Cool!!!aridas sofia said:Todd Guenther, Bill Thomas and I are in the process of building the entire B/C deck right now, including the bridge, based on the cross section I created from Jefferies' material. It's not ready to see yet, but it's certainly turning out to be some very interesting design work. Once it's done we hope to have a 3D walk-around like the strafe.com bridge above.
Is there a chance the decks could be drawn with the mesh drawn in, leaving room for wiring, plumbing, etc in each ceiling?aridas sofia said:Chuck,
The plans are based on Jefferies' 947' sizing of his ship.
The deck spacing was carefully taken from the two cross sections he drew -- for TMoST and the Phase 2. In most cases it scales to about one foot. That seems generous, given that the only time we ever saw a "ceiling" in TOS, the decking was mesh
I think this version will be similar to the CBS version, at least in its overall geometry. To my eye, their version looks much closer to mine than the original. The depth of the bay on their model is greater however, and would necessitate ignoring the pylon connection issue. I also think they have probably allowed their bay to "creep up" in size to allow it to be a little more spacious than the 947 foot confines would allow.Chuck_P.R. said:I understand your point of view.
If you are trying to adhere closely to Jefferies' cutaways you have little choice.
There is one point that I don't feel 100% clear on, though.
Is there a chance you might redo the hanger to match the new CBS remake of the shuttlebay? If not anytime soon then at some future point?
