Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Finally a wish and dream came true!!!

Vance style Excelsior class parts in B/W and a design made from them

all we need now is Endurance class Sencor pod, Constellation type saucer and Excelsior / Enterprise B type impluse engines and Belknap Class secondary hull and we can recreate all the best designs from Jackill and Mastercom Data center

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

I like this compact design, but I would make one suggestion: from a visual balance point-of-view, the interconnecting dorsal seems too short in the fore-aft direction.

I would suggest leaving the aft surface where it is but moving the forward face of it so the lower end comes all the way down the round slope of the engineering hull (as it did on the refit E) and then attaches to the saucer about halfway between where it is now and where the aft end of the lower superstructure is. That will make it look more substantial without breaking up the visual flow.

With the forward slope of the structure the way it is now, the whole thing just looks a little dopey, somehow. But, I think the simple change I just described will improve it immeasurably. Other than that, I really like this one.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

reposting with updated image:

Another of the so-called "Treaty Cruisers" born out of the first decade after the signing of the First Khitomer Accords, the Lor'harrival-class cruiser walked a fine legal line. Despite the failure and exposure of the Cartwright conspiracy, many in the Federation (and especially in Starfleet) remained highly skeptical of Klingon intentions, and Starfleet's Plans and Policies board was chief among them.

While obeying every letter of the limitations imposed by the Accords, the Lor'harrival (named for a famous Andorian Imperial Guard commander turned explorer) certainly pushed those limitations to the breaking point.

The class boasted in addition to the usual saucer section and ventral secondary hull mounts not one but two twin-mount Type 8 phaser banks firing into the aft arc whereas most other cruisers had either a single twin- or two single-mount banks at that location.

To bring the weapons load-out back into compliance with the limitations, the embarked photon torpedo stores were changed from the Mark VII warheads that were the then-current fleet standard for the less powerful Mark VIs that were their immediate predecessors. An experimental, vertically-arranged, double-feed torpedo launcher was incorporated in early hulls, but, while generally successful, failed to perform up to expectations, and was considered to not be worth the additional space required.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

interesting Agrippa designs. like the bottom version the best.

one tiny thing I noticed: there is a discrepancy in the height of the engine/photon pod structure in the front and side views, the front view sits higher than the side view.
