Anyone have comparison images of Sean's Titan versus the LDS one?
Huh, if you look at the cut out of the saucer edge, that "middle" window deck is very Wee.. where the top and bottom one seems like a full deck.. he he..
Luna on LD:
The 3d model I made long ago based on Sean's design:
The biggest difference is that they forgot to draw in the ventral phaser strip in LDS...
(And the rim windows, but those might have been dark during the adventure.)
I just see the differences in Luna-class designs (original v. LD) as being the result of a refit or variation (Mark I v. Mark II, perhaps?).
Like the USS Osler (probably designed that way on purpose), and the designs for the California- and Parliament-class.

Though one of the art guys from Lower Decks says that length is news to him, so it might not be correct. it looks scaled to the other ships based on window size.
Also they accidentally converted the Prometheus Meter length to meters thinking it was feet. So it's super tiny.
The same size is also given on the book cover of their model.
Damn that thing is big!
Check the Trekyards youtube channel. They've done a few videos comparing them.
Can they not hire one hardcore nerd to proofread obvious errors like this? Now it's gone from badass multi-vector warship to Prometheus-class Runabout
They won’t even get one for the tv shows, never mind this.
The Prometheus can't be smaller than the Defiant XD
No less than it deserves.
It’s always been 1360 feet long. Apparently someone made the conversion from feet to meters twice.
The Cerritos is a design that's grown on me, though I still think the nacelle pylons are too far forward. She may not be the most stunning hero ship we've had but she's better than some and she definitely looks fit for purpose in a support role.
That's the point, though. Cerritos is specifically not a hero ship.
The Niagara is too big, and the aforementioned Prometheus is too small.
Not if you compare the nacelles and bridge module sizes to the Nebula and Challenger.
Good. The call for "hero ships" is an idea that long has needed to be abandoned.
I compared the size of the nacelles with the nacelles of the Nebula and Challenger. They are slightly bigger than the other two ships. I believe they should be scaled the same. The size of the windows on the Niagara's secondary hull are also larger than the windows on the other two ships, implying that the overall ship is too big in comparison, despite the bridge module.
So side note, this isn't the first time Eaglemoss has had a Meter/Feet mix up. They originally listed the Vulcan ship from discovery at 142 'meters' when that was actually its length in feet.
