    Thanks guys! It's been a long couple weeks. They're 6 weeks old today!

    Did a little bit of work on the Shangri-la. Remade the saucer with the non-destructive panel technique. Still a lot to do, but I think when I'm at a good place with it I want to do like a Constitution Refit revision or Belknap MKII or something. Use these nacelles and do some slightly different pylons and beef up the neck.

    Cool, I like the new ships from "Picard".
    Will there ever be an Enterprise G ?

    I probably won't make one.

    Congratulations on the arrival of your new kids! (I hope the shipping wasn't TOO much! LOL!)

    Beautiful work on the model as well! Nice!

    I cobbled together what I thought would be a good 1701-A...but zero computer skills:

    That could use the cranked nacelle supports, in case you think it worthy.

    That was Aridas Sophia's Balson secondary hull.

    Only the Albacore Ambassador also here gets the deep chest/teardrop right.

    Rebuilding the original with skills I've learned since the last time I built it.

    The neck and cobra head gave me the most trouble the last time I tried to build it. Seemed to work out OK this time. Last time I tried some convoluted boolean setup, but this time I used vertex and edge snapping to line up the neck/saucer sep line. Then nudged the nearest verts on the saucer to snap to the sep line and deleted what I didn't need. Then I filled in the cobra head and copied it to the saucer. So I think I have a good start.
    Also made the nacelles.
    Of course I didn't save any renders along the way.

    It's looking great so far. My hat's off to anyone who tackles this ship. It's easily one of the most beautiful designs ever, but it has to be a nightmare to build.

    Thanks!
    I can't get enough of it! I'm trying to make the shaders more accurate color-wise.
    Still need to do the marking lights, interior lights, and various hull graphics.
    I wanted to redo it to match the standard of my Lexington.

    She's looking beautiful. I take it everything is modeled? I know you like to do it that way. :)

    Yep. The only thing that isn't modeled is the grille on the inboard nacelle detail and the pylon vents which is a voronoi node to make a grid of circles.

    I think this one is pretty much done.

    I like the depth of the impulse engines. Also, clever use of a voroni texture for the grills!

    Yeah, really. Some of us are dumb enough to model the things. :lol:

    I'll get a closeup view of it when power comes back on. Big thunderstorm went through. 🤣

    power came back shortly after my previous post, but babies take first priority!

    here's a eevee screenshot of the grille in action. My laptop isn't up to doing anything with cycles, and I'm on the couch with the babies while mama sleeps, so firing up my desktop isn't an option. Also, the grille shader setup.
