Fresh out of Drydock: S.S. Newport a 1400 Scale Federation Freighter
This lovely little fella started out as the USS Jenolan in 2500 scale which I bought off of ebay under the assumption that it was 1400 scale as it was listed. That was a burn, but as I was determined to use the model for something, I decided to chop it, flip it and mod it to make it a 1400 scale ship instead.
I added a TOS styled front deflector dish, sculpted a proper scale bridge module, made underside cargo bays, added Bussard Collectors and beefed up the rear engine area. A clean simple paint job and a some custom decals mixed with some spare PNT Decals finished off the job.
