Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Ok, this is a bit of a cheat...bog standard Constitution refit (Enterprise subclass) with a bashed nacelle and redetailing from me

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

A crit has been offered that my designs need to be more "matched" in terms of the eras of various parts (mopvie nacelles on movie hulls, etc).

I did a quick refit of the Minuteman as a test. It looks ok this way, but I liked it with DrX's nacelles as well (made it look more like a "tween era" ship).

What do you all think?

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

There's no rules saying you have to use certain era components together just as long as they don't look too far apart - you wouldn't put TOS nacelles on a TNG saucer. Generally, as long as the eras overlap or are "next to each other" in some way, you're fine. And with homemade parts that tend to borrow elements from different eras, you have even more leeway. You can always explain it away as experimental tech that got better developed later on into what we recognize.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

See, Ziz, that's what I was thinking, but the critic who made the suggestion seems to be of the opinion that only certain types of nacelles belong on certain types of hulls, and not just as a matter of "period matching"...he didn't even like the ACE-based nacelle...he appears to be of the opinion that ONLY "standard" (ie, refit Connie-based) nacelles are appropriate for any ship between the 2270s and TNG era that use hulls that are from the Connie refit aesthetic.

At least that's how I'm understanding what he's saying.

Oh well, can't please everybody...

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Ok, after several back and forth exchanges with Bolian Admiral over at FRS, here's what I have

Minuteman (2276)


Minuteman (2294)


Minuteman (2344)


Note that I changed more than nacelles on each iteration, reflecting systems upgrades at refit.

I think I've improved the design overall, having to consider the crits...what say you?
