Posted 09 October 2018 - 07:18 PM
It's a beautiful kit and @ 1/1400 it's almost 18" long.....
I should have the kit next week.....I will keep you guys posted....
Here is a little bit of starship porn until I post again LOL....😎😉😀

Lovely, can't wait to see! Show it next to your 1701-D (always enjoy seeing scales/having a point of reference).

Take a look at the armament section and the main computer specs...
In 2380 a new and advanced class of Starship entered service in Starfleet. The class was designated a multi-mission explorer and was test-bed for a number of experimental technologies, including quantum slipstream drive. As of February 2381 there were seven vessels of the class in service.
The Vesta Class starship USS Aventine was the test-bed for a number of new Starfleet technologies, including quantum slipstream drive which could allow the vessel to travel 65,000 light years in just three months. Systems installed as part of the slipstream drive included a quantum field focus controller at the front of the ship's main deflector and a chroniton integrator. The quantum field focus controller allowed the starship to keep shields and communication online and at 100% during slipstream travel. It could also be used as a beam intensifier. If the ship is heavily damaged and the field focuser is still online, power from the phasers and shields could be rerouted to the main deflection system and be used to ether create a shield bubble or a high intensity phaser beam which could be sustained for as long as power can be routed to the deflector array. The chroniton integrator could be used to take sensor readings several seconds into the future when the ship was using its slipstream drive.
Other experimental systems aboard the Aventine included a multidimensional wave-function analysis module, and a sympathetic fermion transceiver. Some of the systems being tested were deemed top secret. The multidimensional wave-function analysis module allowed the Vesta-class starship to detect inter-dimensional rifts in subspace and temporal distortions in space time up to 23 light years away, and it also emits a multidimensional gravaton shield which in theory can reverse the effects of a dimensional worm-hole e.g. a worm-hole absorbs light and matter, but with a Multidimensional wave-function analysis Module matter i.e. a starship would be pushed away from the event horizon.
The Vesta Class ships also played a major part in the Borg invasion of 2381, most notably the aforementioned USS Aventine. However, because of the class's use of several experimental technologies, much of the classes history is currently classified, however in the early 2390s the class was upgraded with new Type-XIII phaser arrays and improved power allocation systems.
2369: Starfleet issues a general design brief for a multi purpose vessel capable of deep space, combat, and diplomatic missions. The general idea is for a modular starship based around the specifications of the Sovereign class currently being built.
2370: Starfleet views the Theoretical proposals for the Vesta. After deliberation the Vesta's primary Design is approved and briefs for the propulsion, computer, weapons and spaceframe parameters are sent out to Starfleet Design agencies for consultation.
2371: Propulsion Dynamic are approved and sent to the Jupiter Station for in-depth study. Later in the year MARA design is standardized for the Vesta Class. Spaceframe design is approved and full specifications are forwarded to Utopia Planitia for designations. USS Vesta Production begins with a projected 9 year turnover for the Prototype ship. Saucer Section is redesigned.
2372: Design work on Warp Coils are approved for the Vesta Class. The Stardrive section nears chassis completion. Saucer section nears 30% chassis completion. Warp Nacelles are redesigned. Sensor suite is redesigned based in part data learned during the USS Sovereign's trial runs. USS Aventine begins construction.
2374: Primary and secondary chassis's now at 100% completion. Computers are delivered for fitting work.
2375: Work continues on habitat and out hull sections for USS Vesta. Late in year computer cores are activated and ship functions begin to be transferred from station control to ship control. Bridge module is designed. Weapons systems from Sovereign class modified for the Vesta and installed.
2377: Computer system now operating at 60% of maximum. System expected to become self aware within the year. Warpcore begins primary testing. Antimatter regulation control is found to be outside acceptable levels. Primary Magnetic containment malfunction found to be a problem. Stardrive section near completion with final attachment of secondary navigational deflector array. Bridge module attached to Primary hull.
2379: Warp Core passes Review Three and it tested to 85% peak. Computer system fully self aware and umbilical from the station are cut as the ship become self sufficient. Impulse systems pass Review Three and being autonomous low level power control. Secondary backup generators are shut down and become Auxiliary system control. USS Vesta leaves dry dock for primary testing.
2380: USS Vesta goes to Utopia Planitia late in year and Warp Stress Coating is applied. USS Vesta begins deep space assessments. USS Aventine construction completed.
USS Vesta returns to Utopia Fleet Yards for final exterior markings and paint. On 11, March 2380 the USS Vesta is officially commissioned by Starfleet during a brief ceremony. bridge plaque is put in pride of place and Deltan Captain Hobas takes command. USS Vesta is ordered to begin shakedown cruises estimate to last two years.

I really like this class of ship. The Vesta class is also used in the Voyager books. The U.S.S. Vesta herself is a member of the Full Circle fleet exploring the Delta Quadrant and is the command ship for Vice Admiral Janeway.
That's awesome..... I need to start reading Trek books again.

That look like a cool kit. Keep the progress pics coming.
The details are hard to see in the photos but they are all there.... Color me impressed!!

Very intrigued to see how this turns out. You can kind of see the details in the pics, but I’m sure they’ll pop once you get her painted.
Definitely, Alteran.... Its going to take some time, and a LOT of masking tape, but she will get there!!
Here is where she is at now.... Her seams are looking better and I have a cote of primer on...

Thanks JMW !! The detail really helps...
