    You know Backstep, the best artiest who ever lived were without formal training!
    Keep that positive thinking and who knows who might discover you!

    And that goes for any other artiset out there in SCIFI - MESH there's nothing but pure talent on here and it's a real pleasure to be allowed to view them!

    Keep up good work Backstep!

    I think in order to even be considered, I'd have to go to school, because right now I have no formal training, or informal for that matter, in any of the main CG apps that fx houses use . . .
    plus I'm a slow modeler and easily distracted :shiner:
    so I'm happy just dabbling around in my spare time

    I appreciate the compliments, guys. :D


    I'm in the same boat too so you're not alone :thumb:

    Awesome design thus far!

    Thanks! :thumb:

    I'm running out of ideas for details, so I think I'll have to look at some pics of the big G sometime . . .

    At first glance I thought you had called the ship the Noriega. Crazy I know.

    Great work so far Backstep. :thumb:

    Your work has been incredible so far backstep!
    I read your post on this ship and must ask this is a "defense picket" class ship correct?
    If so might I offer you this offering, I would have place both an electronic suite, as well as active counter measure placements to augment your ship.

    Electronic suite would allow the ship to function as a decoy defensive statues (redirect signal, ext.) and countermeasure to defend larger classes Battlestars!
    Anyway those are my offerings and I hope it offers no offense to you and your wonderful work so far.

    Great ship, backstept...

    dumb Q time... where do the people sit?
  • XRaiderV1.7XRaiderV1.7226 I have absolutely no ideaPosts: 1,074Member
    sit? what is this sit you speak of?

    is this a means to be off ones feet?

    just joking, couldnt resist being a bit of a wise guy, you did after all leave me a perfect opening.
  • fieldgunnerfieldgunner331 Posts: 0Member
    ^i guess i deserved that, heh....

    i meant to ask wheres the bridge?
  • backsteptbackstept2110 Posts: 932Member
    the CIC I think would be in the head part . . . in any case it's in there somewhere :D
    and it's probably not visible externally
  • XRaiderV1.7XRaiderV1.7226 I have absolutely no ideaPosts: 1,074Member
    its ok, I was kinda getting a kick out of that post any way. :devil:

    now that the fun part is out of the way, I got one question: wheres the bridge?
    :D

    edit:

    aw crud, ya killed my punchline.

    its cool. :cool:
  • DarkoneDarkone177 Posts: 258Member
    I agree with Raider!

    could be :D
    though with the relatively small number of turrets I don't think it could cover a large enough area to take out a larger number of fighters
    I guess it's a missile destroyer with limited AA ability

    hmm . . . I just got an idea for where to put some antennae and a long range cannon :D

    umm . . . okay
  • DarkoneDarkone177 Posts: 258Member
    I like it either way, what ever your choice is.
  • backsteptbackstept2110 Posts: 932Member
    here's the latest.
    I've added a dish and some domes and generally made the spine area a little more sleek
  • DarkoneDarkone177 Posts: 258Member
    Oh I like that DISH!
  • XRaiderV1.7XRaiderV1.7226 I have absolutely no ideaPosts: 1,074Member
    this is turning into one bad @$$ of a ship.
    I like it.
  • SanderleeSanderlee1 Posts: 0Member
    I like the dish's design ... but does it really fit the BSG universe design aesthetic?

    And while cool looking, I must admit that the Star Destroyer shield domes really don't fit.

    Otherwise, I love this little beastie (esp. with the exposed engine core that implies rapid, emergency production).

    Sanderlee.
  • backsteptbackstept2110 Posts: 932Member
    they're not star destroyer shield domes, they're DRADIS domes and I based them on real world radomes :D

    and it folds up
  • Ice-DragonIce-Dragon0 Posts: 0Member
    very nice I like the idea of the DRADIS domes very cool:thumb:
