Makes me think of all those grease-monkey cheesecake calendars from like the 30's and 40's with the pin-up girls.  `Petty girls` I think were several of them.  I say grease-monkey because that's where I remember seeing them first, as there was this full-service station/garage in town across from the hardware store.  It would have been either like '68 or '69, so I was 4 and 5 at the time.  I think the Ben Franklin Five & Dime also in town had a couple posted in the back half of the store.

This is absolutely gorgeous! Clap  Please, could you make a 4-side drawing with view of the shuttle bay, impulse engines and an actual Star Trek bridge (instead of that car cockpit) aswell?!?
I would love to have that made as an actual model then sitting on my desk, with real car finish, illuminated glas and polished bronze metal parts etc.,  or at least make it in 3D to look like that!Love 
That would look so rad and elegant!Heart  Definately a +fav !

I have a friend already working on a 3D version using reference images I've supplied of 60s cars.

Saw this on HobbyTalk.

VERY cool take on the Gray Lady, Matt!

(You've got the Star Trek Fans on Hobbytalk trying to figure out HOW to build this in model form! :) )

Fave. (But thats a given here.)

Wallpaper, please?! :D

I'd start with some 1963 Thunderbird parts for the engines and then crapload of bondo! Can you send me a link to the forum thread?

Yep. [link] :)

You can practically hear them cracking their knuckles and salavating...

"What kits will I need and HOW do we WORK this?!"

You've created a monster! :)

Wait'll one of them sees your BRIDGE! :D

I see you guys are already on top of things. Just keep everything mid-century modern if possible and you can't go wrong.

I'm PROBABLY the ONE modeler there that's just watching & reading because he has nothing to show. :(
It's VERY rare when I can focus enough to finish a model kit... :(

(I've got WAAAYYY too many interests. My muse is...overloaded...! :) :( )

But I'll be interested to see what magic they can come UP with!...And I'm SURE at least ONE with try the Bridge! :)
(I actually prefer YOUR bridge over the original! It looks...cleaner...somehow. :) )

TRUE...and it ALSO DOESN'T look like it was sponsored by the Apple Store...!
(I'm lookin' at YOU, J.J. Abrams!!! :( )

That's BIG win for everyone on board! :) :P

(I'm sure your Engineering [if/when you get to it] wouldn't look like a Budweiser plant, either! :) :rofl: )

Good lord, that's just beautiful!

I truly wish you would make blueprints for this. The sleek design combined with the muscle car elements and the original design of the enterprise make for a truly retro-tastic ship!

That's a much nicer redesign than the awful J. J. Abrams version. You've captured the elegance and sleekness of Star Trek technology in a way that the clunky, chunky Enterprise from the new movie did not.
