I really hate myself sometimes...I see 'well enough' and can't leave it alone...

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

I did a "skinnier" version of the new secondary hull and did "refits" of the Defender and my seemingly-never-finished Galaxy.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

The 980 is a spunky-great design. The wide shuttlebay on your Galaxy with your new saucer has really come into its own

I like how you have the nacelles raised on the Pax--the only helpful hint might be to make the nacelles a bit thinner to keep it sleek. Great saucer on that. I've been waiting for someone to place a super reliant saucer on a super-refit secondary hull. You might play around with that a bit more.

Something about your defender really speaks to me. The nacelle pairs come from Stargazer, but I wonder what it might look like if you omitted the bottom nacelle and its supporting structure--so that you had only the upper section of the stargazer nacelle supports.

That might look cool on its own.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Interesting thoughts, publisur...I might tinker at some point.

I replaced the image of the original Pax with a "cleaned up" version. Got rid of the saucer shuttlebays and cleaned up the detailing on the side as well as improving the interconnecting dorsal (the proportioning was off).



Then I got a request from a friend who I'd shown it to. He liked it but thought it needed "something", so I got to thinking about additional pods and such. I came up with some alternate configurations.

First, with only a couple of additional pods.


And a variant of this with a big "ship buster" anti-proton cannon added.


Next I did one adding the "roll bar", but replacing the megaphasers with either more sensor/jammer pods, or maybe some other form of weapon (but no anti-proton cannon)


My friend liked the last one the best. I think it might be a bit too much. I do like the one with just the two undersaucer pods though...

What do you all think?

Looks awesome but you left the Starfleet delta circle symbol on the top views
