Star Wars: Prowler Personal Shuttle WIP

Revamping another of my old models from the old site. Here was the original description:
"The Prowler shuttles were conceived as a personal craft for a ship or base commander. However they have found an expanded role as a survey and reconnaissance craft. In their expanded configuration sensor packages are added on either side of the vertical stabilizer."

Based on a concept painting of the shuttle from the original series designed by Thomas Kellogg. A work in progress, this is just a test run, a more detailed version is in the works.

TrekBBS: May Art Challenge Entry

I don't usually enter contests but this one seemed interesting so I thought I'd give it a try. The challenge was to show the concept of freedom in the Star Trek universe. So here's what I came up with.

Star Trek: USS Edward Teller NX-27CLN

The textured version of my Planet of the Titans Enterprise model. Still a work in progress

Star Trek: Planet of the Titans

I've been working on this monster for years. This is based on the Ralph McQuarrie concept work for the movie that never was, Planet of the Titans. There's some good articles about the movie over at Forgotten Trek. This is about as far as I went with this model as a USS Enterprise version. I've continued working on it as the USS Edward Teller and currently I'm finishing texturing the big girl.

Star Wars: TIE Predator

I got a lot of positive feedback on this model when I first published it to the original site. Now that I've learned a bit more about 3D modeling, I decided to revamp the old model. Here's the old description...

"The Type 707 TIE Predator is a dedicated ground support fighter built specifically to operate in atmosphere. Although it can operate in space it is much slower than even the older 610B Stinger. In atmosphere speeds are comparable to most fighters, however, the fighters main purpose is to attack much slower moving ground targets,  not aerial combat. The bulk of these fighters are assigned to the Legions and fall under the control of the Imperial Army."

Battlestar Galactica: Galactica Redesign

Decided to try my hand at some Galactica work. As with all of my models, it's my take on the model and not a part for part re-creation. These are just the first sketches, lots more detail to add...

Star Trek: Ship Recognition Chart

Made a comparison chart of most of my Star Trek ships together, which makes one MASSIVE 3ds max file lol... got everything named and categorized with measurements. Everything had been built roughly to scale to begin with, except the Edward Teller, which I had to tweak to get it more correct in comparison to the others.
