This has got to be tenth or so time you're remodelling the saucer from the scratch

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

I finished blocking out most of the secondary hull.




I'll probably slap together some stuff for the deflector assembly and then start working on the nacelle struts.

Now is a good time for all of you to let me know anything you absolutely love or absolutely can't stand.
Vektor, the lines on this revision flow together SO much better, especially in 3-D; your "work" model is better than 90% of the crappy "real" models one sees at scifi-meshes.com these days. Unfortunately, the flow is now so velvety smooth and liquid that what I can only presume is a shuttleboat or "captain's yacht"...



...looks completely, jarringly out of place.

Unless this feature is going to be exactly the same color as the surrounding hull and will only be a faint outline on the finished product, I'd either hide the entire thing under retractable flush-mounted doors that follow the existing lines of the Grandeur, modify the profile of the "yacht" so that it better matches the surrounding ship, or consider scrapping the feature entirely.

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

^^

I'm guessing, given the loction and what we already see of the model, that that outline shows the hidden vehicle that would be inside that hangar. (What, no "crossed fingers" smiley?! )

As always, looks beautiful, Vektor. I'm going to reserve any comments about features I don't like until you've added some more detail to define and delineate; when all we have to go on are the basic shapes and profiles, items that might look odd now could provide much-needed contrast and tension as they are further developed. I realize that by then it might be too late, of course, but, hey, we all know how much you love recreating Grandeur from scratch ...

It is neither. That is the USS Blackfoot a scout fighter craft, that is assigned to Grandeur. And I think Vektor drew an outline of the ship just to show everyone what will be inside the hanger bay and it purpose there.

For pictures of the Blackfoot go to http://www.sextondesign.net/Blackfoot/ Hope that helps some.

The Blackfoot outline is for reference only to show its location within the hooded docking bay. It's not going to be mounted on the outside of the ship.

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

More refinements to the bridge decks, the docking bay and the deflector assembly.






If you look closely, you may notice that the bridge decks shown above have been transferred directly from the last version of the Grandeur that was nearly complete, with a few adjustments to match the new primary hull. This actually added a deck and I haven't decided if I'm going to keep it.

One other thing that should go without saying: All I've done so far is rough out the general shapes with sub-d objects. There are all kinds of little errors, flaws, gaps, discontinuities and so forth that will need to be fixed as I go along.

CaptainRoop, FYI, Banzai class fighter was designed by Paul S. Cargile, and, the mesh of that craft, as noted by him, is way too big. But I guess it's a good thing in this case, since it could fit into the hangar bay more easily.

The latest updates look terrific, btw... this could wind up being the best "non-canon" Federation starship design I've ever seen. :thumbsup:

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

Thanks for the compliments, gang. Just be aware that there are a number of things that still can and probably will change before this is done. I've already discovered a couple of things I liked in the 2D views that aren't working out so well in 3D.

Here's a couple more WIPs, probably the last for today, showing pretty much the entire ship:
