Constitution Class Refit

    One idea could be to raise the whole bridge superstructure somewhat between the two catamarans, kinda like what Paul Frenczli did with his redesigned NX-01.
    Lowering the catamarans position could also help in making it look more inspired by the Akira than as a simple kitbash.

    Yeah, I did a bunch of adjustments to the entire ship, I'll post in another thread later. For now, here's yet another side project, though this one does tie in to the Constitution. I started working on the corridors ;)


    Obviously still missing a few details, and I have to do all the variations. The idea is to have a kit so I can quickly put corridors together. Of course, they won't really be seen from outside, but they are fun to do :tongue:

    Few renders of the ship of a few details I haven't shown yet. It was also brought to my attention that there are colored nav lights for port and starboard. So last render shows that.

    I'm starting to suspect that you work for ILM by demonstrating skills this amazing.

    As a huge fan of ILM (I think they are still the top VFX studio), that makes me very happy, heh :3

    Thanks folks! No real updates on this project. In theory I should be redoing a few details on the shuttle bay area, but I'm having trouble doing that without working on the interior. So I think I'll give the project a small pause, do some renders of the ship and start phase 2 which is working on the structural frame and window interiors which will include the entire shuttle bay and cargo area. Stay tuned ;)

    Still the best looking Enterprise, in my opinion. Good job Viper!
    More of an "Absolute Member", to be fair...

    The refit Enterprise has to be my most favorite Enterprise... Just beautiful.

    Among other things, great surfacing.

    This Enterprise is outstanding!

    Thanks for all the compliments guys! I've been on a little bit of a break lately as I was on a three month marathon working on all these projects. I'm trying to come up with a cool idea for a final render to show her finished, but everything I think about requires a ton of assets to be done, heh. Either way, I'll try to have a few high resolution images by the end of the week :)

    Utterly Stunning.... Making me think about getting back into modeling again, and going back to my old Connie model i never finished...

    *goes back under his rock

    great work viper, She looks amazing. ScifiEric did some really beautiful shots of his TOS Connie with just a simple planet background. He recreated some of the orbiting shots from the show. Maybe you could try something like that?
