Here are some images of my kitbash 1/537 scale Portare Class Starship.
The Portare Class is a work horse essentially built for cargo and transport.
The galactic equivalent of a Greyhound bus if you will.
This particular serves on the Alpha Centauri run.
Length: 279 meters
Width: 141 meters
Height: 67.2 meters
Crew: 29 plus 250 passengers
Speed: Warp 6.2
Auxiliary Craft: 1 Work Bee, 1 Shuttlecraft, 1 Repair Wagon
I built this model using parts mostly from the old AMT Enterprise kit as well as parts from the Polar Lights Enterprise and the AMT Enterprise C as well as a tank wheel from a Tiger Tank.
