Star Trek StarShip Design for Custom Model Project
Hello... Just been thinking of building a large scale model of a Star trek ship over the years I had thought of just making one of the existing ships from the franchise.
I had mostly thought of the Enterprise E at a scale that would present a 4 to 5 foot model.
mostly my building materials would be engineered more towards a large paper model, using form board and with thoughts of casting it to make sorts of a model kit out of stronger materials like a plastic or resin.
I have some practice with this technique but only on a simple and small model
If anyone has other ideas of achieving this that would be great!
Now on to the General help like i said above i had thoughts of building the Enterprise E but thought if someone would want to design a unique ship for me that i could use.
As for guide lines it would be really up to you what this ship would looks like
some things to note
*must not be a kit-bash unless it looks really good lol
*Federation in design unless i can be convinced for another race
*Form TNG era and up
*Scale of the ship would be around the 400 to 700meter mark
*It can be drawn on paper or modeled in 3d
*A out line of the ship will also work as we can work on the details
*some info on your ship would be nice as well
I would prefer you to post in this thread as i can get input form others on your designs to help me decide which one to pick.
would probable pick a few then see which ones others like the best out of them.
I would say the wining design would get a model but we would have to see how the build goes before i decide that but if every thing works out i would be more than happy to make another.
Probable some other things but can't think of any right now
so I hope to see some great designs over the next week or two as i really would like to get a move on with this project.
