Hello everybody;

I started building an old AMT Klingon cruiser from STTMP and I'm also planning on adding lights to it. While looking for references I came across a couple of DVD caps from this website.

To me it looks like the front part of one of the cruiser's warp nacelle, but I'm not sure if it is the inside or outside of it, or maybe neither. I compare it with pictures from Clouster website and tried to compare both with no luck.

Can anybody id the part for me?:confused:

Thanks.:wave:

I've wondered that myself before. I think it's supposed to be the inboard portion of the starboard nacelle, tho. That's my opinion going by the lighting on the outboard areas of the K'T'Inga nacelles and not knowledgable fact.

Griff you mean the inside of the nacelle right. Yeah that seems right. The only thing is I cant see the lighting from that other ship so its hard to tell.

I read in the issue of Cinefex, that covered the filming of the Klingon ship. Their is only one model used, and no large section for closeups. So I really don't know if it is on the inside or out, of the nacelle on the model.

That's the outside edge of the nacelle.
I have to disagree w/you here, REL. If it were the outside of a nacelle, then it would be a port nacelle. If it were the port nacelle we'd see part of the boom in those images because of the angle of the "shot".

I'm thinking the inside of the starboard nacelle. As for the boom neck closeup on that other pic, that's not what it is. It's the portside plate on the superstructure located center-rear on the top of the main hull (with the glowy red veins in the front), which I suspect is housing the shuttlebay.

You're right about that. But it's definitely the nose of the nacelle, I wondered what that area was too when I first saw the movie.
