    I just know that one line. :shiner: The last time I saw that movie, I was very young.

    I see it about ten times every Christmas, on whatever channel it is that runs the marathon.

    Anyway, I added upper and lower hanger/cargo doors (that gave me a headache) and a few details to the engine.

    I enjoyed making the others, but this one has been like pulling teeth. Maybe I'll try again later.

    More engine work. The transparency settings are starting to confuse the video card already.

    Wow, I've been not checking updates on this like I should be. I love that one prior to this latest one (the one with the rings and stuff.) That's really sweet. This latest one looks good so far also. :D
  • rojrenrojren368 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,499Member
    Thank you.


    Added details, and rotated the drive gimbal. I thought about having the drive rotate to isolate the rest of the ship from whatever turbulence would exist in drivespace. (Or maybe to keep the sublight drive exhaust from scorching the paint on the translight drive.)

    Interesting design. :) The blue one came out great.
  • rojrenrojren368 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,499Member
    Added basic air locks, command deck and landing skid (which looks too small).

    This is the pilot's "chair".

    Added engines, and started reworking the landing skid.

    Nice details. :)
  • rojrenrojren368 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,499Member
    Added the tail gun and a few more details. Guns are hard. They all come out looking like table lamps.

    Interesting looking ship, the details really are starting to make it pop. Quite unique looking cannons you have there, I like em.
  • NXNNXN0 Posts: 0Member
    I think the guns you have there are a solid concept, however, you might want to move the clear area towards the base of the gun a bit. Make it look more like a pre-fire chamber.
  • rojrenrojren368 Louisville, Kentucky USAPosts: 1,499Member
    I kept the clear parts of the guns, and added more. I liked the idea of a pre-fire type thing, so I added more clear parts which help the whole assembly look less like a table lamp but more like a heavily armed wheel chair. I'm okay with that.

    Looking good. How about ending the weapon with a metallic collar just short of the muzzle? So you'd have a see through pre-fire chamber or whatever, and then a little more weapon casing and then finally the glass beam emitter type thing at the end. Might help you lose the lampshade factor you're worrying about.

    I like this ship. it's got a classic sci fi feel to it.

    One of those days. 'Screwed up most things I touched, and had to go back and fix them... then had to fix what the fix screwed up. Managed to add aft ports for drones and flares and stuff.
