Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Sean, you going to do a Meni-SotL Bonaventure? Looks like you have most of the parts.

Here's another pic:

No, no P2 or TMP stuff from me. Since my graphic tool does not offer a function to have text follow a curved line, i have to do this by hand, with TOS-markings only the registry number is affected, which is doable, but with P2, TMP and later the name would have to be done also, which i am much to lazy to do.
Then dont add the text then

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

@Nathan

Sorry, i'm too much of a perfectionist to not put markings on the ships. And playing in the TOS and pre-TOS era is so much fun.

@137th Gebirg.

That Design are almost special parts. I wouldn't know where to start doing that. What can be done with my is this heavy cruiser variant based on Wingsley's Defiant.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Thanks. Was not that complicated to work up from the schematic, i made of Wingsley's Defiant-A design.

Actually it's Resolution class (CH1960). For Adamant, i just added the teardrop section from the constitution-style hull to make it more like the Bonaventure.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

I've indeed found out, that i own a program which can wrap text, which sits mostly unused on a dusty section of my HD. Which led to the problem of finding a new font for the TOS-era registries (The one i used before did not have a "-" sign, which was not a problem with doing the number "manually"), which i found. So some TMP-era designs may happen in the future.

And as test for the new components:

Atlantis Mk.II cruiser.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Arcturus looks great!

It would be neat to see a variant ship with this shape, but based on the smaller saucers from the kit.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Of course, Arcturus is still an adaptation of the NX-01 form. But i have something like that in the works.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

Anyone know where I can get my hands on Vance's schematics kit involved with this freighter so I can bring it up to the later part of the TNG/DS9/Voy era (2379/2380)?

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

This isn't a freighter. It's the TMP Era refit extrapolation of the old-style Federation Heavy Carrier from Star Fleet Battles.

I'm afraid the only parts available from Vance's Toolkit are the saucer hull and the warp nacelles. The rest of the schematic is custom stuff from Vance.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

If you can find it in the toolkit, which you can find on the URL, that is on EVERY of my works, it isn't available. Of course, you could ASK Vance per e-mail or PM, if he is willing to give it to you.

Re: Schematics made with Vance's toolkit

This is what i was working on:

Insurgent class corvette

The heavy phaser cannon emplacement is inspired by Darkwing_Duck's Mustang.
