be for I moved I had started to build the bridge of the defiant. I made my own defiant chair about 10 years ago but never did finish it. I got happy when I found out dst was going to release one and then so sad when they cancelled it . so I went back to the one I made. the one on the left is mine the one on the right is P.M. the base of the P.M. is longer but my chair is bigger. On the port side entrance/exit door you will see a star fleet weapons locker that holds 6 type 2 phasers. (tng/ds9/voy)

Wow, that is really coming along nicely! Excellent job so far!
It's so cool to see a brand new bridge being attempted. Can't wait to see it finished. smile.gif

Looks Great! I love the work you've got done so far.

Also I did the same thing with my Sisko couldn't stand him on the smaller body so he got Rikers. Seemed to fit better

Worf, that is one really sweet bridge you're working on there; keep up the good work. smile.gif I absolutely love the fact that you're building it out of wood (rather than cardboard,) and that you've managed to include the weapons locker. The additional attention to detail is always nice. In any case, you have an awesome bridge, and I look forward to seeing more of your photos. I can't wait to see when your bridge is finished. Now if only DST would take notes here; this is how a bridge set should look if any toy company attempts one ever again--no "play mats," no missing walls, but an actual bridge set. Again WORF22, keep up the good work. smile.gif

thanks man. I recently moved so I haven't had time to do much more then what you see in the pics but I do plan on finishing her up asap. I have a list of works in prog. that I would like to get done first and have bin like my Duras sisters, Nog, Kira in red,BLT. now that I have done figs I want to finish my BSG Viper & I need to put more fiber glass on my 302. she took some damage in the move need to build new wings. but as soon as my viper is done I will get back on the Defiant.

I have accumulated a ton of Lacars over the years so it was just a matter of importing them in to Adobe and scaling them. I did make changes to some of them, putting in what I wanted to see on the display. you can find Voyager Lcars online if you need them.

Just now discovering this thread... LOVING what I've seen so far. Looks amazing! Have you made any more progress since the initial batch of pics?

unfortunately the bridge did not travel well to the new apt. I think all but 1/2 a wall got crushed but the chair is doing fine. lol I am considering redoing it but my new apt is much smaller and I have about 5 (WIP) ships that are big so for now I not going to be doing much more then fixing up the chair so I can cast it I know some people would like one of there own.

I hope you continue on this project. Did you consider doing the "new" Defiant bridge that was seen in the last few episodes of the series? They added a security display that we see Odo manning in the battle of Cardassia Prime in place of the small situation table.

I'd also love to see someone try to do a DS9 OPS as well. smile.gif

I did but I like the commend chair consoles on the NX-74205 more then the ones on the NCC-75633.

if you lived near me I would help you build one.
