I LOVE those bussards!
Good, then they will stay.
I'm glad I'm headed in a good direction. Once this is done, I can build something different, for a change.
It's just the default Blender color, with Ambient Occlusion turned on, with a ambience and spec level of 0.25.
Here's tonight's last update...
OK, the textures are DONE!
From a few familiar angles...
And some others...
I think it turned out very well. Certainly my best model to date.
After Galactica goes off, I will try and rig up the spotlights, and make a wallpaper or two.
Beautiful work, it really looks awesome...HUGE nacelles, but they seem appropriate for this design.
Maybe some ortho views?
Very well indeed. I haven't done a count , but there were so many "you're really helping me like this design" comments. This certainly was a great thread.
I'd love to see your take on more of the conjecture/movie stuff....
the Nar....? romulan squid ship, heck, a 3-D rendering of the new bridge?
Judexavier, get to crackin' on those blueprints!
LOL. Yeah, sorry. You know, I almost recycle-bin-ed (?) those, after the toy photos came out. I need to start over, using MadMan orthos as a base reference.
Absolutely beautiful, Madman. I like this ship. A lot. Thank you for your excellent work.
I'm calling this one done, except for maybe the deflector dish, I might mess with that texture some, I'm not sure it stands up against the rest of the texturing job.
And the Orthos!
Anyone else have photobucket try to install antivirus2009 on their box? I was uploading these latest pictures, and I had to fight to get past it. Thankfully I was using FireFox.
I think I might take a jab at the Narada next... Even though it looks like a pile of old scrap wire.
Great modeling job there Mad man.
The black delta on the clamshell doors - is that on the toy?
Nope, I just thought it needed something back there.
OK, here's a better looking dish...
Ok, one minor nitpick. As you can see in this image: http://img518.imageshack.us/img518/1628/constitutionclasstrekxivj8.jpg there seems to be a few extra windows on the engine hull that were covered up by that big shuttle in the way in the original pic release. A small detail for sure, but one that could probably be added without too much trouble.
I see what you mean. It looks like there may be another "bank" of them, up in front of the row that is there.
That's a fantastic job MadMan. It is probably close to how the real ship looks. The only thing I notice, is that the "air intake" looking things where the pylons connect to the nacelles look too wide. In the image of the real Enterprise, they look like more of a rounded point. Also, the shame of your bridge is slightly inaccurate when comparing it with the toy.
However, these are just minor nitpicks.
Yep, I agree with both of those comments.
The intake things, I really had a hard time getting them to line up at all, so I was happy they turned out as well as they did.
The bridge, if the toy is accurate, looks like that area is much narrower than I have made it, but I didn't want to re-built that entire portion after the new pics came out. If I ever re-build this, it will be after I have some very accurate blueprints to work from. I think this model will suffice for quite a while, though.
