Everyones Favorite Little Big Spaceship

Was bored and figured since I had a few minutes I would do a quick scratchbuild for a space ship.

I decided to do probably the worlds most famous and recognizable ship.


Granted its not perfect, being about 5mm high its not like it will be a daVinci or  even a Gold Demon contending model. I probably took all of 3 minutes to do this and that was waiting for the paint to dry,

For 5150 Star Navy I am thinking of using this as a Cruiser (Class 4 ship with 8 hull points. 7 points of Shields and 1 points of Anti-Aircraft  Batteries). The only reason I gave it the AA is because they are a defensive weapon.

Not sure what it would be in Full Thrust yet, will have to sit down and figure it out.

Now onto something not so familiar.

Over on the SCN forums (see link for Star Ranger Forums to the left) they are holding a Scratchbuilding contest. The Ship, Station, or Weapon should be between 6 and 8 inched long, and made of found materials, no parts from other ships, bitz, or parts from model kits, such as disposable razor, toothbrush, tic-tac container, etc...

I used parts from a Nebulizer mouth piece, gumball machine capsules and a little plastic monster that I found in the back of my vehicle.

I decided to build a space station, I am calling it Research Station 531.

Now here is the finished (for the most part) Station with two of the plastic dimestore ships, one primed black the other primed grey with some black added:

Welcome to Starbase Alpha Romeo Charlie (A.R.C.).

Here you will eventually be able to find background fluff for my Starship Project along with starship miniatures (as soon as I get some). If you are into Zombies check out my other blog Dougs land of the Dead, there I am running a contest in honor of starting this new blog up, You get to vote on the name of the primary faction that I will be using in my Starship Universe, and those who vote for the winning name will have their names put in a hat and one lucky person will win a Miniature of their choice from one of 6 manufacturers.

I am still deciding between Full Thrust or 5150 Star Navy as the rules I will be using, right now I am leaning more towards 5150, since I am already familiar with the Two Hour Wargames rule system.

I look forward to getting content on this blog and getting to know new gamers out there in Internetland.
