Klingon F5 Frigate (my take on it)

Postby Rigel » Thu Nov 30, 2017 9:10 pm

I'm just starting to assemble things after a week of cutting and shutting. Pictured with For an old D7 model for comparison. It's a stubby little bugger! Another addition to my Klingon fleet, I'll hopefully post some pictures of my finish D5 War Cruiser at the weekend.

Neat! I'm as not much of an SFB/SFU fan as I am a fan of the FASA. This is one of those designs I rather like, tho.

Anyhow, I've been considering doing one, as well. I like what you've done, and it gives me an idea of how to proceed. What you've done is refined from very rough plans in my head.

Thanks for sharing!

I love the Main body layout, gives it a more menacing look to it! I have to say I'm torn on the Neck though, Structurally it is more sound and therefore less of a vulnerability, but there is also something graceful on the thinner neck of the D7's... so again, Torn... Structure or aesthetics....

Either way I can't wait to her finished up!

The dish is unusual.

The dish on the front was inspired by these images I found on the net.

Finally finished, another addition to the Klingon fleet. I need to make a start re-furbishing an old D11 next.
