I will certainly raise a toast to my fellow resin heads.

The impulse drives were roughed into shape over the past weekend, I hadn't had time to post these until today. I think I'm finally happy with this placement and shape. This is one of my most favorite areas of any starship to indulge and embellish in detail. Automotive tail light design is a big influence in my concepts to the impulse drive. I poured over hundreds of photos and concept illustration art from the 50's - today to fuel my motivation. In the end, the ship designs itself. Simply cutting a section out of the primary gives me all I need to determine what the final profile shape of the nozzle should be.

Thanks! The row of window ports on the secondary hull - even with the impulse - is the engineering deck. The last pair of ports are off the main hangar bay.

How strong are the walls on the hollow secondary?
I love the impulse concepts!
A Boeing logo? Wut?

Major, major geekout over the progress, Buck. I can't wait to see the next installment.

Ha!! This is what happens when you miss staff meetings. Wait, I hadn't scheduled any…

Lego drydock Yes, this was an absolute necessity to align the primary and secondary hulls together as I epoxied them together. Good thing my son has millions of them.

Sentinel Builder's Plaque I printed this guy on photo paper so I could mount it inside right on the keel mast. I'm treating her like she's a real ship (in case this wasn't too obvious )

The secondary hull sides are about 1/4" think and I did thin them in areas around the window ports so she's pretty sturdy, even with the roof cut off. I did leave the forward cross-over section (under the bridge) intact to maintain that some structural integrity. There will also be bracing added once electronics and interior subassemblies are built and installed.

The Boeing Astrodynamics company is the lead contractor on the project.

Thanks Warrior!

Weekend Update:

The bridge module received the rest of her brass window frames and was notched to fit the secondary "hump". Still need to scribe upper dome details and drill out the nav beacon holes.





The lower primary dome was modified again after I glued the main sensor shroud in place on the secondary. It's just a tad too tall as I looked at her profile. So, I took a razor saw and cut off the lower collar, sanded another 1/16" off of it and will mount the actual domed part beneath the collar so it is more recessed.





Lastly, I scratched the "radiator" out of layers of .060 and .040 styrene to fit in the alcove above the main sensor shroud. This is the Close-Field Directional Sensor, a precursor to what was seen on the dorsal of the Excelsior and Ent-B. And, I just made all of that up.

Good zen.

If it's not pushing, deflecting, or blowing something up - then the easiest thing for a detail piece to do is "sense". Sentinel is all about SCIENCE. Galunga.

Very cool. Nice touch with the brass frames on the window ports.

...
Fantastic! Where do I begin?
1) The bridge module looks like a styrene kit piece... like I could swing by Toys R Us and pick up my own copy.
2) The lower primary dome looks like a lot of rectangles got filled it? Ouch. Accident, or deliberate?
3) The Close-Field Directional Sensor definitely looks like a cousin of the later Excelsior, which, as we all know, had an improved space-time driver coil that improved resolution over earlier systems. This is clearly an earlier iteration, probably lacking the KWILL and CONUS equipment, but still a leapfrog over the TOS ships. (And yes, I made that all up.)
