    USS Excelsior

    With the Space Office Complex / Regula One done, I thought about my next project. Working my way through the movies, the next ship would be the Excelsior. Although not the "nicest" design on purpose, she has a certain charme on her own.

    So here we go - about a days work so far...

    What a fleet you have

    I love your work. On your web site you gave us fantastic orthos of the Constitution Class and Enterprise remake. Then through this site you gave us a great ortho of the Enterprise D. Any chance of seeing othos of your beautiful Stargazer, Reliant and Ambassador? You are by far the best in the business. I enjoyed your spread on the Drex Files as well. We'd love more ORTHOS! Thanks again. Steve

    Awesome stuff as always, Tobias. It may not be the prettiest, but it's one of my favorites. I grew up watching TNG, so I have a great appreciation for the often used (as random ships) Excelsior model. Though, technically, the one you're doing isn't the one from Star Trek III, it's the one from Star Trek VI. The ship had a different bridge and different impulse engine housing details in Star Trek III.

    Seeing your skill and work always makes my mouth water, haha.

    I personally love the Excelsior Class... I share Sulu's admiration for her.

    Amazing work Tobias. All the more so when you tell us it was done in only a day.

    Looking forwards to seeing more.

    Looks like a great start so far.

    But please take a look at the following image of the original (mutilated) model: http://img109.imageshack.us/img109/871/p411entb.jpg
    a) Those superstructures containing the impulse engines and the B deck aren't completely flat on top.
    b) The horizontal cross section of the neck isn't completely flat (like the letter D), but is slightly curved outward in its back.

    It's better to be aware of those things during the early stages of a model.
    Somebody blow something up, I'm in a really bad mood. Thanks in advance.
