RG Class Reflex Gun Ship

I will admit, that as a kitbasher, you will sometimes see a picture and think, "I just gotta build that!".  This class of ship was just that sort of thing.

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.

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.

So for now, "Live long and prosper!!!"
