David Weisberg has created a fantastic Star Trek playset for his eight-year-old son.
Weisberg did so using actual blueprints for the bridge set. “This project started when I found my old Star Trek TOS Playmates figures,” he said. “I gave them to my eight-year-old son who had become a fan of the old show. He began building simple cardboard play pieces. Inspired by the clean wooden design of some of his other toys I set out to design and create a modular play set that he could use to assemble various rooms aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise. I wanted a set that could break down and store easily.
“After doing research I found some existing blue prints of the bridge. I scaled everything to match the size of the figures.”
And how did his son like the playset? “He has already asked how soon he will get the rest of the ship,” said Weisberg.
