Re: TOS "Clipper Ship"

Very cool design. You could actually do all sorts of "kitbashes" with this configuration....
3 nacelles in a Y, 2 nacelles above + regular hull below, multiple nacelles across the top, skew the ring...
In regards to the turbolift question, perhaps smaller dorsal "fins" to each 2ndary hull?
Maybe some teardrop-shaped fairings where the pylon joins the hull, or something styled similarly to
the "art-deco" ribbed sensor blocks that flank the deflector on the E?.

Oh, and one question about the turbolift topic...can they actually go through a nacelle?
(without getting cooked in the bussard-collector guts ?)

You might find the design comes together easier if you allow the saucer to be more Miranda-ish(though in this case it would need the raised back on the bottom as well as the top). Gives you room for the shuttlebays, some harder angles for the ring to connect to, etc.
Good idea - it would also stretch the design a bit so that it wouldn't be quite as squared off.

Re: TOS "Clipper Ship"

Here's a go at Miranda-ishness and some central struts to ease the fears of tipped-over/irradiated turbolift occupants. It also did allow me to lengthen it, it's a little less "squared-off" now.

Re: TOS "Clipper Ship"

Cool. I like the connecting dorsals, but I don't know about the extension of the saucer.

Can't wait to see it finished.

These are all pretty cool.

I am not sure you need the center strut (with this Miranda-style version - it's easy to imagine human-accessible engineering stuff being tucked away in the back of the saucer), but it's nice.

Thanks for sharing the various iterations.

Re: TOS "Clipper Ship"

ty guys! Here's a revised addition to the saucer matching the styling of the pods, allowing even more lengthening as well...

Re: TOS "Clipper Ship"

Tweaked the addition, tapered it a bit in C4D... I like this a lot more.

Re: TOS "Clipper Ship"

Y'know I'm almost starting to see this as an early TOS-era prototype for the Constellation class. Definitely looks a part of that lineage now.

Re: TOS "Clipper Ship"

You know, Klaus, I was not a fan of this when you first posted it. However, it has truly grown on me. And the extended saucer makes perfect sense of support and the dorsal and ventral connectors allow for turbolift travel nicely. It's easy to envision this in the TOS era fleet. Nice work.

Re: TOS "Clipper Ship"

Here's a bit of texture, mostly from the one that came w/the parts... I'll have to add the nacelle numbers in post when I do real beauty shots lol.
I still need to add shuttlebays and detailing to the aft part of the saucer, but here's a shot for now.
