Those of you who follow ADB on Facebook have *probably* all seen these already, but I'd done some texture/painting over the Mongoose renders to get a feel for what they might look like as 'finished ships'.

Results as such:

Great work there. And while I'll probably do my Hawks in classic Rom dirty white, they do look good in your gemstone green. I especially like how the Rom Eagle looked on the beak of the heavy Hawk there.

FWIW, my plan was to paint the old 'Eagles' in the off-white colors, switch over to grey and blue for the Kestrels, and do the 'Hawks' in green.

So, something like what this guy did for the old FASA 'Stormbird' look:

Awesome artwork. I never really liked Roms in green, but that looks really great!

Awesome model/mini! What scale is that?

AFAIR, the FASA miniatures were 1/3900 scale.

But that might be fudging things a bit, as that would make it even smaller than the original Starline 2400 minis (at vaguely 1/3788 according to the recent blog post)...and I don't think the FASA ships were.

In any case...much, MUCH smaller than the new 2500s (1/3200).

Actually, I have some ofthe old FASA ships in my minis box. I use the D7 for a DX and the CA for a CX.

thay are indeed a bit smaller than the ST2200/2400's , so I'd say 1:3900 is correct.

Which really makes that paint job all the more impressive.

Yeah. I was just wondering what scale that was since those details are awesome! Even more awesome since it's the 1/3900 mini.

I didn't know that the actual mini had different nacelles than the D7. I know that the line art does, but I've never seen a Stormbird, all the ones I have are the D7. Cool that the nacelles match (they look like the ones on the Winged Defender).

I think that the guy who did it crafted the mini as a kitbash - so using the same engines as the Winged Defender seems a likely choice.

I don't believe FASA sold a different kit for the Stormbird - at least, in the catalog photo I'd seen, it was SKU'd as a 'Klingon D-7/Romulan Stormbird' in a single item.

Actually, that Stormbird isn't the FASA 1/3900 mini, but this one here...

http://tykensrift.blogspot.com/search/label/Romulan

... which does NOT detract from the cool standard of modelling skill on the mini. Scale is 1/1400. Knew I had seen it somewhere before.

Hang on, I found that guy's website. This is a 1400 scale D7 that he made some custom nacelles and decals for.

It still looks awesome. It's just not 1/3900 scale.

EDIT: Oops! Double post. My page didn't update. Hmmmm.

It's definitely about the best paint job of a 'Stormbird' I'd ever seen - didn't realize the scale was quite so big on it!

Still, that's basically the inspiration for what I'll be aiming at for the KRs from ADB/Mongoose. While I'm not a huge fan of much that came out of FASA's time with the Trek license, the paint job they proposed for the Romulan-crewed Klingon ships was a real gem.
