    Lovely. I hope you repost the Ingram and the other versions of it.

    Thank you :-)

    The only version of the Ingram I have left is the one I dressed for the Star Trek Lexington fan film group which was adapted specially for them. The variants are gone. A couple of other people have done the Ingram, and done a far better job of it than I did (far more accurate job of it) and I wouldn't want to tred on any toes. That's why when I came back to 3D work I built the "OIdfield Class" as my take on what the Excelsior could and should have been ( - Humm, does that sound a little arrogant?). So I have done that already - even built a shuttle or four to go with it ;-) Although I ran into a fanboi-ism which is why I called time on that project. I may come back to it, finish off the hanger bay and the arboretum.

    Hope that helps, more soon!

    Getting closer to the finish line on this one. Still heaps to do, but the major parts are pretty much done;

    I love some of the ships from DC comics.

    There was one cover where the Refit version of the Mirror Enterprise fired on the Excelsior. It seemed to have a wider saucer. Done by mistake, but an interesting look all the same. I hope you do that and some other refit era craft.

    I love the Surak here. It is what a science vessel should be.

    Thank you.

    The movie era is a fav of mine. I love the almost uniform look of the ships - something that has been lost in later iterations of Trek (IMOO). Back in the days of old, it was important for Starfleet ships to look like they belonged to the same fleet and had come out of the same yards.

    Looking back over the old WIP thread on Treknographics, my original inspiration was to build a rationalised Oberth Class - I stumbled across the image of the Clarke Class USS Surak and used it as a jumping off point. It's not biggie that the artists working on the comics at the time hadn't seen what an Oberth Class ship looked like, and were given a written description. Later issues corrected and showed the Surak as Oberth Class...

    Since I started the original a few things have happened in Trek - an on screen USS Clarke NCC-1661 - a Clarke Class in STO... So being mindful of all that, I'm calling this one the McCaffrey Class (still a sci-fi writer). But yes, I haven't built the "class" ship, but rather another USS Clarke. She's bigger than the original one I built last time, but I am going with that increase in size and making it work for her.

    I have been working on a shuttle idea for this USS Clarke -

    Yes, I have "updated" the TMP era shuttle... Do I need to duck yet?

    Their will be two shuttles - I haven't got names for them yet. I am either going to use "Arthur" and "Charles" or "Lys" and "Diaspar" - comments and thoughts are welcome, just keep name ideas connected to Arthur C Clarke.

    Anyways, enough waffle from me - enjoy, feel free to comment and more soon!

    Not sure I am sold on the design. I do have another - that with some minor tweaks - could be used;

    Thank you - I'm going to assume that you mean the TMP style shuttle, not the TFF style one? I'm going to do some more work on it. Will post images when done.

    I like the TMP revamp but I'm not used to seeing it with Nacelles like that so it feels off to me, but that's on me not you.

    Yeah, I'm having the same problem with it. But the more I play with it, the more I like it.

    Meh *shrug*

    I'm rebuilding the shuttle at the moment - renders tomorrow. Been busy with some building work on the house, but back to the project tomorrow :-)

    Here we go...

    The new one (on the right) has a curved hull, and is a little wider than the old one (which really is just a box);

    More views of the new (have yet to apply all the livery);

    The shuttle(s) are done and locked for the mo. So here is the Class M shuttle;

    To scale with the Class J shuttle I built a while back;

    Would Star Fleet have more than one class/type of shuttle in service? Of course they would. Both shuttles fill different roles.

    And now that is done, back to the main lady;

    Comments welcome - let me know what you think of the shuttle, more soon!

    That makes just more sense than the Oberth, which is really how I envision a PICARD era ship looking…a post-Excelsior design with no crew in the towfish type sensor pod underneath

    Fortunatly, this movie era ship of mine is bigger than an Oberth Class;
