    Okay, I had my doubts from the earlier renders, but that last one won me over.

    Very pretty.

    Looking awesome so far! I still think it's coming across as small though, gotta get all that detail in there. You should talk to Fig, he knows people.

    I completely agree the scale is too small.

    that's odd. I probably shouldn't be able to bump a thread this old.

    I'm guessing this is based on the new show?

    That is fantastic. (Most images in posts are html lines.)

    That is one of The Best Baseship Models(reimagined) I have seen.
    (Am from TOS era, but times change)

    Nice Job.

    Will you release this model?

    I have noticed it seems at Scifi 3d and SciFi meshes some uploads have disappeared.
    One in particular I used to have was the Scorpia Shipyards, but it is no longer around and lost the model somehow.








    I am currently making a BSG Fan film, still in wip phase,
    Check out current video here:

    I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with it right now. I had considered releasing it publicly, but after having handed it off to about dozen or so people, some 3 or 4 months ago .. I haven't seen a single render or animation use it (other than my own***). So I'm less inclined to go through the trouble of releasing it at this point.

    This is just about all it's been used for so far, and I hadn't really even finished it at the time***

    Well, I think it certainly deserves a spot on the Scifi3d board, Foundation3d and SciFi meshes also.



    I would most definitely play with it and very much put it in my BSG vids.
    And liked that clip :D


    hey, while I am here, check this out.... it is what I am currently trying to create....


    Please check Quality of Video
