Thanks everyone, I appreciate the feedback.
Here's the part that will go on the belly.
Absolutely beautiful work. This is going to be one hell of a ship.
Not necessarily. Consider this:
Apply a set total of armour across a large two-sided surface. Per square inch you'll have to have some pretty thin armour.
Now take the exact same amount of armour and spread it on a thin tube. Per square inch you'll have alot more armour. Not only that but the tube is one of the most rigid structures.
what is this 'armour' of which you speak? star trek ships have shields.
I think he means the greebled hull panels which adorn Klingon ships.
That attention to detail on the underbelly piece is awesome. It, and the D-5 from ENTERPRISE look like nice post-K't'inga designs.
I hope you go for your own nacelle designs too, unless you incline stock ones very heavily inward on the bottom so as to have the side view remain sleek.
Yeah, orthos would be very useful.
In the future something that you may want to use. The clippers used for buzz cuts often have finned attachments that might be a good front end for impulse blocks. Also, for smaller craft, a thing called a sewing foot might make good landing skids.
I'm working out the shape for the bottom. The connection between the rear of the ball, and the lower body is something I'm still messing with so it'll probably change.
The more you progress, the more I like it. And I loved it when you were just starting. A very cool design. And, yeah, as of right now it almost looks like the "head" is hinged to look down. Maybe to scowl at it's enemies before it fires. LOL Seriously, it is looking awesome!
Wow, you're really doing a great job on this... it's fixing everything the Vorcha from TNG got wrong.
I can't wait to build it.
Absolutely great work. This is my favorite Klingon ship design so far. Can't wait to see the finished product!
Awesome sculpt-build, politely curious if any line drawings or schematics are forthcoming ?
Just my initial idea sketch, which I scanned and made blueprints from. After it's all finished I'll make those available for anyone that wants to make a CG version of it.
Very nice progress!
The K'tinga is one of my favorite Trek ships. Such an original design. Thank god for Matt Jefferies. At first, I was skeptical, but now that I see all the hull etching and other details I'm liking this project a lot. Keep it up!
Thanks again for the comments.
More on the bottom.
This ship is making me K'tingly in all of my K'naughty places.
