Kearsarge class NCL

Post by Savion » Tue Jul 24, 2018 7:02 am

Hey, guys, it's been ages since I've been here... long story, but I won't bore anyone with the details other than I am finally getting back into my modelling and I would like to show the progress I've made on a Kearsarge class NCL from the Star Fleet Battles line of games.

This has long been one of my favourite classes of ships and it was realized as a vac/resin kit from the long-defunct McDaniel Models. I was finally able to score one, minus engines. I used a set of engines from an old scrapped ship too damaged to rebuild or repair. I cut them down to 75% the overall length of a standard Connie engine to reflect their proper in-universe standard; and aside from some mismatch from the built-in slight but still present taper, I was able to make them work.

The ship is getting close to getting its first coat of paint, but I'm still tending to some persistent gaps that are reluctant to close up!
