Carolina Class - JJ Style

I came across an old model of the Carolina I had lying around a week or so ago, and thought that it would be cool to mod it a bit to let it fit with the style that's used in the upcoming movie. Reviewing the model again, I came to the conclusion that it was utter crap, and have started from scratch again. Here's an early WIP image; I am aware of some of the errors in the mesh. So... What do you guys think about it?

Re: Carolina Class - JJ Style

The model looks skillfully made so far, but I don't like the "J.J. style".

Re: Carolina Class - JJ Style

I kinda miss the old one.

That said, it reminds me slightly of the NX-1000 'Bonaventure' from last year's Trek calendar. I like it.

Actually I don't like the JJ style either. At least not in it's whole cloth form. This on the other hand I like better than before. Go figure?

Re: Carolina Class - JJ Style

Praetor, it is the Bonaventure, although I have a fan made techsheet that said Carolina. It's just an updated version

I've heard it before that this version is preferred over the original. I hope I can live up to your expectations

Re: Carolina Class - JJ Style

I like the updates you've done so far. But I think the seams in the tubular part of the hull should be a lot smaller.

Looks great. Just make sure it has curved pylons.

I'm glad you caught my tongue in cheekness. I imagine you will sway me, actually.

Re: Carolina Class - JJ Style

I'm not all that familiar with the class, but it looks like it has potential. Where will the bridge and warp engines be placed?

Re: Carolina Class - JJ Style

The bridge will be on top of that tubular hull, on the same spot as where it would have been on a normal saucer. The engines will be on pylons jutting out from the back of the ship, where that strip ends; the impulse engines will be at the end of the strip as well If you have trouble following me, do a quick google search for NCC-1000

It's so simple it actually works! I like the JJ touches as well with the deflector dish. Looking forward to future updates.

That was me. When I drew the Carolina schematic, I finished it before Meni released his Bonaventure orthos. So, out of respect to him, I renamed mine to something else, and imagined it as a Frigate (something we'd not seen in TOS Trek). So, there are differences between mine and his. I'm honored that you chose to flesh mine out in 3D!
