Really? That's interesting, 'cause it was just a "I have a couple of spare parts lying around, lets see what happens if I glue this here..."

Thanks!

Let's face it, anything made out of Galaxy class parts is gonna be good. And your four Galaxy class derivatives are awesome!

Re: Kitbash orthos

Sub Class? Oh, the Ticonderoga? No, just move the nacelle backwards. After I finished this, I thought it would have been sleeker that way. But it was too late.

Re: Kitbash orthos

You know, while your in-universe explanation for the Ticonderoga does make sense, the way the nacelle attaches on the Preble 1) doesn't have the neck interfere with those gold exhaust vents behind the bussards and 2) gives the ship some character and sets it apart a bit from just being a TNG Saladin, along with the topside deflector.

Okay, then.

BTW, I'm going to be scarce during the day - the firewall at work just decided to block TBBS this week.

Re: Kitbash orthos

Been a while since I updated the comparison chart on my kitbash page. Here's the side views so far, flush left (providing my web provider is up)

Your provider seems to cooperate

Still very fond of the Reeses...

Re: Kitbash orthos

For some reason Reeses is almost the perfect pre-TOS ship design, it has enough crudeness with a certain style to it.

Kinda like the huge monitors the British build, HMS Erebus for example, its strange looking, functional, clunky but it has a certain beauty.

I like all of Reeses pieces as long they're firmly attached to each other, Reeses in pieces would be a sad thing...

Re: Kitbash orthos

And I built the damn thing as a joke, too. Go figure.

Back before Polar Lights got the Trek license, we were constantly begging them to go for it over at HobbyTalk. So I took two Polar Lights models - the Jetson's saucer and the Dick Tracy Space Coupe - jammed 'em together and made a "Polar Lights Star Trek model."

Re: Kitbash orthos

Say, Forbin, now that you've done the Broadsword (the side view of which I had been drooling over for a long time before you finally built her), you ever gonna bash the Wolf from your story? I just love that behemoth.

EDIT: Oh and that new comparison chart is awsesome, of course.

Re: Kitbash orthos

Ah, yes...the Wolf. Love that thing. I remember buying the printed diagrams of that many years ago and used it as a major plot device in an alternate-universe RPG where the Terran Empire was using it to destroy the Changeling's homeworld in the Gamma Quadrant, wiping out the last vestiges of the Dominion. It was so awesome I had to use it somehow, although I think it fits more in the mirror universe than the prime universe. Planet-killing mass drivers isn't very Starfleet-y.
