U.S.S. Jupp. Finished

Post by andyh » Mon Jul 30, 2018 4:50 pm

Kitbash time :)

These are the components for the USS Jupp.

The pylons were originally going to be from the left over nacelle pylons from the Hallmark Voyager (which I cut up for the Elkins).

I decided to scrap that idea as they were just too bulky (even with a lot of thinning out). I’ve decided to scratch build the pylons (not finished with the details on them yet though, but I’ve got the general shape).

Nacelle pylons coming together. I’ve added the ‘scoop’ and phaser strips.

I wanted to do the same using OS’s Voyager pylons (or Eaglemoss).

OS or the Eaglemoss one would have to be better than the blocky Hallmark ones!

Put a coat of white primer on th catch any seams that I need to putty and broke off one of the nacelle pylons whilst puttying :(

I’ve glued it back on but it doesn’t sit as even as it did before, to my eyes.

That’s the trouble with having such thin pylons- not much surface area to glue

The design is growing on me - seems to be a practical/feasible configuration. Clever use of 1 of these kits!

As I’m nearly ready to start decals, I’m a bit stuck for a NCC number. I know the Jupp studio model didn’t have a number, and that leaves me to make up my own, but I can’t decide on a number. Any suggestions? It has to reflect a believable era (time period when this ship might have been made.

I’m thinking sometime around the Stargazer era????

So the 19-30 range. The Stargazer being a 2883

I roll some dice and NCC-2253.
