Maybe the destroyer/single warp nacelle of the family:

the top module with the nav deflector is from a Furuta Nebula (it will be closer to the saucer)

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:
Anything is possible. Making an alternate scale of window decals would be simple, so I'll see how it would look as multi-scale when I get ready to produce it. Actually, there are a number of the Ravenstar kits that would cross between the 1/1400 to 1/2500, and 1/1400 to 1/1000, so this is something that's on my mind quite a lot.

A new kit maker who I'm producing kits for. His line will be ready hopefully with the first set of ships in January, but at the very least February.

Full ships or only parts & kit bashes ? Masters in 3D print ? Star Trek ? Tardis ?
The angular warp nacelles could be interesting, and with a bigger version as well (for a modern cruiser).

I don't want to reveal too much for now, but I think that the kits will be interesting enough that everyone will find at least a couple of designs make their way into their fleets. Masters are 3D designed and printed complete kits.

Something that could become the Ionian Class :

the pilot cockpit would be a huge (decent) shuttle bay
must figure some nav deflector that fit inside the angular section (aft) of the X-wing

EDIT: is there any spare Defiant nav deflector in a bigger scale available, something alike the replacement bussard collectors in clear red resin or a 3D print ? It could do.

Just to show the overall look, first coat of primer to check where additional sanding is required:

Obviously doesn't need a navigational deflector.
