Jackill's Rozenzweig Class kitbash

... with a few changes to suit my preferences and laziness.
Jakill's original concept is here:
http://www.shipschematics.net/startr...rosenzweig.jpg (you may have to cut and paste to avoid the hotlink warning)

My version eliminates the forward pulse-phaser cannons 'cause I didn't feel like making them, moves the hangar deck to the aft of the B/C deck superstructure, and replaces the engines with some resin LN-68s:










Saucer from, of course, the ol' standby Ertl Enterprise.
Secondary hull and pylons, Evergreen sheet plastic.
Torpedo pod from, of course, Ertl Reliant.
Nacelles from Federation Models.
PNT Models saucer-mounted deflector.
Some home-made decals and some JTGraphics decals.
Birdshot for the extra phasers.
Millenium Models (god rest their souls) etched docking hatches.
And yes, the base is pressure-treated deck railing from my scrap pile.

I had a buncha little problems as I went along, so I cursed a lot during the build and I'm not 100% happy with the outcome. and dang, at almost 25" it takes up a LOT of shelfspace!!

Oh yeah - I've decided that starships designed for combat should be done in grays, instead of pearl white.

I assume so, it's mentioned in the credits in the back of Jackill's book.

Very nice! It looks like it was a fun build. Any major problems when making her?

Re: Jackill's Rozenzweig Class kitbash

Just that it's so big once I glued the engines on it was hard to handle, and I kept bumping it on my lamps and cracking putty on the pylon roots.

Also, the aft body makes a natural handle to hold it by, like a tennis racket, and I wore off the damn starfleet pennent decals and had to make more!

Nice work... I usually don't care for most Jackill's designs, but your model makes this one look great!
