How are you planning on doing the pylons on the Larson? Attaching them to the body from the top or the side?

I need to come up with a better looking way to do mine. Basically, I just haven't been able to find good views of the Larson anywhere. Hmmm, just had a flash of insight... let's hope I can remember it this weekend when I get a few minutes in the shop!
Yea, I think that the two hangers on the outside edge is the way to go.
I have several dozen images of the TOS Larson, if ya want. I research ships before I build them. :D :lol:

And as a matter of fact... Yes I do. Several images of Larson's belly. lol

Here ya go:

My idea is to do something along the lines of these two.

I personally don't like the "V" step on the bottom of this one. But I do like the rear part of it (prolly incorporate so aspects of it on mine)

Yeah, you'll want to do something to the aft ventral side because that ship on the second picture is too plain. Generally speaking, the TOS aesthetic is minimal detail, but that is definitely too minimal.

But you know why that V is there, don't ya? It's because it's a Terran Empire ship ;)

Yea, it is way to plain... What I ment was those 2 square thingys that are on the 1st and 3rd images. And maybe add some more greeblies. We'll see.

Oh? No, I didn't know that! I just thought it was the hull extending down another deck, something like on the top of the Miranda/Peregrine hulls. (that's not just a design, it actually extends down. In other images it can be seen better.) Personally, I don't care much for that deck extention.

You know hoe the Miranda Class has those two "trenches" full of greebles on the dorsal side? They roughly correspond to the shuttlebays/shuttledeck. Maybe when you add the detail on the ventral side of your Larson you do something similar, having those square thingies imply there's a connection between that detail and the location of the shuttlebay doors

The "V" thingy! That's the detail I don't like about mine. Next time I scratch up a Larson, it'll look like that first pic you posted. Fits my sense of the aesthetic a bit better. Thanks!
i don't know. I'm making it up as I go.

Exactly why I'm not doing mine like that. Don't like that V at all! :lol:

I would ditch the dish hanging down. Build something in the leading edge. Ennex-like.
