Reviving the USS Boundless

Hey guys,
So a few months back I had a motherboard crash that ate my raid 5 setup resulting in the loss of a lot of work from the previous year including this project.

I'm finally rebuilding this model, now named the USS Boundless. The rebuild is proceeding with only the png's to work from. none of the original work survived the crash. Along the way I am taking the opportunity to tweak a few things from the previous version. Take a look, tell me what you think.

Pretty cool Excelsior inspired design, with some AbramsTrek in there too (the engineering hull).

Re: Reviving the USS Boundless

Thanks for the comments guys! Couple new images, reworking the impulse engines and top view of the whole ship for those that aren't aware of the "swallow tail". And yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, the nacelle pylons are different sizes, I have decide which size I like best yet.

I think the thinner pylon fits the nacelle and swallow tails better. But man, I did not expect that engineering section to be so... thin.

Re: Reviving the USS Boundless

It's length belies it's width. It's about 140 feet wide at the current scale I am using.

Re: Reviving the USS Boundless

Based upon the top view, the sec hull looks to much thin. Maybe, you can make it a bit more "fat".
About the pylons, I suggest you something with the lines of the Ingram Class:

Im curious... How you built the sec hull in sketchup? I believe it wasnt an easy job...

From the top view, it does look thin, but other views look fine. I like it. The pylons have yet to be detailed. They'll change a bit as I work on them.

Hehe, as for the secondary hull build, yea, it wasn't easy and would be hard to explain. Here's an exploded view of the starboard half:

I agree- The width looks fine.

Re: Reviving the USS Boundless

This project is still alive. Actually did some work on it this week.


Click the thumbnail for a large pic.
(hmmm, apparently with how photobucket does things now you have to click 2 more times on their zoom functions to get the actual full size image)

Will post some up close images of recent changes tomorrow if anyone is interested.
