Excelsior Class kit bash

Post by patrickivan » Wed Nov 21, 2012 10:38 am

Let's get the ball rolling in this category...

This is an old one I built that I'd like to share. The nacelles are from two markers from the dollar store and the rest is cut and paste from the excelsior along with some short strand fibreglass auto bondo.

And the back ground I made up for her.

The new science exploration vessel commissioned into the United Federation of Planets’ Starfleet is modelled heavily on the Excelsior Class space frame. The Sir John Graves Simcoe Class is primarily a science exploration mission vessel comprising of a crew of 425, and on her maiden mission, 22 civilian scientists, and 34 passengers.

She is outfitted with experimental warp nacelles that each contain their own M/AR warp reactors. Further ship energy resources include 3 reactors located in the secondary hull, impulse reactor in the primary hull, and multiple emergency back-up batteries throughout the ship. This technology is based heavily on the old Constitution Class power system. Starfleets R&D bureau is continuing to experiment with centralize m/arc to power ship systems, and multiple systems.

Commissioned in 2295, USS Sir John Graves Simcoe has been dispatched for a 1.5 year mission explore and chart 3 newly discovered systems on the outer rim of the Federation.

I really like this design a lot. I'd like to read your labels on the schematics and blue-prints but unfortunately I can't get them large enough to read.

HAHAHA. People posted and I had no idea. I'm a horrible OP. OPer.

It's completely fallen apart in my bin of models. I need to dust some off and get them rebuilt. I'm so lazy.

When I moved my models got badly damaged too. So I sympathize with you. I'm lazy about rebuilding them as well. Some of it's frustration looking at then being broken too,

She is in a class all her own.

I like her!

Thanks.

Ya- I look at her from time to time. It would be a lot of work. Maybe re-bash this bash into something else?
