Portare Class

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.

Portare Class:

Length: 279 meters
Width: 141 meters
Height: 67.2 meters

Crew: 29 plus 250 passengers
Speed: Warp 6.2
Armaments: None
Defenses: Sheilds
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.

As you know, the scifi is not my theme, but it's a great paint work.

Thanks Pablo - The aztecing is actually Enterprise decals I downloaded from Starship Modeler. To actually paint something like that would take an eternity.

Really cool! the graphics are great and the whole thing looks sleek like a sting ray (of some type)...

Thanks Pat - It really jumps out you doesn't it?
