Re: U.S.S. Yorktown

Thanks guys! SolitaryJustice, yes, I'm just using the free version, though I also have quite a few plugins which help (they're free too, which is also nice! If you're interested I highly recommend fredo6's plugins).

anyway, some more shots of the model, sans backgrounds this time. I'm feeling pretty happy with this as it is, perhaps just a few textures and maybe a landing deck interior to add, if I get around to it. feel free to point out any glaring errors, though!







and because I can't leave well enough alone, I started work on another ship, this time from the generation before Yorktown, the USS Odyssey


Plan view with some other ships


basic shapes


working up the nacelles


testing some panelling ideas


trying to add some more 'realistic' panelling and rougher details, suggesting this is a bit more of a 'tin can' than the later ships

more to come!

Re: U.S.S. Yorktown

What are your plans for the deflector cover?
Take a look at the newer types of radomes. Their patterns might give you a few ideas.

Looks good! Interesting idea with the nacelle spires - I don't think I've seen anyone put them off-center before. Definitely unique!

Re: U.S.S. Yorktown

I agree--I like that look. You may consider a Diane Carey refit era Dreadnaught with a cluster of those spikes on the tail of the nacelle...

Re: U.S.S. Yorktown

got some more modelling done on Odyssey, it's coming along nicely I think.


replaced the placeholder impulse stack with a purpose built module


Changed the shape of the impulse engines some, added an observation dome to the main airlock, doors for the main hanger/payload bay and some greeblies to the aft end of the secondary hull (it was looking a bit boring as it was)


Nacelle pylons and spires, and started cutting in panel lines on the saucer.

more to come!

Re: U.S.S. Yorktown

Those RCS thrusters on the aft end bug me. Not just because they look like a near-exact copy of the ones on the Space Shuttle, but because they're pointing right at the warp nacelles.

Re: U.S.S. Yorktown

I've always thought a Discovery-esque thruster block was really appropriate for pre-TOS ships. I'm feeling that here.

Also, it's "Hangar" not "Hanger" or "Hangar Bay."
