Default Trek TOS Heavy Personnel Shuttle

Well, with the Miranda done and just waiting on fundage to print it, I started work on something else. Seeing that Polar Lights will be releasing the old AMT Galileo shuttle, I thought that something similar, though bigger, might be nice.

Think of this as Galileo's big brother, probably 1/3rd to 1/2 larger. I'd really like to put the Galileo next to this guy. Its obviously still a work in progress. The ventral surfaces will be built out a bit, and the after opening will receive a solid bulkhead, perhaps with a fold down door like an APC would have.

Thanks for looking.

Bob

Hey ~ this is very cool! I just so happen to be working on a re-design shuttle for my Sentinel class cruiser. What program are you using to model this?

Thanks. I'm using Geomagic (formerly Alibre) Design. Given that the shuttle is mostly slab sided with little organic shaping, there's no need to pull out the 'ol NURBS based program.

What does your redesign look like?

I have not heard of that program before. For simple mock-ups, I'll use Google Sketch-Up. This is my very rough shuttle redesign idea for Sentinel, done in Illustrator. Still have lots of issues to resolve:

Sweet! I can see the family resemblance in the nacelles. The 787 nose looks great, too.

Geomagic is okay. It started out as Alibre Design and was targeted towards home hobbyists, and those wanting Solidworks type performance at a fraction of the cost. Fine Scale Modeler even did a write up of it. Since then, 3D Systems bought out Alibre and its sort of stagnated. Import/export abilities are pretty poor, and there's a sense that 3D is going to orphan the program, which would be a shame as its super capable when it isn't crashing. That's the other thing, they've damaged the program's stability, which is why I've been using Moment of Inspiration more and more; I did most of the Miranda in it, including the nacelles, rollbar and almost all of the surfacing and texturing.

I got the underside thickened and curved in profile to be reminiscent of the Galileo's underside. I also slightly lengthened the shuttle, and am working on the windows and hatches. She's coming along!
