Franz Joseph's Enterprise

A quick build I did in two days: the Enterprise, as depicted by Franz Joseph Schnaubelt's classic blueprints.

Imagine it, guys: the man had no internet, no graphics software, no tons of reference. All he had was screencaps and his imagination to fill in the blanks. His Enterprise is off on all too many levels, but still a classic, lovely interpretation.

Design by Matt Jeffries, as interpreted by Franz Joseph Schnaubelt

good job, although I like the torpedoes on the bottom.

Gorgeously done. I like the blue glow warp effect added to the inner nacelles. The original series may not have had it but it makes perfect sense to retrofit the effect given the more contemporary style of giving a blue glow fore warp engines. I think I'll paint my 1/1000 kit of the TOS E to have that effect.

Again, beautiful work.
