Fozz: Loving the Pierce, except for the areas around the rollbar connection points. This much solid black somehow looks wrong on a Federation Starfleet starship. But then again, this is about a civil war, so this class might have been commissioned after its start by one of the factions? Or have you even begun fleshing out the overall civil war backstory and how these different ship classes fit in, yet?

Plus, any updates on the Claymore would be greatly appreciated.
The only actual solid black parts are two small rectagles. It's actually a dark blue broken up will a honeycomb of dark grey and meduim grey. It's meant to be a very heavy armor. I have yet to give the story too much thought yet I'd like to get some more ships done or atleast close to done.

Thanks. I went with that registry only because that is Jack Pierce's birthday /5/5/1889.
I wasn't going to post my UEG work here since it appears to be primarily a Star Trek forum.
True, but so is Subspace Comms. Besides, OT threads aren't that uncommon here.

Just thought that members here might want to see and comment on them.

So, is the Pierce a one-off, or is she a member of a class, the name of which you just haven't thought of yet?
Well them maybe I will post my UEG stuff here. The Pierce is the class of this ship. I will also use the names Smith for Dick Smith. Winston for Stan Winston. Baker for Rick Baker and Savini for Tom Savini. All make up artists.

I don't personally mind the amount of black, but the way it is now makes the connection between the hull and the rollbar look a bit abrupt, IMO.
Well I'm happy with it since it turned out better than I thought it would so I won't be making any changes to it.

UPDATE...
Iíve placed a secondary deflector in the nose of the ship. Also an RCS thruster.

Add some small detail to the hull. I also moved the back RCS thruster to the side and moved the phaser strip over o the left a little bit. this is much better than how I first did it.
