Thanks to uraniun for this. The link contains a lot of behind the scenes photos of TOS.

This is a close up of the Romulan Bird-of-Prey! It looks magnificent:

Here's one of the Enterprise side by side with the SS Botany Bay. Man the studio model was huge.

That's a pretty big studio model. I like the detail on the Warbird- you can see the Plasma Torpedo launcher.

Awesome pictures! And yeah, that model was massive. No wonder it looked so good...

But what about this priceless moment? :mrgreen:

Pretty big model, yeah.

I like the Romulan/Klingon models--would love to hold them, and then fly them around making phaser noises. As would everyone else, I'm sure. Admit it. :P

The studio model of the Big E seems a bit unwieldy for that :lol:

Those are some great photos--I remember watching a live outtake of Nimoy with his son once, and this brought it all back.
