    Thought you may like to see my efforts at making a replica(ish) of the Captains Chair from the original Star Trek, its for a puppetry type film I am making, I made a quick video of the process using my home made headcam and edited it together to give you a rough idea of the stages of production...

    Art Asylum communicator grid falling off

    I've got one of the older AA/DST classic communicators with the awesome metal grid (huzzah!). The tragic part is that one of the wire joints that goes into the round discs that the grid pivot on has come loose. Anyone know how these were attached, or the best way to reattach them? Were the...

    Multiple Budget Build Star Trek Props

    A quick video showing a bunch of various Star Trek props I made from materials and paints from the local Dollar Store. There's hyposprays, Padds, handheld medical scanners, klingon tricorders and communicators, and more. Each prop literally cost only a buck or two to make... Thank God for...

    ST TOS indicator / display panel question

    YES! I realize this has been beaten to death. I've spent three weeks combing the interwebs going back to 2001 looking at it. And yes, I know there is at least two authorities on this topic. I did reach out to one of them with no response, and the other... it's probably best not to ask him...

    Art Asylum Phaser Troubleshooting.

    Looking into a little insight from anyone who has bought the Classic Star Trek Phaser from Art Asylum. I got one of these for Christmas. It seemed to work ok in "display mode" while it was in the box. BUT as soon as I removed the plastic tab to bring it out of display mode, the phaser went...

    One-Sixth Studio Scale TOS Enterprise

    I'm building a one-sixth studio scale (or about 1/500th scale) model of the 11 foot Enterprise. This model will be similar to my Phase II Enterprise model in that it will be a study model for a set of plans of the 11 foot studio model as a model. Also, this model will be similar to my Phase II...

    Wooden Starship USS Enterprise Model

    I just wanted to share my latest project with all of you. I built a 36 inch wooden model of the old school Starship Enterprise, made of maple, black walnut, padauk, osage orange, ebony, and yellow heart. The goal was not only to create the epic vessel, but to do it in original style not seen...

    USS Enterprise TOS filming model PRE-restoration pics here.

    Was going through my harddrive and found some pics I snapped of the big E original filming model about 25 years ago - before the Ed Miarecki restoration - when the model was still hanging from the ceiling of the Rocketry and Spaceflight exhibit in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. I'm not...

    1:18 TOS Bridge/Display Build

    Over the last little while I've been putting a lot of thought into displays for my props, toys and collectibles. The success with the Shadowbox I made recently gave me the inspiration on how to resurrect a long dead project with a fresh take. But the true inspiration to get off my butt and get...

    TOS Star Trek Corset

    So I wanted to show this off! Basically I was contacted by this guy who is doing/did some Jim Beam advertising stuff and he's trying to put together a spoof advertising for "Jim, Beam me up". He will be borrowing this corset and will be doing a photoshoot with it but I wanted to do my own...

    Star Trek Klingon Disruptor part *help!*

    Hi guys, I hate to come here with such a pathetic request but here it goes... does anyone have just a spare front emitter piece to a resin TOS Klingon Disruptor? I was just finishing up my resin TOS Klingon Disruptor last night, putting one more coat of silver on the front emitter and...

    Burke Chair tutorial for Star Trek TOS Bridge Chair

    anyone know of a tutorial for the Burke chair conversion to one of the bridge chairs on the Star Trek TOS ? Just purchased 2 of the Burke 115's off ebay and would really like to convert these myself. I think the upholstery will probably be the most difficult part and the triangles I will...

    Steve Neill Studio 1/2 Scale TOS Enterprise Buildup

    Here I go on my buildup of Steve Neill's excellent TOS 1/2 studio scale Enterprise. I can only do pictures right now. I'm not very far along right now, but I thought I'd post to keep me motivated and to help advertise this excellent model. The resin I'm using takes 24 hours to cure, so it...

    Star Trek TOS Photoshoot at Valley of Fire State Park

    Art Andrews and I headed out to Valley of Fire State Park this Sunday with our friend Jorge and did an amazing photoshoot showing off my Star Trek TOS Blue Dress from ANOVOS. It was a GORGEOUS day, the weather was perfect and we spent about 5 hours shooting in several parts of the park. We...

    New TOS Phaser Handle Colour Suggestion:

    I *believe* I've found an excellent handle colour! A solid coat of Rustoleum dark bronze metallic, then a very light coat of Rustoleum metallic charcoal, finished with a very fine misting of dark bronze again. Looks dark grey in shadow, but a bronzey aluminum in bright light. What do you...

    TOS phaser consensus question...

    Okay, I'm currently working on my AA/DS phaser, and it seems like the clear emitter *may* be a couple of mm too long. Richard Coyle blueprints say no. Screen caps from hero phasers say yes. Screen caps from midgrade "Cloud Minders" says maybe. So, a couple of mm isn't much at all in the scheme...

    Another Phaser Colour Question Thread...

    So, correct me if I'm wrong, but my research shows the P1 to be very dark gray, the handle to be black, but the gray of the body of P2 is in question for me. Some shots make it seem bluish gray, many exhibit a more medium gray (lighting must affect the look of the colour, obviously). My AA/DS...

    Quick, easy & cheap upgrade for your Playmates TOS communicator

    I have two, one I got off Ebay for $3.25 recently, the other from a convention back in the 90's, so I played with the cheap one & found that simply removing the belt clip (It screws into place from the inside) & painting the little faux holes with a Sharpie ultra fine tip black pen (I was...

    Enterprise Bridge (adjusted for DST action figures)

    I haven't collected Star Trek figures for a million years (well...mid-90's). I had purged all of the old Playmates stuff years ago, but with my apparently unending Star Trek kick, I decided to pick up the really reasonably priced DS two packs ($60 and change snagged the main crew minus...

    Hi, I am interested in buying AMT/ERTL, NCC-1701-A, MODEL KIT #6957 but I can't find any information anywhere on how the lights and sound operate, is it one of those ones where a light and sound sequence goes for a few seconds and then you have to press the button again or what, what I want to...

    Romulan Attack Ship Build

    Romulan Attack Ship I built this for Jm419's Kitbash Kontest. I read somewhere that In the original draft of Search for Spock the Bird of prey was supposed to be of Romulan origin, and I liked the idea of bridging the TOS Romulan Bird of prey with the Klingon. I tried to keep...
