Re: Kitbash orthos

If John is offended by my blatant rudeness, let him tell me himself. Who appointed you the purveyor of Internet etiquette? Why do you get so offended by something that has absolutely no bearing on you whatsoever? The OP had a lot of stuff to it and, to be honest, I was quite understandably preoccupied with the pics he made. Why do you insist on playing at being a mod when you clearly (thank God) are not? This is not the first time you've shown the board your ass. Seriously, what IS your malfunction? And don't give me that lame bullshit about being a "pet peeve". Control freak issues much? Or are you one of those people so desperate to remain relevant that you invariably interject an opinion that nobody asked for? I'm genuinely curious.

You know, you're right. It shouldn't have.

As for the rest of your post, there's no good reply I can make to that. I've personally upset you and didn't mean to. I'm sorry.

The name is a pun. During WWII Curtiss designed a rear-engined, fighter called the XP-55 Ascender. The wings were at the rear, an it had a canard elevator at the front. The thing looked backwards to everybody, so it got the nickname "Ass-ender."

It´s cool to see the blueprints coming to life. Somo of your ships are in my loooong "to do" list of 3D projects. The blueprints will make it much more easy.

It kind of reminds me of a toy I had as a kid, I think it may have been a transformer, that was based on an US WW2 plane....

Great work throughout, though, Forbin.

Re: Kitbash orthos

Personally I think it looks quite charming, and very cool story on the origin of the name. I'm assuming the front dome is a Cage-era bridge module. The rear dome looks like a later bridge design but without a turbo shaft extension on the back. Is that a secondary bridge or just an elevated nav sensor dome?

Re: Kitbash orthos

I like it too...Might I suggest though eliminating the 'waist" where the embedded secondary get's pinched and taking off the bridge dome at the rear?

Exactly - just a hi-resolution sensor emplacement. In other words, I was too lazy to seal off the hole on the model.

Again, the physical model determined that shape when I puttied the cylindrical 2ndary hull into the saucer. That's just the way it came out, and even though I'd envisioned a straight hull line, I figured it was good enough for government work .
