Some of the unsung heros of the TNG Era, the New Orleans class frigate and the Cheyenne class light cruiser.
On-Screen these ships were only seen once in Star Trek The Next Generation as wreckages in the Wolf 359 graveyard scene in "The Best of Both Worlds".
Both physical studio models were mostly kitbashes from model parts of the Galaxy class in different scales and marker pens which were used for the four Cheyenne warp nacelles and the outboard pods of the New Orleans.
