U.S.S. Nakamura (Ambassador class)

Hi everybody!

I've been browsing around here for a while, but finally signed up and figured now was as good a time as any to start posting some of my artwork. I've been working on this Ambassador class ship for a bit over a year now, and though the exterior modeling is about done, I was planning to go back and texture the interior rooms. I'll post some renders of that version when it's done.

Beautiful work. I always liked the Ambassador-class better than the Galaxy-class.

Excellent work.

Also totally agree about the Ambassador being better than the Galaxy, a far better looking ship

Welcome abord Ryo!

She looks a beauty, you know. As I said you over SFM, I just feel the missing of the "lamps" inside the bussards.

Oh, and you have a pm there.

Lovely!
I'd love to see the interior of all those rooms with windows in the ceilings.

Ya- I really like this... All but the impulse engine... Looks cartoony against the rest of the ship.

Re: U.S.S. Nakamura (Ambassador class)

Yeah, my ONLY complaints would be the empty look of the Bussard collectors and the blue impulse exhaust. Elsewise this is a great looking build! That top image of the ship from, I'm guessing, the 7:00 position looking up at it slightly; really lends the ship a sense of scale and majesty.

This is beautiful!

Very well done on the 3D mesh here! I think the Ambassador originally had a red impulse engine, though; that aside, you've done a great job! Keep it up!

Re: U.S.S. Nakamura (Ambassador class)

Great job on the renders...

One thing that they make me feel is that the Ambassador design would be better suited to angled pylons as opposed to proto-TNG ones. Something to raise the nacelles a bit higher and, at the same time, create an opposing line on the ship.
