Default 1/350 Constellation Class (Stargazer)- Just a little project

Well, here she is. I, and a few of my friends have been working on this 1/350th scale girl on and off for 2 years. I had to totally redo the top of the saucer when I discovered everything was off by a 1/8 of an inch to one side. She is almost complete except for the finishing the nacelles and a few more areas to putty and clean up. I set some of the greeblies on her just for show.

Once finished, I plan to mold and turn this into a vacuform and resin kit for sale. No time frame, but I hope to release it this year, but I won't know until I have successful pulls. I hope you guys like it.

Scott

I was hoping to do a shuttlebay in her as well, but seeing the one you did for the refit, I am not sure I could do it justice. I will probably give it a shot though. I will have to wait until I get some vacuform shells pulled. It should be fairly straight forward. No sloped angles like on the refit of TOS E.

Thanx Vaderman but didn't the Stargazer have a shuttlebay modeled more after TMP Refit and not the 1701-A version?

I don't think that it was ever seen or mentioned. If you have any references that I could refer to, that would be great.

Looks good, Scott. I think having a forward hangar bay will really enhance the kit, as well.

I think this will make a few folks a bit happy.
Nicely done sah!

To quote my little green friend- "Size matters not." Thanks for the support. I have been wanting to get this project finished for awhile. Git side tracked for a bit, but I can now concentrate on it while Richard works on the TOS E parts.

She may be ugly, but she's got it where it counts. Thw ship really grows on you after awhile.

Umm...aren't you in league with the wolves trying to gauge modelers for all their worth?


Looks great Scott. About time we get to see the ol' girl. I've always liked Picard's first command.

I could build the components for the shuttlebay & control room for casting, the bay would be easyer to build for lighting with clear castings. I have been tossing the idea around in my head for this very task, I got the basics figured already.
