    The side/below angle is nice, though.

    I'm with evil_genius here. That is a nice angle. Front-low seems like it loses a lot of the perspective and scale of it. It's hard to tell what's going on.

    I think I'm done with this for now. Getting a bit bored.

    This is awesome and gives me a Derek Meddings vibe!

    It doesn't look like it needs anything else.

    I went back again and added an interior to this, and in the middle of doing that, about 1/4 of the ship vanished, and even after I 'fixed' things it still stayed a bit flaky.

    I guess I should say what this is. It's a (non-Starfleet) medical support ship for Federation colonies from a time before the Constitution class was commissioned. It's a slow, tough ship design that was used until there was nothing left to use. This version has undergone a refit since she was commissioned.

    It's named after one of the discoverers of the nature of DNA that was denied credit for that and other of her discoveries because she was a woman.

    Wow, i really love the functional yet in-keeping aesthetic to it, Rojren.

    The close up image of the windows with their interiors really gives it a grand sense of scale as well. I love it when folks go that extra mile, models always look smaller when its just white, bright windows. I also love the way you've connected the top decks to the main hull. It has one "look" to it from above, and a totally different look to it from the front and sides.
    I could well imagine that being a design in the show.

    I forgot about that Star Trek ship you did. Great design. I love stuff that gets away from the saucer and nacelles aesthetic, yet is still undeniably Federation.

    Thanks. I really appreciate the comments.

    I got some input on this one from the SFM Discord that kept me from just abandoning it when the design started going south - as the majority of my attempts at Star Trek designs have.

    The flat-top part, and the window bays were inspired by the robot grain ships from TAS and the ... watsit... the ship from the reworked 'Charlie X" episode. It ended up working better than any star trek ship I've done. The others always end up in the weeds somewhere.

    It's great that your fellow artists were able to keep you from abandoning it. That's what a great community can do for you. :)

    I'm revisiting an older Federation (non-Starfleet) design that didn't go as well as I hoped first time around. It's called Overture.

    Added hangar doors and a big access hatch.

    I went back and revised another older ship. This is the Bola de Berlim, named after pretty delicious looking deep fried confection.

    I'm not sure if I said what this was supposed to be. It's a test bed for different drive systems. It's a dumb idea. I think one test drive per ship would be more than enough, but this way I get to put a bunch of engines on a ship.

    The four smaller nacelles are a soliton wave rider drive. The the two-part deflector array is also the quantum slipstream drive... is that right? I'm hard of thinking at the moment.

    Nice collection of designs. I really like the unique cargo ship and the Franklin.

    This is one of those "I wonder what this would look like" things. It's a ship with one drive unit in front and a second at the back.

    Like a train with 2 engines?

    More like... uh... the front engine opens the path and the rear engine closes it behind. I'm thinking it's to cut turbulence.

    That is a really cool idea. Like the concept.

    Thanks. 😀

    Added a docking section and some storage tanks.

    I spent like two days getting the fuel tanks to look a certain way just to decide "well, that looks like crap". Then AutoCAD started throwing error codes that don't seem to really exist. Fun, fun, fun.

    Worked on the habitat section and the beginnings of a lander.

    Did a little bit to the lander and the dock. I need to redo the lighting. Something odd is going on.

    Yeah, something along those lines.

    Started reworking this ship "Gjedde". It's a convoy escort.

    Going for a mix of art deco (which I can't seem to help) and art nouveau.
