ahh ok then
Eric´s original Apollo had one launcher under each delta pod, and i´ll keep them in my version too.
I think you've improved the look by lengthening the hull. As far as windows, are you going to cut them out or just use a texture? That's one thing that has kept me from attempting TNG era stuff, all those windows....
I´m manually cutting them. Proboolean, now a native plugin, does the task a bit more easy, but not simple. Other way is to cut (editable polly) the windows using a spline behind the mesh as a guide. It´s to much tedious, but produces a much more precise and clean mesh. I´m mixing the two options, using one or other depending where the cut is done.
After a long hiatus, I´m back to this wip. She is in process of complete redo.
I´m using for reference an old and low polly Apollo that I found online, and all the main pieces are now in place. At this moment, only the sec hull is teh final version. The other higher polly components will be installed later.
Looks good so far
Can't wait to see the Apollo's (post-Dominion War) bridge. Will she be laid out like the Enterprise-E with its dark textures, red carpets, etc.?
Technically, the Apollo was a contemporany of the Enterprise-C, so... her bridge don´t fits to the layout you mentioned. Anyway, to build bridges is far away from my current skill, so, I won´t build one.
After sometime, updates!
All the pieces of the "new" Apollo are now in place, but I still need to increase the pollys of those pods and impulse engines. After that, I´ll begin to put the details over her.
A little more...
Last one for today...
very good so far
I know that I have a huge backlog, but... I simply could not help myself.
When at work, I had an idea, so, in my lunch hour played a bit with her in sketchup, which I have installed in my old pc (a PIII with 512 RAM). I got the result attached, which I believe that has potential and, later, I´ll have to come back for her in 3ds max. Forget the dirty kirkythea renderings, cause I´m still learning how to use it.
Last two renderings...
This is pretty interesting, I like the Klingon vibe I'm getting from the underside...
Hey, I wasn´t seeing her by this way but, now you mentioned, yes, that half sphere and hole at the front makes me remeber the klingons. K´apla!
One year later, updates!
I think I did a good setup for the torp launcher this time. Naceles and "ass" still needs some refinements, as details still needs to be added all around. The green bits are placeholders.
Welcome back! Glad to see this isn't a dead project.
Again, changed the neck. The previous one was to much "thin".
The sec hull was rebuild too, and added things here and there.
Brilliant! The neck is definitely much improved by making it thicker. Love this thing!
