U.S.S. Defiant & Monitor by Bones McCoy
03-01-2016: The starship in the picture above looks like the U.S.S. Defiant, but it’s not: it’s the U.S.S. Monitor, another retexture by Bones McCoy! ;o)
It’s based on the descriptions of the U.S.S. Monitor in the novels “The Return” and “Preserver” written by William Shatner.
In those novels, the U.S.S. Monitor is a modified Defiant-class starship with a dark, microdiffracted carbon coated hull for extra stealth, sent on a mission to destroy the Borg homeworld…
I haven’t read the novels myself, but I’ve always found the Defiant a very cool looking ship, and it looks great in its Monitor colours too:
Like before, Bones allowed me to share his retextured parts for those that want to build this new version, you can get them from the U.S.S. Defiant download post again: link
And here’s another one, of the bottom this time! You can see the extra details in the textures that Bones added, but because the parts have stayed the same, you can still use Bill Perry’s redraw instructions to build it!
Thank you for retexturing and building a Ninjatoes’ papercraft model!
