    I can see the Connie behind Mudd’s vessel the red nacelles alternating flashing like a police car light bar:

    pull over!

    I just thought of something...there might be a way to get AMT Enterprise nacelles to "flap."

    The slots the one piece nacelle supports slide into?

    Imagine two bottle caps top to top...the axis running fore to aft in the secondary hull.

    I affix one slot soundly to one cap...with half of it just gliding above the other cap---and vice versa.

    Seen from above...the slots look like this equals sign floating above a line splitting them apart down the middle.

    Make the caps comic sections...and slide the AMT tabs into the slots.

    Now you can have the nacelles truly be variable geometry in the physical world.

    Based on my own personal experience with both the AMT TOS and refit Enterprise models, given enough time, they'll eventually "flap" on their own without any additional effort. :D

    I really don't like the protostar design at all, but this is a stunning piece of modeling... :techman:

    So now that its all out in the open, I can finally (my gods, the waiting!) reveal that the finishing of my Protostar asset was in fact for the Roddenberry Archive and their new Apple Vision Pro app and refreshed website.

    As detailed in this article.
    https://deadline.com/2024/02/star-trek-spatial-experience-apple-vision-pro-1235811293/

    And said refreshed website.
    https://roddenberry.x.io/2383-uss-protos/

    Or even here on my artstation if you want somewhat more pixels.
    Though keep in mind that's my version of it, not the version on the official site - which was delivered to Dave Clark by me for conversion to Octane.

    That's amazing (although I can certainly see why your work is part of the Archive)! [​IMG] I can't imagine the relief at finally being able to let on.
