3DBlast from the past - Blake's 7

Been a while since I last posted anything on here. Hopefully I wont be chased off by the flaming pitch-fork brigade (but you never know, lol).

Anyway – looking back at the first mesh I ever built, the Liberator from Blake’s 7, which was ported into Star Trek Bridge Commander (and is still an available mod);

I decided it was time to make a more detailed version;

CC welcome. Updates as and when.

    More work done - eng sphere has been modelled and built and the ram vents have been built. Added some panels to break up the symmetry;

    Been looking at pics of the studio model, as well as the plans released by Horizon and realised I'd made a mistake on the solar panels - there should be 10 per unit, not 8 as I originally made. Have corrected the error. The centre hull is pretty much done aside from a few mesh errors that I'll fix - and then onto the pylons and the blasters!

    Centre Hull is done, might tweak a few things, but I'm happy with it;

    One finished Blaster...

    And with some moving around and using the array system...

    Pretty much done with the Liberator... But what is the Liberator on it's own? I think a Federation ship or two is in order... Another System ship, and maybe a certain cargo vessel...

    C&C welcome, more on the way

    The mighty System Pursuit/Attack Ship - only seen in one episode, but two of these were able to cripple the Liberator. Built by the same race that built the DSV2 aka Liberator;

    Take it as read that that ship is finished for the mo. It was easier to do. But ideal hands and all that - have started another;

    Not happy with the hull on this, may need to study the blueprints a bit more. But it's a start. C&C is welcome as always. More soon.

    Thank you - this is a labour of love. The very first thing I created in 3DS Max all those years ago was the Liberator. But when my PC caught fire I lost that mesh. So this has been a chance to rebuild what was lost.

    Well, yes, i know I made a mistake on where the colour stripe goes on the Scorpio. A fix is on the way. Have re-detailed a few areas and made a start on the landing legs;

    I've decided to junk the Scorpio and rebuild it. The proportions are off, and the mesh is doing some weird things on the lower half.

    If at first (and second) you don't get it right, use the darn blueprints and do it again!

    These all look excellent! I'm remembering a couple cool renders and a reimagining of the Liberator on here years ago, glad to see the old massive microphone getting some more love on the forum.

    Can't wait to see what you do with these... I can imagine a few upgrades with textures, greebles... something to push them into the realm of HD.

    Yes, I remember the thread about the re-imaged ships. Awesome work.

    For my part I am just trying to build the ships as they were. I may try my hand at my own interpretations - or modern takes on them. But at the moment I have been struggling to get Scorpio right. Build three seems to be right. But more on that later.

    Thank you.

    Finally - the Scorpio is done. I've left the hatch panel open as it helps with understanding the scale of this ship - in that it's small! Enjoy :-)
