Look how well the struts work with the Excelsiors cigar hull. Nice and flat up top. Perfect.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Sometimes, even engineers like to play, and such was the case when it came time to upgrade/refit the Remora-class escort. A newer, more efficient warp drive featuring twin nacelles increased the operating range of the vessels, and the addition of a dorsal-mounted weapons pod with 4 photon torpedo tubes (2 forward and 2 aft) and an additional 2 twin-mount phaser banks pushed the rebuilds into the "heavy escort" category (some argued for redesignating the ships as destroyer-escorts/light destroyers.

The changes were considered substantial enough to warrant a new class-designation, and that was when the design engineers showed their playful side, christening the design the Starhawk class.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Please note the updated parts credits on the Starhawk.

Major parts credit goes to JAFisher for his Remora redraw which formed the basis for the "rebuild".

I apologize for the oversight.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Look good to me and it improves the ships profile and reduces the target area of the front view
