With the release of Zousho's Akira I've finally built some Star Trek models I've been wanting for awhile. First of course was the Akira, then cam Zousho's Saber and Defiant classes. I also built a scaled-down Norway class (I tried to get it on scale with the Akira, at 1/1900). With four of the Federation's anti-Borg warships built, I decided I'd finish the fleet off with the other two, the Sovereign class and the much more obscure Steamrunner class. The Steamrunner, like the Norway, Akira, and Saber classes originally appeared during the fight with the Borg in First Contact. It also saw limited use in Deep Space Nine, though never as a very prominent ship, and sometimes as wreckage. I became most familiar with it through the games Armada and Dominion Wars, where it was a somewhat more prominent ship. There is a Steamrunner kit already available at Steamrunner Class Starship pictures from crafts photos on webshots but as you might see, it comes with no instructions. I've decided to help out by building this ship and documenting my progress for anyone else looking to build one for themself. First, I decided to clean up the parts. It appears to me that the parts were scanned from something, so the first step was to remove the odd orange outlines and the discoloration of the paper, replacing them with white, so I didn't end up printing all that color. I also found that page five of the model is not actually the same scale as the other four, which would have caused quite a few problems if I had tried to construct it without rescaling them. After that, I shuffled all the pieces around and managed to squeeze them down from five pages to three, to help me save materials. I really want to touch up the entire model, because the texture resolution is pretty bad, but I decided to build it first, to get a better grasp of the model. For my purposes, I also scaled down the model to 80%, in hopes it might be similarly scaled to the Akira and other ships now. Anyway, I'll start posting pictures soon.
