Re: New ideas... trying to decide.

First, I'm lovin' this idea, and I really, REALLY like the direction you're going with the necelles, especially the aft 2/3 - 3/4 of it. But ..., um ..., how to put this delicately ...? It may be just me, but the front 1/4 of the nacelle looks a little too much like ... um ... anuncircumcisedpenis.

Okay, there, I said it.

Take it for what it's worth.

I think a Mad version of this would be sweet.

hmm, if that's the impression you are getting, that's not good. I'm still not sure how exactly I'm going to leave that area yet. Updates later on today.

Re: New ideas... trying to decide.

Ok, been tweaking and thinking again...







I'm trying to merge some lines of both types of nacelles, here... the back of the "cowling" has a similar profile to the back end of the original nacelle, while it tapers down like the refit version. I split that part into two parts, so that there isn't as much blank space there, and tweaked the details around the dome. It was somewhat inspired by Gabe Koerner's design, if no one can tell.

Re: New ideas... trying to decide.



I like that nacelle treatment much better (not that my opinion alone should necessarily count for much.) I really like the nacelle caps being closer to the diameter of the nacelle body, as on the original. Probably because I'm so familiar with the original, those relative proportions just "look right".

I can definitely see the Koerner influence, and I think it works here, though may hear from those who think that if this is intended to be a "prime universe" ship it should eschew "nuTrek" referents. Not saying I agree or disagree with that proposition; just that I've seen it raised enough times around here to anticipate it.

In any event, I like where you''re headed already, and am looking forward to seeing what you do with this, as I always look forward to your creations.

Re: New ideas... trying to decide.

It's funny you should mention the size of the Nacelle caps... They didn't actually change. I think it's the overhang that does it, but it seems to tie it in better.

I think I'm almost done with these, for now, and I'll start on the saucer next.

Re: New ideas... trying to decide.

This lokks interesting:
http://subodeon.proboards.com/index....ay&thread=1962


Over at starshipmodeler.net, there is a model kit builder who was working on a ship called the Charger that had similar nacelles to yours
http://infinityreach.multiply.com/ph...USS_Enterprise
http://infinityreach.multiply.com/

Look for his "Charger." The TAS Enterprise seemed to have a longer shuttlebay. You might want to do that next, seing that the animated Enterprise seemed to have a slightly different build.

Re: New ideas... trying to decide.

While you're getting started on the saucer... may I reccomend you move the arboretum up there? It could free up some room in the engineering hull for... engineering stuff. And there's already plenty of space to spare for the crew in the saucer as is, as many posters here could likely attest.

I'd reccomend the saucer rim, the B/C deck bulge or the spot originally indicated for the rec room by The Probert (LINK).
