    I'm really digging the details in the last image, looking forward to how it develops.

    Thanks. :)

    It should end up along the lines of these:

    link1 (cargo)
    link2 (convoy escort)

    Except a generation or two older.

    I was pretty much finished with this until I realized I didn't like it. it's very blah.

    So, I'm going back and tweaking things and hoping for a better result this time.

    Cool. To me, that looks fast and aggressive. I expect Klingons would approve.

    Thank you, bosun.

    I've been restoring my computer for the past several days. I did this before everything went kablooey.

    So I spent about two days after reloading AutoCAD trying to figure out why some of the commands weren't working. I got them working, but I can't figure out why they were working before, since they're all the same freaking files as before, and they currently don't working as they were written.

    Loving this concept!

    I hope you keep those colors and metallic sheen, as well.

    Thanks, MalScribble.

    Began working on the dome for the pool/green space area and added some life raft locations.

    I think I've gone as far as I'm going to with this one.
