It's that time again! Starting with the concept:

From here I'm blocking out the shapes, so I can ensure that the overall proportions are good. It won't match the concept completely, since I'll be tweaking and adjusting it to look good in 3D

    I already know I am going to love this. I really like both the Galaxy Class and your particular design style.

    I'm excited for this one! Actually I'm being commissioned by someone who wants to in turn have a physical model of this design built. I'm curious what you anyone here thinks would be a good price to charge.

    I don't want to gouge the customer, but I don't want to undersell my work. This will be at a very high level of detail, and it will take a large amount of hours.

    I know full well the pain of underselling work. Early on I did a job that I should have charged AT LEAST 5x what I had considering how much work I needed to put into it.

    Check online to see what the average rates are and adjust accordingly. Some sites say $30/hr, others average it out to $50/hr USD. Some make more, others less. Freelance targets range an average of $300/day. Again, some more, others less.

    10 years ago I was charging $200 to $500 for small-scale, low- to medium-detail printables for hobbyists. However, there were several models that were lined up from one of my customers (14 in total) so the overall payment was much larger. Others just ordered one or two and called it a day.

    Today I get paid a lot more per model for company work.

    Also, realize that your skill is only one factor that someone would need to consider. Printing out the model can also bite into their budget. The larger the print, the more it'll cost.

    I've always like this one. Are you going for an AU, or Post-Dominion War model?

    Not too keen on how the back section of the neck leaves the saucer (the way the hulls flow together was always one of my favorite parts of Probert's design), but I usually love your work, so I'll definitely follow this with interest.
