Well, it's real simple. there was a thread, started by a friend of mine, some time ago about.."Ultimate Refit Refs." ...
Not only does this have nothing to do with the topic of this thread, the tone of this post is just not something we need to make a habit of here.

I'd just like to compliment your work on this particular CGI model. I agree w/the folks who've said that you've got a definite feel for aesthetics, as you've done some beautiful work here.

Fixed the dorsal phaser strips and restored the ones on the back of the neck section. I also did a lot of tweaking to the SubD objects in that area that you can't really see, but the separate surfaces now line up better and are pretty much ready to be frozen and joined together, assuming I don't need to make any further tweaks.



Hello Vector
Fantastic work I'd love to see the view out of that bridge conference room I bet that will be a great sight to see once modeled. Looking forward to more pictures.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Glad to see all is coming along up here. Just wanted everyone to know that we are very slowly getting the Actual Grandeur Forum back up and running not totally sure why or how the other one went down , but it sort of messed up and or disappeared

Although we did not get a lot of people to join over there from these boards we did have a few big names in the art world join up as well as Vektor and NightShadow posting over there too.

So maybe we can slowly get it back up to speed again. Don't expect alot right away but if you care to take a look feel free USS Grandeur Forum

I want to thank everyone that has been sending me their response as to rather or not they would purchase this ship as a model when Vektor gets finished with it and when we get the physicial model all complete.

I made a spot for people to cast their vote on the forum under the main Grandeur link, feel free to cast your vote for the model there, as well as on the Grandeur Website which BTW is getting a less cluttered slow make over too.
I've spoken with Vektor about making a physical model of this as I love the design it's one I would really like to have in my collection.

You can see an example of my work here.

Ooooh! Given your skills as a crafsman and the high quality of your work, I imagine this'll be awesome. What scale would you likely master it in...?

Yeah, not to mention the fact that he leaves blue saliva streaks all over the windows.

[Vektor, I do so love your work. The Grandeur is one of the most beautiful, and unique, designs that has ever crossed my optic nerves. My kids are just in awe, as I am as well. :thumbsup:
Thanks man, and the same to everyone else who has stuck with me through the very long lifespan of this project and has been so complementary.

I imagine there will be all sorts of renderings once the model is finished, including a nice, hi-res set of orthographics. :thumbsup:

Indeed I have spoken with REL about a physical model and I am positively giddy about the idea. I hadn't mentioned it myself because I didn't know whether or not REL wanted to make it public knowledge at this point. There may be a few details left to work out between the parties involved so don't anybody go placing orders just yet, but it's a very exciting prospect, especially with someone as talented as REL involved.

If we do go ahead with it, I will probably be making some additional modifications to the 3D model to allow the basic parts and pieces to be run off on a 3D printer. REL would then use those pieces as a starting point for building up the master, or at least that's how he has explained it to me. This should shorten the process considerably and would, of course, result in a physical model that is an exact representation of the 3D model.

I never would have thought when I started all this that it would involve the efforts of so many different people and turn into something quite so cool.

Re: USS Grandeur - One... More... Time!

You are not the only one who's giddy at the idea. I would probably slice my thumbs off with my XActo knife if I tried to build one, but I hope someday I'll get to enjoy watching Forbin, ThomasModelers, KirkTrekModeler and the other talented "real world" modelers in this forum bringing a plasticine Grandeur to life! :thumbsup:

(And am I the only one who positively salivates at the idea of a professional modeler like REL doing a multi-kilobuck replica of the Grandeur?!)

I will live in a trailer for college if that will allow me to buy the thing.

In Forbin's case it probably will become a three nacelled version with a huge phaser cannon, extended hull and the like..
