    Sorry, been slacking off.

    USS PREBLE
    Destroyer, 2360s.

    Model:
    http://www.inpayne.com/models/kitbash/trekpage_preble.html

    Made from a 1/2500 saucer and hull with a 1/1400 engine stuck on. A spare parts bash, really.

    The name is in honor of a coworker who served aboard the real Preble (DD46) in the 1980s, and said it was the crappiest rustbucket in the fleet.

    Why does this ship remind me of some Martian warmachine from a George Pal movie?

    Like I said some time ago, Like the Masao. I also like the Preble and the Fanboi (though she could stand to lose the extra nacelle). The Val'Walo doesn't work for me though. The architecture just is too clunky. That's just me though.

    Hey Forbin, did you ever do a ventral for Masao?

    Nah. It wouldn't be all that different than the top. I really only needed the side and front for the TM page.

    The Preble? Well, maybe eventually, but I already have the views I need for the manual.

    I'm not sure I'd want to be on that bridge, sitting right on top of a high-energy piece of equipment like that! :lol:

    What I was thinking. What happens if they need to reconfigure the main deflector à la The Best of Both Worlds? ;)

    ^Makes it easier, they just open a hatch in the floor and make the adjustment directly.:)

    Also, there are plenty of windows near the deflector on the D, so obviously it ain't a problem.

    Really? That's interesting, 'cause it was just a "I have a couple of spare parts lying around, lets see what happens if I glue this here..."

    Thanks! :)

    Let's face it, anything made out of Galaxy class parts is gonna be good. And your four Galaxy class derivatives are awesome! ;)

    Sub Class? Oh, the Ticonderoga? No, just move the nacelle backwards. After I finished this, I thought it would have been sleeker that way. But it was too late. :)
