Those new nacelle caps are great.

Re: Star Fleet X-Technology Heavy Cruiser

Great work, Adam!

pic FCX4, the one that's almost a side view, makes your ship look like its going at warp speed even when standing still. It has this... majestic... air to it.

Largo is correct, the nav lights are flipped, the memory phrase is 'port wine left'. But, that is a minor nitpick.

The multi shaded panels give the CX a sense of massiveness and help convey the size of the ship. I get the sense you are depicting a real starship.

I like the egg shaped bussards, they look, well, faster. How would they look in a movie? Would they just glow, pulse, strobe, or rotate? I can imagine them pulsing with little gold, silver and white sparklies.

Maybe it's a mirror universe ship.

Re: Star Fleet X-Technology Heavy Cruiser

Thanks guys for your comments. I'm gonna fix the nav light thing. It's been pointed out to me multiple times on multiple forums at this point, so I guess I probably should.

Michael One: Thanks As far as the bussards are concerned, I envision them spinning at least. I like the idea of the gold, silver, and white pulsing lights though. Who knows? Maybe someday I'll animate this girl, then you'll get to find out.

Should have wallpapers and high-res orthos soon....although I'm working on another exciting project that I'll start previewing soon.

Well, in a way, yes. The Star Fleet Universe is basically an alternate version of the Trek Universe, with its own totally epic events like the General War, the ISC Pacification War, the Andromedan Invasion, and Operation Unity.
BTW, for anyone that wants high-res orthos, e-mail me at artist_boy001@yahoo.com. They're too big to post here, and I'm lousy at noticing when I have PM's.

Re: Star Fleet X-Technology Heavy Cruiser

Icy_Penguigo, I just want to say I'm am very impressed with Vincennes' newfangled warp nacelles. Wow! That design is breath-taking, and I'm not just saying that to butter you up.

I'm really scratching my head about how you did it. That is a very artistic, very sophisticated design. Those overlapping shapes are inspiring me with ideas for other designs. I hope you post images of just the nacelle. It's impressive all by itself.

Thanks, Wingsley! Honestly, I just started playing around with shapes in 3Dmax, and somehow wound up with that.

I'll get around to posting more images of this ship(and her engines), right now I'm just a little wrapped up in finishing my Klingon X-cruiser so I can make my deadline for the X1R cover.

And thanks to everyone else as well.

Nice work on the CX, especially the front end caps on the nacelles. How do you get that "wheel-spoke" effect anyway?

Tell Steve to put the New Jersey on the cover of something. She's my favourite SFB ship, and I'd love to see you do a model of her too.

Re: Star Fleet X-Technology Heavy Cruiser

By the Penguin's request.. this is a test of the primary hull. I'll probably do a section a day pending what he thinks of each piece. (This is only here to get his attention, I'm not attempting to detract from his spiffy design in any way shape or form!)
