Re: Planet of the Titans U.S.S. Enterprise

Thanks again for the comments.

Potemkin_Prod - End caps will probably remain as is but I'm curious about the retractable bulbs, which ship had those? Is that something from the new movie? My eyes may have been overcome by the lens flares lol

Psion - Yes, the signage on the nacelles is lit by the rows of lights at the top and bottom. The big windows under the hangar bay are the botanical gardens, no sense dragging trees and such all through the ship when you can just drop it down a hole in the ceiling. Now that just made think of adding in a shuttle with a tree strapped to the roof landing in the bay... hmmm... Between the main hangar and the smaller bay #1 is a shuttle repair bay. I might open up that smaller bay later on so you can see inside.

Wingsley - I actually tried out that font on this ship but it just didn't look right. I think if I were doing a more rigid version closer to RM's original concept with a lot of straight lines it might work. I think my version is just too curvy so TMP font seemed to work better. I really like deg3d's version of the TOS Enterprise but I really try, not always successfully, but I do try very hard not to borrow from someone else's models. It's not that I think that I can do a better job of it (certainly not in the case of deg3d) but just because I want to try and make something unique.

Patrickivan - Impulse engines are being reworked and they will be bigger, but the warp engines are pretty much done, for this version anyway

Well back to work, more pics soon!
