MOS TOS 66 inch Enterprise update

Get this all to fit in there and Jim you know meant losing even more AFT support. I’m lost everything right up to where the nacelles plug in. But the AFT hull is very strong so I don’t see a problem.
Tomorrow I’ll get the observation corridors that look over the bay in and lighted. There’s a few more over hangs to add with windows but I should be able to finish that off tomorrow.
It’s iffy at best to get the doors to open and close. This was a TV show model and in the real world it will be a stretch. There simply isn’t the room. Maybe a winch servo. We’ll see and I will try but I’m pretty sure it will be a no go. Maybe not.
More tomorrow.
And for those of you just tuning in it is the same model as in the picture above at the head of my page. That’s our show room at the studio. This model is being made from my molds I made 3 years ago off my scratch build. http://sneillfx.net/page5
We are excepting contributions toward this build since we are building it for a non-profit museum, The Museum of Science Fiction.
You can have your name on the dedication plague and if you contribute 100 or more a small cut out photgraphic figure of you on the ship.http://www.steveneillsgarage.com/donations66-tos-museum-of-…

Thanks so much to all of you that have contributed so far.

    Of course, the doors never worked on the show model, that’s why we only saw them working from the inside. Getting the doors to work on the miniature bay set was a heck of a lot easier than getting them to work on the 11-foot model. The ones on the refit didn’t even work. When they “opened” in ST5, that was an enlarged aft section of the ship.

    Anywho, the bay is looking great so far. 😀

    I have found using those spray cans that if I put them in hot water and when the paint was warm it sprayed much better.

    I Would like to try and use an airbrush for that primer, but HOW do you get it out of the can. If I just spray it out it is slow going and the pressure causes the paint to spray all over. It would be nice to see how you go about doing it.
