Cripps over Ardana by thefirstfleet Cripps over Ardana by thefirstfleet
Presenting my new Ambassador class model, the USS Sir Stafford Cripps. It took about two weeks to build her and was an interesting build.

I named her after the only British politician I hold for something (sorry, Ladies and Gentlemen, British politicians are just not my style...). In the Polarisverse, Cripps laid the foundation for the whole future: in contrast to our world, the colaition government did sack that bumbling fool Winston C and made Cripps the new PM. Cripps transformed post-War Britain into the example all the world followed later on. His ideology, a mixture of Leninian Socialism (as opposed to his contemporary Stalinism) and religious morality became the leading world ideology about fifty years after his death. His Crippsian Progressivism allowed the formation of the United Earth and influenced the fledging Federation. No wonder they named a ship after him...

I hope you like this little lady, folks. I will release her with some others in the near future.






Model by me
Background by NASA

The Ambassador Class should get far more love than it does. The Excalibur is an ugly lump,and the Galaxy top heavy, but the Ambassador nailed it perfectly. Best Federation ship in 'Trek for me.. apart from the Connie.

She looks good. Forget what I said that you wouldn't like TNG Fed designs. Awesome detailing, as always.

Thank you very much :D

She is actually a mixture of the two Ambassador vaitants, given that I have mixed source material. It's closer to the Enterprise-C variant, though...
