Dad Builds Hyperrealistic Star Trek Playset for His Son

You're looking at a photo of the bridge set from the original Star Trek, right?

Wrong. It's a playset that David Weiberg built for his 8-year old son. Everything is scaled perfectly with the original shapes and colors. Even the console controls are accurate.

It's an amazing build for a child who is fortunate enough to be raised in the classics. He's become a fan of the original series and enjoys using his playset--along with his father's original series action figures--for imaginative play. You can see more photos at Instructables.

My 21-year-old granddaughter recently saw Star Wars--The Force Awakens. It was her FIRST Star Wars movie. I had no idea that my daughter had so terribly deprived her own daughter.
