Hi, I'd like to share a project I'm in the middle of working on - making some early Star Trek era ships for Dave Bissig, who is reimagining the early UE/Federation timeline and putting his own spin on things. You might have come across some of his work via videos he's done with the Trekyards gang.
He needed a DY-100-esque looking ship. So I kitbashed some of my older stuff, and blocked out a new front end that had a DY-100 style submarine sail and pointy nose.
That has since expanded into two variants, a pre-warp sleeper ship, and post warp freightliner:
The idea is for modular configurations, depending on the mission:
Since I'm making things modular, I decided I may as well resurrect my old unfinished XCV-100 ringship freighter and give it the same new warp ring drive as the DY-500:
As it stands right now, I've finished texturing this forward section and am going to make a start on the cargo pods over the weekend:
