More on the ding doing bridge

image image image image image image

A bit more done today on the bridge. This is hard work and slow. I didn’t like the consoles just be a transparency like the 1/350 builds I have seen. They are suppose to be little lighted buttons. So I cut little plastic panels, drilled holes through them and placed very small fiber optics.
I took pictures with and without the dome. There’s a piece of annoying hot glue webbing in there which is that white thing you see. Easily removed. Still along way to go.

That darn bridge

As usual the iPhone over exposes the panels and lights they arn’t this bright. Tomorrow I’ll have it all tiddied up and take some pics with the Nikon. But this will give you an idea. It’s just a test fit. And yes I removed the dome because the iPhone tends to focus on the dome and not through it. The dome looks fine in person.

SNG Studio …great day

We had a great day shooting with Uncle Ted and Modelman Tom. We finished the last of the live action and tomorrow I’m cutting all of it together to get rid of that gapping black leader of scenes missing. Thanks so much to Ted and Tom for such a great day. I’ll be cutting the real trailer next week to because we are finally nearing completion.

While I waited for them to get to the studio I got a chance to do a bit more on the painting but this darn iPhone camera just washes it out and you can’t even see all the fine little stars in the field. I should have it finished and will use the Nikon to get some better shots. Moved the moon and put it in the right place and started the Milky Way which looks so bright in these pictures but is not.

SNG Pictures from today 5-19-15

I had another mixed day. We are shooting tomorrow the last of “Martians Attack SNG”. Lots of scenes with “Uncle Ted”.
Now I can finish the film. What will be left are lots more effects shots but I have that covered. Within the next month I should finish and move on to “Reach” the next film.
So I worked on orders I got this week for a Cochran and a Spock Bust. I have lowered the price on the Cochran statue as they are unsigned and if you want it signed I’m sure if you contact Doug he will be happy to sign them. I use to make trips into town to see Doug and get things signed but that has become increasingly difficult with both our busy schedules not allowing us to sync up very often.
The Spock busts are on a resin marble looking base now and only offered in bronze. If you want either one of these items from our store go to our website. The Cochran statue is now 600 plus shipping. We appreciate very much Doug allowing us to make these from his original screen used piece.
I also did some more work on the slot car body that can be seen in tonight’s Seflie video I’m about to post.
And I have started painting again. Those of you that watch the show know about this but tonight I’m posting the in progress painting called “Reach”. There is still a lot to do. I haven’t added all the stars and the Milky Way. Lots more detail to come on the astronaut. The one thing I got wrong and will change this week is the location of the Moon. Guess I was tried but of course you guys know where it should be located and at the appropriate angle. Right? ;) I will be doing a lot more space paintings from now on, by hand, in acrylic and now airbrushes used. And some of them will be for sale. Mary is painting too and you can see here work in tonight’s video seflie.
More tomorrow and another seflie from our last live action shoot. Thanks for all your support for our studio. We will be making lots of programming and more Sc—Fi space movies to come and your constant support is what makes it happen.
