Awesome...!

What is the origin of the meta and ultra probe ships? Are they scratch-builds you did yourself? Commissioned builds...?

The small Meta Probe Ship is based on the SAW kit - using a different/more accurate CM.
The large Meta Probe ship is scratch build. Both Meta probeshave been build at the same time and are identical (decals and so).

The cockpit in the large Meta Probe is with light and two pilots.

The Ultra Probe is sratch build as well.

Absolutely superb model work

For a second I thought they were CGI, the finish is so good!

Very impressed (and jealous)!

I love the way these images evoke a 'family line' of Alpha-based technology, in the tradition of, dare I say it, Ships of the Line of the ST universe

Absolutely fantastic work. That large Meta Probe has to be a first in that scale.

Oliver you are truly a Master Modeler. These EAGLEs, META PROBEs and ULTRA PROBE are perfect.

Default Wow!!!

As others have commented Awsome Work!

I've wanted to build 1 of the 3 main probes (Ultraprobe, Metaprobe, or Altares -what I call the Martin Bower mega-rockets) at some point.

I have to ask, what plans/references did you use to build the larger probe ships? How did you know what size tubing to use? How long to cut it, etc?

Again beautiful models.

Magnificent Oliver

Were do you keep the 1/48 scale Meta Probe? It's quite the machine and would dominate any room! It must be the only Meta Probe in existence at this scale.

Very fine and impressive detailing on the 23" side boosters too.

Nice kit-bashing on the Ultra Probe. The integrated classic Airfix/ MPC/ AMT nose looks just right. The service markings on this model as well as the rest of the fleet fit very well.

Thanks for posting these Oliver.

Very nice indeed

I drew up a rough plan of the MP in 1/48 recently with thoughts of using the RU beak,but Its a lot bigger than you think,especially allowing for the width across the solar Panels.

Steve, a 1/48th MP would be about 5 feet long, or so, right?
