I never liked the stock repair ship much, and so I decided to kitbash one that looks more cannon. It also can be used for TMP mods, because it is made of Oberth parts.
That's what Pizza the Hut said in the e-mail and I'm finding it very difficult to argue with it. It mops the floor entirely with the stock repair ship which although good, this one is just far superior. It also fits in with the idea that the useful TMP era ships remained in service into the TNG era (Excelsior, albeit with refits), Miranda (same principle) and of course the Oberth from which this is based.
It is generally very good and for a kitbash very nice but my only gripe, could be yours too, is the third nacelle, or what looks like one. Regardless of this, a very nice piece of work and definitely a worthy replacement. If you don't have a good replacement already, this is definitely the one for you.
