Filming model by thefirstfleet Filming model by thefirstfleet
Guess what I found in an old photo archive! A picture of the filming miniature used in that old show Starship Polaris. Sitting quietly in a warehouse or something...





Model by me

I love this render. I think like all art forms inspiration is a major part of it. What  a great idea. One of my new favorites, not to mention how cool this ship looks the render is awesome!

Almost looks like a drydock on Earth for a starship equipped for sea capability. All hands on deck!!!

Why do I get the feeling you'd love to go back in time and commission Matt Jefferies to make one. Also Comparing this with the studio model of the Enterprise which is Eleven Feet how long would you say the Polaris "Filming Model" would be?
Reply

thefirstfleet Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2016
Well, I'm  not the math guy here, but let's see:

The original Enterprise is 289 m long. The studio model is 11 ft long.
The Polaris is 229 m long. With the same proportions, the filming model would be 8,71 ft long.

(I hope I did the math right, I'm honestly really stupid at this :D )

A long time ago, I saw a book with some of Matt Jefferies' early Enterprise designs, and when I saw the Polaris for the first time, I thought it was one of Jefferies' unused designs. (Yeah, I think it's that good.)

I wonder if the old thing is still in that good of condition. Can only hope it ended up in a true collector's hands.
