TOS Ship designed like the Kelvin

Some time ago I saw a TOS ship designed just like the
U.S.S. Kelvin, I think it was a page of a calender.
Does such a picture exist?
Thank you,

James

Re: TOS Ship designed like the Kelvin

There's some kit bash versions out there that basicaly use the TOS Connie components rearanged in the Kelvin configuration, but I personally am not a big fan of those, because I think it is logical that the Kelvin has a bigger single necelle and a smaller secondary hull?
Then there's the concept sketch by Church that has a very TOSish look to it, which you might be thinking of, which would be the best basis to start from, IMHO?

Sounds like it could be one of mine:




For the record, I created that design years before ST XI.

Oh yeah, Starscape's version! Definetly one of the best incarnations of this configuration.

Very nice, very nice. Both excellent views of the design. Starscape, do you have a copy of your design? I'd definitely like to see it.

Copy??? There's some more pics on my website here.

If you mean the mesh itself, it's not online... I mean who else uses Anim8or? Even I am in the process of moving onto other software.

Re: TOS Ship designed like the Kelvin

Hey Starscape,

I meant no disrespect in my choice of words...I was using the colloquial.

In checking out the site, your USS Diligent looks right in line with the original series. It looks like it could've appeared in any given episode then.

Did you ever flesh out the interiors? It'd be interesting to figure where engineering is, the shuttlebays, etc. Great job on all of them!

Look at the image on the page for February, you'll see where the shuttles are stored.

Sorry, if I came across as too harsh I was just wondering what you meant by "copy", i.e. other images or the mesh itself.

Not so much. I did roughly block things out to see if there was enough room/deck-height for the shuttles:





Yeah, I know, I know... it went through several name changes.

Re: TOS Ship designed like the Kelvin

There's also this version, which I think looks gorgeous:

Particularly like the 'The Cage'/'WNMHGB' pilot-era details - very appropriate for a pre-TOS ship.
