Hi all! Just after I've finished the Borg rogue Ship I decided to make a small 1:1700 version of the U.S.S. Defiant NX-74205 from "Deep Space Nine" TV series and the movie "First Contact". There are bigger papermodels of this starship on the internet, but I want to make as much ships an possible on 1:1700. Martin Saenger's Stargazer, the Trek models by Diego Cortes as well as the Cardassian Galor/Keldon and the Klingon Vor'cha by Marko Haertel are already designed in this scale so I decided to take it as my standard. Because of that, I didn't choose the hand-drawn design by Ninjatoes or the computer-drawn variant by Steve Perry but the one from Japanese designer Zousho which is on a scale of approximately 1:1900. It can be found here. The Defiant's original length from the Deep Space Nine Technical Manual is 170 m, but Bernd Schneider explains in an article on his excellent website why 120 m is more likely. That's why I've assumed this length for the spaceship. This was resulting an overall model length of 7,1 cm at 1:1700. I've already posted a build report of this into the German kartonbau forum and here is the English version of it. There are no instructions for Zousho's models, so I think this could be helpful. I've also finshed his Sabre/Saber Class and intend to try his awesome Enterprise-E next week. I will post the finished build report of the Sabre/Saber soon.
