S.S. Rocinante From the Vanguard Novels 1/144 Scale Part 1

I love the Vangaurd Novels and Love Cervantes Quinn's character.
I've had an itch lately to make the S.S. Rocinante in 144 scale and think I've cracked the code.

The Rocinante is described as:
-Having a wedge shaped main hull
-Area for cargo storage
-Room to accommodate 4 humans comfortably
-A cockpit on the dorsal side of the hull
-TOS style Nacelles that are about 2/3rds the length of the ship
-No weapons or transporter
-3 Underside Landing feet
-Underside gangway
-Badly repaired battle damage
-Molted Grey color scheme

Here's a Photoshop comp of what I would like it to look like in the end.

The base model will be a modified 1/120 Scale Sith Infiltrator with 1/650 scale TOS nacelles added 
The extra Cargo Pods and cockpit will be sheet styrene. I plan to build the cockpit interior as well.

I will be purchasing nacelle modification bits from JT Graphics to make the nacelles look unique.

I'm in the process of buying all the separate pieces now. Hopefully I can start chopping plastic soon :)
