You can see the "secondary" hull (Galaxy after cutting the aft part/pylons for a Nebula project) and the 2 pieces from a Ent-B secondary hull aft section: I will try to fit these pieces (and a sheet of styrene in between) for the aft phasers and torpedoes launcher.

Did you notice that the curvature of the bussard collectors almost match the leading edge of the Sovereign saucer ? The forward centering pins are in perfect position as well:

The Dreadnought is supposed to have multi-vectors attack capabilities so the saucer will get its own warp nacelles. The aft of the nacelles will be shortened so they don't extend out of the saucer, the rectangular opening (where it was supposed to connect to the pylons) will receive additional blue cooling grids).

another WIP: the Supernova class attack cruiser

I will have to shorten the secondary hull by removing the center section. Thus the pylons will be closer to the saucer. Warp nacelles expected: MVM 505 (something else to order .... :oops: ). I will also remove the Captain's yatch.
The saucer is an OS Norway saucer.

Edit: just finished to remove the yacht from the sensor trench (without damaging everything around), now need to assemble the nose but, of course, the halves don't match perfectly, everything is warped :pullinghair:

so many projects (and my putty is too much old)

I tried to mix some glue with the putty but, strangely, it makes it less adhesive so when I remove the masking tape, it peels off (see the Galaxy saucer).
Now I directly apply the putty, then I drop some glue on top to shape it a little bit before sanding.

I really like this uncommon design.

EDIT: ok, it's the Douglass, thanks Del, unfortunately in 1/1400 scale, but who knows ? if re-issued maybe a multi-scale version with 1/2500 decals is possible ? :drool:
