    I also need to decide if I will stick to this registry or not. Follow the beta book timelines or forge on with only canon (film and tv up to nemesis/voy) If prior I probably should look at aligning this as a 82700+ if not 80700+ but then again I could fit it in and just ignore the original idea of this being a FTL testbed design. Could still follow the book canon and explain most were destroyed as part of the Borg incursions.

    That is literally my issue when I model. The little things no one will ever see. Glad i haven't gone full herd and modeled in the plumbing, wiring, whatever on my ships. Probably end up with projects betting out the Endless Pluto thread from days gone by LOL

    Decided everyone should be sick of the front underside so I have spent some time adjusting things on the nacelles and planning how to do assembly panels, EG how the nacelle can be pulled apart. Also moving some existing bits around.
    tsukuru-nx-0673.jpg
    REALLY REALLY tempted to uh delete these and build new ones that are less 2dimentional.

    Those nacelle are great the way they are, I don't think they're any more two-dimensional than any official starship's nacelles, not to mention the fact that they've got more detail than anything I've seen in Star Trek.

    Render I left going last night, not been feeling well all day and had to lie down when I got the chance so heh. Sucks as today was cool well in relation to the last week so I had hoped to mow my jungle. Just looking at it makes my eyes itch and nose burn.

    Yeah, it seems new and improved. :)
  • MadKoiFishMadKoiFish1171 West of the right nutPosts: 3,772Member
    Render of the whole thing. Merged up some panels and fixed a few things. I do need to yank off or change up the material I added outlining some of the panels as it makes them blend off at certain angles to the camera and light sources.
    tsukuru-nx-0684.jpg

    The render does make the markings on the struts stand out as not fitting so I might undo those and figure something else. EXP as the belly details seem to stand out more. This is something that kinda bugs me with the saucer as much of that is old work so it seems heavier handed vs all the new work.
    maybe I need a break from this.

    Aimlessly flailing about with this so I am gonna undo it all and likely wipe off some of the really old work on these as well.

    I just love the 'modernised' Federation detail you do, MKF. What is that piece, btw? Are they access doors for maintenance or something? Emergency venting ports? The paneling on that nacelle ans just fantastic.

    This ship is looking absolutely breathtaking. I love the paneling you did on the nacelles. Makes them look way more realistic.
  • MadKoiFishMadKoiFish1171 West of the right nutPosts: 3,772Member
    Started over. Least to the modeling of the detail parts.

    tsukuru-nx-0691.jpg

    I might just start new nacelles as a experiment to see if my gut dislike is because of the base shape.

    I think the shape is great. I wouldn't mess around with it too much. The subdued panelling looks even better.
  • MadKoiFishMadKoiFish1171 West of the right nutPosts: 3,772Member
    Threw out a few conventional designs so far and this is the most recent rough out. KIM the blue stuff is to show where I would place the glowy coil bits etc. Front end on these I think are a bit to heavy. The central bit is where the struts will mount but the rest is just bits leftover from other attempts. SO I might alter things from there.

    ugh these render times. . . . . . . . . . . screw it the current one rendering can wait.

    Either nacelle design looks good to me. Is the latest design supposed to be tightly-space quad nacelles?
  • MadKoiFishMadKoiFish1171 West of the right nutPosts: 3,772Member
    Yeah dual coil set up for whatever reason. Thinking these could be some experimental design. The ship is made to sort of attach anything as long as it side mounts.

    Mostly spent time tuning alignments and then working in details to break up the fat head look og the cowling. It is all subdiv still so I might alter it more. I have not decided what or if I will keep those gray vanes or not or fiddle with em some. Might pull them for something else as they really do not serve their original purpose. Tempted to hog out the area to create more negative space between the nacelles and act as some sort of plasma junction as it diverts to the uppers or lowers.
    tsukuru-nx-0699.jpg
    tsukuru-nx-0700.jpg

    Always have a laugh as these TNG nacelles always remind me of highlighter pens or early pc pens mostly ones to define points in cat or measuring out patterns.
