Mark, Welcome back!

My condolences on your loss. My mom recently passed as well so I empathize.

I was thinking about your build recently and wondered how it fared. If I remember correctly, your E is a Northstar (DeBoer Hulls) Enterprise A Model, right?! This would make your drydock nothing less than MASSIVE!

Also, if my failing memory serves, you bought a track camera to re-create some of the TMP flyby sequences. Were you able to create any more?

I like your work and enjoy your updates, whenever you can post!

Steady on. We'll be here when you are ready.

Steve

 Thanks Steve, yeh it takes the wind out of your sails for a time but, Life moves on.

Yes my build is from a DeBoers Kit. The Dock measures 57" length 29" width and 22" Height. The E is 46" in length. I based the dock on a blueprint I found from an old mini-model madness diagram plus the actual filming miniature. It's a pretty close replica not including the armature for the ship.


Between my second move in 2 years and my mom's passing, I haven't had time to set up any new camera shots, but when I do I will not only do a ST:TMP recreation, but my own version of the flyby. This will allow anyone to see different views of the dock that have never been seen before including the starboard side and the top of the Dock. Hang in there.... I will be getting to it.


And thanks for checking in on the updates, I do appreciate everyone who follows my threads. It's one of my personal joys in life to be building these models.


Stay tuned for more.

Mark
