Check out the New voyages, or Phase II on youtube. Specifically "In Harms Way" Toward the end has a lot of the old Joseph designs. And my good friend John Martinez actually build the model in Blender. I merely converted and retextured it. But thanx all the same!
I always preferred Okazaki's update of Franz Joseph's design. The three dishes making the front all flat didn't look all that aerodynamic. I know, they're in space and there'd be no wind resistance...but still, aesthetically, the Okazaki/Starfleet Museum version just looks a little better to me.
Yeah I knew about that reference and the ones in Star Trek 2 and 3(the ones on the screens in the background), however I was referring to the Franz Joseph designs appearing in the very least in a background role in the remastered TOS episodes.
Ithink I'll wait till he finishes updating the model before I do a conversion of it, I have a conversion of Dave Metlesits model that will do me for most renders at the moment. That and one I built in AC3D last year for a bit of fun.
