    The Klingon model in the possession of the Smithsonian is grey and a kind of green-grey.

    And the AMT model kit of the Vulcan shuttle, the original release at least, was molded in a (very) tan color.

    AMT kits are worthless for that kind of thing as they'd often use whatever color plastic available to cast some kits, hence the sky blue, gray and white TOS Enterprises, and the black and chrome D-7 I got in 1975 or so.

    ^ I remember the blue Enterprise, with, of course, the raised grid-lines.

    Don't remember any black & chrome D7, and I did have a D7 from the later 70's, it was gray.

    I built one of the early 1970's Klingon battlecruiser models when I was a boy and it was definitely dark gray plastic with some parts that were covered in chrome. It also had, if I recall correctly, some translucent green parts for things like the windows.

    The strange thing is how CG that looks. Fantastic design, incredible execution.

    This is amazing. Absolutely beautiful work. I can't wait to see more photos of it. It would be awesome to see it in motion.

    I truly think this is the most beautiful variation of a Klingon ship I have ever seen... You are a genius...

    Looks like it would come from the same era--but it also has the curves of the Galaxy class. To me-this is what the Vorcha should have looked like. It has that softer, sleeker TNG look--yet is still quite agressive as befits a klingon vessel.

    This is one of those cases that absolutely I find it very hard not to agree. Even more importantly, I think this is closer how future Klingon vessels should look (i.e, Star Trek Online).

    Funny, I don't think the recent photos look CG at all.
