    Hi folks,

    I was reading the Ex Astris Scientia article on the Excelsior study models, and they look like really nice alternate designs. I was wondering if anyone's done any CG models of them anywhere, may some orthographic finished views.

    Specifically the study model 1, four-nacelle study model 1, four-nacelle study model 2, three nacelled Excelsior, and the Constitution 'destroyer' from the DS9TM, Antares, and the Bradford. I am working up a wiki with a more 'fleshed out' Starfleet that's more military but still focused on exploration, and I'd like to include these as ship classes in the expanded fleet. Thanks for your help!

    You can find some of them at the old Google Warehouse. ;)

    There have been rumors that Eaglemoss may produce some, or possibly all, of them in their official ship line. Ben just confirmed they're expanding the series to 160 issues, which may include them. Memory Alpha lists all the ships they've developed, along with the planned designs.

    Now THAT thing would be an awesome model to have in the collection. I wonder if Ben knows about it.

    @Forbin might create something for you....for a price :hugegrin:

    He's a master level kitbasher who inspired me many years ago to do a couple kitbashes of my own.

    Over on DeviantArt, Calamity Si made a wonderful starship heavily based on one of the four-nacelle Excelsior study models.
