Jason of Star Command... Another one of those shows that is etched in my memory..
There are a few threads that were posted along time ago about ships and props. Im not sure if they are still on the board, but do a search.

Also, take a look for the show Space Academy, as they used alot of the same ship, and models.

Here are a few links that may make things easier :

Plans for the Seaker from Space Academy (It isnt a Starfire, but it is a start) : http://www.smallartworks.ca/PS/OtherKits/S...PosterPage.html

And the Seaker model : http://www.smallartworks.ca/PS/OtherKits/S...SeekerPage.html

I believe that the builder of these is on the board some place. Maybe he can help us out.

Hope that helps. I'd be interested in seeing what you come up with, and I think I have episodes where I can pull caps if needed.

There is a Jason of Star Command group over on Facebook. Maybe some good contacts if you have not seen this, or are not them.

(Yes, I know this thread is 15 years old but Tapatalk has decided to show it to me as a new thread.)

Very very nice Joe!! I can see ALOT of work went into this.
Thanks! ...it keeps me outta jail and all, so that is a plus! :p More seriously, I really thought about going full-on studio scale... but, half(ish) scale, in the 22 to 24 inch range is much more manageable. And while the decision to go smaller scale means that I have to scratch/kit-bash/substitute *everything*, it does make for a more manageable model, for display and going to model shows. Helps keep my wife happy, too! She's a geeky fan-girl (we met at Constellation '85, honeymooned at Worldcon'86) so she's actually supportive of my modeling; she was looking at places in the house where it can be displayed when completed!

Thanks for the kind words! I am currently caught in that model builder's dilemma: go with incomplete references, or, plow on ahead full speed! I've had an amazing amount of help from several folks; which, inevitably, equals go back and re-build! Because, other folks have given greatly of their time, so, I feel compelled to do the best I can!

I actually need to start a build thread over in General Modeling, as my model, when complete, will be 22-inches long, and the studio-scale build was 48-inches long. And it will help me stay motivated to get this beast done! :p

Don't let that "lack of reference" be a "dilemma". You've seen what I'm doing and I don't have any reference OR skills and it ain't slowed me down none. You can't fix NUTHIN' I can't tear up. I got a scraper.

You just don’t see many asteroid ships anymore. There was a nice Filmation cartoon called The Young Sentinels that had a moon-ship.

Ease Owyeung did the miniatures, and he is at the University of Arizona’s Academy of Art…aptly enough.

I bet he has them.
The landofnod.blog has a page called “The World of Star Command”.

Do the Dragonships and Ouamuamua next.
