Axanar 16: Just Beam In the Carpet / by Trek fm

Modeling the Ares.

Seeing your favorite ships on screen is wonderful, but being able to build them yourself, bringing them to life in 3D, is even better. In this episode of the official Axanar podcast Robert Meyer Burnett and Alec Peters are joined by Dennis St. Pierre of Starcraft Models to learn about the manufacturing process of the Ares garage kit, how Dennis first encountered Axanar, and plans for the Klingon D6 and future ships. Alec and Rob also bring you an update on the new studio space and plans for renovation.
