CLASSIFICATION: Federation First Strike Warship
A direct descendent of the Norway family of fast well-armed cruisers, the Nimbus class cruisers are the muscle cars of Starfleet. With systems expectedly designed for speed, power and agility, things like recreation holodecks and large private quarters have been replaced with power transfer conduits and generators and quad quarters for the crew. The navigational systems are sleek and responsive, with the vessel maintaining an admired level of power efficiency across systems.

The arrow head command hull was bashed from the bottom of a SW Imperial Cruiser, (notice the tip of the cruiser used as the undercarriage). I sheathed it in thin styrene to give it a smooth skin, and layered it with thicker layers of "armor". The nacelle pylons are scratch-built from sheet styrene, and the nacelles are modified Ent. "C" nacelles with the plasma grill removed and the bussards replaced with the end tips of two other nacelles. The weapons pod is a standard pod from a Runabout kit, set into indentations in the "armor" layer of the hull. The base color is Navy Aggressor Grey with lighter hand mixed Aztec highlights. Decals are from the decal box...and the lettering is Chartpak Presstype.
