Just my initial idea sketch, which I scanned and made blueprints from. After it's all finished I'll make those available for anyone that wants to make a CG version of it.

I just realized that if you take my Enterprise F/H and chop off the saucer and other extraneous bits, it makes a jolly passable off-the-shelf Klingon design.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the kind comments.

MadMan1701A that would be fine with me, when the model is complete I'll take ortho pictures.

To someone that asked the design process, I just drew a quick sketch, but for the most part I'm making it up as I go with no plans, haha.

To answer the questions of what it's made of. It's sheet styrene over a plexiglass frame.
I'm blown away that you're using a plexi-glass frame. I've seen that used on a Star Wars model. The Correllian Diplomatic Transport model. It's not the easiest stuff to work with (I've had experience with museum displays).

You've got a lot of small duplicate pieces. How are you replicating the cuts so precisely? And what tools are you using?

I'm really digging this model. It's not just the overall design that's pleasing to look at, but it's how clean the lines are- very professional.

That's so cool. That would make an excellent future Federation/Klingon design.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

Here is a possible name for your new ship--based on an actual Soviet Missile Range Instrumentation Ship (SMRIS)

"Chazma"

This was a vessel that dropped in on the Glomar during Project Azorian

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

I haven't really thought of a name, or ship class for this. I wouldn't begin to figure that out. Thanks for the suggestion.


I'm doing some lighting tests on the nacelles. In my opinion most of the time the warp lighting is way too bright on the ships using LED for lighting so I'm varying the intensity of the LED's to see how it looks with the room lighting up, and in near darkness.

Your model is really fantastic, and once it's complete, I think we're all going to be in for a treat.

I have one request (not that you're in any way obligated to grant it)...please, PLEASE don't paint this ship green. I'm sick and tired of seeing every Klingon ship (and even retroactively in ENT) that silly olive green color.

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

^^^ I agree. Klingon ships should definitely be in the more gray range. Loving the warp engine effect - is that light sheet for the warp coils or some mini-LED's? Absolutely beautiful work overall...

also I think the engines should be red
red is a big Klingon color, interior, consoles etc are red


fantastic work REL!

Im not that fast in modelling (huge backlog), but for sure I would like to see the blueprint.
