That Bird of Prey looks outstanding for being so low poly. Well done.
Any thoughts of adding Eaves concept of a painted bird on the underside?
Funny you should mention that...



I also took a stab at the "upgraded" version, albeit haphazardly...



While im at it, I might as well turn this into a full blown gallery thread of bits and bobs im currently toying with...

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Lookin' good Dac. Love how that upgraded one looks.
When I mentioned the bird, I was meaning this one: http://johneaves.files.wordpress.com...pg?w=665&h=471
But the original one works.

Aha...I've seen it but couldnt remember it exactly. Thanks for the link! If I ever do a proper version of it, i'd probably add that. Considering this one is so low poly (and upon further research, inaccurate) I think i'll just leave it as is for the time being.

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Juuuust before I go to sleep, here's an update on the main attraction.

I've remodelled the aft end of the secondary hull (after actually buying the calendar, and seeing it in more detail) and added a few bits and pieces here and there.









Man, I love the look of this ship.

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Slight updates!

Added like, a little bit more detail to the secondary hull and bridge. Im probs gonna redo the arrowhead insignias on the sec hull too, as theyre a bit crap.

You know, if they had just started with a design like this, I think the fans would have been much more forgiving.

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

Well, after staring rather intently at the SOTL centerfold for about half hour, I decided I wasnt quite there with the secondary hull. So I started again.



That's how shes looking at the moment, I feel its a fair bit more accurate this way. Plus, the way I've built it this time round allows me to add more detail much more easily (I dunno WHAT I was thinking with that sphere/cylinder intersection combo doohicky from before).

Re: Dac's NX-01(.5)

If I asked a big favor and do one without the connecting from the saucer hull to the nacelles, would you consider it? I would really love to see what that would look like. Just end what looks like the impulse engines at the back of the saucer. Please!!!!

Seeing as you asked ever so nicely

If you can live with a slight gap in the pylons...here ya go:







My initial impression? Its odd but without the contoured catamarans it does make it look about 100 years less advanced and more vulnerable (which Is what I guess it should have been). Still though, if the neck was bulked up, and the nacelles were brought in closer to the hull, that would have been a great proto-prise.
