Here's one I did a while ago. Had a play with MS paint to give it a better background than my messy modelling bench.

All the best.

Well done. Always thought this looked purposeful design and more practical than many ST ships. I like the backdrop too.

Nice job Greg!
I'm not familiar with the ship (Star Trek was never really my thing, nor the sequels etc.) but that does look good!

Nice! By coincidence, we've just started watching Voyager on Netfix, and this ship is prominent in the first couple of episodes, before running into a Kazon ship.

Nice one Greg and I agree the starfield background is a big improvement on paint pots etc :grin:

Cheers guys. For comparison here's the original pic.

A bit of an improvement methinks.

All the best.

As ever, eBay is the go-to place for them, but I think you have mentioned you are not too keen on using it (which is perfectly fair enough!)
Otherwise, have a look at Jadlamracing who have an online retail outlet (as well as selling on eBay), or Hannants. They are both reputable online stores, and both can be paid by Paypal if you are concerned about card security. Otherwise, try having a look in your local area for model shows or Sci-fi exhibitions and the like; you're bound to find some kits knocking around.

If you like, have a look on eBay, and if there is something you fancy give me the item number by PM, and I'll buy it for you and post it on; you can send me the money when you receive the kit

Nicely done Gregers, but the pedant in me forces me to point out that it's Maquis, as in "French Resistance", not Marquis, which is a big tent. :)

Quite right too Bruce. Thank you for pointing it out. All I can say in my defence is French was never my strong point at school.

And the pedant in me is forced to point out that a Marquis is NOT a big tent, which is a Marquee, but a French nobleman, of which the famed de Sade was one...

;-P

Nice ship...

best,
M.
