Been a while since I posted anything at all. First I moved then I started a new job then got married, etc...
So here is a Patrol Cruiser I am working on as I try to regain all the skills I have lost over the last year.:lol:

    Hey there CB, good to see you back man. Congrats on the wedding... or comiserations, depending on how far in the future you read this. :D

    Good to see you back and though you say you're rusty, don't forget your first model here was a big flat brick, so this is a pretty cool and detailed start! Keep the updates comin. :)

    Well, I turned my computer on around 10:00 hrs today and one of my 24 inch 1080p wide screen monitors went tits up. Dead as a door nail :o:(

    Luckily Bruce was able to leave his parental duties (IE leave the kids with his wife) and help me put up my big monitor. ;):D

    So now I have just one 24 inch monitor and one wall mounted 47 inch 1080p monitor :D

    Wife is in the pic just for scale.

    But now I have to replace the big monitor with a new TV the same size because I am stuck with the old 27 inch wide screen now for TV and BlueRay:argh:

    very.... i only have a tiny laptop screen to use here...so to see that.... very envious here
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    Maybe only a lap top screen but it's what you can do with it! I have most of the tools but very little of the talent yet. But I'm working on it :)
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    Okay, so I'm back and have not forgotten the Patrol Ship, however I have always wanted to do a Star Trek ship like those that you can find in the Starfleet Museum. They are pretty much the ones I like the most. So here, for the first time ever is my stumbling attempt at doing a Bison Variant. More than that though, this is the first time I have tried to do anything in an established style.

    At least with that huge 24'' monitor, you can goof around as if you had an MSD-screen, style wall-display (the first image reminded me to it, with the B5-like ship)...

    Beautiful wife. Where's she from? I've a hunch, let's see if I'm right.
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    She's from the Philippines :)
    http://digitaldownunder.net/gallery/showphoto.php/photo/6596 is where you can find the picture I had on the big monitor. The person who made it goes by the moniker of "wblack".

    I like this ship, very nice, is there more to come from this?!
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    Hi Robert,
    Yes there will be more to come with the Patrol Ship. RL likes to take me away from things I like way to often but I should be back to doing some more soon.

    PS: I also get bored easily so I have to have multiple projects going on at any one time. Once I get bored with whatever I am doing, I go back to the previous stuff :)

    Great design C-Bear!..I have some suggestions:

    It looks a bit retro..we're you going for that? If not, I'd loose two of the gun emplacements on the top. Then put one each on the sides just aft of the bow. This would greatly improve your fireing arcs and would improve the look as well. The problem with a "wet navy warship" type look is the entire bottom half of the ship is left undefended by the main battery, a little impractical for a starship.

    And get those edges rounded off. That will improve the model ten fold. LOVE the wings markings on the bow BTW!
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    Kind of retro but not really the surface navy thing. I don't want it to look quite like that so I have taken your suggestions and started to work with them. I have all ready moved the two front double gun turrets and I like them where they are now. I am also starting to get rid of some of the sharp edges but with SU it will not be easy to get rid of some of them.
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    Okay, here are some pics with the moved turrets.

    The model looks great! Much better with the turrets on the sides too..

    As far as rounding of edges, it's a little tricky, but easier then you might think..I just created a tutorial for the technique HERE.

    I have been working on the Patrol Ship but got bored and just tried something else.

    Interesting design.... looks like a seaboat, if the struts on the wings went lower
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    A little more. Added guns.

    Oh, no! It's... the blob!
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    Half way through making "The Blob" I realized that it looked like something Fred Gambino would have done back in the 70's :lol:
