Re: Speaking of models, here's another kitbash

Excellent ship. It looks like a larger version of the SFB/SFC Burke.

Anyone: where do you think the warp drive engine room should be housed aboard the Starship Minmus? I'm thinking it should be separate from the impulse engine room, maybe warp engineering would be located in the lower saucer vortex...

And the more I look at the Minmus, the more I think it would look great with little mini-dishes on the front-ends of those small pods above the saucer.
Why not just make the Impulse and Warp engineering in the same location? A smaller ship needs more effecient uses of space, right?

Well, that's assuming those pods were actually megaphasers (whatever they are).
They are megaphasers because they come in the TOS Era Weapons Pack - 2 of them and a torpedo pod. Combine this with my Thin Pylon Pack and you can make a TOS style Reliant roll bar.

Very Nice TOS version of the Lancer there Forbin

also this should be what the ship from the Alvin and the Chipmunks (2d animation from the 80-90's) Star Wreck (Star Trek parody) should have looked like

Re: Speaking of models, here's another kitbash

Nice little frigate you got there. I like how she has a shuttle bay at the rear of the bridge section, similar to many later starships.

By the way, you wouldn't happen to be that guy who runs that Inpayne website? I couldn't help but notice that your Avatar uses one of the ships from that site. And quality of the Minmus matches that of the models on the aforementioned website.

I thought so. Glad to make your acquaintance! I must say that I love your work. My favorites thus far are the Peregrine and the Couer De Lion.

Lovely kitbash - I really like shuttlebay integrating into the upperdecks and TWO turbo shafts. Now all you need is a fan series set aboard.

I'm a little bothered by the fact that they entirely credit Jackill for the container pods, and don't mention Franz Joseph at all.

It all kind of rounds out though, as the basic container Jackill has listed is based on FJ.
It would be nice if that were mentioned somewhere. Anyone who doesn't already know that would come away from your website thinking Jackill invented the whole thing.



Marian
Building custom models of Star Trek fan-based designs is such a niche market that it's doubtful anyone who's into it doesn't know who FJ is.

I'm not worried.
