8.5 or 9 inches by 18 inches.
Hey Jim, got a couple of pics to help answer your questions. The first from the lower right corner of the Saladin blueprints.
The second is from the Enterprise Bridge blueprints. It doesn't give exact dimensions but it has a scale so maybe it will get you in the ballpark.
By the way, I Photoshopped an Ajax bridge plaque but it's on my computer that 's now in storage. I'd could dig it out if you'd like me to send it to you.
And about the Captain's Chair restoration, here's a little of what I did today.
Click the image to see the video clip.
I wanted to clarify this. My job is building the studio, I have very little to do with the production. Because we are opening the studio to other fan films we have separated the studio and production into two different projects. To put it simply, I'm building the set for Ajax Studio, the first production to use the studio is going to be Starship Ajax.
Since I don't have things like story writing, casting, costume... to worry about I can and should get the details as close as I can, but believe me there is plenty of small details that I'm letting slide by.
Well, here it is, so the proportions can be figured from there...
Is there an "official" mailing address to ship things to you folks?
Depends on what it is and whether it needs to come to the production in Oklahoma City or to Jim the "Prop" Builder in Vermont. If you don't want to discuss it here email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This sounds more like a prop issue.
It sure does....James, PM me if you'd like...
Thanks guys...all good stuff.
So, any ideas about where she was built? I'm wide open to suggestions...but let's try to keep it cannon...
Keep it "cannon?"
If you want starship shipbuilding facilities, there actually aren't that many to choose from in The Canon.
Jim, that blueprint clip says she was built in San Fransisco. I know that blueprints aren't cannon but I'd suggest, to keep things from getting confusing, we follow the trend already started. But that's just me.
This actually gets me wondering about how they built ships,er, uh, are going to build ships. These days one company makes all the same type ships at one ship yard. I have been assuming they do this in Trek Land too but maybe not. Is there any mention of say a Galaxy class ship being built anywhere other than San Fran?
I believe that most Galaxy class ships were built in Utopia Planitia on Mars.
Sometimes my big ol' fingers double-strike the keys...
San Fran it is!
My pile gets bigger and bigger...gotta make a ray generator, commissioning plaque and a few more goodies for our "Guest Aliens"...
And then there's all those masks and hands to mold...and paint...and detail...
...and then I have to look over the script for the vigniette to see if I missed anything.
Wait til you see Starbase 14 guys! It's unlike anything you've seen before!
Just a heads-up...
J.C. sent me a copy of the script for episode one, and I gotta tell you guys.........WOW!! Seriously.
GREAT story. Action and humor, all well-measured, as well as terrific character developement. I can hardly wait to get started!!! Well done, AJAX, let's kick this thing into high gear!!
Kind words, Jim... Saying I'm honored
doesn't quite cut it.
All of it is true, bud! Now, can we get started on that Harry Mudd ep? I'm just dying to play Harry!!!
So how goes it with the bridge rebuild? Things have been quiet. Some new pics would me nice!
on a break last 2 weeks......... should re-group again on Monday.........
As far as i know, The Support Crew is continuing to
work at a steady pace on the Captain's chair and Navigator/Helm
consoles (what we affectionately call the Command Module).
It's not easy work. We are actually fixing it up so all the buttons
& lights work. More pics to come, but probably not for the next
couple of weeks.
