I've always loved the Gorn and thought they were under used. In my version of TOS, they're religious fanatics. The Gorn are a dying race, genetically spent, and on the verge of extinction. Faced with that, only religious radicals seemed to have the answers. (Think of them as radical Islamists.) Only their tech has kept them alive this long. Their main reason for attacking Cestus 3 was a prophecy of a new home world.
So my first 2 submissions to the board are hot Gorn babes!

Cue inevitable long winded discussion about:
a) No bare bobb b) Reptiles don't have bobb
TO answer in advance: those aren't bobb, that's just your dirty minds making stuff up, the fact that a bipedal reptile would evolve something that looks just like our pectoral muscles is purely a result of concordant evolution. They throw spears and use bows, so they have big chest muscles. Just like Arnie, he's got a lovely pair of sweater puppies but he's a bloke.
If i can say (you know, i'm the Criticism Device here ), while i like a lot the drawing as a ....drawing, i have some doubt about it working as a miniature.... i mean, a side view could be much more "simple" to be seen and understood from the other side of the table. I think that this "strong perspective" can be lost on a small object like a miniature....
Thanks, Paladin! Just so everyone knows, I haven't fallen off the planet or anything. The Tues after Christmas I picked up a temp job working 12 hrs a day M-F with 2 Sats so far. Add that to driving pizza 3 nights a week, and I haven't much time for too much of anything else. According to what they said when they brought me in, I'm about 1/2 way through the assn... but seems it that more orders are rolling in.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
