    Well this all started when I was building Diego Cortes' model of this ship yesterday. I just wasn't happy with the shape of the saucer and a few other things so I decided to make a new version using Cmags mod of Shunichi Makino's Enterprise-A as a basis (Shunichi's basic components seem to be the standard for ships of the TMP era in card modeling anyway, and I like the extra level of detail on Cmags nacelles). Anyway here it is, Im just waiting for Shunichi's permission to distribute it.

    I believe I will also go ahead and make the refit version of the Ptolemy Class Transport/Tug

    And maybe even the refit Federation Class Dreadnought!

    Cool Nacelles

    A Ptolomy II class would rock something fierce!

    USS Xerxes Download Problems

    Hi sidewinder81777, Thanks for that really nice piece of work!

    Sadly, right up to this moment, MediaFire keeps telling me repeatedly

    The page cannot be found

    Is this a mistake in the provided link, or a MediaFire hicup?

    Now You see it....

    Right now MediaFire is up and running again, but watch your step just in case...

    Just one simple question, sidewinder81777: is your Xerxes in scale with Shunichi Makino's Enterprise (because i don´t know that model´s scale),
    and if it isn´t, could you provide those of use mad modelers who like it BIG with a version in the appropriate scale?
    (Hint: i´ve got an A3-printer, and i´m not afraid to use it!)

    Aaaaand, most important of all, i am already really grateful for the model you have presented us with!

    (As in "We are unworthy! We are unworthy!" :inw: :inw:)

    This model is 1:1700 scale, while Sunichi's model is 1:1000 scale.


    I like it, Sidewinder! It's a perfect addition to my fleet. Would you consider making an assortment of new parts with additional registration numbers? Perhaps just the panels that contain names and registration numbers instead of whole saucer and warp engine parts.

    Mediafire stinks... :) (Nothing personal!)

    I have made this offer before to others and no one ever takes me up on it but I will offer it anyway. Maybe now that more people have heard of my business it will go further ;)

    I will offer free hosting to anyone that would like free hosting for a free card model related site. I wont allow sales as that would be direct competition for me so that would be silly!

    You would get a subdomain that would look something like http://sidewindersplace.ecardmodels.com (no this does not exist so dont click it) I also will not allow ftp access to the server as this is where I keep all my business files. However I can install several types of software instantly for you to use on your site...

    I am considering upgrading my site to allow me to host actual sites for people so they can have their own control panels etc but I dont really know if that a smart move right now economically.
    Let me know if you are interested...
    Thanks!

    Hey cgutzmer, is there a reason that this thread keeps asking me to input my username and password? :confused:

    I noticed that too Millennium. Thats awesome Chris! I think I just might have to take you up on it, let me whip up a website and I'll email it to you and you can do that magic you do.

    Ditto on the password prompt - must have something to do with the pasted in list of services I figure. You might want to pull that out and paste it into notepad and then back into here.

    And that's a great offer Chris, I don't think I'll take advantage of it for the time being but may in the future. Very generous of you! Be sure to get some free advert out of it tho, say a discrete banner on those sites you host free. I'm sure they won't mind anyway.

    As I write this, Diego Cortes' Xerxes sits half built on my desk. I warped the saucer and stalled on the nacelle. Your update couldn't come at a better time. Thanks sidewinder81777! Now we got a Xerxes 505 Refit and a Xerxes 505-A. Variety and variations; always a winner. Way too cool!

    Hello Sidewinter,

    Great job, and nice refit:thumb::thumb:

    Maybe it's possible to re-scale to 1/1000....

    Thanks for all :wave::wave::wave:
