Re: Calling all professional kitbashers

OK now I'm really torn. I liked the first configuration because it was evocative of a bat'leth, like you said. But once mophius pointed out a way to make it look closer to the D-7 I started liking the wings swept back. Decisions decisions

Re: Federation Endeavor Class - SCORE!!!

It's a cool kit, the round saucer, the wider engineering hull, the downward sloaping nacelle pylons... The decal sheet is half used but I'll have to strip the paint and re-do her to give her justice. I'll try to post some pics tonight. I can scan the decal sheet for you, if you like. Congrats on yo...

Re: La Galería del Gato

Became the inspiration for prime universe USS Farenheit, using the Enterprise from the old AMT "Spaceship Set" (coincidentally, I bought that set out of nostalgia. I had built three of them during my first modeling phase back in the 80s). I made it 2500 by replacing the bridge with a 2500 ...

Re: La Galería del Gato

As you can tell from my TOS Intrepid and Reliant-inspired builds, I like to do "echoes." That is how the JJ-verse Gizmotron 2500 USS Kelvin...

Re: La Galería del Gato

And the Reliant also inspired this build. I had a 2500 PNT "Avenger" model kit that I did not want to build as another Reliant-type of ship. It hit me that I should build it as the original concept of the Reliant. Being an inverted version of an "Avenger," I went with the more po...

Re: La Galería del Gato

Building the Reliant led to my working on my first 3-D model, someone's concept of what a TOS Miranda would look like (sadly this one is no longer offered on Shapeways). While I was working on this I caught Dave Lewis' ("The Cat" on other boards) scratchbuilt TOS Miranda. The markings he u...

Re: La Galería del Gato

I'm going to stop going chronologically because I'm going into "fun mode." Straight out of the box 2500 Reliant from the PL movie set...

Re: La Galería del Gato

I should confess that the TOS E was not my first build. It's my second. That's because my first attempt was demolished by one of my fat cats. I decided to take the sad remains of my Enterprise and turn it into a TOS version of the Intrepid Class

Re: La Galería del Gato

Now, you'd think the next model that I would list would be the 2500 E-D and you'd be both wrong and right. You're right in that's what I should do. but because I will not be beholden to the alphabet (not to mention I'm still not done with the D), here is the E-E. The only attempt at making this some...

Re: La Galería del Gato

The 2500 Ambassador kit is weird. It is not accurate for the E-C. It's also not accurate for the Yamaguchi variant. It's a mishmash of the two. So I did the best I cohld to make it closer to the C: narroed the top half of the aft engineering hull, widened the fan tail and sanded off the lifeboats th...
