    I remember someone, possibly Vance, once had a schematic of a TOS version of the USS Kelvin online here, but I can't seem to locate it now. I'd appreciate any assistance.

    Thanks,

    I happen to have a b&w schematic that Vance once did of his idea of what a prime-TOS version of the Kelvin would look like saved to my files. I'm not aware of him having done a colourized version of it and I've checked his new site and Cygnus-X1 and it's on neither site, so I guess there really is only the b&w version. I'm sure vance won't object to me passing my copy along, so just pm me your E-Mail addy or something.

    This the one you're looking for? It's the Faraday-class Explorer.

    Here's an "older" variant - the Maxwell-class Explorer:

    ...and another one - Roentgen-class Explorer:

    That's close bu I don't think it's exactly the one I recall. The one I recall had a TOS-style nacelle (maybe the Pike-era or 2nd pilot era variant), and the secondary hull had a hagar art, but the proprtions seem pretty good. The slimmer secondary hull works best with a TOS Kelvin; the Constitution-class secondary hull mwould make it look topheavy.

    I should have my Kelvin somewhere in my files. I'll see if I can't find it today or tomorrow and get it up on Jaynz as a regular update thingie.

    Sorry it took so long, but I finally got around to sending that e-mail. Did it arrive alright? If it did, is that the ship you are looking for?

    EDIT 1: Just checked my e-mail, apparently it is the right pic. Glad to have been able to help.
    EDIT 2: Would that be the old b&w version, Vance, or perhaps a new one, maybe even coloured? *crosses fingers*

    Thanks, Vance! That's a great interpretation, and I don't think I've ever seen the secomdary hull in one of your toolkits. That would also be perfect for the twin secondary hulls om a TOS version of the nuTrek USS Mayflower.
