Vance gets all the credit for the basic parts of course...all I did was redraw a few bits here and there (such as making the pylon a bit longer than it was before).

Because pulbisur asked, and I had nothing better to do, here's a Galaxy/Valhalla hybrid. I went ahead and labeled it the Galaxy.



Not sure I agree that she looks better with her nacelles "up"...
Looks good my only crit is how much the Bussard's are being blocked by the Saucer.

^ The Ambassador class does that.

Probably others too.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

I'm digging that Mosby-class. Probably my favorite take on the Ranger yet. Especially the front and side drawings, I don't know what, but there's something not quite kosher about the top view, at least to my eye.

Probably the "off center" hump and the change in scale of the bridge superstructure...they're both most noticable in the top view.

As for bussards on the hybrid, the Ambassador is one example, the Excelsior is another. On the hybrid, they still have 50% exposure, which I'm calling "good enough". I'm sticking with the low nacelle Galaxy for the "official" version anyways.

I also found a floorplan for the movie-era bridge that I was able to kludge together a good idea of the layout I wanted for it, but I won't be posting that as I don't have permission from the cygnusx-1 site to publicly use their materials.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Ok, doing a little revisiting on my 23rd century Galaxy class. Added more detailing to some parts and worked on the registry and name a little.



and decided to do a Connie variant using a few parts-bashed parts and mods. Also experimented with using the distortion buttons to put the registry on all three views...I don't think I'll be going to all that trouble any time soon for other ships, but it does look pretty good.



Backstory for the "Lady Lex" is that she was the testbed for some of the systems that went on to be part of the Enterprise subclass refit package (phasers, torpedo launcher), as well as testing out an advanced circumfrential warp nacelle that ultimately was rejected in favor of the linear one as seen in the movies.

Tweak to Lexington. Wasn't happy with the pylon and nacelle placement.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Indeed this is better cus the farther away from the Shuttle bay the better for the Nacelle Pylons

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

I like that dorsal support. I'm guessing the section in the front with the horizontal lines on it would be inset from the rest of the width?

Yes, as near as I could tell it is slightly inset. I can't claim the part though, it's an obscure Vance color part I "black and white-d" and harvested off of a finished ship.

Today's contestant, the York-class frigate, named for Alvin York, the Medal of Honor recipient from WWI

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Again, watch your clearances. Is that a torpedo launcher on top on the York (single tube)? If so, looks like the torpedoes will be barely clearing the bridge. Ouch.

The Reliant had more clearance.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Go back up and look at the York again..tweaked the nacelle size and addressed the Corporal's clearance issue.

Better. I'd go even more, just to be on the safe side, but a definite improvement.
