I made some Star ship miniatures for the tactical spaceship combat of a Star Trek RPG I'm playing. Most of them are just top-views and bottom views of ships (some direct from the blogs of the designer, like Doug Drexler) aligned so that I can cut and lighly bend them to give a 2.5D feel to them.
I'will put the print version of them in the next few posts.

I've gone through a few iterations of 2d/2.5d ships, but for the moment I'm just doing this to the flat ones to fold/glue and slide into the slotted bases I have available. You end up with the a white tab coming down at a 90 degree angle from the bottom of the ship.

I had made a space combat game and tested it with some friends. A big chunk of it was designing your own ships, so I made a bunch up to have ready each time we played. These are some of the 3d'ish ones I have leftover. I had to improvise some bases for the moment =)
I was never quite happy with the way they were turning out, but it was an improvement over the tokens we were using before.

Some of them yes. Because of the weird shapes and the 2.5D, some of the parts were getting pretty thick after it was folded and glued, so I tried cutting them beforehand and struggling with lining everything up. I feel like I got pretty close to what I wanted, but something still isn't quite right.
Jem Hadar Battleship (it's big, I couldn't fit it properly in a 15cmx10cm photo with a folding line)
Various alien ships
Klingon Vor'cha, with some light scouts
Vulcan ships First cut out the strips to make the circular warp halos, only then fold and glue the parts of the ships at the line. Fold the halo strips in half and make little circles with them. Edge the Suurok Class halo (the upper one) light blue.

Great! Looks like a variant of the K7-Station from "Trouble with Tribbles"...
I need to build this station too, but for the X-Wing miniatures game. Have to figure out what the size will have to be in the dynamic scale of the capital ships, so I can re-scale the model accordingly...
Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
