Nimitz Class Chandley/Soyuz Variant (SRS Prototyping LLC)

Postby Gidiot » Sat Jul 08, 2017 12:26 am

So Scott over at SRS Prototyping is busy working on my Heavy Battle Frigate (even if those are sensors.... we've added a few other bangs for your buck so it's a Heavy Battle Frigate!!!). Again, the Chandley is one of my favorite ships from the old FASA games, but it still needed some updating. I found a few versions online that had the Miranda hull, Better, but even then I tinkered... and here is what I decided upon:

OK, I didn't have the Soyuz parts on her just yet... but this is close... I also proceeded to notch out the bow of the ship to add torpedo bays (and I had planned on Mine layer tubes as well... (those I'm hoping still end up on the rear panels.)
and this is where Scott took over... enjoy!:
