Atolm's Seolkis Class Starship

Years ago Atolm created this Vulcan beauty, the Seolkis Class Starship:


It inspired me to try to build it in 1/2500 scale. So starting off with a few Gundam Shields and a ton of sheet styreen, I got to work!


I had the basic shape down, but with only the one sketch to work off, I had to infer alot of his concept by guessing (at the start of this project, I had not tracked him down, I've since contacted Atolm through this board)
Upper Hull, yeah I know, it's prety rough right now...

Working on the lower Warp Ring;

Roughing in the upper inset Warp grills;

A quick look at progress so far:

Starting on the secondary hull;


Working on upper hull plating;

Secondary hull nad warp ring test fitting;

Thinking about underhull detail options;


I've since gotten ahold of Atolm, he's given me some more sketches of the Seolkis, but I was already ahead in my build so right now this is a "Seolkis inspired" build. I'm gonna still try to incoperate alot of his ideas, but this build isn't gonna come close to the graceful, flowing lines of his original concept. But I'm having a ball trying to work all these curves!

Looking great. One of the challenges in kitbashing is hiding the source of your borrowed parts, but those Gundam shields are going to disappear by the time your done. You've got skills.

Re: Atolm's Seolkis Class Starship

I was hoping to have more progress done on this build but I seem to be in a bit of a rut. I'm going to try to get some progress done this weekend.

So many ways you could have went with the parts--and this is the best choice.

An elegant design. A good name for the captain Alanya Phosai

Good to see this!
Never mind... a design from Atolm that I never saw before!! And I have dozens of his designs saved in m yhd.
Your interpretation upon the drawing is very good. I´ll follow this topic with to much interest.

Re: Atolm's Seolkis Class Starship

Quick update, working on the lower hull/deflector, I still don't have a pattern for the deflector yet, Based on the other Vulcan ships, their Deflectors seem to be a series of parallel 'bands' so I'm going to go in this direction.

Got the front under plating done;

Detailed the warp ring with strips and half-round;

And last off, slapping some putty in places on the wings;

Re: Atolm's Seolkis Class Starship

Based on the vulcan ships we've seen, I do not think that they use Deflectors per-say...so I would be more creative with that section...I used it as a keel-type structure...Either way, you will come out on top
I love the work so far mate

Atolm - never seen you post your orthos on this one before. Do you have multiple views of it? I'm genuinely curious.

I do not have full schematic Orthos of the ship, just rough linework for the general shape.



Roguewolf did not have this when he started the project, because it was never done. Unfortunately when he first started this project, I was unavailable for contact, so he did his best to extrapolate the shapes of the ship. When he finally got a hold of me, he was very far along into the project, and he asked for me to doodle up the quick ortho you see above. As it has become evident, the design that he built was not as fluid as my original, but since he was so far along, we decided that his is the "normal" configuration. As mine was originally designed as a Mirror Universe Vulcan Warbird. It could also be inferred that his model be the production one, while mine was as it is just the concept. Either way, Roguewolf has shown astounding intuitive insight to how the shape could have been interpreted. Couple that with his obvious high level of skill, and you have the bird that is being developed right before us now.

Re: Atolm's Seolkis Class Starship

Wow Atolm, I am humbled, high praise indeed!

A Mirror Universe Vulcan Warbird!!! I had never considered that, I always thought that it was a TNG-DS9 Era Vulcan design. While I am committed to the road I am now on, I still feel that a build of your original vision is possible. Perhaps after I finish my 'take' on your design, I can start on a bigger "Warbird size' build of your true vision...

I can't commit to a time line as I have at least 6-12 other projects backlogged on the bench as it is, but I'd love to take another crack at it.

Could be a Vulcan/Romulan Hybrid ship

Or a typical starship design during the Romulan/Vulcan breakaway.

I think it mentioned that the Vulcan's had their nuclear war 2,000 years ago by the time of ENT, so there is probably quite a bit of time between then and the current Vulcan High Command/Romulan Star Empire era, during which the Vulcans invented Warp Drive, and then launched colony missions to find new habitable worlds and resources, since they had nuked their home world, and one of the colony expeditions found Romulus and Remus.

Romulus and Vulcan likely later broke off diplomatic relations as the gap between their moral and spiritual beliefs widened too much.
That, or Vulcan lost contact with the colonists even before they reached Romulus, and the Vulcan colonists grew in isolation.

Either way, I think this is one of those designs that came about in the intervening 2000 years, take away the time it took for them to design proper cruisers.
