First here, too. The orange outline says "safety marking" better than having the colors the other way 'round.

I agree with this. Have you tried it with the classic black and yellow bumble-bee type safety markings?

Top one for me.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

I'm not going to do black/yellow stripes. That's a very conventional caution symbology that doesn't exist anywhere else in the Trek universe that I know of, at least not on the exterior of starships.

I am leaning toward the first version with the orange outline. It's similar enough to fit with what has come before but different enough to be unique. I'm working on the rest of the thrusters modules now, but they are a real pain to model, unfortunately. I'm getting faster as I go, but each one is slightly different depending on hull contours. Should have more updates within a couple of days.

I'd go with the first version too. The second doesn't look quite right for some reason.

I guess I'm an oddball--I like the second one. Looks like a mini-impulse exhaust.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

I think can see why many here like the first one, but I like the second one too because it does reflect more towards what has come before.

I see the yellow as being where the vents for the thrusters are cut into.

Yeah, but not BLACK/YELLOW caution symbols, but red warning strips. Emphasis on black and yellow, which isn't used, at least not that I know of in canon.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

Sorry for the lack of progress, gang. Life seems determined to give me a truckload of lemons lately and I am just plain tired of trying to make lemon juice. Not trying to whine or complain or fish for sympathy, just offering an explanation. Basically, I haven't been able to get anywhere near the Grandeur in the last couple of weeks as I am just trying to hold things together at the moment. Hopefully the difficulties will pass or at least lessen in the near future and I can get back on track.

When life gives you lemons? Pour a heffewiezen and garnish it with said lemons. Drain, repeat as necessary.

Take care of yourself first. You're bo good to the rest of us dead or destitute.

Nothing saps a man's creativity more than hard luck. Here's hoping your lemon stockpile becomes someone else's problem pronto, Vektor!
