    Surya Class Frigate

    TEN YEARS IN THE MAKING! (Seriously, I started this mesh in 2007!)

    My take on aridas sofia's U.S.S. Surya. Precursor to the Avenger class (e.g. U.S.S. Reliant).

    There have been other versions of this ship that were closer to the design details of the 11 foot Enterprise model. For this I've kept it 100% Franz Joseph Technical Manual and as close to aridas' original design (with some help from Todd Guenther's updates).

    I start with a generic (but pretty) beauty shot.



    Here's a second image as the U.S.S. Odin meets up with two Saladin class destroyers.



    Enjoy! There will be more to come!

    Awesome stuff, Bill. You did a great job of sticking with this, a fantastic job on the model and a wonderful job on the images.

    Welcome Home, Mr. Bailey - Fesarius and U.S.S. Brilliant

    Thanks so much, everyone.

    And now, a Very Special Guest Star! A few months ago I started on a model of the First Federation ship the Fesarius (50th anniversary of The Corbomite Maneuver). It led to some interesting insights as to the construction and lighting of the original model.

    Here is the U.S.S. Brilliant rendezvousing with the Fesarius to retrieve Lt. David Bailey from his extended assignment.


    A second shot, showing off less of the models but more of an homage to the original shot from the episode.


    Enjoy!

    Dude, that is awesome. I love the Fesarius, you did an awesome job on that. I really love how you both showed how huge it is, and how the yellow plays on the hull of the Brilliant. It looks brilliant.

    Thanks all!

    Here is my data page (a la Franz Joseph's Star Fleet Technical Manual) for the Surya:



    And for those who never saw them, here are my completed pages for the Saladin class destroyer and the Federation class dreadnought. I'm gaining on having the whole fleet!






    Enjoy!

    Awesome stuff, Bill. Though, how do the Surya and Federation have the same number of officers?

    Well, I double checked and indeed they do. The Fed number is obviously from the Technical Manual, the Surya comes from Ships of the Star Fleet.

    The Federation class does have quite a few more crew.
