    Yep, going to give the BoP a similar treatment to my Connie. The nacelles are just a placeholder and will be changing.

    Had a burst of inspiration on the bussards. Any thoughts?

    I like it. It helps make the design distinct from Federation and Klingon designs, which was difficult for the original modelers to do with such a limited budget.

    Nice work, an improvement compared to the first nacelle design.

    Thanks all. Honestly, I've hit a bit of a roadblock on this one - it's such a simple design that there's not much to play with. Or maybe I'm just procrastinating because I hate uv mapping ;)

    The first nacelle was a low poly A2 TMP era nacelle I was using as a placeholder.
    Basic hull mapping done. Just wish I'd built the hull around the birdie instead of now trying to figure out how to make the bird fit the hull :confused:

    Looking good, if I may make a suggestion, try to reduce the size of the bird, it looks a bit to large on the ship.

    Yes, I'm still playing with sizes - I was trying to determine the right overlay settings.
    However, I think that I'm going to have to draw my own, the wings just stretch too far forward o_O

    Anywho, more pretties from Jetfreak. I don't think I need say anything more than that.

    So whilst the laptop has been unavailable I've been dabbling with another refit.

    Birdie has been remodeled plus a few other texture changes I've been experimenting with.
    Slower progress than I'd have liked, I had to remember how to change the photoshop preferences again.

    Falling in love with that BOP mate. Looks like a Phase 2, X-tech version of the TOS BOP. :D

    It is indeed a lovely ship.
    :y

    The way the pylons are shaped and angle down a pit makes it look like one of the engineers on the project may have been Klingon.
