    Very nice result. And your custom figures are much better than the original ones. They look real in their setting.
    Great work! :Bravo:

    Ron Caudillo's T.O.S. Enterprise Bridge is in the Resource area. There is another file with more view screen pics too. It's also FREE! :)

    Ohhhh, I am so looking forward to this! Have you seen the Reaction Figures of Star Trek TOS? I was thinking they would look great in Ron's TOS bridge, with a slight re-scale.

    Awesome build. I don't think I have ever seen that model book before. It turned out great to be a punch out book product. Thanks for sharing.

    Very nice build! I just received one of the two I ordered, Rescaling will be a bit more involved, as it is a die cut model. It is now in the build pile.

    Oh, if only I'd stopped at just "re-scaling." :hammerhead:

    Cool to see this model built by another modeller. I had one in the early 90ties, but it got lost during a move. It was a fun build! I have another one in my stash, but I didn't build it till yet.

    Thanks for the mention!

    If you want, I can send you the original CorelDraw file (it's vectorized for easy resizing). PM me.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks, Ron. I hope I do it justice. I opened the PDFs files in Illustrator to work on them. My computer at work can do that without blowing the file up. Seems to have gone ok. I did a test build of the science station to see if my scaling worked with my ReAction Spock figure and it looks good. You can bet if I need help I'll come-a-runnin'!

    @Ron Caudillo, is there any other format that is vector, I don't have CorelDraw and .psd files give me problems. rON, Did you make other Starship Main Bridges?

    There used to be a whole slew of these but they went commercial, so I was told. I have them buried on one of the many hard drives I have.

    This is the only Bridge model I have designed.

    I can export the pages to various image formats (TIF, PNG, etc.) but I don't know which ones would be considered vector. I can also export as a PhotoShop PSD file, that may be a vector format?

    Best Regards,

    PSD Files can be easily worked with, they just to be flattened then saved as whatever extension you wish. You do have to have Photoshop CS3 or CS5, which I have both, forget about CS6 as that is a monthly pay for life situation. Ironically, I always felt those others were a derivative of yours, and the TOS Enterprise is the only one I am interested in. :)

    i am thinking in a whole other direction, the panels could be printed on clear plastic label sheets, and then adhered to gloss black thick cardstock with windows cut out, one white led per console could light them all up, maybe a layered picture box view screen for a 3-d effect with clear plastic over the front, slide in different scenes. lol im such a nerd.

    You not a nerd, you just think out of the box so much, it is the norm, and that's good! :)
