Star Trek: USS Enterprise 1701-D

Started on my first Next Generation ship, so why not tackle the one I've always wanted to tweak the most, the Enterprise. For whatever reason, this ship just has never sat well with me (no offense meant to those that love her). I don't know what in particular I didn't like, but I'm going to try and build a version that I find more palatable. So here's a start...

Star Wars: Tormentor Class Imperial Battlecruiser Update III

A few more bits here and there and even though I said I wouldn't do it, I started paneling, but no pics of that just yet. A better update next week (hopefully). Also, I've reworked the superstructure and the ventral hangar structure...

Star Trek: USS Excalibur Update IV

Worked a little on the impulse engines. At first, I thought about using one of Andrew Probert's discarded impulse engine designs from the refit from TMP, but as I was working I decided just to take what was done for TMP and dial it back a little so it looks like it's on its way to being the system we see in TMP but not quite there yet. I also tinkered with the warp engine grills, halved the number so they show up and aren't just an interference pattern in the renderings.

Star Wars: Tormentor Class Imperial Battlecruiser Update II

Greebling is still ongoing, it's really just plodding along but I'm almost halfway down the first trench there. I've made some changes to the hull, to help break up some of the plain expanse in the back (also had some bad angles that needed fixing). I'm really wanting to dive right into paneling but if I keep letting myself get distracted, the greebling is just going to take even longer. The big guns are in place now though. But anyway, here's some updated pics...

Star Trek: USS Bold Fury Deck Plans

Did a little more work on this, expanded the hangar a little since the shuttle was just barely fitting before... still getting the hang of inkscape...

Old GE Site Pics

Just added a page full of pics from the old version of the site, check out the page to your right there...

Star Trek: USS Excalibur Update III

Changed a bunch of stuff. What I intended to to was cut out some windows but one thing led to another and I never got to windows. But I did rebuild the bridge superstructure to make look like it was being rebuilt. Also scattered around some open spots on the upper side of the primary hull. Changed the main sensor/deflector dish to look more on the road to TMP version. Also rebuilt the hangar doors and worked on the hull around that area. And now Star Wars calls, probably work on some of that for the next post. Anyway, here's pics...

Star Wars: Tormentor Class Imperial Battlecruiser Update

Starting in on the greebling along the trench. I'm trying to make each greeble individually and not just copy and paste the same 5 or 6 that was my previous effort. So this is taking much longer, lol. The guns are just there as placeholders while I figure out their final placement.
