Re: WIP USS Mitchell

Thanks everyone for the compliments. I must say I had some good advices in another forum, but I also decided to: not be afraid to take my time, and redo what I don't like.
So, it's not false to say I have redone at least most parts 2-3 times...but now I get what I want more the first time, so...it's a process. LOL!

Done my own nurnies below the nose. Also added the pitch stabilizer (Black round thing, like the Defiant model in terms of shape and size). Took my an eternity fixing symmetry problems...I don't know if the model have moved but it was so long to fix. I also tried pre-made nurnies, but importing shapes was messy for some reason. I found a way for making tubes with the bend deformer...it's the one I understand better.

Re: WIP USS Mitchell

I would say it's more like a reinforcement plating. Originally it was the place where there was an observatory and a bar. They could still be there that way too. This actually what it look like in the actual model.

The problem is that's a curve shape. It's not impossible to do windows but there will be a lot of texture breaking. Booleans windows works best in flat shapes. I did try directly on the model, and it was an ugly business...I prefer leaving it plain.

On the fender I could change some black area, to be black translucent windows. I could also try to shape them...Even then I see texture breaking on that shape right now. So I will try on the fender if it works better. (I say fender for a lack of a better word)

I understand, either way I really like the 'fenders' and I would like to see you keep them.

Re: WIP USS Mitchell

Kept the fenders...Was able to do the escape pods, and place some of them. Now, I am working more around the wing/engine side.

Re: WIP USS Mitchell

I also really like the lines of this ship: Defiant, Miranda and Jem'Hadar put together, as others have mentioned. I can see the back story being that the designers were able to incorporate technology from captured Dominion vessels.

I like was JES said about the naming and numbering. I got into a discussion about reusing names in another thread, so I agree that you should avoid the earlier name unless it was an especially significant ship.

I like the roll bar, it really gives a nice line to the ship. That darker squarish detail in you latest picture looks a little Star Destroyer, though. Does it have a particular function you are representing?

Re: WIP USS Mitchell

PhoenixClass, thanks. About the darker squarish...I assume you mean the grebble stuff. It is just to add details. I know that usually ST ships are more slick and doesn't have many grebble or nurnies objects, but I wanted to add some to an extend.

Work on panels on the wings. Modified the under shape of the engines so that it reminds a bit of the fender on the front.

Re: WIP USS Mitchell

Love those profile shots.

Seen from a wider view, the grebbling is more subtle and is a nice contrast. I will no longer mistake the Mitchell for a Star Destroyer!
