    Hey all,
    So, I present to you my latest model: the Nomad probe from Star Trek: the Original Series. I've built HomespunMagixx' model of the Nomad as seen in the episode, but so far, I haven't found any models of the probe before the Tan Ru incident (to be frank, I think the probe seen in the episode is Tan Ru possessed by Nomad...)
    Anyways, I decided to design my own model of the spacecraft, using a diagram screencapped from the episode, and some photos of Paul Newitt's model as seen on the Enterprise episode Deadstop. http://drexfiles.wordpress.com/2009/04/14/nomad-the-incredible-journey/

    The model parts are just about done; all I need to do now is testbuild the thing and post some photos of that as well.

    Enjoy some screenshots of the completed parts:

    It's looking good so far, Bryan. One more I can take out of my own design queue.

    Nomad

    I've often wondered why so few models include building instructions.
    I often find it difficult to figure out what a part is supposed to be, or sometime I know, but can't decide how it's intended to be assembled.
