Hi All,

I picked myself up the Mezco Trek figures and wanted to make a partial bridge for them to be displayed with.

Recipe.

The bridge is made from foam board, balsa wood and plastic card. The captains chair is from Diamond Select Toys and I removed the control systems on the chair and replaced them with scratch made ones to match the rest of the stations control systems.

The Chairs are made using plastic card and the rails are made from balsa wood. The screens on the stations have been printed off the net and resized and then printed and glued into place.

I think the only figure Mezco didn't get right is Chekov, looks nothing like Walter Koenig.

PS. Where is Uhura?

Hey David Chekov and McCoy are customs I used the Mezco Spock and Sulu bodies and used the Diamond Select heads. I didn't have a Uhura at the time but I'm building a new bridge this year and it will have her on it.

So where is the guy in the red shirt?

Oh,right; he got killed.

Great-looking bridge mock-up. You really nailed it. All you need now are some miniature TV cameras and a couple boom mikes for the reverse angle photos.

Well then, I'm super-embarrased.

Still love your work and much better than anything I could do. Can't wait to see the next one.
