Loving it. Im putting my vote behind the current escape pod set up. You just attach the panels with exploding bolts. It is an already proven design and besides it looks better.

I love how the bridge looks to be nested teardrops.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Just curious, Vektor, and please forgive my ignorance...how do these models handle when used in animation? I assume you could manipulate these to create some pretty stunning footage, unless they're too massive. I find that hard to believe...but I have no real experience when it comes to modeling or 3D animation (beyond After Effects work like rotoscoping and digital extrapolation...most of which is concerned with 2D and limited 3D). Wondering if--given the fantastic detail and ultra-realistic textures of your designs--they could be used to create short sequences of film composited on starfield backgrounds or other stellar environments. I love seeing 'em in snapshots from different angles. I suppose I was just curious about whether or not it would be possible to see them in action, or what it would take to make the transition.

I do happen to know quite a bit about cinematography, editing, and filmmaking in general. I guess that's why this question intrigues me.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

By special request, here's a brief glimpse at the Commander's personal runabout:







It comes fully equipped with a 6.2L V-8 M/AM injection warp core, high-performance inertial dampers, and a genuine Arcturian leather interior. Phasers and fore and aft micro-torpedo launchers optional.

And you all thought that hangar was for some auxiliary craft named the Blackfoot. Pffft...

Full disclosure: I didn't build the Camaro model, I found it online. There was no attribution to its maker, though I suspect it may have begun life as a real-time model in some auto racing game or other. Textures and graphics were added by myself and the Commander.

And does it transform into a badass but still kid-friendly robot?

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Now, I take it that the Camaro and the Grandeur are both in precisely the same scale?

Ye gods, the Grandeur is monstrously huge if those are to scale!

I think the Grandeur needs matching blue flames on the hull.

Total overal length is 1,888 feet or a little over a third of a mile (575.6 meters or over half a kilometer for you metric folks). The Sovereign class, for comparison, is 2,246 feet (685 meters), so the Grandeur is not outrageously huge.

I skimmed (mostly the pictures) this thread from start to finish and all I can stammer out is:

I like how the main impulse exhaust mimics the nose of the Camaro!
