thank you all
probably…Makino will soon complete the pattern. Please wait.
Many thanks , master Ron Caudillo
Very nice! The curves are just perfect. I can only hope I'll be able to hide the seams so well.
Where is this one being hosted?
That is my big problem as well... hiding seams, well once it is released then all I can say is... once more into the abyss!!
let me just add my kudos to both Uhu02 and Makino for another wonderful design. Bravo!!! and to Ron, your model of the enterprise is fantastic also. I have this one but not the skill level to construct it. You all should be very proud, these are both clean sharp looking creations and i can't wait to get to work on them for my collection. By the way, not having so much skill in design i'm interested to know what programs you could recomend for me to use to get started with in designing my own models. again thanks to you designers for your talent and generosity. keep up the good work
sorry for the duplicate post, after my first one it didn't show up to read and i thiought i had done something wrong being REAL NEW to this forum thing i have a lot to learn about everything, i just hope you really can teach an old dog new tricks LOL
Looks like Makino has finished the Enterprise parts:thumb:
Ooohhh! The time is nigh!
Makino now seems to be working on the instructions! he is also at work on a Borg Cube as well
Makino is cracking on with the Enterprise instructions:thumb:
Thank you Uhu for sharing the comparison picture with the new Enterprise alongside my TOS version. Beautiful work by you and Makino, I can only hope to get as good as you two! The assembly intructions will be most appreciated and are looking really great; thank you for these Makino!
Are they in scale with each other?
Stunning is right! This is some great work! Between this and the new 1701 Refit model by Rawen over on PM, I think that completes the Enterprise collection, all at an incredibly detailed level. Can't wait to build 'em all! I wasn't the most thrilled at the new movie, but this model makes me that much more excited about it. :thumb:
And Ron, if you ever dig for scale commentary on the new ship, be prepared for conflicting and outrageous results. I've seen everything from "approximately the same size as the 1701-A" to "approximately 3000m long".
Looking again now that the movie is on DVD, it seems they settled on a factor around 700m. Check here and jump down to Enterprise Size Controversy:
Turns out that it was originally designed at about 366m, but then someone of a marketing- rather than technical-nature decided to simply double the size for wow factor. Thus we end up with the controversy. Example:
When I build this, I'll use 366m as my subject size and scale to that.
You know, I've always liked Star Trek, and I have seen all the TOS shows. I liked pretty much all the movies. I really like the newest one. I feel that Abrams has basically given us a chance to see it all again from the original series, yet withh fresh new and a little more acceptable stories. I don't think "over analyzing" this or any other shows/movies makes sense. I think the new Enterprise in the latest movie looks cool. I guess I'm saying I can't stand people who want to completely analyze and take apart such things and say that "it doesn't make sense". Just enjoy it for what it is: a sci-fi movie to entertain us, not educate us on warp engine systems.:cry:
I agree with what was said above. Yes you can take it too far and fall away from the primary point - entertainment. However, if you're already at the point where you're building models of said entertainment subjects, then the discussion has its place. Especially when you're building multiple subjects from the same genre, it's nice to know what the writers intended for these ships to look like.
As far as I can tell from my searches, The new Enterprise is a little longer than the old 1701-E. I can definitely believe this based on all the factory like open spaces in the ship. I also like how having such things made the ship feel so much more "functional" if you will. It Would be nice to see a general explanation as to the location of the movie sets on the ship. After that we could figure out the rest by comparison.
And the best part about the new movie is the warp engines didn't appear to rely as much on the secret "purple smoke" idea. U could at least see them going to work.
Makino is doing an excellent job on the Enterprise instructions:thumb:
This is going to be good...
More superb work on the instructions by Makino brings us ever closer to release of this much anticipated model
Makino was finished it:thumb:
