Greetings All!
Looking for C&C on this. I was first inspired to create this model a few years ago when I saw the design posted in Foundation 3D. The image of my model includes and over-lay of a D7 for size comparison. Here is my take on the design-

This is the original model that was posted on F3d. The artist is Robert J Wilson? The last name is hard to read.

I also borrowed some design queues from John Eaves and MadKoiFish;

I believe that the F3d design was inspired by the original concept model for the 'Undiscovered Country'-

My intension is to 3D print this as a one-off build. I plan on lighting it and adding a ton more surface detailing such as the triangular hull plating, etc. For now I plan on 1:1000 scale, making my model 15.5" long. I had considered 1:350, but the ship would be 44" long! I am using the free version of Fusion 360.
I wanted a more aggressive look to the bow, so I added 'castle-like' details and some Bat'eth inspired elements. I did not like the 'pod-like' warp engines of the F3D model, so I went with something of a more Klingon feel. I added additional disruptors/torpedo tubes to the primary hull. I also went with larger windows. My windows are more like large observation or bay windows than 'portholes'. I stayed away from round windows so the model would not be dated-looking. The little red pillars represent Klingon crew. My model;

    I'd say his last name is Williams.

    Looks really good, but the tail-end looks very (Stargate) Asgardian. And the side view looks a bit too... rectangular. It needs some more depth and curves.

    His name is Robert J. Wilson. He was a member here too: http://3dscifi.com/3dscifi.com/eric/index.php, but I don´t hear news from him since a long time....
    His original thread still lives at https://www.trekbbs.com/threads/my-version-of-kronos-1-study-model.250342/page-3. The last update is dated from 2019.
    And here it goes the artist´s personal blog: https://xfozzboute.wordpress.com/

    Your wip and mix of concepts looks interesting. Keep posting updates. ;)

    Thanks for the info.
    I should have mentioned that the open areas, where you can see the interior walls, will be closed off.

    I had to look up the Asgard ships, but I see what you mean. I do like the 'sail-like' element of the towers. How do you suggest I keep them but change them, maybe shorter?
    As far as the side view, I'm thinking it is the warp engines that make it too rectangular. I could lengthen the top surface to be longer than the bottom. That would angle the front & back of the engines from a side view. ??? Something to try out.
    Thanks much!

    I phrased the Asgard bit badly. I meant it as an observation, not necessarily a thing to change. Lots of things look like lots of other things.

    This is the first time I'm seeing that Undiscovered Country test model, what an interesting piece. I like where you're taking it!

    I like your take on it but, and this isn't a complaint on your design but on the test model, the two neck spines just seem way too thin for a Klingon ship. That's just me. I LOVE what you're doing with this though.
