    I've always wondered what all the Constitution-class starships would look like lined up in port. Well, I've decided to use Rawen's models to find out. This group of ships is a combination of screen used/mentioned ships (hull registries from the ST Encyclopedia) and ships from the Starfleet Technical Manual.

    Constellation 1017 / Constitution 1700 / Defiant 1764 / Enterprise 1701 / Excalibur 1664 / Exeter 1672 / Farragut 1647 / Hood 1703 / Intrepid 1631 / Kongo 1710 / Lexington 1709 / Potempkin 1711 / Republic 1371 / Yorktown 1717

    I like the SFTM numbering the most of any done, but I'm usually watching ST-Remastered on the computer when I'm working on these, so I went with this mix. Lot of cutting the same shapes, but it's still easier than building 14 AMT models.:thumb:

    That will be quite a fleet of Starships.
    I am looking forward to seeing the final outcome.
    GOOD LUCK WITH THIS PROJECT!!!

    Permission to come aboard? Great idea, always wondered what the ships looked like right out the shipyard. Will need a space docking yard for them all now.

    Keep up the great job. :wave:

    :p Holy frak! I doubt that I would have the patience to build so many equal parts at the same time! hamr

    THIS IS IMPRESSIVE!!! WOW!!!
    Making 13 Federation Starships (at the same time) is a real test of one's patients.
    I thought that building as many Thunder Fighters as I have was extraordinary, but this is BEYOND BELIEF!!!
    You are doing an AMAZING JOB!!!
    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!

    Same here. I almost freak out if I have to build the same part just twice...

    Latest from the Shipyards

    Well folks, here's the most recent progress on the fleet. A serious case of the "blahs" kept me in all weekend and glued to this project. As of now, all the secondary hulls are complete and work has begun on the nacelles. If you are at all like me with a mind that races all the time, a project like this will slow it down. Hope you like the work so far.

    You're a braver man than I, the repetition would kill me.
    Great job so far

    No amount of money could compensate you or time, but I bet you would get a bundle of money for that collection if you offered it up as a mobile, or in some kind of stand configuration. I have never seen a collection like this, it rocks! Please, post some background size pictures as that would wonderfully grace many a Desktop. 1080P for me. :)

    Ma Poor Bairns!

    Warp drives complete as of last night. Nothing says "Old School" like cylindrical engines.

    You have a unique collection there. I don't think I have seen anyone do this yet.

    Have you considered asking Rawen for permission to bundle these so others could follow the path you blazed?

    Would you have a problem with me asking? Send me a P.M. if you would rather answer in private. Thanks! :)

    Rawen has posted his original Enterprise refit link on this forum, the link is still active, this is an incredible Enterprise!

    Oh, I've already downloaded, repainted and printed out the Refit Enterprise. It's on the list. Oh, the possiblilties...That model is awesome! Big Thanks to Rawen! His stuff is fantastic. Also have his small Romulan BOP and Reboot Enterprise to build. Hey Rawen, any chance of you sending a Klingon D7/Excelsior/Enterprise A-D our way?
