I'm currently heading up a project to create a prop replica of the Refit Starship Enterprise (Star Trek: The Motion Picture) that is 100% accurate to the model as it appeared in the film. I've had the opportunity to work with the designers, builders, and painters of the original, and have assembled an amazing team to help with the creation.
The project will have 3 phases:
Phase 1: Design the model in CAD in order to be certain that every detail is identical to the original model.
Phase 2: Building the prop replica based on the information from the original builders to construct the model using the same techniques and materials used in the original filming model.
Phase 3: Write a book about the project, from research to completion. Include a DVD with bonus material of video footage and images.
We will be launching our fundraiser for Phase 1 very soon. Learn more about the project both on our facebook page (in my links) and in the following video.
