A brief look at several ongoing projects. Many of you have been following my projects for years, and although I haven't posted anything lately you deserve to see some progress!
About this creation


First of all, the final component of the TOS Enterprise, the engineering or secondary hull. As you can see the basic dimensions are fixed and much of the hull is finished. The navigational deflector is done, and I am filling in the gaps around it. The hull sides are also done, with final window placement and deck positions. The tapering hull does present some challenges, however, as the top and bottom also have to come in at 4º, and I haven't figured that out yet.



The lower hatches are ready. The yellow circle is the antimatter pod loading/ejection hatch. After that is the warp core hatch, a cargo bay (as seen on screen in the remastered episodes), and finally the tractor beam emitter.



I redesigned the F-class shuttle once again, making it even more compact, although it is still a tad too big. The interior set was considerably larger than the full-size prop, making the dimensions difficult to ascertain. In this shot we can see how cramped the landing bay is – it will be a real challenge to get everything in as seen on screen. Thankfully the ship only carries four shuttles.



The next major project in the works is the K-7 Deep Space Station. The hangar module is coming along nicely, with this three-deck slice of the landing bay. I am still finishing some rooms in the corners, including the stairwell which runs through the entire module.



There will be three more decks below and two more above.



Landing bay 2 interior. On the back wall there is supposed to be a sign that says "Welcome to K-7. Now go home!"



I have also continued tinkering with the refit Consitution class. The saucer will definitely be the next thing you see. Here is the distinctive window pattern from the saucer rim...



...and the larger windows for the rec deck, seen in The Motion Picture.



I also did a little of the interior, just to figure out some things.



I already have a variety of copy-paste elements to use, and if you look carefully towards the back you will see a typical RCS thruster, and in front of that a phaser bank.



I also realized that the Vulcan Shuttle is actually NOT the same as the shuttles we see in the Enterprise hangar deck. Andrew Probert always meant for the design to have a smaller variant, more in line with the scale of the original series' F-class.



Like the old shuttle it has a single side hatch for planetary egress.



The bottom lacks the attachment points for a warp sled. A standard docking port is flanked by impulse engines.



Inside, the cockpit is modelled in the same period style as the Vulcan shuttle and travel pod.



A new chair design fits easily within the double hull.



Another nascent project is the Voyager Aeroshuttle. We never see this on screen, as the Delta Flyer was introduced instead. The Aeroshuttle, launching from underneath the saucer, was too similar to a scene in Insurrection the same year. Interestingly, the design is based on the standard Runabout, and was meant to use the same sets, which is where I got the idea.



Finally, a non-Star Trek project! This one is a little larger than Minifig scale, in order to get all the details and features in that I wanted. But you'll have to guess what it is!



Another shot of a distinctive element that might help you figure out what it is.



Another mystery design – still needing a lot of work though. But there should be enough already to tell what it is!



If anyone can point me to set blueprints or exterior elevations, I would totally design this in its entirety.



Finally, a little mash-up I like to call, "Intersection." I hope you enjoyed this update, and thanks to all of you who have been commenting and liking!

Quoting Kurt's MOCs An excellent collection of projects and explorations. The interior design work is very well done, especially the curved interior hallways. I can't wait to see the final Constitution class completed, especially if you do the refit from the Motion Picture (my personal favourite version of the Enterprise). Is the mystery project the moon bus from 2001: A Space Odyssey? If so, when will you get to the Discovery??
You got it, it's the Moonbus! I want to tackle some smaller ships from 2001 before I do the Discovery.

Quoting killswitch95 [SNRK] I see you've been burning the midnight oil as they say... I think that's the Jupiter from Lost in Space maybe?
(Or rather, igniting the midnight petroleum.) But no, it's not the Jupiter.
