USS Monoceros, LN-40 test bed vessel
nice work there. :thumbsup: Did you get the specs on the Gabriel that I sent you?
Yep, just haven't had a chance to go through it. Been swamped with minor things. I'll likely throw it into Jaynz #3, as well as the CODA WIP once I get back from vacation.
Santee Class Escort Carrier
Type A Administration Center
Nice! I like the detail in that.
Great work Vance. Are you planning on doing any other vessels with the LN-40 nacelles? Are you considering doing the Phase II Enterprise as well as other updated designs? Great work on the office complex, too.
When I get back from vacation, I'm going to do the Endeavour, and .. the destroyer... if I can at all remember the second series of the Saladin class to save my life...
Cochise Class Destroyer
Endeavour Class Heavy Cruiser
Kepler Class Transport/Tug
Corinth Class Frigate
Endurance Class Frigate
Now THIS I really like! Vance, could you please tell us more about this and your thinking behind it? This is something I could see myself wanting in my Starfleet Command Library project.
This was pretty simple. I was looking at the office complex from TMP and thinking of what it would look like for TOS. Simple enough, grabbed the lower center pylon from the K-series starbase, used the smaller complex as the pylon base, and then drew up a new series of cylinders to look like a simpler take on the admin complex.
Surprised at how well it came out, considering.
Your Corinth is pretty much a FASA Loknar
Yeah... and? I upgraded the Loknar with the Monoceros components... :S
Very nice TOS design... but I have a nitpick!
The thinking behind the K7 station was that it was pre-fabricated for easy set-up. Those saucer-like structures were made of segments, so they could be shipped out all folded up, then revolved into place and filled with oxygen and saloons and such.
Here's a picture of Gregg Jein's.
pictures of the original and it's inspiration, which barely show the fold-out saucer sections.
Your station saucer is a faithful interpretation of the old blueprints and model.
Superb job, Vance.
Pretty much still the case here. The main 'hub' is a smaller K-style saucer with the support pylon beneath it. The added discs are also modular and could be 'strapped on' as needed. What's shown is the 'planned arrangement' for the Type A station.
If you notice, the 'base' part is designed to look like the main saucer's base section, and not the hull connector, so it's a smidge different. I'll do the K-7 itself this weekend (I think) so you can compare and contrast.
Need to redo the Monoceros saucer as well...
