Discovery USS Enterprise

Post by shan2371 » Wed Feb 21, 2018 9:02 pm

So I am trying to recreate the new 1701 from Discovery.
Cannibalizing a 1000 refit and tos model and adding new features from styrene. Wish me luck
Progress so far

Excellent work! What parts from each kit did you cannibalize?



Asking for a friend :)


Looks like a TOS saucer, nacelles and deflector dish and refit pylons and back of engineering?

score!
it's better than the one which appears in ST:D already :D
"made from only 100% Prime-verse parts" that's the prime-continuity difference. :lol:

I actually feel like it is easier to believe that this Constitution becomes the Constitution Refit than it was to believe the TOS Connie got that much of an overhaul while still supposedly being the same ship. I can't say I love that windshield though.

The neck looks shorter. Did you use the TOS version or the refit version minus the photon torp housing?
