been a member for at least two weeks.

    Nice Nebbie. :D

    Capt Dazio,

    Did you make all the shuttles yourself, or are those resin kits? They look great, no matter what!

    BolianAdmiral,
    The shuttlepod type 15 is in resin. The mark is " Federation Model ". It is in the scale 1/72 and measure :
    Heigth : 2.7 cm
    Length : 5.7 cm
    Width : 2.85 cm
    Problem: the dimensions which I find on internet are different. I am going to have to examine...

    The shuttlecraft type 6 is in resin. The mark is "Alliance". 1/72, also!
    It is really bigger.
    Heigth : 3.7 cm
    Length : 9 cm
    Width : 5 cm

    However, I wish to make my own shuttle of type 15, with opened cockpit. And also figures, but there, I have no "master's degree" (!?), then I do not know if I could.

    Friendly, Capt Dazio

    For anyone not familiar with them, "Federation Models" (located up in the Chicago area) has a huge selection of this sorta stuff. I'm not associated with them in any way, mind you (though I have met the guys who run the outfit in person, since I used to live near where they operate from, and the "space model" community can be fairly small in a given area!). But I can recommend them without reservation.

    Just go to "www.federationmodels.com." They make a few items of their own, and resell (not "recast" but rather "buy, stock and resell") the works of lots of the better outfits.

    In particular, I recommend you look under "Probert Designs" in the "models" category. There's only one item in there from him so far, but I think you might want it.

    I know well this company, and I bought my models to them.

    I possess :
    FM-07 Shuttlepod Type 15,
    AM-07 Shuttlecraft type 6,
    AM-20 Galileo (Movie Style),
    AM-17 Galileo (TOS),
    AM-10 Shuttlepod NX-01,
    AM-37 Work Bee - Cargo train,
    AM-15 Delta Flyer,
    AM-19 Argo.

    I also wish to buy the following references, but I wait for promotions,
    AM-22 Type 9 Shuttlecraft,
    AM-11 Type 13 Shuttlecraft
    MMI-1516 Type 10 Shuttlecraft.

    I their wrote our to know if they thought of making figures Star Trek in 1/72 scale. They have never answered me.

    I know the model of shuttlecraft type 7 of "Probert Designs", who is very beautiful, but it is in 1/76, thus it does not interest me. I shall have to make it !

    Wow! All these years and it NEVER occurred to me that the shuttlebay/cargo bay door was the exact same door set piece that was used to seal off engineering in Star Trek II!
