3DBSG Colonial Fleet

edited August 10 in Work in Progress #1
Dont know how far I'll get, but came along a ton of reference photos for the original BSG colonial fleet as well as hi rez zoic renders from the remake. I'll be focused on the fleet. And there is a lot of crossover with the remake as well, so I'll be focused on trying to get those ships made. There's also a bit of wiggle room as to which ships are which between the 2 fleets. We'll see what happens!

First up is the Rising Star and some flat top tug.

This image is mostly a test using UDIMs for the first time. I textured with Painter. In the end though I will be modeling the many panels.

    The Rising Star and the Pan-Galactic liner are my top favorite ragtag fleet ships.

    A lot of my ref comes from this site. They've done a great job cataloguing https://www.byyourcommand.net/cylongallery/index.php?cat=39

    Will be following this as well. I did a few of the Rag-Tag Fleet as physical models, as well as the Galactica as a master pattern for client as a kit. Ultimately, Mobeus Models used my master as a basis for their kit.
    Lots of kit-bashing for the original filming models!!

    Over at modelermagic.com (which is back up and updated again) David Rutherford made a physical model as seen in the March 2, 2020 entry.

    99% done modeling this guy! Just a few more random greebles to make, but thought i'd start the texture process. Mostly procedural right now...pretty happy with it!

    Did some texturing in Painter of the large fuselage areas and platform. I think a few more greebles and the top super structure need some texture, then it'll be good! sls1986zw6dd.jpg

    To the untrained eye not TOO different from before, but I finished up the texturing in the model. My first experience with UDIMs were are so great to have! Most of the large structures are unwrapped and painted in Substance Painter, while the 1,000 greeble parts are mostly procedural dirt and triplanar mapped. Maybe the next ship I'll be able to do in 1 material! :-D

    Next up trying to finish the Rising Star, which I got burned out on. It's the opposite of the above ship, mostly all smooth panels, it's been a real slog to model all the panels, but i think it looks pretty great! Looking forward to doing the rear engine greebles and windows, something a bit easier.

    Ok...been super busy but I haven't forgotten! I've been trying to finish up the back in fits and spurts. I think I finally did it, added a few of my own greebles from my Rodger Young model too (so useful!) But tried to stay true to the filming model. Pretty happy! Just a few little things left to do around the ship before I texture..

    This is all SPECTACULAR work! You are also doing one of the things I've always wanted to do, make all the ships in the Battlestar Galactica fleet. Well done!
