Leanna likes it so much she told me to use it the next time I print mini posters for retailers.

At the risk of being negative, I do have two minor quibbles.

1) The Klingon is firing his waist phasers. It would been nice to see the phaser bumps for the waist phasers on the other side of the ship. This is the only thing I would really like changed. (Also, if the FX phaser bumps should be visible, they should be added, too.)

2) Prior art of the Federation Battlecruiser showed two of the FH phasers on top of the saucer, and two on the bottom of the saucer. Not a big deal, just a change. (Maybe it is a different run of battlecruiser. Smile )

On the other hand, the CR is stunning. (I have always loved the "flame" paintjob for the Orions.)

And the shield effect on the PC is very cool.

mjwest - About the Klingon with invisible phasers, here's why: My good, fast computer died. So I'm working with a temporary replacement computer that runs 3Dmax excrutiatingly slowly. It makes it really difficult to work with the models. When SVC told me he needed this cover, it was a time crunch situation. That, combined with the slowness of my current computer, forced me to just use my old C7 model as-is. I totally would have loved to make a brand new high-poly C7 laden with detail, but alas, there wasn't time.

I modified the phaser arrangement on my Fed BCH because the old version was innaccurate. (At least according to the mini.)

Soon I'll have an even better computer than I did before. Once that happens, you guys are going to see a huge improvement in the quality of the models and the amount of detail I can put into my art. So get ready. Smile

Cool, I like the flame paint job on the Orion the best.

Great job Adam.

Just in case anyone is curious, FC:Graduation is a product that gives you all of the pieces of Klingon Border that are missing from FC:Academy.

So, if you buy FC:Academy and FC:Graduation, you will end up with everything in FC:Klingon Border. (Plus a couple of ships and extra counters.)
