This threat will be met with the Federations Task Force GB, comprised of the starships Spengler, Stantz, and Venkman. The USS Zedmore will be joining them, in route.

Yeah but their combined firepower won't be enough. They'll have to cross phaser beams

Ask and ye shall receive!

Goz'r receives an upgrade! I added hull plates from Aztek Dummy, an armored bridge, aft lower sensor emplacement, and more weapons hard points. He now has dedicated heavy disrupters located on the front of the secondary hull, with each having a 10• arc of fire; two additional photorp tubes on the lower secondary hull; and standard disrupters in similar positions to those on the K'T'Inga on the "neck" of the connecting boom, and in either side of the hangar module.

Man does he look good with the plating. Amazing what a coat of primer can do.

IKR?!?

Still haven't decided on a base color. My compressor is down, so will have to go with mostly Tamiya rattlecans and hand brushing for the details. Considering a OD Green.

Recommendations?

Ok, I decided to go with Tamiya rattlecan AS-14 Olive Drab (USAF). I like how it turned out, tho it's a bit darker than I thought. I'm thinking when I get to the point where I hit it with dullcote that maybe it'll lighten up just a bit.

And in formation with Gr'oth and IKS Amar, a D-7M K'T'Inga subclass.

Now I just have to decide on detail colors and accent colors....

awesome!
that is some nasty klingon hardware indeed.
upgraded, that thing is going to be a real threat (I can picture the Starfleet Academy game simulator or klingon academy simulator missions with that...)

They'd go great in GOBS or the new Modiphius Trek Adventures game,
heck, even in the scale-conversion FASATrek.
at 1:1000, you'd be somewhat more limited in overall scale to space 1v1
though that'd be awesome, to see some 1:1000 or 1:1400 'exhibition scale' matches.
