    You should change the windows, it looks like an angry spider.

    No chance. It was too much work to begin with and I like the way it turned out.
    UPDATE...
    A few more details added to the front of the ship.

    I agree with Tom Hendricks. The windows are such a radically different style than the rest of the ship that they really do detract.

    If you love them and want to keep them, then I would suggest making most (or all) of the upcoming detailing based on those curvy triangle shapes so that the final design looks more unified.

    The thing is, the rest of this ship is made of gently rounded rectangles and smooth curves and lines, with similarly square-themed nurnies in the detail areas. It seems like a close cousin to Rick Sternbach's Starfleet designs. So, we would except to see rounded rectangle windows here, too. The "angry spider" look comes out of nowhere. Maybe you're trying to challenge expectations? I dunno, at this point it just looks tacked on.

    Just my two cents. Obviously, it's your spaceship and you make the decisions.

    I’m kinda sick of working on this so this is the last of it for now. A close up of the airlock.

    Started my second infusion of Chemo today, not feeling too bad yet.
    UPDATE...
    I started on the panels last night and finished them up when I got home. I don’t think they will actually be this deep.

    Thanks.
    UPDATE...
    Aarrrghh! Can’t believe I’m starting another ship. But here it is.
    I got the idea for this one when looking at two of my remote controls. One long one and one short one. The short one was on top of the bigger one and upside down and I liked the shape and wanted to try something with it and this is what I got.
    This is nice shot of the back of the ship.

    A nice shot of the front with gun placements.

    And the bottom of the ship. I’m thinking of redoing the round things in the back because of segmenting.

    Ok. Well I redid these round parts and made a few changes. I’m really happy with them so far. Still have some bits I want to add.

    And here I added some stuff, not sure what what but they’re there.

    Another look at a bunch of antennas I added to the front. I think this might be it for details here.

    I’ve started to add textures to the engine bell.
