Agreed. You're getting much better at this!
I got bored and decided to do an exercise in scaling.
This is the result.
Note that the Connie on both pages is the same size, providing a link to keep the ships on the 2nd page in scale with those on the first.
Yes, I know I've done more ships than this. And yes, some of the ships appeared under other names originally (such as my MU ships).
Awesome size comparsion charts
I like that. Some of these are actually quite good.
2nd page updated (increased scale of most of the smaller ships)
You know what occurs to me, especially with regard to the smaller ships:
Why are there little scale Constitution-class bridge modules on top of them all? You'd think the hardware would look different for something so small...
True...dirty little secret: FASA did that all the dang time. I tried putting "constant scale" bridge domes on the other ships and it was just a mess. Those little ships should be much bigger if I were being absolutely correct on scale.
Damocles-class dreadnought (Terran Imperial Starfleet)
Epic new ship
Interesting that the two inner nacelles line up directly above the two shuttlebay clamshel doors.
I had this idea of a shuttlebay directly in front to two nacelles to either side modified so that the warp nacelles could act like a subspace catapult/warp magrail--so that the shuttles warp drive and the starships nacelles would interact slinging the shuttle aft at tremendous speed. Maybe with a soliton wave.
In another thread, I got pointed at a ship the poster wanted me to try my hand at doing something similar to. Here's the result:
Majestic-class supercruiser (3 configurations)
Nice Ship design
post replaced (see below)
I don't like how upright the "neck" is on that one. Lacks a certain gracefulness. Also, I'm no sure how I feel about the secondary hull being all curve. This is one I'd have to see in 3d to really judge. But i do like the pylons, I live the 1/4 Stargazer approach.
What ^ Said
Well, in defense of the design, Excelsior class necks tend to be very vertical and "thick necked". The swan-neck style (a la a Connie) wouldn't work with that 2ndary...
This does look a little better I think...
Partial list of ships in class:
Robert the Bruce
John Paul Jones
Did some clean up on the 2ndary hull:
Tinker tinker tinker...
