More work, including some adjustments to the design and work on the underside.
I don't know what I'm keying off of visually, but this looks like a nice mix of both old and new Trek. I like it!
Another bussard test.
Your Fed-klink combo even as a joke would look to be of better quality than what we got in last years Hallmark offering. Hope they try harder with Kelvin. They put more work into their Star Wars ornaments..grumble
Hit a minor setback with a corrupted file, but it's a good thing I like to save multiple files at various stages. Only had to redo a little bit of the work.
Columbus is almost done at this point. Just a few minor details. The Azaerel and Aquilia are done, although they need a proper registry on them. The Clark needs most of her work done on the sphere area.
A little humor I discovered while I was working on the Columbus.
Working on the TOS-Era refit of the Columbus.
-Deflector 25% smaller
-Swept back pylons
-Impulse engine where it is located on the Constituion
-Laser banks upgraded to the more powerful Phaser banks
-Fission (fusion?) torpedoes upgraded to Photon torpedoes
-Other minor differences
Undecided if this ship would see a TMP refit. Also did a size check and the Constitution is 2.5x bigger than the Columbus.
I started this originally as a design for a clunky battleship....that obviously didn't happen.
I think you should know that the second video doesn't work. Something about it being private.
The Klingon design flair looks nice with a straight up saucer.
On a personal note: I would think that a Klingon Federation would be more like the UFP than the Klingon Empire, and thus would be more likely to get into brawling matches with their Imperial counterparts (or maybe the Romulans), as opposed to getting into firefights with the UFP.
Sorry to hear that you had a file problem, but I happy to hear that you managed to compensate for it.
Last I've heard, Starfleet used fusion warheads prior to using Photons (unless we are to refer and defer to Enterprise, in which case Photonic warheads might have been a part of the mix.
I'm pretty sure they had a preference against fission warheads, because if I remember correctly, fission reactions usually leaves behind more, hard radiation.
At this point, I assume that the Columbus does eventually see an additional refit. Albeit I haven't decided yet whether I'm going to defer to your Columbus, or Forbin's Columbus, due to them being too close to the same time for both of them to have existed in the same time-line, even if the one with the lower registry (yours in this case), was lost.
But as much as I like Forbin's kitbashes, I have an uncanny favoritism towards completely original designs, made possible of course by 3D models.
She has some really nice curves...
And this video helps to illustrate them even more.
I'll say this much about Ryan Church's Enterprise design: she does have her fair share of design elements that are fun to use.
And I've decided that I personally would have to pick The Lost Era as my favorite time period for seeing new designs, due to there being many currently unused registries in the era, ranging from the 10000-range, to especially the 20000-range to the 50000-range. The registry gaps really stop at the 60000-range.
Even so, the post-nemesis time period is my personal favorite for creating new designs myself.
1. Links should be fixed now.
2. I decided that she doesn't see a TMP refit.
4. About the new Enteprise, if the secondary hull and pylons were completely rebuilt, she'll be a whole lot better looking. I actually like the nacelles, and I think it 's the pylons that really kill it for people. I don't mind the saucer as much, but I miss the little inward curve on the underside of the saucer.
Some pics of stuff from the past. No new updates at the moment. Got sucked into STO and KSP again. That and my creative spark is fucking me over.
1. Ambassador Dreadnaught.
One of my favorite Next Gen era ships, I always wanted to see a dreadnaught variant. The original model is by Dave Metlesets, modified by myself.
2. USS Redemption, JJ Reality
This is a concept I came up with watching the 09 Star Trek one day. It is suppose to feel more Constitution like, with nods towards the Excelsior (NX version). She is also about the same size of the Constitution. Concept by me, perspective drawing by Adam Kop.
3. Gorn Visara-class Battleship
This one was inspired by the Gorn frigate concept for STO.
Low Poly version of the character from the game Vectorman.
5. IKS Krage
Design concept for my ST: Renegade movie I'm working on.
6. Concepts 1
7. Concepts 2
Redid some materials on Madman's Metaluna model a long time ago.
Tonight's movie: She Gods of Shark Reef, 1958
Despite its title, it has absolutely nothing to do with April Fool's.
Small work on the bridge, impulse area, and nacelles. Oh by the way, those aren't torpedo launchers above the impulse engines. Obviously.
Nice work! And I like the warp nacelles, especially the "fin" on top, gives it a '50s rocket ship (or possibly Cadillac) look.
You mean like this
