I'm not usually keen on the Sovvy-style black circuit board stuff, but...
think green! less "captain's yacht" and more "captain's bicycle".
Here's a quick update. No time for long-winded explanations right now; these will have to speak for themselves.
You're not even done yet, but this looks good enough for the silver screen!
By request of The Commander, a new wallpaper image for your desktp pleasure.

I want the story on that orange spotlight just starboard of the secondary deflector!
I envy your work, really. If I ever win the lottery I am going to hire you as a tutor.
It's not a spotlight, it's a reflection from a light source in the HDRI map I'm using for the lighting.
I like the look without the dozens of little windows that most of these ships have. Are you adding those? Because if not, cool.
It will have windows but more along the lines of the original or refit Enterprise as opposed to something like the Galaxy class.
Some of you awhile back may have taken the Grandeur Model Poll. That was back when Vektor was no where close to being finished, now things are a bit closer. If you will please take a moment and take the new Grandeur Model Poll, from our website so we can get new updated figures, that would be appreciated.
So, this one has two navigational deflectors?
She looks so buetiful there i bet Doug Dexler and John Eaves and Andrew Probert are green with envy
It has the usual main navigational deflector on the front of the engineering hull and an auxiliary deflector on the front of the saucer similar to the USS Voyager or the lesser-known Nova class. For the Grandeur the aux deflector has slightly greater significance for reasons that have not yet been revealed.
There is also some debate about whether the aux deflector would be powered under normal circumstances. If I'm not mistaken, I think Voyager's was rarely, if ever, lit. But we'll have to see how that one shakes itself out.
I visited the Grandeur website for the first time, ever, to participate in the poll.
When I did so - once - it informed me that I wasn't allowed to "vote repeatedly."
Still a few bugs in the system.
Not my department, but I'll pass it along.
I'm at a loss for words here. She looks breathtaking.
Okay, somebody help me out here. How big is a standard escape pod like the ones used on the Enterprise-E? I could scale one off a Sovereign class schematic but, well, I'm lazy. Surely somebody has had to dig this up before.
Also, anybody know how many people they're supposed to hold?
I changed it using the same wording in the poll but went with a different free poll site. It should be working now, but if it is not I am at lost as to what the problem may be.
The old poll seemed to work OK, let me know if you have any more problems. You can click on a e-mail link on the poll page and just let me know which way you would like to vote if nothing else.
First pass on the upper primary hull escape pods. This is pretty much the standard Sovereign class configuration.
Honestly, I can't decide about these. I'm torn between what has become the traditional barnacle encrustation of escape pods or sticking with a nice, clean, uncluttered hull. I'm thinking about a compromise where the pods are concealed beneath hinged or blow-away hull plates.
I've also been tinkering with the hull textures, trying to develop a final look instead of just recycling the generic scattered plate maps I've been using for years. This is getting there but I'm not totally happy with it yet.
Thoughts and opinions appreciated as always.
i've never liked the escape pod greebles. my 2cp.
