Fleet Scale Ships/Starship Combat News


Late last year I joined an excellent forum called Starship Combat News

Lots of very interesting stuff for anyone who likes Sci fi ships. ….there is also a trading post/orbital shipyards section where you can get in touch with people who make their own ships to sell, one such person is Scouls502 you’ll need to join the forum to speak to him and all the other guys who make stuff.

I was able to pick up quite a few ships to fill the holes in my space fleets, Scouls502 also very kindly made me a little proxy for Starbug……pictures will follow!

Amazing detail on all his ships, and a nice guy to boot….highly recommended!

Rebel Base…..in an Asteroid


I needed a rebel base and decided to modify one of my Asteroids for this…it then lead to a couple more being modified for defence turrets!

Borg Cube


This is one time i took a hit on the scale issue! A 1/7000 scale borg Cube might actually be the size of my house so went for this model from Furuta.

I assembled it (not hard!) and gave it a completely new paint job

Here it is in combat with the Defiant

USS Defiant


This is a little Gem of a model 1/7000 scale is small and i couldn’t really do much detailing on this. it took a long time to find someone that made a likeness in the correct scale but eventually found it on shapeways here.

It is printed in clear plastic, detail is superb, smooth and none of the texture normally associated with the basic material (white strong flexible)

Ambassador Class


This Ambassador Class Star Ship is simply amazing in it’s detail

in 1/7000 scale and from Shapeways it is a likeness of, not an exact copy , but I really think this is one of the best Star ships available from that site. A pleasure to paint…one of my new favourites!

USS Excelsior…..Heroclix repaint!


This fits in nicely with 1/7000 scale and is one of  a handful of ships that does, Can’t say i liked the paint job when it arrived, could have had more detailed so decided to repaint it and ty and keep the decals! So quite a useful ship from Heroclix for me.

This isn’t an exact reproduction of the paint job but it is more in the style of !!

but I like it and that is all that counts!
