COLLUM: Well, the display case is very fancy. (Laughs) I call it the state-of-the-art display case. It’s a separate, rolling platform on wheels. So we mounted it here, rolled it straight in, fitted out this case… so these two panels here are actually hinged doors, it’s incredible. The hinges themselves, I was marvelling at; they’re works of engineering feat. It is not hermetically sealed, but it has conditioned air that’s being piped in here from a conditioning unit down in the basement. Dust is a big concern at the museum here, so this case is under continuous, positive pressure to make sure that air is flowing out. The air that’s pumped in comes in at perfect fifty-percent relative humidity, and a controlled temperature as well. TREKCORE: Did you build any particular accessibility into the model for future repair issues? COLLUM: Oh yeah. Originally, the bridge was secured with screws; we changed those out with just basically pegs. So I can reach over there and lift off the bridge section, and then key it right back on if I need to – so we can access all the internal lighting right through the upper bridge section. TREKCORE: That’s great. COLLUM: The lower dome, the cap at the bottom there, that’s held on with magnets – so we use screws that go into the wooden fixture, using the original screw holes, and then use some rare-earth magnets to hold it in place. You just stick it up there, and it just clicks into place. TREKCORE: Wow. COLLUM: Yeah, you really want to build it for maintenance, which is how it was originally. Same thing with the nacelles and the struts, all of those come apart. When we got the model, it had been secured with these HUGE carriage bolts, all that’s been done away with. We’ve actually taken it back to how it was originally, which was something that could be easily taken apart, taken out of the studio, and sent back to the shop for repairs or adjustments.
