    There's a photo I've never seen before on page 237 of Volume II of Marc Cushman's "These Are The Voyages" of the unfinished side of the model with all the electrical cables hanging out. It says it's from someone named Bob Olsen. Not sure if it would be cool to scan it and post it here (since it's from a new book, as opposed to some old thing that's no longer available), but if you all are as big of Star Trek geeks as I am, you should probably just buy the books.
    I think it would be fine if you put in a watermark claiming the source.
    It might even stir up enough curiosity to encourage someone to purchase the book!

    Probably better to buy the books. Besides, there are other sources for that particular view. I've seen it. It wouldn't surprise me if the Post #1 already has a link to such a photo.

    I thought you guys might like seeing a slightly more fleshed out version of my reverse engineered Jefferies plans...


    The changes are mostly cosmetic, extending out the information implied by the segments of the plans that are available. The base numbers are the same as they've been since I first did this back in 2007.

    The 11 foot model was a 4x build of these plans... with a number of changes that were introduced between the beginning of November of 1964 and the time the model was finished at the end of December.

    Anyways, just thought you guys might get a kick out of it.

    Some more information from the NASM. Some interesting tidbits and a great x-ray view of the nacelle

    You can see the hole drilled into the front of the nacelle that originally powered the front bussard collectors. This was drilled away from camera so that the wiring couldn't be seen on screen. I sure would love to have ALL of the x-ray images from the ship!!!

    I'd like to see the saucer guts too!

    Are those the original motors? I am thinking so.

    No, they are not the original motors.
    The center shaft is offset from the motor body, and the motor isn't a face mount motor. It has screws going through a front plate to support the motor.
    Which contradicts this motor.

    This one is face mounted(from the front) and the motor's shaft in on the center line.
    This is the closest match I could find(surplus).

    The motors are just left of the light bulbs.
    It's obvious they were replaced. Why could be anyone's guess, most likely they burned out.
    At least I hope that was the case. Since we have seen other odd things with the restoration, Nothing would surprise me.

    Is there any pics of the old control box?

    The Udvar-Hazy center is having their open house Saturday, and the Enterprise is listed as an attraction. This may be a chance to see the model disassembled.

    Now that it's officially announced as not me, I am VERY happy to announce I was in the running for this job for most of last year, and ultimately lost the bid to a team that I would be happy to lose to, every day of the week.
    It was an honor to be asked to bid, an honor to get as far as I did (I was just told by Gary Kerr that in the end it was between myself and ILM!!), and I am eager to see the Enterprise restored, in all of her glory later this Summer.
    I want a time machine, to go back to 1979 and tell younger-me that one day I would be considered alongside ILMers to restore the original Enterprise model for the Smithsonian. I cannot think of a cooler thing.

    Wonderful time at Udvar-Hazy today! I'm absolutely exhausted right now, but I'll post my Enterprise porn shots tomorrow. They are really doing incredible work, and they're taking her back to August of 1967, when the very last modification was done to her for The Trouble with Tribbles, which was the inboard starboard nacelle detail for the opening shot.

    Don't believe a word of what Paul OIsen says in his Enterprise book about this team. These guys are all-stars.

    Jason, congrats on being in the running! The nomination is the award, as they say.

    In other news, spent some more quality time with Greg Jein's mothership. I found the TIE fighter, the VW microbus, and the cemetery, but the mailbox and submarine continue to elude me. Bastards!

    Okay, folks! As promised, here are the (usably non-crappy) pictures of the E that I shot yesterday at Udvar-Hazy.

    Link to Entire Photobucket Album.

    And here are a few choice shots from that album:
