    Perhaps a tiny bump with a pin-point light effect, to suggest a lamp? Like a small phaser nipple. Or, you could model some dental mirrors flying alongside the ship:)

    I've been lurking in this thread since the beginning - I figure it's time to tell you how AWESOME this ship is!

    Yowza! She sure is purdy, fellers!

    This is the plausibly retro look that ENT should have had--this or Vektor's Vanguard, which took the retro-futurist thing in a different, less stream-lined but equally pleasing direction. This truly is lovely.

    Nice! :techman:

    But I gotta say that I still don't care for those spotlights. They're not TOS yet if you're going to have them then you need a light source for them.

    deg3D put small bump/fairings on his TOS shuttle for spotlight housings...OTOH I wonder if it would look cheesy to simulate those "low-viz" strip self-illuminated Navy type markings on these older ships? Perhaps as an older technique than the TMP "spot light" illumination?

    I'm usually against bumping threads for no reason, but this ship is just too beautiful to let it slip off the 1st page.

    Interesting you say that...I was thinking the other day Madman should have a sticky thread..."Madman's workbench" or "Under construction at Madman's Shipyard" or something:)

    Well, i'm not sure of the "Fairness" of having a single thread dedicated to one person stickied at the top, but certainly a thread showcasing some of the more skilled members. Perhaps along the same lines of what we have over in the fanfic thread. One is for the winners of each months challenge, one is for people to recommend fanfics for others to read.

    True, yes. It was just a thought, when I saw those other posts. :)

    I'll stop bumping now. :)
