Nicely done - looks very close. Cleaner, actually, without all the random greebles. Possibly my favorite of the whole DS9 FrankenFleet.

I noticed you already put the decals on. Are you going to try to reproduce the somewhat over-the-top paint scheme she had with all the blues and golds?

I do wonder whatever became of the first one he made and if the kid (now an adult) knows how valuable it is...

No, the purpose of recreating the models was to show how they'd look as actual filming models as opposed to slapped-together-haphazardly-painted kitbashes. Hence the bluish base coat and light-blue warp grilles. I had been meaning to add more paint applications all over the model but got sidetracked by life.

"A film made in 2008 isn't going to look like a TV series from 1966 if it wants to make any money. As long as the characters act the same way, and the spirit of the story remains the same then it's "real" Star Trek. Everything else is window dressing." -StCoop

Very cool- I love your model build on this!

I'm torn on the scale thing- it really work best from a parts POV, when you scale using the Miranda bridge and torp launchers- but from a practical perspective, what possible use could this tiny ship have during peacetime?!?

Also, the forward-facing Excelsior hangar would be almost useless at the smaller scale- maybe housing some workbees or a lone shuttlepod.
