I am really not sure which Matthew intended Sandrine to create, but I for one think that this could be the CC. (If rejected, minor tweeks will turn it into a CB). I do not think that there is "enough more mass" to cause issues with the SSD and both ADB and Mongoose really WANT a unique specific CC that is different enough to be worth doing.

I'm liking this as a possible CB model with the extra stuff in the back being the C-Warp engine (or have I lost my mind, CB has a 2 box C-Warp, right?).

I can understand Mongoose trying to get different models out for the CC because that's more for us to buy, but would that mean a separate D7C and such? Could get silly if they want to do too many variants... But that's just my opinion, so take it for what it is...

If you really want to do a separate CC then the minimal addtional details are fine with me and it does look nice for variety. I am sure I will buy at least one.

I could rationalize that some of the systems internal to the saucer (labs, APRs, etc) were moved above the impulse engine to make room for the flag bridge complex deep inside the saucer.

It could also represent a later era CA/CC (still prior to X-ships); perhaps it has the same combat capabilities but the layout/systems were reorganized for improved operational efficiency, greater long term reliability, optimized manufacturing costs, new subcontractors providing different designs for subcomponents (e.g. engine struts) that meet the same requirements, etc.

Also, I really hope decals will be available. The main reason is that my personal standards of quality greatly exceed my painting capabilities for letters, numbers, stripes, etc.

Again I would like to mention that the more significant deck house on the original CC iteration could be potentially used for the Galactic Survey Cruiser to represent the additional labs and cargo. Cargo especially because you could then load/unload the cargo bays by external doors without having to use transporters.

I was not a fan of the original new Lexington images, but I do like the way they have refined the ideas here (the toned down changes to the rear quarter of the saucer) and I do like the changes to the warp engine struts (for this sub-class of ship). Overall, I love the level of detail. I probably would have skipped the original rendering of this ship (or else bought one or two as X-ships), but a few of these will find their way to my gaming table come Christmas time.

I really like this as a CB. Enough variation to be something of the late war era. The raised rear of saucer kinda reminds me of the rear of the NCL. The slightly swept forward warp pylons are also cool and getting towards the X-era.

Could the neck be strengthened or thickened to represent part of the added center warp?

If it is a CB, would the extra FH phasers be mounted on top or on bottom like the BC?

And obviously, the FH phasers need to be moved like on the existing CC.

Now I like this rendition of the CC/CB,very nice indeed. The rear deckhouse is sufficiently different,that you can now tell a CC from a CA,and it will work very well as a CB saucer with it's small warp drive. Cool Cool
