Just posted a YouTube clip on the latest progress on the Workbee 3D model I have been working on. Made some decent headway the past week. Only need to add one small warning label that appears on the top aft part of the chassis.
A little over a week ago, I received an item I purchased via eBay. It was the shipping container used for the United States Navy’s AN/SSQ-47B sonobuoys. Why you may ask? Because it is actually one of the most widely re-purposed real-world object used as a prop and set decoration within the Star Trek universe.
Been a while since I have posted. But been even longer looking for over a year now for the found item that was used to create the conical shaped material container first used in several scenes in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (TWOK).
The other day I cross-posted my piece about my work-in-progress digital 3D model of the travel pod door over in the Star Trek prop community at The Fleet Workshop. In the thread there that followed, Scott Fe asked some questions which lead to some more explanations about my travel pod door model exploration.
“Mankind will reach maturity on the day it learns to value diversity—of life and ideas. To be different is not necessarily to be ugly; to have a different idea is not necessarily to be wrong. The worst thing that could happen is for all of us to look and think and act alike.”
