The first one I chose to do was the 4 nacelle design. The others will follow at some point.

That's really quite excellent. Reminds me of Foundation Imaging's work for B5, must be the lighting or something.

Someone should point this out to Krenim, maybe it's the evil crew of the evil Excelsior lost in the B5 universe. 8)

Lol, that's an intriguing idea! Anyway cheers, I used quite hard lighting for this, sometimes it works well, depending on the object, camera angle, backdrop etc.. But in a way you're right, B5 did have quite dark moody lighting.

Nice!

OK, is it possible to get a little glow on the nacelle grills? - i.e. hitting the near bulkheads surrounding the grills.

The Saucer - can it have a bit more... roughness?? I.e. like the nacelles and pylons!?!

This is one bizarre ship... It looks from the front... as if it is going to 'fall over'! [Smile]

Whoever first suggested that starships resembled phallic simbols ought to sign up for a lobotomy.

If your dick looks like a starship - I'd got to the doctor... especially the Defiant - you could have slept on it! ;o)

Cheers all, I just got back from Spain so haven't had a chance to respond to anything for more than a week.

Andrew. I was following the available pictures of the study model. It's more or less accurate. I'm not sure what you mean about a 'rough saucer'. Do you mean more panelling?

Bottom view, sure at some point. It's not finished down there just yet, simply because there are no known model photos of the actual model, so I've held back going into too much detail as yet.

There is a shuttle bay present, but there's nothing 'in there'.

Nim, I ain't no commie geyser, alright!! No, in all seriousness, I expect the torp bays are mounted somewhere below the saucer. I haven't modelled anything in that area yet.
