    Here's just a preview of the detail level of the new NX plans..... :twisted:

    this is one of the saucer rim's RCS thruster groupings

    and a sort of x-ray

    Hey Oyl, do you know about Polar Lights' NX-01 model in 1:1000 scale? I think it would be a big help to you as it was made from the CG model used on the show.

    Unfortunately I don't have one of them, but I do know someone who is using it to create his own 3d mesh from it!

    how big is the finished ship going to be?

    That amount of detail is going to require a massive build. You may have to forego details like RCS Thrusters unless your shooting for 1/72 scale which if you are we are looking at a ship filling up a whole room.

    Consider the scale of the RCS thruster assembly on the Constitution Refit. Thats a chunk of ship the size of 2 decks. I'd equate to about roughly 6m in height. A person is 1.8m high and at 1/72 scale would be about 25mm high so a deck would be 35mm high and then rim of just the saucer would be hitting the 70-80mm mark so the model would be massive for that scale of detail. The saucer alone would almost be 2000mm in diameter.

    that wasnt nesesarily what will be the layout for the model!! that was just meant to give an idea of the detail the new design file has!!

    The revised model will probably be the same size as the beta was, at 1/450

    I may address the size again a little further dosn the line, but we'll just have to wait and poke that bear again when we ge there.

    lol, and if anyone out there wants to support the process !!! I would be willing to accept donations of the revered polar lights kits!!! lol:p

    Now that I have spent a few minutes contimplating it......sign1

    I know that in the beginning of all this I fluttered back and forth on the issue of scales a lot!

    but since I am creating both the TOS and Refit versions at 1/350, I suppose it wouldnt hurt to goose the NX up a lil more to be the same size/scale?

    Looking good. It would make a great print at 24x26 in full color.
