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

    Here's another pic:

    @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.

    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.

    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.

    Arcturus looks great!

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

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

    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)?

    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.

    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.

    This is what i was working on:

    Insurgent class corvette

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