Happy New Year 2020

Slowly returning to normal after the holiday break, and now after a time away from CGI getting my mind back into gear for it. so I took the reimagined Enterprise etc for another render.

I think most fan like the spacedock scene in STTMP, I know I do.

The Wheel "Conquest of Space"

I have now ceased modelling Star Trek designs, I have done all I ever wanted to do and a little more with the fleet.

Looking around before this holiday season chaos effect set in I was mentioned on a Twitter post about The Wheel “Conquest of Space” is a 1955 American Technicolour science fiction film from Paramount Pictures, produced by George Pal, directed by Byron Haskin, that stars Walter Brooke, Eric Fleming, and Mickey Shaughnessy.
The visuals and story was ahead of its time, with audiences now more informed and able to see matte lines the film holds up.

Expect more of this type of design in the future, I have used in this images my Star Trek EVA suited crew for scale and I have like every model I work on try and define a working scale for a fictional design.

The arms connecting the Ring to the central support has 2 levels, you could trim the overall deck height when adding ventilation, environmental and that kind of stuff. The outer ring 4 levels.

My original model was scaled at 489’6ft before more informed fans mentioned on Twitter what they read in Colliers and Across the Space Frontier magazine and Spaceship Handbook, so I rescaled to 220ft & 250ft. still an interesting and fast build for me. the scale well I leave that to whom it may concern.
I have my next projects lined up in the new year, Star Trek modelling has run its course and I have nothing more I want to do in it.
One of those projects is a generic spacesuit design for my cast characters, space hardware is fine but some human element is needed

Star Trek Reimagined Fleet

I have been working on a few designs to add to my Reimagined Constitution Class, my final Starship to be completed is called the Drexler class, for now at least, though I would like to have a go at smaller classes like Oberth Class with a TOS spin and service design like cargo designs.
6 classes in all.
01 Constitution Class
02 Reliant Class (a variant of the Miranda Class I am aware they are the same but fan’s canon as called the Refit Constitution, the Enterprise Class )
03 Miranda Class
04 Loknar Class
05 Hutzel Class
06 Drexler Class
Last two named after Gary Hutzel and Doug Drexler
I will work on other “pods” in the future, perhaps other designs if the mood takes me.
