These ships bring a smile to my face and take me back many a year.

Just out of curiosity....what other ships from this era to you have a particular interest in?
Thanks so much Warrior! Yeah, this is not a kit, all custom made. This is my favorite starship era (besides TOS) to work in.

I really love exploring the idea of creating other ship designs within this motion picture era. Whether they be frigates, destroyers, light cruisers, battleships, transports or carriers, I want to shed some love into developing the aesthetic. There's got to be more than glueing kit-provided primary hulls and roll bars into different configurations.

From the first 6 films, the only Starfleet ships we've seen besides Enterprise were: Reliant, Grissom, Excelsior, Enterprise B (Excelsior re-dress) and Saratoga (Reliant re-dress). Not a lot to go on. Reliant used basic components from Enterprise and dressed with tons of surface detail. Grissom was strangely dissimilar to anything established before. Excelsior was the E on steroids. So, I feel the playing field is pretty wide open. But at the same time I want to create a fleet as though Andrew Probert was uniformly designing them as he did the Refit Enterprise. Consistent in contouring, detailing, balance and markings while still being original. This is what's exciting about these builds.
