This may have been one of Jackill's designs, but IIRC, it is predated by the first, less armed incarnation, the Joshua Class Command Cruiser. Cygnus X1 has the original blueprints, supposedly by Shane Johnson. While the publication date is unclear, I do recall getting this set at a con at least a year or two before the Jackills datasheets started producing the variants.
Ditto the above. IIRC, I purchased a copy of those plans at a Trek convention around 1988 or 1989. The dealer excitedly informed me that they were the first design he'd seen based on TNG. Personally, I think they belong in the period somewhere between the TOS movies and TNG, but that's another story.

In any case, some more fantastic modeling work by Forbin!

Oh dear. It's a Shane Johnson design?
Damn. The first place I saw it was in Jackill's book #3.

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

In the original plans I have, I never actually saw a name for anyone, nor a publication date. However, Cygnus X1 does have the author as being Shane Johnson. So I suspect they either found some fine print in the sheets that I missed or the independently confirmed the author as a part of their bibliography citation.

Not sure if Mr. Johnson is here on the board or not to verify the origin of the design.

Nice work Forbin. The view of the shuttlecraft coming in for a landing would be rather interesting.

No idea. I wasn't even aware of his involvement in the design until I saw this thread and did some digging. And a quick Google search brings up a large number of men by that name, of varying backgrounds.

Don't have my Jackill's stuff handy, but if I'm not mistaken he does credit Johnson with the original Joshua class design in his books and datasheets.

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

Ah! That's probably where Cygnus got its credit reference from, then. Thanks for the clarification.

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

Just checked Jackill's book #3, and yes, he does credit Shane Johnson for the Joshua class. How about that. Maybe I should read the fine print sometimes.

Cool ship.
The unique thing I dislike, is where the neck and nacele are joinned. I would interrupt the grills before they touched the little neck.

Both Shane and Eric K from Jayne's had health scares not long ago.

This is why I waish I was a lottery winner, to pay off med-debts to allow people to quit jobs and spend all their time doing drawings, writings.

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

I just love it when you do builds of the more eccentric, less common designs that we don't see very much of (at least compared to, say the Constitution class, or the D-7).

If your going to play the letter game, then you should know that I would like to see the Shaitan-A at some point.

And yes, the Joshua class: she and her variants are aesthetically pleasing; a nice design for between TMP-era and TLE.

Unfortunately, the Joshua shares the same registry as the more numerous Loknar, so in my mind, the Joshua (and her variants) have always been displaced by the latter.

Re: Loki Class destroyer model

Maybe the other way around. Loknar/Phobos is TOS-TMP--this is TMP to TNG?
