Postby Jon Kunatz » Mon May 11, 2015 9:47 am

Attempting a scratch of a trek shuttlecraft. The plans can be found on SSM, Clyde Jones tutorial on shuttle making...go find it.

Its an interesting challenge,...yeah its loaded with frustration....but its also fun. And Ill eventually end up with something unique.

Very nice! You've given it loads of detail

Many enjoyable details.

wait, so this is a TMP-era custom,
one of a kind,
awesome shuttlecraft?
(bridging the gap between TMP and TNG, the Ent-B through Ent C "Lost Era")
neat!
Look at the details here, its incredible :D

Will the kit be lit internally?
how will the final model be displayed? - a plinth, guide wires, some clear plastics, in 'landed configuration'?
What paint scheme will this be destined for?

And,
thanks for the cryptic handy link for some pepakura/papercraft plans,
(its part of the fun of the hobby, to research and find stuff along the way) :D
it means folks at home can take a stab at this custom too

(what scale is the AT-RT in the background, and did you scratchbuild that yourself? its AWESOME!
the folks on Bloomilk and Lead Adventure.de will love you for sharing that |and any other SW related stuff you might have| )

The shuttle is just something ive been wanting to do for a while now. Yes Id agree its a TMP era shuttle---bridging the gap between TOS and TMP eras. The craft is not 100% accurate. I just build it to the materials I have on hand. I dont even have a decent spare parts box....I lost mine to some...issues a few years back. I still need to add pilot seats,...im debating ejection seats or scratching them...i think scratching them would be more consistent.
As for decals,...I may need to have JTGraphics make me a set for this thing, Ill probably call it shuttlecraft Geronimo.
Im not planning on lighting it,...im inexperienced in that area. I think ill have it on a diorama where the crew is surveying a strange planet....hopefully.


As for the AT-TE----Its the revell snap kit....under new management. Its not a bad kit, but it is over simplified and way to freakin small for my tastes. But what do you want for 20 bucks.
