Found that styrene model kit bashes and 1/1 car builds work the same way.

In case anyone was wondering, I have found some time to work on this through the holiday season. Here is a teaser. This is a small squadron of scratchbuilt shuttlecraft that go with the main vehicle. They were made from some 1/72 and 1/48 bombs and fuel tanks. The scale is 1/700

The tanks on the left look like Soyuz orbiters in their shrouds. Where did the winged missiles on the right come from? They look verrry interesting.

The winged shuttles were formerly 1/48 fuel tanks (from an old Mig 15 or 17). The wings are 1/144 F-16 vertical tail surfaces.

Whole thing has some soviet style to me :) Well done :)
Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

In case anyone was wondering how this was going. I managed to put a coat of primer on this. I've been out of town the last couple weeks but had decent weather today and fired up the airbrush.



The basic ship



The various shuttles



The main engine pods



The space station base



Some small pods and antennae

Great stuff, ed!

I'd be hard pressed to keep track of it all but it looks like you've got it well in hand.

This is what I love about your builds, Ed - You start interesting collection of parts or kits, do some magic and then something awesome and unexpected appears!

Yup. That pretty much sums it up  :smiley:
You better stock up on water, canned goods off the shelves

This is the Roald Amundsen, CR 207. Solar Federation Navy Interstellar Science Vessel, Explorer Class. It is docked at Jupiter Station prior to it's first mission. Powered by 4 GE/RR NPCR-43 fusion powered ion drives engines, it is capable of sustained thrust at .20g. With the newly developed Hyperjump system, it is one of the first ships capable of interstellar missions. Designed for multiyear missions, it is fully self contained with research facilities, manufacturing and repair, food production, etc. A number of shuttles are part of it's complement. These provide couriers, supply, exploration, and other missions. There is one large SM-34t fully equipped laboratory and exploration shuttle capable of atmospheric missions to planets of up to 1.75 Earth gravity. A there also two courier shuttles capable of atmospheric missions. Twelve BL-234 cargo pods are attached externally. Loaded with consumable supplies, these can be turned into manned laboratories orbiting planets of interest.
