WOOOWWW MAN! The attention to detail is amazing, but more than that, I love the thought and logical aproach to what you said is a "fist in class" ship. I agree with you completely, it would be very general in layout as the full potential of this ship is yet to be explored. Im sure pure science variants would have more science stations, border patrol variants would have a more defensive layout etc. I would love to see your Loknar, is it here on the forum?

Default Re: 1/32 Star Trek TOS Miranda Class Bridge

Here's something I've been thinking about for a while: What to do with the right side of the main viewscreen section? There's a secondary exit on the left...something lit and blinky needs to be on the right...

I studied the Reliant bridge and got to looking at those displays that were similar to main work stations, but had no chairs. Stations that are important enough to be on the bridge, but not so important that they warranted constant attention.

So - I played with some angles and came up with a TOS version.

Upper section of it will have a big square lightey panel, middle will have three of the small viewscreens, and the keyboard will have....well...a keyboard on it.

If you haven't come up for a function for it, you could look at the Maranda class desgin. Memory fails me at the moment, im not sure if yours includes the "busy details" on the bottom saucer like the Relaint did, but you could call this station someting to go along with something with those details. Aux deflector control, lateral sensor master control, or possibly a seccondary engeneering station. Like you said, while it is important enought to be on the bridge, it isnt important enough to be manned at all times, so it could very easily be a seccondary system, or a system that would only really need to be manned when the ship is at battle stations.

Yeah - there are a few details on the 350th, and that's a good idea. More to think about, and thank you


I did more work on the viewscreen section.

Left to right -

I did some framing in the secondary exit area. The penciled line shows where a food synthesizer will be. (Hey - the E had one in the Transporter Room...why not one on the Bridge?) I plan to model it Open, with a couple cups of coffee on a tray. Left side will have a small arms locker, similar to those in shuttlecraft.

Center - brass for the Alert light, Sensor Scan Display, and Viewscreen Monitor panels has been added. Open area under the viewscreen has been closed off and detailing added. On the lower part, there are two compartments. These are for emergency gear, survival suits, and the like.

Ship's chronometer will be above the screen. This is basically an enlargement of the chronometer shown in the remastered version of The Naked Time, showing Stardate and ship's time. Instead of the tiny little gauge on the Helm, I wanted it bigger and more prominent. A viewing of The Undiscovered Country made my mind up as to its location.

I'm not wedded to its design, I just made something up in Paint Shop, printed it out, and pasted it in place.

Right, the aforementioned console. The bottom area of it will have another emergency equipment locker.

I'm working on an LED chaser circuit for the lights under the viewscreen.

Dave, No worries on the reply time, the wait was well worth it

I love the progress you've made.

Please tell me the MTV logo is here to stay?!... If so, can i offer a suggestion, Make it a serious 80's nod.. add a John Hughes reference in there in the other screen ...I miss the 80's.

George

A few updates since the last time (time has flown!)

I primed and painted all the side consoles and installed lighting in the ceiling panels (no displays are lit as of now):




Bridge is populated. Thanks to Photoshop and Bill Krause and a trusty laminator I have 2D prints of the bridge crew:



Creative configuring on a DPDT switch:




....and we can go to Red Alert:



Speaking of wiring, I had to update it a little. All the major components, such as main consoles, viewscreen area, and door alcove, are removable so I had to figure out a way to unplug their wiring. I was using dollhouse plugs and receptacles. Good concept and size but they're worthless pieces of shit. So I went back to R/C servo plugs. I had used them in the 350th Miranda build and they work wonders.

So now each component has its own plug, and I made a 'bank' of receptacles:



Doors are on sliding tracks:




....and will open to a small corridor leading to the turbolift. There will be a ready room aft and maybe an airlock to port:




Lastly, I clearcoated and decalled the console panels and added bits of colored plastic behind the vents on the bottom of the consoles. I had them on my desk and sunlight hit the backs of the consoles just right. Light blocking still needs to be done:

Nice!

Light blocking of those lower console panels would be easy-peasy with aluminum tape.

re: the r/c servo plugs.... you can find them unassembled on ebay... in more than just the 3 pin variety. I have 2, 3, 4, 5, & 6 pin setups for some of my stuff.

search for "jumper wire cable housing 2.54mm"
