Hey all! Mark Kingsnorth (who designed the Insignia-Class) contacted me recently and asked if it was ok if he made a mesh of my Dedication-Class design (formerly Enterprise-F contestant, now happily bowing to Adam's gorgeous design!). Not only is it more than ok, but it was also very nice of him to ask if he could use it as a project base! http://www.scifi-meshes.com/forums/showthread.php?77955-Chris-Madden-s-Dedication-Class He's started a 3D buildup over at scifi-meshes, and since it would be transparently toolbaggish of me to throw myself a plug like this, I'm mainly posting to show off his awesome interpretation of the (fairly limited) concept I did. He's an awesome designer and modeler, and I'm uber-excited to see what types of interpretations and improvements he's gonna make to the design! We've already had some good conversations about overall sizing, textural treatments, and the like, and I'd love to hear anyone's feedback on the design as it was painted or as it develops. Oh, BTW, since she's not the Enterprise-F, and since she's the "Dedication Class" (and I'm a huge space buff), I was thinking about naming her the U.S.S. Discovery. This would place it in a sisterhood of five ships, Discovery, Endeavour, Atlantis, Columbia, Challanger, and Buran, after the 6 earth shuttles. Now of all times I find that a fitting homage. Oh, yes. And the super-sexy part is, when it's done I'm gonna do a large-format (~15") 3D printed model of this for my shelf. Hotcha! Oh, PPPS - if making a post that is primarily linking to another BBS is somehow in violation of rules, I humbly obey and withdraw the post.
