    @Rekkert Thanks for that information. Also I've not seen the Sternbach shuttle diagram before so I've added to the "Concept Art - ships" folder

    It has just occurred to me that although I released the PDF of the Runabout Project back in 2019, I never uploaded the individual pages as images to the archive. So here they are: http://archive.frogland.co.uk/#15444532586577

    @Redgeneral I'm busy with my own runabout and was wandering if you're planning on releasing the cockpit?

    You're a goddamn hero! Are you OK with me trying to see if I can get the filesize down?

    [EDIT] Nevermind, I see that the 3DWarehouse did some funky stuff which made it appear larger than it actually is.

    Alright, as I suspected from the first glance, some work needs to be done in order for it to fit in the actual model. Main point in case: the access door. We can see clearly in Emmisary that there's an inner and an outer door. When looking at the cockpit, the door actually extends beyond the viewport, which doesn't make sense; after all, that viewport is connected to the outer hull, so the door can't extend beyond it. This requires some reworking, and even though I'm going to try and keep it as close to the original as possible, some choices will have to be made.

    On a side note: I've increased the height a bit. Was the original set really so low? Even I with my relatively avarage 1.80 meters would probably bump my head a lot against all those crossbeams :confused:

    Is that the same as for ST II...I seem to remember that a little flatter.

    I seem to remember a TMP phaser drawing that had a little of the TNG dustbuster look... From a long time ago.

    Something for set-designers to look at--and ship modelers too!

    The blinking light tube device (modern props) is something I aim to blueprint at some point.

    At first I thought it was just four pieces with two tubes you linked each pair with. No…it is part of its own U-shaped table.

    I would suspend it upside down like a very special light and mirrors would multiply its numbers.

    That's definitely not the Saratoga; the Saratoga set picked up where the Grissom set from TSFS left off, with the command area rotated so that the science station was closer to the front and to the left of the helmsman, and it doesn't have those weird graphics that look halfway between the TMP-style graphics and the actual 24th century Okudagrams we see at the end of the film. Judging by the style of cameras being used, I suspect this is from one of the Star Trek Adventure attractions at Universal Studios theme parks in the late 80s/early 90s.

    Yep. It's totally the Star Trek Adventure bridge from Universal Studios Hollywood. As a teen, I participated in the attraction and got to see the bridge and other sets. Wish I still had the VHS tape of my show, but it got lost in a move from San Francisco.
