Can’t wait to see that! I’ve always had a weird obsession with that console and tried to figure out what the parts are. Of course, like most everything in the series, it went through several changes in its various appearances. The viewer appears to be resting on a padd?
In the Vian lab, with HD viewer attachment (sold separately):
Thanks for the update…I can’t wait to see it. So much has been done since I was there last.
great photos…so jelly of you guys for an awesome day of constructive nerdtrek behavior
You know, I’d love to see almost a build thread for the bridge stations, if anyone wanted to post more photos, methods, etc.
Yes,What you said! We need this- After all this is the biggest prop ever~
Is that the new helm in your photos?
Yes it’s an exact copy of the original that sits in the science fiction Museum. With help from Will Smith it’s an exact replica! Five of us worked very hard constructing this perfect replica of the original. Ed Miarecki is now building the targeting scope for it!
Take note of the new and improved stairs.
Tres cool! Someday…
Shadow puppet? Sorry, couldn’t help myself…
The pic doesn’t do those new stairs justice. They look fantastic, love that design.
it was fun to be able to help supply information so that the helm would be a perfect replica of the original. I only wish I could have helped build it! The scanner that Ed is working on is also an exact replica of the original and will have the cool folding motion that we saw when the original would rise. Interesting because the folding (or unfolding) motion is totally done with mechanical linkage. Looking forward to seeing the helm in May!!! It looks beautiful!
I’ve been meaning to ask you… is there any plan to make available the info you learned on the helm and command chair? I think it would be great if someone pulled all the experts together and released a new set of blueprints, like a new McMasters. It could potentially even be a licensed product.
Will is the man!
YES! New plans would be great… I’m currently sorting through all the command chair info that is out there, and it’s a challenge to make sure I’m using the most accurate data…
Continued skinning the last few remaining stations. One more to go… Then we start building the overheads in cutting in all the screens. To surprise guest from Fleet Workshop, Patrick Kane and Dave Harvey help me build the consoles. It was totally awesome working with you guys today!!
Really looking Great @JamesCawley
Dave and Patrick now know the pain these consoles are to make! They were knee deep in it with me today, thanks again guys…
Love it keep the pics coming pls!
Patrick and Dave are still driving home I’m sure tomorrow they’ll post some pictures that they took.
The two of them just walked around sad all day. I think they hated being there…NOT!
