Jared Wynn’s Star Trek TMP Thruster Pack Model

I wanted to share my latest bit of digital modeling with you.

I always wanted to model the Thrusterpack from Star Trek The Motion Picture. The model made by Apogee at the time of 1979 when they were helping Douglas Trumbull with the Visual Effects work is an amazing piece of modeling, in fact all the miniatures in the film were and are. The Thrusterpack though, from pictures I have seen is in rough shape.

The model itself is a neat little prop, and with the technology we have at our fingertips today, modelers are able to create or replicate almost anything with a good dose of kit bashing! For me I would love to 3D print this model, at the same scale as the original model someday. This was an interesting challenge, the only reference I could find were a couple of auction photos and HD screen grabs from the film itself. So in short a lot of artistic license was taken with many of the details. I built and rebuilt certain details in my quest to be as accurate as possible. The model was built in Zbrush and Fusion 360. 90% Zbrush and 10% Fusion 360.

I am currently available for contracting for modeling, sculpting and illustration right now.

Thanks,
