TOS 66 inch Enterprise update

She’s all framed up and parts test fitted. The poles under the nacelles are to keep them level until the polyester resin glass filled resin complete cures out. Without the poles they are dead level and the aluminum re enforcement is very strong. But you know how resins are until they cure a full 24 hours.
Nest up is to cut more windows out and preen the hull parts with Evercoat metal glaze to clean up all the warps and dents. Primer and pain the actual hull color so that I can star adding the clear windows. After the hull parts get assemble for good it’s simple to touch up the seams.
Lots to do but here it gets to be fun.
The video I’m loading now is our weekly show. If you really want to know more about this build you should watch it. It answers all your questions and more.
I want to thanks everyone that has so generously donated to this build. I am not being paid to make this for the museum and The Museum of Science Fiction is non profit. So every donation helps and I still need lots of materials. Lead wire, connectors, bustard motors to turn the cages,paint, primer, Evercoat and the list goes on.
Again be sure to watch our weekly show which will be loaded tonight and thanks again.

TOS Enterprise build support needed

A lot more done today on the Big E. We are asking you to support this non-profit build we are doing for the Museum of Science Fiction. If you lend your support by donating you will get your name on the plague that will be placed on the model for all to see. We have a tab on our website menu under “Friends of SNG” that will lead you to the support page for this project.

Got the saucer internal armature installed and the saucer bolted to the neck support. Of course this can all be taken apart to add the lights and add windows and other functions.

Tomorrow I’m installing the removable pylons and nacelles. More tomorrow and thanks for your support.

Building a large TOS Enterprise

The enterprise is framing up fast. I managed to get the internal support armature and mounting bass made. I won’t finish it off until I get the model all painted and finished but I can now move on to attaching the saucer and pylons. All of this will all be remove able as I will need to take it apart and assemble the model as I install the windows, rooms, bridge, hanger bay and so much more. Once done I can lock it all down but I will still have access to the engineering section where the boards and electronics are kept.
Here’s a picture of it so far. More tomorrow.

Lots more to do on these effects as I head back to the studio today. But I thought I’d show you some of the “Unfinished” action in the bay.

Martians Attack SNG update 4-6-15

7 effects shots done to date. Worked Saturday too. These are just frame grabs of the first pass on these. There is After Effects to add yet. But the shots all work well and are quite exciting when seen animated. I added sounds and low rumbles and it was all quite moving so I’m pleased.
Next week I’m cutting the theatrical trailer at long last. Gary I might ask you to do a shot of you in the Rocket man outfit fro the trailer against green screen.
Here are some frame grabs from the edit bay.
