Nice! That thing looks like it could hold 3 times the crew of the Enterprise.

Just found another conversion of this on Deviantart:

http://karanua.deviantart.com/art/De...etup-162482413

This one looks particularly nice, IMO - the hull seems 'greyer' here, giving it a more TOS-y look, as opposed to the whiter TMP-style colours of Dave Metlesits' version. It's really cool that it works in both ways, considering how it's got that blend of both visual styles.

As for animation - wow. Seriously, just... wow. That might be too awesome for my poor, frail, mortal form to handle...


...not that it's going to stop me taking a look, mind!
I think it's the lighting causing the difference. Karanua and Dave Metlesits both are good internet friends of mine... I usually make sure they get my models right after I finish them up, for conversion.

Alright, guys.... here's a sample animation. I'll have to do something else with the nacelle domes, though... they look a little off.

Wow...I'm sitting here with this goofy smile on my face...those are great!
I hadn't seen that spherical-hulled 4 nacelle ship in the big multi flyby...
That was cool...
Thanks. Hopefully I will have it all finished before too long.

That big fat ship was the Archon...










I was in a weird mood, that day I built that one.
Yeah...I have those quite often...completely understand.
Must say that whole deflector area is extremely nice...I like this ship.

Hmmmmm, that big fat ship, the Archon... she is intriguing. She calls to me and I feel a stirring in my loins!

I would like to see some more development in the stacked nacelles. But, it's hard to describe what I'm thinking in words, so I'll SHOW you what I'm thinking with interpretive dance:

(Or, you could just post some nice dead-on side and rear views of those nacelles, and I'll print 'em out and sketch on them...)

It's ok... I tried about 8 different ways to hook the nacelles together, but nothing looked as good as what I ended up with. I wanted to stay true to the "kitbash" thing I was trying to do.

Oh, the layout of the hookup is fine, I LIKE it!

I'm thinking that some slight additions of specific detail will add the sizzle and sell the concept!
