I must have acquired the first picture a long time ago because I usually tag the original creator with credit. And I scoured my normal FaceBook hangouts and could not for the life of me, find the picture again. If anyone recognizes this ship, please let me know who did it so I can give them the proper recognition that they deserve. I am thinking that it might be an earlier drawing by Zenseava.
RG Class Reflex Gun Ship
Unknown Scale Bandai Mecha Kitbash
In Universe Notes:
The Reflex Canon that was used on the Pluvian base in the Sol system was indeed a powerful weapon. It was simply poorly used by the base personnel. The weapon's designer decided to prove this point by making a mobile version. Pluvian's Revenge was built to demonstrate that the tech could indeed be used in a mobile format.
Real World Notes:
This picture got me thinking about building my own Reflex Gun ship.
This ended up just being a quick little project to see what I could do.
I started with an old school Space Battleship Yamato Exterminator Class Destroyer kit and cut off her nose and rotated it 180 degrees to give me a flat deck to work with.
The gun itself is a slightly sawed off 1:1400 NX Class nacelle from Star Trek.
The gun's power source and tail fins are made up of several 1:2500 parts from various star trek ships as well.
This was a very quick build that took me all of two days to throw together. I really did enjoy building this ship and to my knowledge, she's the only one in existence so I now have a one of a kind.
And as they say... that is really all I have to share about this model. As always, I hope you found this article useful and informative. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to comment below.
