I haven't seen all of the different verisons of the JJVerse Excelsior yet but yours is close to Madmans. But also close to the original. I like both so far.

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5) & more!

Dac I stumbled upon this thread from Google. I haven't posted in years... BEAUTIFUL work. It's so much fun to see top-notch artists carry our fleet forward!

Ever since I was a kid I loved seeing those big fleets moving together in special episodes. I loved the differences in the sizes of the various ships.

And it seems like a lot of artists are finally tackling and doing justice to Drexler's NX-01 refit! It looks beautiful in 3D. A true improvement on the love-it-or-hate-it Akiraprise design.

So... want to tackle the Aventine or the Typhon or the Valkyrie class fighter? I'd love to see a squadron of Valkyries flying around the fleet.

I like it. But why does the 1.5 still have that tiny deflector on the saucer when it has a new, big, circular one?
The same reason Voyager has 2 - the original is a backup in case the SHTF
If it were up to me, I'd remove that and just "solidify" the hull edge along there. But the (production crew) guys who came up with the upgraded NX-01 didn't do that, so you're obviously doing the right thing.

That said, I'm thinking of buying the model kit mod for the 1:1000 Polar Lights NX-01... and in that case, I'd alter the hull leading edge as I just described. But... I'd put three small (maybe the size of the hull height there) CIRCULAR dishes up there, just not inset in a blue-glowy-region

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5) & more!

Tai, thanks very much for the kind words. As for those other ships, I did love Star Trek: Invasion as a kid, and although I have an already full plate of stuff to do for other people and no plans to do much of anything in 3D at the moment, I will probably get around to making a Valkyrie class fighter at least. Probably not the Aventine though, as I think that ship is a bit....naff looking.

Cary
, that's all well and good, but I just wanted to make something that's close as can be to what Doug intended. I really dig the original NX-01 but the refit did improve it imo. Folks can and have argued the necessity of that rim deflector dish and every other thing to do with every other ship, but quite frankly I don't care much for that. I think it makes sense to keep the original, proven deflector in case the new literally bolted on one doesn't work.

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5) & more!

It might be nice to see that slim secondary hull underneath a flatter saucer, say the Baton Rouge or Kelvin.

NECRO RESURRECTION BUMP-A-THON!

So, yeah. It's been a while hasn't it? I've not done much modelling recently, but something compelled me to do a render today. So here she is, The U.S.S. DEFIANT!



PM me for the FullHD, unwatermarked version.
