    Time for my annual (or tri-annual, or... whenever) dusting of the Trek models. I laid them out on my drawing board for group pics while I was at it:

    The 1/537 kitbashes and conversions:

    The 1/1400 original kitbashes:

    1/1000 "other" which includes kitbashes, full resin kits, or conversions of other peoples' designs

    More 1/1400 resins, plus an AGT conversion

    I've admired these models for years; they're instantly recognizable.

    More models, more dusting!

    The "various scale kitbashes" shelf:

    ...and lastly (yes, I'm done!) the two 1/3700 kitbashed starbases with kitbashed GameScience ships (with casualties of moving)

    :D Good to see SS Reeses again, that was the first pre-TOS ship I really liked. :mallory:
    Of course you've got an EPIC fleet there. :mallory:

    sweet! nice collection, seen some of them over the years.. nice to see who owns them :)
    Question.. is 3700 scale popular? Had some ask for my 3d stuff in 3700, and just wondering if I should offer more in that scale.
    Got a Repulse! Sweet! Nice to see Ugh kits built up!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I don't know about "popular", but it was the scale of those old GameSciense/Starfleet Battles minis from the 1970s. I have a ton of them, so I naturally used them for the space stations, which dictated the scale of the stations.

    @Forbin, the breadth and depth of your modeling oeuvre is astonishing. Other than letting us take a peek, I’m curious whether you’ve ever shown your work IRL (say, at a convention)?

    Our local hobby shop (now long gone) had a yearly sci fi day where I'd display a few of them. Then our friend @Cireskull talked me into bringing a dozen kitbashes to JerseyFest once. It's way too much trouble to lug them around without breakage, and it's too much human exposure for this radical introvert. :lol:

    Sometimes the box full of Gundam parts comes in handy. :lol:

    Oh, and, the nacelles are highlighters.
