Ok, before I commit any time to this, I want to put out some feelers and see how much interest there is in cooking up some proper, accurate plans for the Oberth Class (and YES I am talking about the Grissom design, deal with it!)
After a quick read through Bernd's Oberth scale article I can see that several of the problems he's highlighted stem from inaccurate schematics from both the encyclopaedia and the Fact Files.
So what I'm after from you lot is any reference shots you can find of the miniature (particularly BTS shots) as after a good 30mins googleing, i can only find a handful of usable photos and most of them taken from the same angle.
This will be ongoing, so I'll post my first WIP as soon as I can gauge what the level of interest is going to be.
I know this sort of thing usually goes in the Design board, but I kinda want this to be more of a technical exercise than an artistic one.

It would be nice to get accurate schematics of the Oberth. I don't see why anyone would oppose your idea.

It's not opposition I'm concerned with, so much a as lack of interest.

Or interest and lack of time.

Rev, as long as you're interested, that would seem reason enough.

I think I have a few good shots at home somewhere. I'll try and dig them up.

*whispers* what about deck plans for the antares?*

I'd like to see your take on the Oberth. It'll be interesting to see your solution to the whole pylon-turbolift issue.

Ok, this is what I've got so far.

...and this is mostly what I'm going on.

Aban - In the words of the beardy bloke from Master & Commander (which I happen to have on in the background) "which it will be ready when it's ready". Plus I'm having enough trouble finishing off the Deneva deck plans and that thing only has 5 decks!

B.J. - The answer is much simpler than most think it is. Hard linked transporters. Job done.

Another shot of the Vico.

 -

Somewhere I have a much bigger version.

And I know there are loads of photos of the proper Oberth model somewhere on flickr from when it was auctioned, but I can't find them now. Some were posted in another thread quite recently.

How big was the model used for the Vico? The same size as the original Grissom model?

The Vico schematics appear to show decks in the pylons.

Rev, I think you've already got all the photos I have, but I'll take a look.

There was a top shot in a recent thread here, but I'm too lazy to look for it.

As I remember it, the model was not much more than two and a half feet long, so probably the same size as the one seen being held by the effects crew in that photo up there. I wouldn't be surprised if they just used a mold of the original model.

Rev, somewhere I have some orthographic views of the model from ST3. It was part of a trading card set I think. I will try to find them in the next couple of days, scan them and post them.
