Okay then!



The shroud master continues to develop as I carve oval rings into it. This proved easier than attempting to scratch them out of styrene.

How do you make the neat oval carvings? Lathe?

An ellipse template, placed on a block of the urethane, was used to trace the oval outer shape. I then placed it in a miter box and trimmed as close as I could get to an oval cylinder. A hobby rasp filed the outer shape smooth. For the inner rings, the same ellipse template provided a guide to trace with a fine needle file. After getting the groove started it guided itself as I continued to scribe deeper into the block. This was repeated on the other inner ovals as well. The sides were beveled too.

*tips hat* Thanks kindly for the education.

What was the verdict on the "Coast Guard" stripes on the sides of this boat?

Here's a quickie Sentinel Program Development Team logo just issued from the Design Bureau. Stickers and patches are now showing up on uniforms and spacesuits all over the Yard:

You're very welcome. I'll try to take more pics of the progress rather than simply finished shots of each part, if that is an interest.

The jury is still out on the "Stripe" decision but we've got lots of time before that option needs addressing. I like the idea but I think once we get into the painting stage I should be able to comp some photoshop mockups to see what it will look like on the model itself. My guess is it may look better as a subtle shade of the hull color. I can't wait till we get there!

While Sentinel is a late TOS-era starship, I have to remind myself to infuse some design detail elements towards a TMP look. I don't want the hull to be completely devoid of interest but at the same time, she needs to look 1960's. With all that in mind and armed with a collection of reference pics, one of these detail areas ripe for cosmetic surgery is the "Space Energy Field Attraction Sensors" or SEFAS.



These grills sit on either side of the navigation deflector mount. Originally, the plans I drew included standard flat TOS style panels. Just for fun, I began sketching some optional ideas on what I could do with this. One of them involves a slightly recessed channel with raised grills combined with a TMP-style rounded sensor embedded in the rear of the inset.

Nice concept. You can't go wrong with adding tmp era flair to certain areas.

I'm partial to TOS, or as close-to as possible. Maybe halfway between the Sentinel line-art and the new pencil sketch.

Also: in the reference pics, what is #5? (It looks kinda like the old Gabe Koerner reimagining from a few years back...)
