Nice. I don't think the background's too bad, actually.
Shuttlecraft Galileo of the Enterprise F.
quick sketchyness drawn with just a pen and lack of pencil-planning stage hence the roughness. and then badly coloured in photoshop.
Sort of 50% shuttlecraft 50% 1970's italian sportscar. just wanted to inject a bit of sexyness into the humble shuttle. whether i pulled that off or not is open to debate haha
These are really nice. I especially like the Seleya. Keep 'em coming.
Hmm, I actually like that one quite a lot. Is it intended for the STO Enterprise F? Because I think the curves fit the overall massively cetacean lines of that big 'ol space whale quite well.
i guess so, never particularly liked the F design they went for. it reminds me of a wide pelican.
I think this is an awesome design. Want to see more of this one.
Here is an idea..do some orthos for this design
A refit with cranked nacelle supports looks cool enough.
i can barely face drawing my own stuff more than once, and i dont see why i should draw someone elses refit connie with dodgy pylons.
unless you're going to pay me :P
Great shuttle! was it inspired by the Bertone Lancia Stratos?
thanks! i had the 'standard' stratos + a bit of original lotus esprit shape in my head. or any wedge shaped sportscar really. never seen that bertone one before. very very cool.
Yeah, when I am fishing around for ideas I like to google "concept cars" and "concept motorcycles" and see what images come up.
Yeaah, Bertone makes some of the best concept cars in the world.
Italian design is one of the best in the world, and has produced many of the most exotic automobiles ever built.
I've always had in my mind that the next shuttlepods should be sized more like supercars: super compact in design, and more like performance jets but maybe stretched out for the sake of more carrying capacity, as opposed to being tall and blocky like that Type-15 shuttlepod.
Tall and boxy is easier from a production standpoint.
This is a really interesting design! I'm not a fan of the over/under nacelles though. If I may suggest, I think a config where you have the nacelles on outboard pylons like NX class and where you have the nacelles now have a sensor pod or similar.
nahh i wont change it. i like this one. especially how the nacelles are layed out.
Too bad aerodynamic and production standpoints don't always coincide.
At least the shuttle design for The Final Frontier looked sleek overall, and actually looked a little aerodynamic.
I think the Type-15 is probably the worst offender.
definitely not practical from a production standpoint. i could see the Seleya having a few on board. far side nacelles a bit wonky but my brain was too tired to work out what it should be like. suppose it could be a fighter if you're so inclined, but i never liked star trek fighters. it has a see-through canopy. or a force field. who knows.
and i swear it was less greenish more blue-grey earlier
messing around with foamyboard stuff. sorry for the roughness, the ships only about 5 inches long so its hard to get it nice. sort of excelsior/enterprise c time ship, saucer might be a bit small, oh well haha!
cool Ship Has a very FASA TNG-ish style to it
I agree with Kaiser, and I also am reminded of one of Matt Jefferies sketches with the scribbled annotation, "looks like a duck."
Separate names with a comma.
