    That's interesting - I had no idea about the sailboat angle. I did name it after a 'boat' though (and a fish!); the USS Albacore, which was a navy research submarine. It felt right as my ship is intended to be a prototype/R&D vessel as well.

    My first name for this ship was Adelie, which is a species of rather fearless and pugnacious penguin. But as the ship got beefier, naming it after a cute little penguin seemed less appropriate!

    As a huge fan of Penguins that would have rocked as a name as well.

    Calling it a day on this project for now, although I'll be making some scenes for it to be featured in at some point in the not too distant future. Here are some ship images:

    Fantastic work. Always loved the Ambassador class and seeing it reworked with such care is beautiful.

    Amazing. I'd love to see the interiors following that approach.

    I like everything except the saucer impulse engines. I can't unsee a hot rod's intake blower when I look at them.
