just letting you no luc that my CR-90 that i was going to post (the one reffered to in rules of deckplan creation) was faded. aparrently bitmap "fades" the image if it is to large and i had saved my exterior and interior views on it. I have looked everywhere but i can't find my backup files. sorry to dissapoint but the entire ship was almost white. I guess we just have to learn these things the hard way



Lighning why don't you just show us what you have? I may be able to boost the colors on Paint Shop Pro. Please share!

Re: Bluescale Corellian Corvette WIP


After viewing your pics, you and I had the same idea that there is a side hatch which allowed a stair or loading mechanism to descend to ground level. The question then becomes... where are the landing gear? Any thoughts on that?

My best thinking would be to place solid immoble pads on the bottom engines, so that very near to their point of connection to the main ship they'd touch the ground. However, I don't think that matches canon. I need to go over the drawings again, though. It's possible that landing gear might be squeezed in between the engines, but that seems unlikely. Another place i considered is just fore of the circular (ventral) vents. This would require much shorter extension, and allow for retraction as well. There's plenty of space forward for another landing gear for the forward section.

I'm not sure my goals and desire to work on this project would ever extend beyond the general. I think I'd go nuts trying to work out every specific detail, and make it match the films. Just the huge wasted space of all those pointless corridors in the Tantive is enough to make me nearly go insane.

I've been thinking about the famous Pentagonal room, and the entire deck it's on, and the best idea I've come up with is that it's some kind of data center, an information hub for the Rebelion. I assume in a less modified version, the area would be configured more to something I'd find reasonable.

Just some thoughts.

EDIT:
Here's a chunk of the bluescale GIF, just showing the front of the engine pylons with landing gear location indicated in blue. If the pipes follow the same course on the bottome pylons as the top, the pipe would need to be rerouted slightly to accomidate landing gear as I discussed above.

 Well I know Frank will hate this(I do it because it aggrevates you FB emoticon ), but here is a screen capture from E3 showing the CR-90 at take-off.

Image

 This has been zoomed in a litle bit so it is slightly blurry, but you can see 1 landing gear on the front and three in the back that seem to come from in between the lower engines. this is the only shot I have found so far that shows the landing gear.

If you read Rob Brown's report on "Revenge of the Sith", you would know that ship is nither the CR-90 nor the Tantive IV. It has many difference from the ILM studio model we see in "A New Hope". Rob Brown's now defunct Tantive IV website also showed some prototype corvettes with landing gear. I brought these to Lucas' attention almost a year ago.

How is "Dark Force Rising" coming Grtak?

 I can't read a site which is no longer there or one I never knew about, that is part of the reason I wanted the CENTRAL ARCHIVE put in place. Knowledge is the hands of the few is waiting to be learned by the many.

 And I am finished reading "Dark Force Rising", and will post the info as soon as I am finshed posting the 40+ ships I have to sort through in "Heir To The Empire", which will be some time since I have only one full posting and a second partial posting.

Here are some screen caps from E3, a few show the landing gear. I'll let someone with real photo editing experience enlarge and sharpen. Maybe these will help you all determine if this ship, the CR-90, and the Tantive IV are the same/same model and assist with the landing gear issue.

Kenospan those are not pictures of a CR-90. They are not even close. The sensor mast and docking arms are against the engines like Troy Vigil's, and LEGO's, and a dozen other license holders' versions of the ship who draw the CR-90 wrong. WHY the ILM studo model was not scanned for Episode 3, like the Falcon was scanned for the Special Edition of ANH, and TESB is beyond me. Its not the same ship.

I have to agree, that is most definitely NOT a CR-90.

Re: Bluescale Corellian Corvette WIP


 Obviously you both missed what Lynn Lefey had to say yesterday due to the server problems so I will sum it up.

 She said(basicly) that we could not rule out that the Corvette from E3 was not a CR-90 due to the fact that CEC had many variations due to the modular design flexibility. I am sure Lynn can tell you the same in a more elegant fashion if nessacary.

And what you're not understanding is that the main fuselage of the ship from Episode 3 is too short. Plain and simple. The section of ship missing isn't modular, it is integral. You would literally have to cut the extra length off with a cutting torch and weld the engines to the rest of the hull again to explain the discrepancy. This is not a matter of modularity, it is a matter of two different hulls.
