    Name: Romulan Bird of Prey
    Vessel-Type: Attack ship
    Brief Backstory: In the original draft of Wrath of Khan the Bird of prey was supposed to be of Romulan origin, and I liked the idea of bridging the TOS Romulan Bird of prey with the Klingon. I tried to keep it looking TOS era with a hint at the direction the design would go.

    Brief Backstory: The Declaration class was the Federation's ship-of-the-line in the early part of the 23rd century. Design refinements led to a class refit and the development of the Constitution class in the 2240s; both projects were the brainchild of the prolific head of Starfleet R&D, Admiral Matthew Jefferies.

    I think that's "The Search For Spock", not "Wrath of Khan". Anyways, you get my vote.

    This is correct - the Contestant asked that it be changed to The Search for Spock.

    I LIKE IT!!!

    I'd say vote for me but you dont know which is mine so...

    I will say all of the entries are great but at last count we need one more prize just so we don't have one looser. That would suck.

    Ohhhh I just had a horible idea This might suck more than being the only looser but who knows. Why dont we give the "last winner" the rest of our unused parts.

    god I should lose just for suggesting it but I hope I dont.

    The amount of creativity is simply astounding. The most awesome design is so because it is seamless and because I can't guess where some of the parts came from (the essence of good kitbashing). I can't wait to see what the NEXT contest will do...

    3 for me. Great ideas there - although all entrants show great ideas, these just did something for me from an original creative POV above all others.
    Good luck everyone!

    All of them were great. But I kept getting drawn back to #1, I absolutely love the design. If it was a kit, I'd certainly get it!

    Technically it is a kit (er two kits). You just have to get special instructions which will hopefully come in the fallowing weeks with build threads.

    What I am most astounded by is the quality of these builds given the extremely strict rules Jm419 layed out for this contest. The contestants were extremely limited on the resources they could use so to see such cool pieces come from that makes it twice as awesome!

    This is definitely one of the tougher contests to judge that I've seen here, partly since everyone had to use the same parts. I keep changing my mind on which entry I like best; in my opinion you could make a claim for each of them to win top honor! Hope the voting stays up for enough time to make my decision!

    I think they all have very creative designs and are cool reorganizations of available model parts.

    IMO, #5 is the only one that looks like a spaceship and not a model, so that's what I voted for. Perhaps that means I voted for a paintjob instead of a kitbash approach, so if I strayed from the contest's intent, I apologize...

    (...but it's probably my favorite design, too, so we're good. )

    But they're all way cool.

    SOme great designs, but I found myself thinking that #5 looked the most like a real ship from the Starfleet I know and love.

    I believe we still have another week and some of us are vying for a better position in the ranks. Besides you never know in the next week their could be a dramatic turn of events. I know not likely but... "In every pot hole their is Hope", Mixed Nuts

    It was prety close for me between #4 and #5.

    I had to go with #4 though as I'm in love building a RBOP myself so I'm a little biased right now.
