Here are some images of my 1/1400 scale kitbash of the Hoplomachy Class Starship the U.S.S. Reluctant.
Based off the the Sovereign Class's secondary hull The Hoplomachy Class is built for one purpose. War.
After recent experiences with the Borg, The Dominion, The Cardassians and the Remans it was felt that the development of a purely military vessel was necessary. Based off already existing designs the Hoplomachy class can be quickly and easily produced.
Length: 515.4 meters
Width: 168.3 meters
Height: 83.6 meters
Crew: 389 officers and crew
Speed: Warp 9.986
Armaments: 6 type 12 phaser arrays
10 torpedo launchers
2 Lazarus Systems type 9a phase cannons
Defenses: Deflector shields 7 layer
Auxiliary Craft: 8 work bees
4 shuttlecraft (2 with warp capabilities)
Affiliation: Federation, Starfleet
This model was kitbashed from AMT's Enterprise E model kit as well as parts from my spares box. The 2 heat dissipation units atop the warp nacelles are actually snow skis from a 1/32 scale DeHavilland Tigermoth kit.
The aztecing decals were downloaded from Starship Modelers web site onto Testors decal sheet using my trusty printer.
