    Well, this is ALL, um, VERY interesting (yawn), but I recently downloaded Google SketchUp, and have been watching the videos, and TONIGHT, I will be making...














    Wait for it....















    Sweet anticipation....














    A CHAIR!

    Feh! If that chair ain't got shiny nacelles and plenty of room to park a shuttlecraft, it's got no place in this thread!

    You may be interested in this, however:

    Enjoy! :rommie:

    What if it's a chair where Captain Kirk can park his ass while commanding the Enterprise?:p

    I did like that little ship... I might get around to messing with it someday. At this point, my TOS Enterprise has taken much more time that I originally thought. Though, that might be due to all these interruptions, you know, like work. :)

    Bah! Stupid chair.

    It ended up looking like an old gas station that was converted into an art gallery by burnt-out hippies strung out on strong weed they didn't know was laced with LSD. (Or LDS.)

    So, I tossed off a quick pencil & paper sketch of the Metaluna-D and went to bed.

    Well that's just slick...my first impression was perhaps the elusive-not-yet-realized Abrams Nu-ED...
    Nice.

    Hmmm, the Metaluna-D has possibilities...

    This thread is great. Fantastic work, as always, MadMan.

    Wow, that first ship is also awesome. I could totally buy that has the hero ship in a series. Where did it come from?

    It's the Metaluna, designed by the Judexavier, and yes, it's awesome - check it out in this thread:

    http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=115599

    You'll also see MadMan's spiffy model that he rustled up - it's a beauty. Great to see a cool design fleshed out like that - that's one of the great things about these boards. :)

    For some reason, the combination of 'Kirk', 'ass' and 'chair' in the same sentence conjured up that image in my mind. That's probably a damning statement about my lack of maturity, and I should really sort my life out - I've been told as much on several occasions (but it's so frickin' fun, darnit!!)... ;)


    <Ahem!> We now return you to your regular broadcast - nothing to see here, folks...

    Thanks. :) Yeah, that first ship is the Metaluna... Judexavier outdid himself with that one. It was the most fun model I've built in quite a while. :)

    You mean animation? That would be awesome...

    (P.S. I'm still working on those orthos :) Life ,work, death and taxes seem to interrupt things way too much...)

    How's your latest TOS-E coming along? Have you had any notion to put your own spin on it, along the lines of Vector/DEG/anyone-else-I'm-leaving-out..? THAT would be a great thread :)

    Just found another conversion of this on Deviantart:

    http://karanua.deviantart.com/art/Defiant-A-Setup-162482413

    This one looks particularly nice, IMO - the hull seems 'greyer' here, giving it a more TOS-y look, as opposed to the whiter TMP-style colours of Dave Metlesits' version. It's really cool that it works in both ways, considering how it's got that blend of both visual styles. :)

    As for animation - wow. Seriously, just... wow. That might be too awesome for my poor, frail, mortal form to handle...


    ...not that it's going to stop me taking a look, mind! ;)

    That one severly reminds me of Starfleet Battles Now :)
