Thumbnail update 31/03/20


So, with the release of 2.8 I’ve been getting back into Blender and have been on and off very slowly working on this model when I have a few minutes for the last 6 months. Thought I’d finally post something if nothing else to give me the motivation to get this over the line.
It’s not intended to be a screen accurate model instead it’s my interpretation based it off the original draft sketches by Steve Berg that I found on B5scrolls ( a site I highly recommend for all things B5). As such I’m calling this the SA-32B ‘Tsunami’ Thunderbolt variant.


Eventually once this is done I might move on and give the Omega model I started some love....

    Rock on! I was just thinking "Man, I wonder why so few people are doing modern updates/takes on B5 designs..."

    Good timing :grin:

    If you're interested I found this while looking for references, someone got hold of the original files and re-rendered them in HD! Maybe its my nostalgia googles but I still think B5 has some some of the best cinematography when it comes to space scenes...

    Small Update, as it's meant to work in atmosphere I'm looking into aerospike engines as inspiration .


    Just another view because why not.


    I was digging around my old folders I came arcoss a Warlock model I started (but didn't finish ) back in 2010, although it never really got the screen time it deserved I've always liked this ship

    Been a while since the last update, I decided to completely rebuild the base mesh as I wanted to focus on my mesh flow but ended up getting a little obsessed. I still have to merge the lower wings and engines so you'll notice some bad topography round those area's. As a result it may look like a step backwards but I used this time to redesigned certain aspects of the design such as the main cockpit and engine 'inlets'. I'm trying to update the design without losing that 'B5' feel (whatever that means...)




    Did take a break to start on the main cannon though

    That main Cannon is looking great!

    Definitely could be a perfect design for a B5 re-boot.
