Anyone interested in participating in a UFO/Spaceship campaign. The kits can be of any scale of a UFO or spaceship. It can not replicate an actual (as far as we know) rocket or space vehicle (e.g. space shuttle, Apollo rockets, etc). Area 51 kits will be allowed.

OK. We are 60% there. A scout ship is OK as long as it is not "real" and related to UFOs or fictional spaceships (I guess the latter fictional example iss redundant to not "real").

Just need one more to submit a proposal for the campaign. I was thinking of titling the campaign something crazy like, "UFO/Spaceship Campaign".
There is another campaign being proposed that is very open and contains all things sci-fi.

I bet if you mention this campaign idea in the End of Days campaign thread you might get some more people.

Not yet, we need one more person to express interest before I can submit a proposal for the campaign.

Adam, Good idea. I will drop by that campaign. I still have to finish my submission for that campaign.

You could count me in depending on the timeframe! I'm thinking about breaking Miliminis into the SCIFI world anyways.

So basicly anything Space will go??
If so I'll be doing a planned Star Trek TOS-era exploration ship I've had in the works for sometime. Using the trusty PL 1:1000 Enterprise and some odds-and-ends from Modular Models, I plan on doing a 4-nacelle Constellation type ship I'll be naming the USS Carl Sagan.

I put together a quick picture of the Sagan on Paint based on rough sketches I've made. Its simple and lacking a lot of detail (windows, hull numbers etc...).
Not 100% happy with it yet. I think the engineering hull needs a little work still. I want it to have some length and depth to realistically include the warp core, cargo and shuttle bays. It has to look like its capable of long-range missions outside of Federation space and support. It also has to be a simple TOS design with no fancy detailing we see on ships from the movie-era onwards. The saucer I do plan on deepening by a deck, maybe 2, to increase crew living space and labs.
Any thoughts and ideas are welcome.
