Re: Kitbash orthos

Yeah, "Y'arr" I just puled out of my ass to have an alien-sounbding name.

BTW, credit to Eric Kristiansen for inspiring the Terrell. It's based on one of Jackill's designs. I liked his drawing (Joshua Paul class) and tried to make "my version" into plastic, then did these drawings off of my version.

USS KIROV

Zee ultimate dreadnought!!



I like the way the name sounds so much that I just don't care he was a damned Bolshevik, and even the Russian Navy renamed their ship after the fall.

Re: Kitbash orthos

Hm. Gotta do some more shadows, like under the saucer.
Sorry, jumped the gun there.

Re: Kitbash orthos

Did you get the idea for the secondary hull from elsewhere or did you improvise it yourself?

Re: Kitbash orthos

Improvise, baby. Franz Joseph dreadnought theory was that both the saucer and the secondary hull were bigger than a standard cruiser's. After staring at it for a few minutes, I realized the best way to do it was to take the front of the hull from a second Excelsior and flip it. The deflector hole is huge and the shuttle bay thingamajig fits inside just fine.

Gah! Refresh the Kirov again - I forgot those blocky things they added around the bridge superstructure.

Re: Kitbash orthos

^ Concur -- That's one of the few three-nacelle designs that actually looks right, rather than just having a nacelle/zit stick out of the top of the primary hull.

Cheers,

Re: Kitbash orthos

Back to the Big D - here's a ventral view showing the extended belly, and the shuttle bay access which just happens to be the same shape as the deflector aperture.

Re: Kitbash orthos

Well, the TOS dreadnaught (or dreadnought) did have a deflector back there to start with, but the only way Excelsior could have a shuttlebay that could hold anything is if you scaled it up mightily.
