Well, those of you who know me, know this has been a long task. BUT, the "BIG E" is finally done. It's been a labor of love, and is great to finally see this big beauty done and on display.

I will also be making a table for it, and a huge acrylic 'cover' lid that will enclose it and keep it dust free. I also have to make a 'carrying case' to take it out for shows at some point. (If I can get it out of the basement.) I've run the lighting and engines for about 6 hours straight, and it keeps on going strong.

I'm also planning to make a 'control panel' with a TOS style bridge console to turn it on/off.

BTW, I've also started on the F/M Viper, a link is on my home page.

Cheers.

Sean that is absolutely gorgeous. Those pics look right out of the "Trials and Tribblations" with the crispness and how fantastic that model looks. Just fantastic.

Well done Sean.. :D This is also a testament to Gary Kerr's skill in documenting the original miniature. Is this replica "dead-on balls accurate" or what?

Congrats, Sean. Looks outstanding.. Great website, too - you've got some great documentation of the construction. So, are you relieved? Or, a bit sad? Both? :)

Best,

Great job. Keep Ed Miarecki away from that beauty. :)

(I just realized that his name may be pronounced Me-a-Recky.) :eek:

Very nice job.

Although there doesn't appear to be a lot of weathering on the secondary hull or nacelles, the weathering on the top of the saucer appears to be dead-on.

(Yeah, everybody's main complaint about the restoration of the 11-foot shooting model is that the weathering -- especially on the underside of the saucer section -- was way overdone. I'm sorry, but I don't see how Ed Miarecki can justify that harsh staining/shadowing pattern on the saucer. It just doesn't look right...)

I wonder, though... Are the nacelle cap covers frosted with the vane pattern like the original model's and do they rotate? The lighting pattern behind the caps seems "right," but there's no indication in the pictures of how else the caps are.

Congratulations.
That is just a beautiful piece of work. The model itself is top-notch and your assembly and paint is outstanding in and of itself.


I'd love to see it in person sometime. Let us know if you plan to have it anywhere public.

Well thanks everyone, your feedback is VERY much appreciated. Really enjoy seeing your responses.

I'll try to answer a few questions from above:

Nacelles 'fans' - They are definitely there, the camera though blurs them out.
On my page 2 construction, http://squaremodels.com/66enterprisepage2.htm, there are links to .mov files that show the nacelles moving.
http://squaremodels.com/images/fan.jpg is also a pic of the 'fans'.

Weathering - It's all there, the camera just faded it out. Subtle streaking exists on the secondary hull, engine struts and on the engines themselves.

Yes, I have started on Frank/Moe's viper - my homepage has a link.

Yes, this model will be on display. For sure, it will be at StarFest 2006 in Denver, and I'll be at WonderFest 2006 in Louisville.

Yes, I'm a bit sad. Used to coming home from work practically every day and fiddling with this. BUT, it's also fantastic to just sit back and watch this baby run..

Well, thank you all again for your comments and support.
