Akira Refit

Hello all,

I have been working on a new model. I have always liked the Akira design, save for some small things that I didn't care for. So, I decided to re-make the Akira as I would like it.

This made me wonder - what might you add or remove from the Akira class? Let me know and maybe I can work it in!

Re: Akira Refit

i think you are doing pretty fine job there already, looks great, find your pylons much more elegant than on the original, nice fluid shaping, and the full saucer makes it look more traditional, totally sound all around, i think all this needs is some colour

Not saying you have to do this, but I never liked the angular-looking nacelles on the First Contact ships. Given their registry numbers, they all should have had nacelles like the Galaxy and Nebula classes.

Re: Akira Refit

Thanks for the encouragement. Dukhat, that's an interesting point that I hadn't considered. I probably will keep the current nacelles in the interest of maintaining momentum, though - I'm getting close enough where I will move on to texturing soon.
