This probably sounds like an incredibly basic question - I'm fairly new to 3D modelling - but I'm doing my first TNG era ship (I started with TOS ones, which, as you know, are mostly primitives with a bit of fun tweaking) and I cannot get the Engineering Hull of Galaxy Class down.
I've tried splines, I've tried cylinders, planes... the topology just messes up. What's everyone's methods for doing a hull like that?
I'm using Blender but any general help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks a lot!
