Is the Federation LTT based on the NCL frame or on the DW frame? I've got an extra DW and an extra Tug pod, and I wanted to convert myself an LTT.

It's based on the NCL, but nothing says you can't use your DW for it on a mini. Handwavium is a very powerful thing.

It is definitely based on the NCL.

The problem with using the DW to transport a pod is that its third (center) engine is located where the pod would need to go.

In SFB, they have introduced "theater transports" which are mini-tugs based on frigate hulls. Most races also get a DW version, but the Feds do not, and the engine arrangement is the reason why.

Makes sense - I couldn't tell from the cover of "Combined Operations" as to the base hull.

Thanks.

But don't let me stop you. Smile

There is nothing against not using the center engine on the DW, putting the pod there and calling it a LTT. As long as you are happy with the result, I don't think many are going to quibble.

I was just trying to give the "canon" answer, not tie your hands in any way ...

Cannon is what I was after - Handwavium will do for this conversio. Thanks!

Here's my Kit-bashed Federation LTT, with removable cargo pod/tow pad/neck (so I can use it as a stock NCL, as-needed):
Side View
Top View (with pod removed)

These pictures are from back in August, before I primed and base-coated the mini. It's in the queue for detail painting at the moment.
