Wow, those are some sophisticated looking missile launchers. I wonder if Masao ever imagined that they could look like that?
Nope! A just drew some rectangular doors with no idea what's behind them.

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

Took me awhile to figure out something that might work.

Phallicism is apparently in the eye of the beholder. You see what you want to see...

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

I guess that's true. Me: I'm looking more at the weapons at this point, since I have an interest in a vessel's, err, tactical ability.

Besides, when I look at the Kretchet, to me, she looks like a dumbbell with uneven, rounded weights and a pair of nacelles than what has been suggested. Then again, the Little Nell has always reminded me more of a mushroom than anything else...

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

UPDATE...
Lower missile bay doors are in place and textures need to be replaced. I need to adjust a few other textures and this ship will be done.

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

Now that the heat has let up a bit I’ve finally been able to do some renders to make an ortho for the UES Krechet.

And something I did just for fun.

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

UPDATE...
Started to get more done on the Torsk. The Build for the secondary hull is finished so I’ve moved on to roughing the textures.

I think I’ll do a Romulan ship next.

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

UPDATE...
On Halloween I got hit by a big migraine and had to rest for a few days. Those things can take the piss out me. I'm tryign to get back to work so I went back to something small. The modelling of the primary hull is almost done. Just need to do the missile launchers and some grid lines. I also resized the impulse engines because I thought my first ones were too small.

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

Thank you.
UPDATE...
Started to do a few of the textures on the primary hull.

I added another airlock to the top of the hull because I forgot to add it before. I also have added the missile launchers. One thing I did forget is another set of grid lines. I'll try to fix that if I can. Also more textures for the nose of the ship and blue glowy bits like I have on Little Nell & Little Nell 2.

Here I've opened the missile bay doors. I'm not currently very happy with them.

I've started to rough in the shapes for the next ship I'll work on after the Torsk. The Romulan Cabbage.

Here's what the front looks like.

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

Some really good designs here. They keep more in line with Spock's description of the Earth/Romulan war of using primitive space vessels with primitive weaponry (despite the fact that the Romulans had been in space for quite a while by this time).

A possible explanation as to why these existed alonside the NX class ships would be that these were hastily cobbled together to bolster Starfleet's numbers against the numerically superior Romulans, or these were orginally freighters or transport ships that were retrofitted with guns. These could be mass produced and sent to the front lines with the NX's kept in reserve in case the war dragged on, and because they were reluctant to risk these expensive capital ships against cheaper weaponry, such as remote hijacking or mines.

The designs predate Enterprise. They were created by Maseo Okazaki and can be found on his website here:

Yup, I called dibs on the Earth-Romulan War long before Enterprise.

Re: Ships Of The Starfleet Museum

And your work was superior. I won't claim it was TV ready, but Enterprise could have done far worse than looking to the museum as a start point.

In fact, they did.
