On Friday I started bashing a USS Ranger Model together. It was my favorite scout ship from FASA’s star ship combat game, and even though it was used as cannon fodder most of the time, there was an appealing simplicity to the ship. That being said, I am running into some difficulties. There seems to be no impulse engine mounting, or deflector dish, and the phasers are mounted on the top of the hull. I switched the phasers to a forward mounting and put a temporary dish up front. Any ideas for integrating an impulse engine into it?
