hi i'll try it allso so send one my way
Want to make sure I have your other e-mail, so you can get it on your computer?
no not yet sorry it's a 50/50 chance and my dad will forrward it to my computer
So it turns out the cut outs on the aft of the saucer for the Farragut are too wide. If none of you have started building yet, hold off until I get you the fixed files.
It looks pretty good though.
I just started printing when I read this; I'll build around this problem for the time being.
Regardless, I'm going to see the movie on IMAX tomorrow.
hi i just read the complete countdown comic series i'm going to up grade the enterprise e to the way it in the comics i'm also going to try make the narada from begining the comics
The primary hull is so integral, I don't think you really can build around it...
Slow going on this model - not much time this weekend but I did get the hood's secondary hull started again. The back end is much better now with the internal pieces and new lip. However, the shuttlebay door is too small. I tried enlarging it and it still didn't quite work. Paragon, I think it may be better to switch to a clamshell design like on Ron's TOS Enterprise rather than the Ent-A version.
Oh wow, that is way too small... I think I might just try making it taller and steeper.
I think the problem is that a single piece like that can only make a cone/cylinder and the bay is a quarter sphere. I was thinking of taking one of the nacelle noses and cutting it in half and painting it flat grey (taking out the texture on the bottom edge) and seeing if that would work.
Something like this, but maybe a little taller and with the lines between the cuts extended down to the bottom to create a scallop texture. Whatcha think?
Well while Im waiting on the farragut primary hull fix I've started a little design project . Ive got the nacelles done so far built and proven, thread will be up momentarily. not going to tell you what it is though, youre going to have to play name that nacelle sign1.
How about this?
Paragon I'm sending you this file (along with my other fixes I already sent you). I won't be around for the rest of the weekend so if you wanna change it go ahead, otherwise I'll check for comments later.
Good news! I found my camera, so I can finally start uploading pictures of the models. Warning though, there are a LOT.
Anyway, first is the Farragut, with the wrong saucer cut outs. Then the Hood, and finally, the USS Hartford, a ship I designed to fit into the era, its sort of a mix between the Kelvin and Stargazer.
Excellent! I now see everything I did wrong sign1
thanks oh by the way when are they going to be on your site
Soon I think, they just need some touch-ups. In fact, I think the shuttlebay is the last issue.
Hey that looks good man! I can't wait to see what the griffin looks like man. You have always done a good job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:thumb::thumb:
WOW. The ships look very good. You have my respect!!! You are a really good Star trek model designer.
