You might want to correct those hotlinks.
You can see the pics + others at this page.
I think what the good Captain means is that unless you own the site being linked or you stage the pictures on somewhere like Photobucket, you are stealing bandwidth, which is against the board rules.
Yeah, and if he uploads them on Photobucket, he is stealing the images.

That as well.

Anyway, to me, the 4ft model does superficially have a more "realistic" appearance because of the chunkiness of the detailing, but considering that the saucer section of the Enterprise-D is meant to be nearly half a kilometre across, perhaps the fine detail on the saucer is a little too chunky. In the end, it does come down to personal aesthetics.

I think the exaggerated relief on the 4 footer will look horrible in HD. You just have to take a look at a few screen shots of the 6 footer from Generations to know that there is plenty of detail in it. http://movies.trekcore.com/gallery/a...11/gen0636.jpg

Granted the 4 footer probably looked better on a small standard definition TV that was not able to pick up the subtleties of the 6 footer.

Not according to the EAS hotlink failure image, which says to save them to your own webspace.

The texturing is utterly mind-boggling to me at any resolution. The 4 footer looks like a toy.

It's like the Enterprise went over a really bad speed-bump and jiggled all of the lifeboats loose.

The only good thing I can say about the 4-footer is that ten forward is lit up.

Yeah, not a very nice looking model at all...at least not compared to the 6 foot model.

Since they have to recomposit everything, perhaps in cases where a 6 foot version of the same angle of the ship exists, they could swap out the 4 foot for the 6 foot? There will still be scenes where the 4 footer is used, but it would be nice if they could use the 6 footer for as many close ups and beauty passes as possible.

Looking at that shot, the detailing on the 4-foot model looks exaggerated, and may get distracting in space shots.

The best part is ten-forward, and the saucer rim is the 'correct' two-deck size to accommodate it. I would heartily suggest that they create a CGI model with the lines of the 6-foot model, the 2-deck saucer rim of the 4-foot, and as much detailing as possible (so we can see into the windows as the ship passes, etc.).

Wasn't there supposed to be a ring of observation lounges around the rim of the saucer?

Why did they even bother to do this? It's the same angle, the same lighting.
