Just another query about the Charlemagne class vessel. I'm wondering how useful or successful the navigational deflector/scanner would be, as it is mostly blocked by the primary hull.
I was toying with the idea that it was a "half circle" dish, like the 24th century Intrepid class has.

Speaking of which, I was bored last night, so...

USS Voyager (c2268)


and the movie-era Pioneer class

Nice TOS era Voyager! And I really like the Pioneer-class.

The TOS era Charlemagne looks more like a predecessor to the Centaur from DS9 than the refit Charlemagne.

Which is to say, really cool and clean looking.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Just a bit of a neck on the refit Charlemagne--like on Orne's -R concept would help round it out. Have the nacelles a bit higher...

I think the Charlemagne's main deflector is too obstructed by the bottom of the saucer. Really, the same thing goes for your 2268 Voyager.

Re: My homebrew kitbashes

Minor nitpick - I realize you're still learning how to use PdN so take this as a suggestion: Make alignment lines to keep everything "in sync".



At a glance, the three views look fine but when you orient them drafting style, the parts are off center and off alignment from one view to the next.

Create two layers in PdN - one for the red lines, one for the blue. Move them up to act as your two top-most layers. Draw center lines starting at the bridge dome in the top view (use the hull grid lines for reference) and align your other primary hull views with each other, then work outwards from that point.

It kind'a does, doesn't it?

Did you note the scale change I did with the simple expedient of re-scaling the airlocks and bridge?
