Ambitious.

I know which of those I'd like to see done, but they're all good! Can't imagine how you resist temptation and have all those unstarted kits about.

Looking at them I just realized how many constitutions I have.
And the 1/350th refit box is actually holding parts to a galaxy class.

So my choices are,

Alternate time line Constitution Class
1/350th NX-01
1/1400 Galaxy Class, possibly converted to a Nebula?
Klingon Bird of Prey.
1/537th Constitution possible converted into an Akira configuration.

The 1/1000th refit and TOS might have an interesting idea. Imagine if the TMP enterprise was meant to represent a retcon of the shape of the original enterprise. Imagine a TMP back dated to a version from tos so as if all they changed was the engines, and torpedo bay. TMP saucer and engineering hull, straight pylons and cigar nacelles from TOS all grid lines filled in torpedo bay removed. TOS seondsor dome, bridge and impuse engines. painted in TOS colors..... does that make sense?

Kinda like that but backwards.

If the TMP Enterprise is considered definitive, and all that was done to make it from the original constitution was new engines, bridge, and torpedo launcher and deflector...what would that previous version looked like?

Hey, hey! The Phase II in a contest has been done before. Granted, not done well, but still...


:P

Just kidding. Steam, I'm looking forward to your work on it if that's the direction you want to go.

EDIT: Disregard I did not commit to this and instead I did a Constellation class ship.


OK, I'm committing I will build a TMP Era Akira style ship.

Here's the backstory. This is not a typical Starfleet ship. It's a JAG internal Affairs ship. Admiral McGann Commands the missions. His crew investigates crime scenes, conducts legal proceedings and transports prisoners. However his crew of Lawyers, Crime Scene Techs and Bureaucrats could hardly pilot a state of the art starship. For that they rely on Captain Davidson. Davidson is an Captain who never wore a gold shirt. He wears Engineering colors and is the only Captain of Engineering commanding ship. He has little to no interest in the ships missions and find a strong sense of pride in making sure the Admiral never has to think about the workings of the warp core.

For this build I will be using a AMT 1/537th Enterprise Kit. I will be using stock styrene to make an akira shape out of it. To support the back story this ship will have two bridges.

The true bridge will be moved back and attached to the impulse deck. I've always felt that it would make alot more sense in the older ships for the command deck to be closer to the inner working. Davidson's engineering command crew will only be a few rooms away from the warp core.

The Admiral's deck will be a showie gallery further forward where he and visiting brass can watch the stars and call orders to the engineering deck.

I am planning on lighting this ship.
