Re: New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

I think you're getting it pretty close. I just got the Hot Wheels model and (besides missing the deflector [the best part of the ship, IMO]) it seems pretty accurate. One thing I'd caution is that the Vengeance is flaaaaaat.

Just order it on Amazon already. I got mine plus the Kelvin a week ago. Totally worth the wait.

Re: New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

Hey guys...

Finally a few updates! Since the last pics, I totally rebuilt almost all of the saucer, to make the mesh neater. I had cut everything out with booleans to get the shapes right, but that makes a mess out of everything.

The main parts of the saucer are done, so I'll move on to the nacelles next, I think. I also tweaked the secondary hull too, so it matches what we see in the movie better.







More updates later.

-Ricky

Re: New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

A question about the Vengence, thinking back about the movie. When the Vengence shows up, are there doors that narrow the deflector array? Maybe sliding away to reveal the armament?

Yes. The defector is exposed while at warp, and there are doors that close over it when it isn't. (It doesn't appear to close completely, but it's definitely narrower on standby.)

That was my impression as well.

I can't wait to see the end result of this project.

Re: New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

This looks great. The Vengeance has quickly become one of my favorite Star Trek ships for reasons completely unknown to me. At first, I thought it was ugly as sin. But it grew on me.

I actually like that the secondary hull has the largest weapon ports.
