Awesome.
I could do that more often if you like. If you like come of what I come up with, you could even add it to the information behind the class.

For example:
"The Arminius-class Light Corvette/Combat Starship was a starship class originally on the drawing boards as the latest descendent of the venerable Renner-class Corvette/Destroyer Escort, and was slated for her final design process and construction in the early 2380s to supplement and eventually replace the current Corvette incarnation of the time, as the Arminius's Naval Contract Code (NCC-82455) shows."

I could probably go on for a while: how she was rushed into production in the aftermath of the Breen incursion of Earth to help out the approximately 20 year old corvettes currently in service at the time, and how she was eventually replaced my a much more advanced class of corvette in 2383, due to not being able to incorporate a number of the latest technologies (namely quantum slipstream).

I could easily see the Arminius as a descendent of the Renner class.

Damn , your right - I'm sure I'd seen the Renner before, but I don't recall it.

My "official" history goes like this:

Re: Kitbash Datasheets - some finished ones

Nice! One small nit at the end of the second to last paragraph: "CAMBATANTS" - should be "COMBATANTS".

Re: Kitbash Datasheets - some finished ones

I also misspelled "USS Caractacus"!

(I do appreciate a spellcheck, thanks. )

Nice write-up. Always loved that little Frankenstein. And while we're doing proofreading, in the first image description you missed a space between "a" and "Klingon" and in the second it should read "Chin'toka"

"Tactical Command", not "Combat Command". No?

Believe it or not, there IS a space there. I saw that too and went to fix it, and found a space! Maybe I should add another .

Is that a real thing from the show? Seems too specific. Combat Command is more of an overall agency.

The USAF used to be divided into Strategic Air Command and Tactical Air Command (among other commands). A while ago they consolidated the force structure and combined those two into Air Combat Command.

Re: Kitbash Datasheets - some finished ones

Elizabeth Shelby was working out of Starfleet Tactical for that anti-Borg program per "Best of Both Worlds", and the office kept getting name-checked on all those dedication plaques of Starfleet ships from TNG to VOY, too.

'Cause Shelby was assigned to come up with anti-Borg tactics. Doesn't mean SFT was the agency overseeing the whole Dominion War years later.

Top view of the Claymore as-built:

I also redid the Grand Alliance top view to match this new format:

Both will print on 17x22 at 150 dpi and should come out at 1/1400 scale (same size as the models).
