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.

Maybe, maybe not. But I've never really seen the pylons as proto-TNG, more post-Excelsior.

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!
The Enterprise-C, the first appearance of the Ambassador class ship, consistently had a blue impulse engine.

This is a beautiful model! I guess she was named after an ancestor of the Admiral Nakamura we saw. He'd have been a baby when this one was commissioned...

^ Yah. And looked as about as weird as those white-lit ones on the Ent-A in TFF.

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

That is some excellent modeling work. If you have a gallery where we can see any other work you have done, I'd suggest you post the link.

My only gripe is the apparent lack of aft launchers. OTH, I do like how you added aft phasers like those depicted in Gustavo's Enterprise-C schematics.

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.
The images are definitely some of the best I've seen on the internet.

I was just wondering if I may be able to use some of them for my Star Trek simm which will feature an Ambassador Class ship? I would really appreciate it. Would add you to the credits page of my site as well.

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

Hi guys, sorry for the super-late reply. I appreciate all your comments though

jimster77 - Haha! That's awesome.

JES - I have mostly 2D work on cghub (http://ryo-80.cghub.com/) but I'll be throwing most of the more recent, Trek-related stuff up as soon as I can. Been thinking about a place where I can put all of it up.

Tellarites4Ever - Let me know and I'll see what I can do

Mark_Nguyen - Hah! I'd actually forgotten about the Admiral back when I started this is 2011. But yeah, based on the contract code number, he'd be really little when this thing was built. I dunno, the Nakamura website has a much better explanation than I would've come up with haha

FatherRob - Yeah, I really do like the original design Mr. Probert worked on, with the diagonal, forward-swept config on the pylons, personally. Too bad "Yesterday's Enterprise" was under such time/resource constraints...

Taking some advice from some folks here and over on scifi-meshes, I changed a few things with the ship. But I had to work from an older version of the ship, due to a HD failure, so the lit rooms in the saucer section aren't in-place yet.

Sorry for the huge images!

I am even more sold on the Ambassador class now than I was before. Great job!

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

A nice take on Enterprise C was the Council class...seen here (scroll down)
http://www.treknology.org/history3.htm

Now there were two version as per Ex Astris. One had a wider shuttlebay, another had a more narrow version. http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/ar...ambassador.htm

Did you split the difference?

Something you might do for the next project. I really like the concept of the overlay, as here:
http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/ar...perimposed.jpg
http://www.ex-astris-scientia.org/ar...se-overlay.jpg

What might be nice is to trace the outermost line of each combination to reach the ultimate incarnation...

It was a bit unintentional, but I think I did split the difference. In putting the stardrive together, I didn't see that the hangar end of it was wider, like the Yamaguchi version until I'd already frozen it and started detailing. Though the references for the Enterprise C are scant at best, I tried to take what I could from the later iterations of her and match them up as well as possible.

And hmm... I haven't thought of an overlay before in my rendering. I'll play around with it. Which schematics were you looking to have it measured against?
