I've looked everywhere for them, at least the realistic places where they cold be. It's been 3 months since the move. I'm starting to lose hope. And so far God is not throwing me a bone

The problem is that the model is no longer offered on Shapeways. :cry: :crying: Even worse, I can't find the designer to ask him/her to make it available again. If I can't find it, it's lost forever.

I thought of that. Unfortunately curves and spheres are my Waterloo in 3D drawings.

I think I have a plastic sphere about that size in (one of) my parts bins.

Yeah, I suppose I could attempt to bash this... grr, it just makes me mad it went MIA. Gosh darn me for catching something that needed further puttying. Otherwise it would be in the "need to paint" box, where it was, safe & sound

Badly needed update. Some of the stuff that I've assembled so far and await to be painted & decaled:

I think I mentioned that a friend gave me a bunch of starship parts in 2013. While I had enough pieces to assemble the ship that they came from, I decided to do some kitbashes. The USS Wasp came from the VA Miniatures "Stingray cruiser." I didn't like the design, so I made the Prime Universe version of the USS Hornet. I used the "space warper" nacelles offered by itsjess and a photon rollbar that came with the lot. This is as close as I'll ever come to a fanboy design:
Wasp Hornet.jpg

The USS Irma came from the VA Miniatures "Command Cruiser." Again, I didn't like the design so I grafted a neck and saucer leftover from my Phase II Enterprise into the body and the MultiVerse sensor pod to create a cool science ship. The saucer was repurposed to create a new ship, soon to be unveiled:
Irma.jpg


The USS Tomas came from the VA Miniatures Dreadnaught. This I built stock:
Tomas.jpg


This is a 3D printed "Retro-prise." I was going to finish it as-is, but it ended up being much larger than a 2500 E, so I "converted" it to a 2500 diplomatic cruiser by adding a bridge module and leftover impulse engines from a Refit and the Gizmo Excelsior. She will be called the USS Kim Demongey:
Kim.jpg


This Hideki was enhanced by adding greebles to the ventral side based on the filming miniatures that Del posted in his Hideki build. My eternal thanks to him for finding and posting those pictures. I think it came out decently:

This is the MultiVerse tender:

Then I found these on Shapeways. The Hero Clix Nova class is dead on as the 2500 version based on the published 180m length. But as in all things Star Trek, there's an argument to be made that 180m is too small for the ship, especially based on the interior shots. It's plausible that the ship is 220 m, and these were close enough for 2500 versions of the Nova and Rhode Island variants. Here they are next to the OS Voyager and they look good:

Awesome work elgato,
its the other way around for us 1/4848 players - we want
the Nova class to be slightly smaller to be in scale with the 1/5000 defiant and the Heroclix Voyager etc,
as the Nova is the same size almost as Voyager :lol:

Those kitbash designs look AWESOME!

Do you have any other images of the Tender?
is that larger or similar sized to the Constitution refits? :D

They all look yummy El Gato. A pity they're all just 2500. :?

I'll be doing a 1/2500 Daedalus soonish. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Haven't had time to any of my own models for a while though. But I just got myself a 1/2500 (of course) BSG Valkyrie so I'll be doing some Vipers/Stealth Vipers to go with it too, as well as the XCV, Warp Delta. Really want the SS Emmette too but can't find one.

Models all look great mate, I've got both the OS Nova's and I'm happy with them sat next to Voyager.

Cheers
