Wow... I have got to get me one of those.
Check my signatures on getting one of those when the time comes.
Actually, I was talking about the real thing... but a model might have to do. Thanks for the info. :thumbsup:

Are you going to be filling in any other areas of the ship besides the bridge? I have a corridor concept that would fit well with the style you have already established. I also have a warp core that I sketched a couple of years ago that might work for you...

I just have no idea where they are in my huge mess of files.

We can talk about it, need to talk with other people. Dig them up and send stuff to me in E-mail ldr@neo.rr.com

Must be having problems getting that quote thing down. Sorry

I hope I wasn't being pushy. I just hate for my work to sit gathering dust if I think it could be useful. Use them if you wish or chuck it in the trash. Your choice.

I'll try and find them. I made a paper model of the corridor that I may still have somewhere. You know, that sounded really old school...

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.
Kazeite I want to thank you again for the FYI on the creator of the Banzai class ship. We managed to get ahold of him and got the offical use so to speak. It was great to know after all this time. And now will be able to put his name down as creator instead of just unknown, for future pics.

Got some work done on the nacelles today. They're not going to be much different from the previous versions, just enough to warrant rebuilding them.

Great as usual, of course there are people that would kill to get the cast off you are no longer happy with.

Well maybe not kill, but scratch anyway.

Ooooh, I like the new integration of the "fin" on top of the nacelle... very slick. :thumbsup:

Vektor - she's looking great. Almost what I wish the Enterprise E was (although I happen to like the Enterprise E's design, even without the neck).

Can't wait to see the final version. :thumbsup:

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

Okay gang, I've gone almost as far as I need to with the test model except for some additional work on the underside of the primary hull. I've decided to run a couple of turntable animations to get a better feel for what the ship looks like from a full 360 degree perspective. Here is the first one, rendered from a high angle. The next one to be posted shortly will be from a low angle.

Rotation from Above (DivX, 794KB) - Please right-click and save to your computer; you'll save me some bandwidth on repeat viewings and it will play better to boot.

Have a look and let me know what you think about the ship's overall proportions and any other particulars you want to mention.

Here's the second turntable animation from below.

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

Finally, here's a couple of close-up renderings showing the latest changes.




As you can see, I simplified the bridge structure in a way that I think is much cleaner and less complicated. It will also work better with the saucer separation scheme I have in mind once I get to that point.

I also made some changes to the deflector assembly. I made the oval shape slightly triangular and canted it forward a little to reduce its bluntness.

Opinions?

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

That's looking real nice. My only (minor) concern is how the neck joins up to the engineering hull - the slant feels like it's going back pretty sharply, like the neck's about to pinch off. It might be just some shadow coming off the lower hull making it look that way, though.

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

Hey Vektor, Seraphim here. We've all come to enjoy your designs of starships and what not over the years, and I'm sure I can speak for everyone when I say well done on the new USS Grandeur.

I do have a question however, so bear with me here. What would you say is the purpose of this new ship? Is it your concept of what a future Starfleet vessel should look like, for perhaps an upcoming Series VI? Or is this ship simply an exercise in the latest design trends, if there is such a thing, of starships?

We're all curious as to how you would describe and/or categorize this latest effort?

Thank-you. :thumbsup:
