USS Proxima, NCC-2713 Loknar-class in 1/1000 scale
This is the old Starship Modeler Kit Factory Loknar-class conversion kit. It's designed to work with the Polar Lights / Round 2 1/1000 scale TOS Enterprise. It was originally released in about 2004, IIRC. This conversion kit is based off the Loknar-class frigate, first featured in the FASA Star Trek: The Role-Playing Game and Starship Tactical Combat Simulator games, originally published in the mid-1980's.

My kit has several deviations from the original design. The most noticeable is that I added Sentinel-type nacelles from UGH! Models. I also added an UGH! Models forward saucer mounted navigational deflector and sensor dish, a VA Miniatures lower saucer mounted photorp deck, and a resin cast detailing piece from an old ERTL X-Wing kit.

Later, I removed the standard PB-48 nacelles, and replaced them with the UGH! Models Sentinel-type nacelles, which I believe are PB-52's? Anyhow, I like the look of these nacelles much more so than the "straight" nacelles. I also added UGH! Models TOS Split impulse engines to her, tho I cut them in half and sanded to fit.

More to follow, as always.
