Take your time polishing the Grandeur, Vektor. Slow and steady wins the modelling race.

Starting to add internal details and some colorizing:
Thank you for sharing
That is looking fantastic. Can't wait to see the final shot!
Such a epic WIP
That scaffolding (paintover, right?) looks great! I assume you'll eventually match the scaffolding's shadow to the render, because it looks too dark and mismatched right now.
The scaffolding and its shadows are still very rough. I'm not even 100% sure I'm going to keep it, I'm just experimenting with some different ideas. Since they're not using a drydock, I figured something like a scaffolding system attached directly to the ship might make sense.
A little more progress:
Very awesome looking so far
"Captain, the ship is being taken over by the Reorg."
"The what or who, now?"
"Apparently, they're like the borg, but orange. And they love to change things."
"Very funny, Perry."
Looks great, just one little suggestion, maybe have a workbee or shuttle keep an eye/tractor beam on that free floating nacelle?
As for the scaffolding, sounds quite plausible to use something like that when not being in drydock.
Can't wait to see an "M.S.D." for the Grandeur's personalized (Blackfoot-Class) escort / special ops vessel.
Wow, that scaffolding is looking great.
I haven't seen anything like it before, stuck on a Trek ship, but I bet there are fixing to be a whole bunch of images featuring the same kind of thing.
You're from the South, right? *checks MadMan1701A's location* Yup!
Won't be installed until Tuesday.
