Looking for C&C on this. I was first inspired to create this model a few years ago when I saw the design posted in Foundation 3D. The image of my model includes an over-lay of a D7 for size comparison. Here is my take on the design-
This is the original model that was posted on F3d. The artist is Robert J Wilson? The last name is hard to read.
I also borrowed some design queues from John Eaves and MadKoiFish;
I believe that the F3d design was inspired by the original concept model for the 'Undiscovered Country'-
My intension is to 3D print this as a one-off build. I plan on lighting it and adding a ton more surface detailing such as the triangular hull plating, etc. For now I plan on 1:1000 scale, making my model 15.5" long. I had considered 1:350, but the ship would be 44" long! I am using the free version of Fusion 360.
I wanted a more aggressive look to the bow, so I added 'castle-like' details and some Bat'eth inspired elements. I did not like the 'pod-like' warp engines of the F3D model, so I went with something of a more Klingon feel. I added additional disruptors/torpedo tubes to the primary hull. I also went with larger windows. My windows are more like large observation or bay windows than 'portholes'. I stayed away from round windows so the model would not be dated-looking. The little red pillars represent Klingon crew. My model;
