Default May the kitbashing begin!

I claim first dibs on ugly kitbashes... moved the saucer & neck forward to make it look more balanced.



What's sad, even though this was a quick 3min photshop cut & paste, it looks better than the official thing IMHO

and a second kitbash to reduce the taffy effect on the engineering hull

This. A little smoothing on the top of the secondary hull, and it'd look perfect.

new version, still need to smooth & texture the top of the engineering hull, apply proper perspective to the bottom of the engineering hull, and fix the error of the starboard pylon overlapping the hull.

Ok, I'll do one too... here is my version with a thicker main hull, more windows, I narrowed the neck so its not as sloped back and added the needed hull markings and a shuttle bay. I think after a refit, the dish wouldn't look so far way from the neck with the newer sleek inset dish, so I left that alone.

A merger between dv8pdx's kitbash and my kitbash

Just some subtle changes in the primary hull, deflector dish, secondary hull, nacelles... yeah, THIS is what I'd like to see:

Too much reflection on the bow. I'm amazed at how you seamlessly blend in small details and gradients on the engineering hull, how do you do it?
