Some great shots there of the smaller details on the model. Thank you for those links.

I think it was wood with a tonne of auto filler and maybe some fiberglass or resins. I vaguely remember a guy who was planning to sell 30foot replicas had a whole article on the original models for TOS
tnks for the links prologic!

Not entirely wood, but a large percentage of it was.

Here's some other goodies I found a while ago.

Lots of shading for TV I notice.

That is some amazing reference there. Shows just how complex the paintjob really is.

I think the refurbished paint job is a lot more sophisticated and detailed than the original.

What I like about these photos is how they show the smaller details i.e. the design of the panels on the inside indent of the nacelles, the piece that fits under the intercooler at the stern of the nacelle, how the "space energy/matter sensors" are really just screw tabs to hold the dome to the nacelle, etc.

Here's some other up close details of a couple studio models.

1701-D Saucer section (four footer):
http://web.archive.org/web/200501041...age/1701D.html

K-7 space station made for DS9 showing shuttle bay:
http://web.archive.org/web/200503300...s/K7page2.html

Follow the links back to the IDIC page for LOTS more. Some links have more volume than others

Unfortunately the "Gem Kirk" items are gone. They were some decent closeups of props, models and behind the scenes stuff from TOS to Voyager. If you search for "Gem Kirk" and "trek" some of the small pix are still out there but the large sized ones are gone. Looks like AOL dropped their web page service back in November and they lost their work.

Nostalgic for me.....the guy had a great site.

Occasionally I just happen across this rare stuff. Not even specifically looking
and it turns up.

You'd think someone would make a book collection. The items are out there.
Websites are so transient. I've found some great info and the next day
it's gone...

Here's a good one on Galileo:
http://www.cloudster.com/Sets&Vehicl...GalileoTop.htm

He has some other good info there on show/movie models too.

The rusted Galileo does look like genuine crash. Reference material worth keeping for anyone wanting to produce a CG crash site.

I had never remembered the detail on the humandoid in this one on TV...

http://www.cloudster.com/Sets&Vehicl...ek_TOS_154.jpg

One of my favorite episodes- I'll have to check out my DVD version. Might make a good avatar

If they keep letting things rust with pigeons nesting I don't think we will have this backlot stuff around much longer.

Personally I think the Christy's auction ships/props/uniforms should have gone to a museum format like the captain's chair did - will those ships ever be seen again? I guess I'm a bit sentimental for it as I used to build models as a kid and am trying to get back to doing some modelling now (not me on a stage but actually building stuff...)

I would love to see the old girl back in action again. Wouldn't it be great, if after restoration they did some beauty pass filming of her in space again. I'm sure it would have brought a tear to Mr Scotts eyes.

Here's a small PDF book with photos of the Enterprise as it actually sits (as of March 2012), tucked away in the basement gift shop of the National Air and Space Museum. Lots of people really haven't liked the restoration job... not that it was talentless, but that the paint was inaccurate.

Ooops. PDF too large to upload. Oh, well, it's here: http://up-ship.com/blog/?p=14177

Some great photos in there Scott, thanks for that.

People can complain about the accuracy of the paint all they want to, but let's face, that model looks exceptional considering it's almost as old as I am and I'm almost 52!

Nice to see the port side. I don't recall ever seeing a shot from that side before. Not only can you see the hatch for the animation stand and power cable, but there is a lot of detail they just didn't copy from the starboard side.

Scott,

Thanks for posting the link to pdf of the photos taken on trip to Smithsonian. It reminds me of places or trips to visit in the near future.
