Nydenion Battleship Repulse by Jacklionheart Nydenion Battleship Repulse by Jacklionheart
Another Nydenion vessel in our new series of wallpapers. More to come in the next weeks.

The Repulse is a capital battleship of Sykon navy. I started building the miniature almost 20 years ago and we finished it with a crew of 5 modelbuilders in 2004. The model is almost 4 feet long and is build from styrene and detailed with thousands of model-kit parts.

By the way, regarding an old modelbuilders tradition, I have added some jokes onto the miniature...look close there is an anchor somewhere at the bow ;-)

The Repulse can be seen in the Nydenion trailer [link] and of cause in the movie which will come out soon.

Composed in Photoshop CS.

Thank you for watching.
Jack

Love it - This could well be the successor to the Lewis & Clark! ;)

Thank you! We had the "Medical Frigatte" meets "Sulaco" in mind when we build it ;-) But the Lewis and Clark is a fine ship!

Does the Nydenion navy include any humans or are they all little green men?

The Nydenion navy include mostly humans, a lot of cyborgs and androids as well as some alien lifeforms.

I always wondered what happened to Nydenion! It's been years since I first saw Nyd. conceptart on Scifimeshes. Then all of a sudden the whole project seemed to have dissappeared from the web.

Nice detail and design on the ships. One really gets a true sense of size and scale, not to mention raw power these battleships must possess.

Why don't you post the model at www.starshipmodeler.com? I'm sure many Sci-fi modelers would really like to see your creation.

I remember seeing Nydenion artwork over at scifmeshes years ago. I was and am still fascinated about the project. I hope you guys will succeed. One thing's for sure: it doesn't lack good designwork.

Thank you so much! Yeah it's quite a long long time since we started. Of cause I had a lot of inspiration for the design but it was important for me that at least it has some kind of unique style.

That is a sweet model! It reminds me of Star Trek the Next Generation, because of how at first all of their ships were models and such. Nice job!
