Re: deg3D_TOS.5 Enterprise

Thanks very much guys!

Hey, and great to see ya Prof!

Phase 7_Detailing_Main Hull

Saucer detailing continues. About all that is left to model is to update the whole command module area, the lower sensor array and the dish, and most probably some other odd-and-ends here and there that I'll decide on as I go, secondary hull phaser banks and retros for two...

Re: deg3D_TOS.5 Enterprise

Very nice, deg3D... I think you've honoured the original design with this cool detailing. What would we see if you zoomed us in very close to the hull? Would there be visible hull plating? Are you going to do any interior modelling?

Re: deg3D_TOS.5 Enterprise

Great work! Maybe they should've done this with TOS remastered.

One small request: the hull lettering atop the saucer is nice, but it could use a little TOS touch... instead of the ship name letters paralleling the registry, why not arch the ship name up toward the bridge in the middle?

The hull plating is modeled in Patrickivan, so yes you would see it. More interiors? No plans, but well see...

Sorry Wingsley, I never really liked the way they had the ship name graphically laid out in TOS (and was glad they redid it come the films). I never liked the way that straight perpendicular line of type stopped "the esthetic line flow" of the overall design, like a wall up in front, effectively killing the forward-moving sleekness for me. (It was all I could do to keep the ventral registers perpendicular, but TOS.5 E needs them that way on both sides IMO eh.) As to the dorsal registers, I tried a bunch of different styles, and this is the one I like the best. As it is, this is my own personal vision project of E, acting as my own art director on it, so the decision goes the way of the art director eh. I'll at least consider the idea further though...

Phase 8_Detailing

The saucer lower sensor array is done. Reduced the amount of panel lines on the bottom of the secondary hull and also added secondary hull phaser banks and retros...

Re: deg3D_TOS.5 Enterprise

Thanks very much dude, glad ya like 'er.

Phase 10_Forward Sensor Dish and Hanger Door(s) Grooves

Well that'll do 'er for the modeling phase. Did a bunch of invisible house-cleaning chores in prep for painting too, gotta keep it tidy eh. Added some other misc. detail here-and-there to suit. Also toned down the color(s) of the shuttlebay and binned the blue side wall running lights and back-wall interior booth graphics. All renders are updated at the "on the bench..." link on my website front-page if interested.

Phase 12_Painting and Some Fun

Still finishing up the secondary hull paint-job and some other odds and ends, but had some fun doing a quickie (will redo it later when E is finished) recreate of one of my all-time fav Trek shots...

Sweet Lord... That's gorgeous.

Your ship in orbit of a planet at 1680x1050 would be an AWESOME wallpaper.

Re: deg3D_TOS.5 Enterprise

Has anyone ever considered a similar tweaking of other space vessels in TOS, namely the Class F shuttlecraft, the Romulan Bird of Prey, K-7, etc.?

Yep, I've considered all of them, and the G7 shuttle is definite, and I have strong thoughts about the RBOP too. K-7, maybe. And a Klingon heavy-cruiser as well perhaps some day.
