This one was built for Mike Walker of Folsom, California
This ship marked the first time I was asked to build one of my own designs for someone else.
|Mikw told me he wanted a Quasar class ship built for him and, after a couple of false starts, I set to building him the Youngblood from an AMT Enterprise D and E.
The construction methods used were the same as what were used on the Quasar with the noted exception that, due to missing parts from the E, I had to cast the bussard collectors for the nacelles.
|The Youngblood's markings were a combination of stock decals and custome ones I printed up at my local kinko's
When Mike saw these pics, he was unsatisfied, and I wound up having to redo almost the entire paint job aling with all of the custom markings(pics to follow when I have them finally developed)
IT IS BECAUSE OF THIS PROJECT AND THE USS SAVEDRA THAT I ALSO BUILT FOR HIM THAT HAS MADE ME DECIDE TO QUIT BUILDING MODELS FOR OTHERS EXCEPT UNDER VERY SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES.
