    I think this is one of my favorites of your designs. It's so refreshing to see new shapes incorporated into kitbashed Starfleet, and the Leif Ericson integrates well!

    I still think that would make for a good deep space exploratory vessel.

    She's a lovable old barge, nice action pics there. :cool:

    In canon trek only the Sydney class had the look and feel of a freighter/transport I happen to like that class a lot as well. :D

    The model is 16 1/2" long, so at 1/1000 scale (which is what the PL nacelles are), that makes it 1,375 feet long.

    Yoikes, that IS big!! :eek:

    If the real world is anything to go by, cargo and freighter type ships *are* the biggest ones around!
