Hmmm... will have to pick up the 2500 version. That's a really nice design, another winner from Atolm

I found an old 1/72 scale Tholian webspinner that I purchased somewhere around 5 to 7 years ago? Maybe longer?

Anyhow, it's almost the exact same length as the Tholian Battlecruiser. My thinking is to maybe add some greeblies and call it a dreadnought.

Not sure how I'll proceed for sure, but the Tholians are now pretty well represented!

Apparently, StarFleet underestimated the Tholian threat!

From left to right: small blue Webspinners are from UGH! Models and based off the TOS Tholian 'Spinners (comes 6 to a set); towards the front, the slightly larger TOS 'Spinner is from Larson Designs, tho I'm not sure if it's still available or not (IIRC, it came 2 to a set); the big ship on the left is from UGH! Models and is a Tholian Battlecruiser, which I think was based off either a video game or an original design from ATOLM(?); the three small 'Spinners in front are from Federation Models (both the site and manufacturer), and are based off the ST:ENT (and also seen in the TOS: Remastered episodes) version seen in "Through a Mirror, Darkly" (come 3 to a set); and the large one on the right was originally designed to be a 1/72 Webspinner from ST:ENT, mastered by Pat Tomlinson, tho I forget the company name it was sold under. I'm "converting" that last ship to a 1/1000 Dreadnought (yes, I know SFB has a different idea on that! This is MY Trek 'Verse! Deal with it!)

oh dear goodness that is a lot of tholians!
thanks for sharing that. :vulcan:
I look forward to seeing what final paint and decal scheme or lighting you might go with.
(either internally lit, or display lighting etc).

they work so well together - that is attention to detail in the tholian kitmaking scene.

think of the web-spinner-ness!
(cue that mission from Trek:Shattered Universe)
or worse, borgified tholian web-spinny stuff. :lol:
that's all that's missing, a web-spinning part hehe.

:lol:

Couple of updated pics. Both large Tholians are now mounted on bases.

The Jem'hadar fighter in this pic is one I got from... someone something like 10 years ago. I have no clue who produced it, tho it is almost exactly 1/1000 scale.

No major changes and what I'm calling the Tholian Dreadnought still has no primer on it. That might change before the end of the year.

Prolly.... :roll:

I'm going to have to pick up some of those Tholian Web Spinners from FedMod. They're a nice for 2500 "cruiser" :P

The Battlecruiser is certainly an Atolm design.

Interesting factoid Erin from UGH! told me about the 72 Webspinner. Pat mastered only one part, designing it so that you create an entire spinner when you cast three parts off of it and put them together. UGH! plans on re-releasing it at some point, which will be part of my 1/72 collection.

That's why I initially bought mine, yep. :thumbsup:

It is indeed! As is the Ivarix Romulan Cruiser, IIRC.

Yeppers.

Necro-thread raising! :D

Looking for opinions: I’ve got several 1/1000 Tholian ships that I intend to start giving a base coat. I was leaning towards gun metal or something similar as a base and sussing out the rest of the colors from there.

C6FFD3A3-62D7-4F08-B0FB-8133C2F84BB6.jpeg

On the left is UGH! Models Tholian Battlecruiser. On the right is an older 1/72 scale Tholian cruiser from ENT’s first season, and fourth season. I’ve “converted” the latter to be what I’m calling a dreadnought.

A182AA41-BD73-4962-A607-EACFA14424D9.jpeg

Smaller Tholian “cruisers”(?), from left to right: Federation Models 1/1000 ENT, middle is TOS “The Tholian Web” cruiser from UGH! Models, far right is what was labeled a 1/1000 Tholian cruiser based of off “The Tholian Web”.


Any input is appreciated.
