A decade of this? Well least in paper 2012 being the first. lol
Anyhow a link to the calendar and now the sample images. (link is for US amazon, dunno where or who else sells it)
Some close up teasers.
Work bees position a new injection housing.
Mess leftover by a halfassed offloading of Shuttle #8
Crewman inspects the emergency flush valves in the struts, while a workbee does a hull inspection in the background.
There are a few other extras but I doubt they show in print. such as people in windows and other trek tropes.
And the full image.

All done in 3dsmax 2019, conversion to v-ray then composite done in Clip Studio Paint.
Each day we draw closer to the end.

    Very nice. I've always liked the Balmung. :)

    You've had a pic in every one of these for a decade? Only two more and you'll have enough for a solo calendar :p

    Almost I think, short one due to that contest thing. Had considered collecting and doing a pdf freebie or something at one time and a few here and at I think f3d wanted to do one but nothing came of it.

    And yeah, I think the bal atm is my fave too just came together really well and is that size that is more manageable than the larger ships where you sorta run into burn out for the LOD I want to add to the ships. >_> Still want to do more TMP era stuff as it is still my favorite but is the one area I am weak in modeling for.

    my only nitpick is why is the shuttle that's clearly powered off and being unloaded still running with it's engines on? ;)

    It is called standby mode. Fully powered up or thrusting they would be much brighter.
