Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

Looks like it would come from the same era--but it also has the curves of the Galaxy class. To me-this is what the Vorcha should have looked like. It has that softer, sleeker TNG look--yet is still quite agressive as befits a klingon vessel.

This is one of those cases that absolutely I find it very hard not to agree. Even more importantly, I think this is closer how future Klingon vessels should look (i.e, Star Trek Online).

The strange thing is how CG that looks. Fantastic design, incredible execution.
Funny, I don't think the recent photos look CG at all.

I made the same observation as Venardhi a year ago. I think the trigger is REL's work looks mathematically perfect. His finished surfaces are smooth and his details line up so well that the effect is similar to work done in an environment where such precision comes easily: CG modelling.

REL's a skilled craftsman who pays meticulous attention to perfecting his details. He's the deg3D or Vektor of real-world model building.

I wish this could make it into STO instead of some of those crazy Klingon ships Cryptic has designed.

Me neither. It's better than CG - it's real! Very rare in this day and age - particularly with regard to the skill level required to scratch-build such a design. Probably one of the best Klingon designs ever made since the K'Tinga upgrade herself, and far better than the Bird of Prey and Vorcha. I really don't want you to think I'm blowing sunshine up your ass, Rel, but this thing is sublime!

Re: Re-Imagined K'tinga/D7

Thank you very much for all the wonderful words, I really do appreciate it.

I think this is my favorite angle, I only wish I was good enough at Photoshop to remove the stand. I was thinking of making a top mount for it for photography's sake but I never did.

Great ship and excellent work building her.
At some point, you mentioned about doing blueprints when finished the construction. Are they available?

Interesting CG render, but the starboard nacelle is a little blurry and what's up with the weird space ship docked on the bottom? It looks like you took your inspiration from a modelling stand. Clean that up and sold! Too bad we'll never see a physical model of this one.

I'm not sure who's pulling who's leg here.

And REL, if you don't want the support rod visible in the picture, just delete it from the mesh and re-render!
