Just in case you don't get over to HOG Memorial GB, here's some shots of my display only entry, Starship HOG.

I started off with a couple of old model stand bases for the saucer section, a hand vac nozzle for the secondary hull and two cigar tubes for the engines. Before paint and decals it looked like this:

After paint and some Star Trek decals, the U.S.S. HOG, NCC-585 was born.

Looks great,awesome paint job. Being new on the site,I did not know HOG. I have certainly read a lot about him. A sad time for his family,my thoughts are with them....my Mum passed away a few weeks ago n I miss her loads,just as many on this site miss HOG.



Nice work Brian, and I am sure the man himself would be most flattered to have such an excellent piece of craftsmanship named after him :cheers:

Y'know, just seeing the pics of the finished model, I thought you'd built some OOB Startrek model that I was unaware of! :D  Nice job.
