    This is the beginning of a series of sets, props and TOS based card models. Some are not textured, but for the most part can be textured outside of Pep and, or can be built as is. Many of these models are of no particular scale, but can be easily scaled to any size you want. Most have been sized to be economical to produce with minimum page number count and minimum of ink usage.

    Edit: I attempted to upload a couple of small untextured .pdo's but they were still to large....???

    The photos attached are for a TOS Ent WIP that I'm finishing the texturing on.

    Here's the first unfold and texture job on this series, it's the transporter console from Star Trek. I couldn't upload the .pdo, so I came up with a work around, I think...??? I'm upload the .bmp files as images, hope this works.

    Try this link, print to page and tell me what you think.

    Building 5 Large, Unscaled, Untextured, Template

    Just uploaded an untextured version of the building so that anyone that wants can use the templates and come up with their own version. The .bmp's are large, but you can scale them to print in any size you like.

    Edit to add new page link.

    More TOS WIPS

    Still working on the Big Boy, while I finish up a few of the low poly models. Trying to get the textures just right on the TOS Enterprise. Have a Mirror Universe thing going as well.

    I want to make the TOS Enterprise available in several different scales at the same time, as well as with more than one texture scenario.

    These are wonderful... I've been looking for just exactly this sort of thing for a number of years now... I'm most looking forward to the sets, as your set pieces are excellent. I hope you're planning on doing entire rooms like the transporter and sickbay. Rescaled, they would make fantastic dioramas for the AA action figures and the like.

    Thanks so much for doing this and I look forward to as many more you'd like to do! :thumb:

    Thank you Fiver. Yes, I plan on doing entire sets.I plan on working through each of the set pieces and then adding them all into an entire set file and doing variations of the different sets. Right now I'm working on the TOS Enteprise, the Transporter Room and a few low poly props. I'm trying to make the set photo realistic, using screen captures and artwork directly from the shows.

    While still working on the textures I took a little time to start unwrapping the Big Boy TOS Enterprise. Below are a couple of photos of the recent progress.

    Prelim Builds Templates and One Step Beyond :)

    I printed up some preliminary build stock and started building a couple of the models I've posted so far and went one step beyond the cardstock version on one of them.

    Thanks. I just printed a B/W version of the BC Deck and Bridge with lines as a prelim to find out how it fit and would look when done. I haven't printed any of the color, or fully textured parts yet. I want to see how things fit and what changes are going to need to be made. Additionally, I expect to add a good deal more detail to the dagger. Working on the Transporter Chamber right now. Have the unfold done and am adding textures right from screen grabs.:mrgreen:

    That's one of the best Enterprise Nil models I've ever seen! I love the texture on the Bussard Collectors. :thumb:
