Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Thanks. I created the design about 20 years ago and first drew it on my Tandy 1000SL as part of a fanfic I wrote on the history of the USS Yorktown. After she was badly damaged in a border clash she was rebuilt to this testbed design and eventually modified to the Constitution Refit standard. I haven't really done any original ST work in almost a decade but I've been having great fun with Neale's work.

My page should be open unless there is something wrong with PB.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Some more...






First two rows are based on the drawings on my website, then there are several based on the book "Starfleet Prototype" and a couple modifications of Neale's drawings, like the Fed CVA from Starfleet Battles modified to more accurately reflect the mini. The Chandley is just a modification with the Reliant hull.

Nice stuff Canis! Though I'm not a fan of the "dangly dish" look, the rest of it is solid!

A definite improvement over the several years old sketch linked above.
Although I probably would make the nacelles more primitive (integrating TOS shapes) and use Andrew Probert's more enclosed version of the torpedo launchers.

Here's a quick mock-up of some parts (click the thumbnails for larger views):

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Four new, decidedly odd, ships

The first two are inspired by ships posted by CanisD.

Warden class fast scout


Surprise class fast destroyer


New London class carrier


Perry class recon destroyer

Wow!

That New London design is quite an interesting eye-catcher. A carrier, eh?

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Personally, I have never liked the stacked nacelle look.

The New London class is really neat, though I would use a full saucer to give room for crew accommodations.
