Star Fleet Saturday comes around again...
This is 'Lamia and Makara' from the deviantArtist; hardbodies.
I like it that, even in 2019, people have been working away on fan illustrations based on Star Fleet.
Only question in my mind... In the words of Commander Riker: "One, or both?"
Star Fleet Saturday comes around again ...
Twitter user; rgm79kunio has a Dai-X, converted from 1:144 HGUC Gundam kits ...
While toytonyleung has a cool lineup of Star Fleet sofubi or vinyl characters.
Well, as you can see, this set of blueprints cost Â£4.95 back in 1983, but to get a set now costs you quite a bit more.
Thanks Dominique for getting me these.
Before someone asks, I'm not scanning all 6x ~A2 images. Think how long that'd take to stitch in Photoshop.
Anyway, the accompanying materials are uploaded here:
Infinity Magazine - SFXB Forum
I learned from SFXB's Andy T that Infinity Magazine have quite a few pages on Star Fleet in their current issue (24).
It also has a cool double-page poster of the battlecruiser and X-Bomber.
You don't have to go out looking for it at the newsagents. You can just order it from their site, or do what I did, which was: download the electronic version.
Here comes Star Fleet Saturday again ...
I came across a few images of the French comic books that I (at least) hadn't seen before.
They raised two questions in my mind:
1. why the owner decided to photograph them on top of a pile of wood
2. what those magenta enemy ships are - They never appeared in the series.
Thanks to my David and Linda for getting me the Emmette!
It completes my line-up of the OV-165 spaceplane and the two 'warp delta' ships.
Having a wild time with Operation Matriarchy,
I have wanted to play this game for â€¦ *years*.
This is the last game ever produced by the Russian studio MADIA, in 2005.
I don't know how Danielle and Dave got a sealed, boxed copy after all this time but â€¦ there we go.
I got it ticking under Windows 10 and it is running great now.
The gameplay is really smooth, the visuals and physics are fantastic for its age. The music and weapons are really excellent too.
Here's another view of the tactical Miranda.
I found the two outlines drawn on either side of a single page, for this little Miranda class battlewagon.
Now, if you wanna use markers to vamp up the outlines, then you're gonna destroy whatever's on the opposite side.
One answer to that, was to scan them on the V750 (which totally ignores even heavy lines on the other side of the page), print them in borderless 'photo quality' from photoshop. (The printer didn't do that great a job of matching the colours).
After that, you have the two outlines separated out, and you can faff on with them to the extent that you want, before scanning them *again* and 'doing the needful' in photoshop.
Idea is: It's a ship wrecked and recovered from Wolf 359.
During its rebuild, it gets piled high with TNG-era firepower.
