Kirok on Card Modelling, Feb 23

The news that the Enterprise for the new movie is basically the design by Gabe Koerner has got a few people on the Zealots forum working on a new paper model based on his work.

Lord Grey Tiger has released his collection of Star Trek: The Animated Series Hakos.

Zosho has two kits on his website marked as new, a Constellation class and a Romulan, D'deridex class Warbird as well as a redesign of his Sovereign class, Enterprise E. These are in addition to his Akira, Defiant, Sabre and plus photos of his build of Chippy Chua's Intrepid.

Has anyone built Clever Santaros' model of the NX-02 Columbia? Col. Kurtz seems to be having trouble getting the saucer sections together.

In mid-December, D-WHALE released a Cheyenne class on the Zealot forum which has been added as a download today.

Col. kurtz has posted a photo essay on his build of 'Edwards' Nebula class, USS Sutherland. He found major problems with the design of the saucer which he fixed with a workaround (helped by D-Whale). Essential reading if you intend doing this model. D-Whale mentioned that in "some few months" he would be releasing "my Nebula in two different versions." On a previous thread he also mentions the Krenim Temporal Warship from Voyager plus a Niagara Class and Freeedom Class to go with his Cheyenne class (see above) as a "Wolf 357 battle set".

Nothing (that's his handle) has done a photo essay on his build of Chippy's Intrepid class, Voyager.

The website has a collection of Star Trek Models, a couple of which look familiar, but none with the name of the designer tagged to them so I can't tell who designed them. All of them seem to be to a common scale, 1/1000. They have ...
  • Akyazy class action-perimeter cruiser
  • Caracel Warbird
  • USS Enterprise NCC-1701 Constitution Class
  • Klingon Cruiser D 4 Class (an original idea of Star Trek Museum)
  • Enterprise NX-01 NX Class
I suspect these are the work of Pericles although I believe they might be a different scale. I'm afraid I find his website to be very confusing - I'd appreciate an update of what he has available for download.
