New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

Hey guys,

It's been a while since I started a brand new model. I knew I wanted to build the Vengeance, ever since we got that first glimpse of it in the early movie trailers. It turned out to look quite different than I thought it would, but that's good.

Some of these shapes going on here are a lot more complicated than they look! The shape of the secondary hull has taken me the longest... I've got about 12 hours into it, so far.

I also finally upgraded from Blender 2.4, too. I'm using the 2.66 64-bit version now, trying to learn where the moved everything to, as I build it. It hasn't slowed me down too much.



So, what do y'all think? If anyone has been sketching this thing, or has an idea of what the top of it looks like, let me know.

My goal is to have this thing finished by the time I get to see the movie, on the 17th.

-Ricky

Looks good!
When you're done, can I borrow a profile view to horrify technical fans with an updated version of THIS size-comparison chart?

Re: New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

Thanks guys.

KingDaniel, sure, I can do that.

Yep, it's ugly, but in a cool way, like the F117-A. An Enterprise-A version would be fun.

Re: New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

I guess I am one of the few who think this ship is great. You did a lot of work very quickly.

Something for that empty interior. Was it Drex--no, I think it was Eaves who had a design for a saucer drop ship

More of his work

Doesn't look ugly at all. Sorta like the batmobile meets star trek.

So far, I somehow like your version of it better than the one in the movie...

Re: New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

Thanks, guys.

Tonight's update... still figuring out how all of those shapes in the neck fit together. I have no idea how the guys came up with this.



More later.

Off Topic, I received a really cool poster from Paramount today, as part of the viral site. Did anyone else get one?

This is nice work, considering how few images there are of Vengeance right now.

I like all your orthographic ship specs, but have you considered doing deck plans or cutaways for any of the alternate timeline ships, Even if it is all conjecture?

Re: New Build, USS Vengeance from Star Trek XII

Thanks.

Yep, I've thought about it, but free time is an issue. Speaking of which, I hoped to get more done tonight, but one, if not both of my video cards bit the dust yesterday. New ones are on the way, though.
