John Eaves' USS Endeavour sketches

Forgive me if this has been brought up before (although a forum search hasn't yielded anything pertinent).

Has anyone of you gifted fan artists out there done any work based on John Eaves' sketches for the USS Endeavour that was supposed to appear in First Contact but later dropped from the script?

In a preliminary draft for Star Trek: First Contact, dated 29 September, 1995, an Endeavor was explicitly named as one of the starships engaged in the Battle of Sector 001 in scenes 10, "PICARD: Signal the Endeavor to fall back. We'll cover them.", and 11, "The Endeavor moves off as the Borg FIRE at the Enterprise and BLASTS the saucer section.". These references did not make it into the final cut, though designer John Eaves has worked on 6 September on a preliminary design for the ship, albeit of an entirely different configuration, with Nebula-class and Miranda-class traits. As he recalled, "In the early script there had been a ship called the Endeavour that used to play quite a big role. I was drawing that and the E at the same time. They were kind of similar shapes, so it was almost a way of trying things out. I thought, 'If I want to see this on the E, let me try it on the Endeavour sketches first.' I'd mess around with the body, tapering it to the nacelles in one sweepy part, things like that. It was definitely an idea platform for me. So, at this point I just put Enterprise on all the Endeavour sketches, because by that time Endeavour was gone and nobody had ever seen them!" (Star Trek: The Magazine Volume 3, Issue 11, pp. 48-49)

I really like the idea of a Sovereign-class based Nebula-style kitbash.
