My updated version of this wonderful ship, again based upon Primus's design but with far more changes. An almost completely redesigned saucer section removing the 'brick steps' to replace with slopes and some extra added detail. Some tweaks on the Engineering hull and redesigned nacelles.
About this creation
A good shot below of some of the new detail, namely Shuttle Bay 1. Can also see the dark grey Phaser array which is mirrored on the underside.
I love this shot below, you can see the more rounded shape of the new nacelles and you can also just make out the transparent plates used at the front to represent 10 forward.
Also made some changes to the deflector dish to add a bit more colour....
A few more photos added, next two show the saucer seperated from the Engineering hull...
.....and the final two photos show the modular construction, 7 main sections built seperately then added together.
Very happy with how this one turned out. Thanks again to Primus for the inspiration.
Have now included LDD file. The model is in bits in the file because LDD won't allow me to put them together, but i'm sure you can work out from the photos which bits go where.
Wow, that's cool, instantly recognizable as a Galaxy Class star ship! The shaping is awesome and the seperation funtion is included, too! Great job, fellow Trekkie (or Trekker if you prefer that)! LLAP
Thanks to everyone so far for your kind comments, i wasn't expecting such a response! I will take some of your suggestions on board. I will see if I can get some photos of the ship on a black background and with the saucer seperated. My next task will be to take it apart carefully so I can contrusct in LDD so I have instructions. I already know however that the model can not be completed in LDD but I can build it in 7 seperate pieces which can easily be put together, in fact I will try and get a photo of these seperate parts as well.
So sorry that I missed V 1, just looked at it. It was great already, but V 2 is even more awesome! I really dig the improvements on the saucer section. You did this awesome ship perfect justice! ~Cheers, Marc
