USS Oberth

Post by Rigel » Mon Nov 05, 2012 7:13 pm

This is my USS Oberth, I've yet to complete it as I damaged the decals and need replacements. I added a few running lights and added some impulse crystals (I think thats what the two blue objects on the top of the secondary hull are called). If somebody can clarify what they actually are I would be very grateful.

I generally prefer to build TOS and pre-TOS stuff myself, but its a good little model.

I too prefer building mostly original series ships. This is another fine build. You have quite an impressive collection I can tell.

More necro-posting!

I agree with my very esteemed fellow modeler, trekriffic! Great work and looks like yoyu've got a fantastic collection, going thru all of these you've added.

It's mostly speculation, but I'm pretty sure that those are indeed meant to be impulse deflection crystals. It tracks when you compare them to the Refit, Miranda's, and various Excelsior's that we've seen on both the big and little screens. What did you use to make/paint them?

Nice looking build! I'm wondering what kit is that? I've never seen it before.

Given the timeframe of his OP, I'd wager it's the old TDQ kit. I don't know that for sure, tho am fairly certain that the only other kit in this scale prior to the very recent R2 kit was the UGH! Models kit, and I don't think that's been around for more than about two years. Plus, the rounding of the "saucer" is different than that of the UGH! kit.

On the left is the UGH! kit, on the right is the TDQ kit.

Thanks Griffworks, I didn't even look at the year on that post.
