Federation Cutter 2

Another of the ships of the Federation Cutter Service. This has a more traditional primary/secondary hull structure. The Cutter Service distinctive stripes have been wrapped around both hulls. It's about 200 meters long and would roughly correspond to the newer National Security Cutters of the USCG.

A large engineering Tower has been built into the secondary hull.

Well done! Thank you. No problem here. Glad you liked the basic design. The engineering tower was too tall to allow the impulse engines to be located where they typically are. I was thinking about placing them at the aft of the main secondary hull thru deck.

Now I can see how that might look! Not bad. Looks like you also added a shuttle bay to the rear of the engineering tower. Looks good. I was either going to either do something like that, or put it at the front of the secondary hull, with the main deflector placed at the front of the primary hull saucer, a la NX-01.

Yes, decals are great. Still haven't figured out how to place text on a model. Also I have a logo for the Cutter Service that I want to be in the light blue field. Dont know how to do that either.

Re: Federation Cutter 2

Tarek, nifty design. And I saw your first Cutter, which was also cool in its own way.

Did you know that there is a Police Cutter in the game Star Fleet Battles? Here's the CAD they did to create the miniature:

I drafted the internal deck plans for the entire ship. Sorry, I can't post them on-line because Amarillo Design Bureau wants to publish them in a future product (no idea when that will happen). They did print Deck Three in their Captain's Log #47 magazine as a teaser.

Re: Federation Cutter 2

That was nice of them to do.

On Bloomberg's new show, we see an artist who sculpts virus models out of glass.

We need him to make a Doomsday Machine.

Something I remember from Wonderfest 2005. There was an individual who had a recipe for a mold that would shrink a bit--allowing for scale reduction...the folks at Starship Modeler might remember that. I think Shaw's 33 inch reproduction might need the stock nacelle end piece reduced a bit.

Re: Federation Cutter 2

Really love that shape. Shades of Baton Rouge hmmm yeah, but the general shape is more like proto Excelsior overall.
