3DFederation Class Dreadnought
<!––NOFDP (no IndexPhotos) 2856 ––>
I decided to warm up on this before trying my hand at my own TMP era dreadnought. So far, I have discovered that paneling a saucer is a royal pain in the hind quarters.

Klingons watch your back
Yeah, paneling can be tricky. Good work so far.
Have you already decided what name your ship will carry?
On the other hand, there's a part of my brain going "Neat!" And I can't wait to start working on my own Dreadnought.
Great job. I love it.
A STTMP design with nacelles ending in a mass of antenna gives it a high tech look.
Nice shuttles to go with it perhaps:
the third ncalle is a power naccelle to help power the additional weapons, and as stated above it speeds the ships acceleration to warp speeds.
and yes i still think the shuttle bay in the front isn't good, nor is that extra deflector dish on the tail, unless the ship is meant to fly in reverse at high speeds.
I see, that you place the torpedo launcher on the underside, do you also have one on the upper side?
To put it another way it isn't your problem. It is FJ's. He is at fault for not providing a large picture from which to draw upon.
By the way I have a disagreement with him in one regard, with regards to this ship. The deflectors. If the 16 meter dish is the primary deflector on the Constitution class, then it is deffinately good for up to warp six. That is, it will keep 'you' safe at warp. But what do the search sensors and navigational deflectors on the bow of the primary hull have to do? The are the back up/additional safety margin. So what about those five meter dishes? The Dreadnought moves at warp eight, and requires a better system. So one of them is for use at speeds above warp six.
