Cool
USS Defiant - Yet another Summer of Space Design! - With Plans!!!

I had a little time today and whipped this up.

The USS Defiant from Star Trek Deep Space Nine.

It is very cool!!!

I am going to mix all control surfaces so i will have 6 surfaces in the roll axis!!!!

I put the engine almost dead center too. This thing should be a very nice performer.

Wingspan (saucerspan) is about 23", length 31.5"

I am probably going to have to build it out of Pink Foam since i have not found any blue stuff yet. =(

Anyhow. What do you guys think?

Plans Added

Very good, but how about the X-Men's stealth sort of bomber/fighter design or Thunderbird 1 with swing wing?? Perhaps you have started a fantasy/Sci-Fi build thread? 'Show your wierdo's' ???? There are some greatr, unusual designs out there. Have you checked out the 'Rods' thread??? Whoa!!! Mulder and Scully where are you when we need you?

P S Some guy was even building the bomber bird thing from 'The Wall' movie?!!

If the motor is in the center, where will you put the battery to establish CG? Looks good. If anyone can get it to fly, it's you.

I am fairly certain that the CG is going to be ahead of the motor. From my experience with the other Round pizzabox type flyers they usually have the CG at about 1/3 from the nose.

As long as no one jumps in here an builds it before me (nstaller!!!) i will be building this one after the Imp SD. =)

Plans as soon as i make sure it flies right. The Klingon is a perfect example of one of my designs that needed a lot of changes to make fly right.

I think this one will turn out really well too.

I am kind of excited about it.

First paint and fly the Fury, then the Imp SD, then this. Somewhere in between i have a top secret design that is just for GPW though

Man...now why did you have to say that.....a "top secret" design....don't you know that if you are working on a "top secret" something or other the last thing you are supposed to do is say that....now we have to mobilize forces and search your PC....

I was wondering when you'd get to the Defiant Should roll like mad with all those surfaces working. It looks reasonably compact too so you should be able to get some speed out of it

Have you tried looking around for some green guard? It's made by Pactiv and while just slightly more heavy, It is better than the pink stuff. I had been told that they will have more stores selling it in the northland so you may just get lucky. Worth looking into.

Well i have FINALLY gotten to the build for this awesome ship!

Last night i cut all the pieces out and started applying the Gorilla Glue!

I have to say it is looking awesome. I will get some pictures up tonight. Should have a maiden this weekend. and of course their will be a full feature video!

I am quite excited about this one. I suspect it will be as good a flyer as the Enterprise-D
