Recently, I was commissioned to create a couple of Starline 2500 DDs.
Well, a DD and a DDL to be specific.

I shipped the finished minis off yesterday.
The DDL was created by cutting down and modifying a resin Federation CC mini.
The DD was created by cutting down a resin Federation BC mini.
I took no "in progess" photos of these minis, but am preparing to do another half dozen or so for myself.
I will take in-progres photos and create a step-by-step guide for any of those interested in the process.

Now, on to the pictures:

I may have asked this before, but have you considered doing your own conversion of the Two Moons-class fast destroyer while you're at it; or would you rather not chop up the CF parts you have on hand in order to make up the DDF?

I haven't made one yet, but I do have a complete set of USS Two Moons decals in ST2500 scale printed up... so its just a matter of time.

I haven't wanted to butcher one of my three CFs, but eventually I'll get a good deal on one (or get one as part of a package) and will make a Two Moons out of it.

So... if anyone has a Federation CF they done want...

Got around to making another DDL for myself tonight:
I started with a Federation Command Cruiser miniature..
But since I had an extra "upper" nacelle from a Fed dreadnought - I decided to use that:


Then I decided to make the miniature visually distinctive on the tabletop...
So I changed horses mid-stream and went with the neck off of a Federation BCH - including the gun-house.

In this image, you can see the locating holes in the saucer and nacelle, as well as the corresponding mounting pins in the neck.

And since I was asked if I'd ever kit-bash a USS Two Moons class fast destroyer...
guess what's next?








Give up?

The Two Moons looks nice!

Are you gonna give it the same blue nacelle hubcap as shown in Adam's art?

Gary: I have so many federation minis to paint right now... I'm not sure I wont just airbrush them concrete grey and call them done.
But if I do ever get around to detailing them, the DDF will have the blue nacelle domes ust like all of my 2400 series "fast" Feds.
