U.S.S. Hecla - a TOS destroyer???

Wow, it's been so long I'd forgotten what it felt like to complete a model! This started as yet another project to get me back into 3D modelling... and it almost worked, but then it went on the back-burner for most of a year until I recently returned to it.

This is inspired by Wingsley's answer to the FJ scout/destroyer, his Hermes/Herman (see thread). My main idea was to add some TOS-style curves to the design (because I like them ) and due to that and some bad planning (fixed for the most part "on the fly") it's evolved into it's own beast.

Because of that I'm not at all sure what to class her as. Perhaps she's a bit too chunky for a scout, so maybe a destroyer... what do you think?

And the next task is to light and render some proper scenes, which isn't something I've done a lot of in Blender.

That's the way it crumbles... cookie-wise.
