Constitution style U.S.S. Constellation.

This is a constitution style ship using Kelvin parts. I also got carried away with this ship and added a variant with 2 long nacelles and one short nacelle. sort of a Dreadnought and Armstrong inspired.

U.S.S. CHALLENGER

U.S.S. CHALLENGER was originally going to be the constellation but I decided to make it the challenger in reference to a design in one of the old trek Comics.

This is the 5-view of the Newton. There are still some small details that I will need to attend to. On this drawing I have added a page for the warp engines and the a 5-view of the primary hull.

Mayflower

Here is the Mayflower class. I decided after finishing this ship to change out the smaller nacelles with the larger nacelles and add a secondary hull. I called this the Defiant.

I am sorry for taking such a long break but I have finally finished the Kelvin kit. The kit has the Primary hull, secondary hull and 2 nacelle variants. The first 2 ships are the Kelvin and the Armstrong. Let me know what you think of these.

HERE IS ANOTHER INTERMIDIATE UPDATE

On the 4th page is an aft view and a couple of the pods. The topside and the side are close to complete. The keel is 60 to 75% complete. I have not started the front view but that should not be hard since I have completed the pods already.

Soyuz preview

This is taking a little longer than I thought so I thought I would update the preview pic for the Soyuz. I am also trying out a multi page PDF. Make sure you view all 3 pages for the top,Keel, and side view.

Here is yet another version of the miranda class. This is the saratoga from the premiere episode of DS9. I've tried to make it as accurate as I could. The one thing it lacks is a photon torpedo tube.

MIRANDA MKII

There are a couple changes that I made on this ship. The most notable is that I was able download the trek hull font and use them with my drawing program. I then straightened the lower part of the warp nacelle pylon. Finally I finished with some detail on the torpedo deck.

USS Reliant 5 view

This ship was a lot harder to do than I expected. The torpedo deck was exceptionally difficult it was hard to get the dimensions to match correctly from front to side to top. I had the engine pylons flair out to match the front views but I think that I will also try a version of this ship with more vertical pylons. I will also publish views the pylons and the parts by themselves in the future. USS Reliant Top

Knox short 5 view

I've labeled this the Knox short because I found that when I use some of the most common Knox drawings as reference I found that the top and side view made it so that the bottom lip of the disc would be removed from the aft area. I also made some adjustments to allow for a deeper shuttle bay on the bottom side of the hull. finally the top view is still showing distortion after I convert it to PDF. It looks like I will probably have to redraw that section to fix that issue.

Tool kits

AS you can see below I have figured out how to post PDFs on the blog. All of the new kits will be published in PDF. There are a lot of advantages to using PDFs as a medium. The First it is very easy for me to convert from the original format. I was converting these to PDF and then coping the pics over to a jpeg format. The next advantage is the PDF files are tiny compared to the jpegs. Even with such a small file you can zoom in and get some great detail. The PDF also keeps the same scale.
The new drawings will be in a 1/1000 scale(There is a setting in the new program that allows me set scale{1 cm=10 M}). The first drawing is the Enterprise A and it will be 30.5 cm. I will do my best to provide 5 views of all visible parts.
The drawings will be best viewed by the latest version of adobe acrobat. You will be able to copy the individual part by opening the tool tab in acrobat, highlight the 'select and zoom' option and choose the 'snapshot tool'. The snapshot tool allows you to surround the parts with a blue box, then you can press "ctrl C" or right click to copy. The more you zoom in the more detail you will be able to capture. If you copy parts at 400% magnification then you need to copy the other parts at 400%mag. otherwise your parts will be out of scale with each other.

In the immediate future I will be working on the Miranda hull (3 sizes), 2 versions of the Belknap secondary hull, and a Federation Class secondary hull.
Subject wise I hope to cover TOS, NUtrek, Excelsior era, and TNG era in the future.

Scimitar

The following ships are from Starfleet Prototype. I have added the keel and aft views.




Decatur

The decatur is a modified version of the Belknap it is basically the same as the Acsension in the previous post but minus the third engine.


The Ascension

I took the Belknap Drawings and added a larger Primary hull, with the impulse engine from the S'Harien (I think this engine would be a great representation of the FIG-1, and I added a lengthened secondary hull with a larger torpedo deck.
