Now, to answer that pesky question- "Why does the ship look like a Romulan BOP?" :

More coming folks, stay tuned. And please visit the site for more info! :)

I really like that spacedock scene. Do you have any more pictures of the shuttle?

Thanks! And I do have the "orthographic" view for the shuttle:

Image

Believe it or not: to make the shuttle as seen in the pic, I combined the side and back view images from the ortho to create it. But eventually, I want to do a model of the shuttle itself.

Speaking of shuttlecraft, I designed out the main shuttlebay, based on the awesome illustration John Eaves did:

Image

I used his ideas, but did this pic up from scratch; I don't want anyone to think I'm trying to rip his work off! A link to his original (which is WORLDS better than all of my art combined!!):

Hm....
WOW! :o :shock:
Your Uss Alpha Centauri, looks very much like my Uss Warhawk that I designed back in 2011. :lol:

I started out with this.

But it wasn't exactly what I wanted, so I modified it to this.

And I also designed a patch for it.

The finished design was this..

A mix of a Miranda Class with a Peregrin class (wich is a John Payne design).

I am working on something very alike but for the pre-TOS era. It will be my very first scratch project.

:)

To tell the truth I am not surprised that such design be so popular because it is the easiest one to match the starfleet style: pick a saucer, put a nacelle on each side and you are done! At least this is what came to my mind when I had the idea of build such similar model!

:lol:

Nice! I can see the resemblance between the two. Coincidentally, the Alpha Centauri was also designed circa 2011 (it's first design incarnation premiered on Hobby Talk).

There is this one, that was taken directly from my design. lol :

It was built after I posted (mine) what I was building at the time.
And at that time, I did research all over the net, looking for anything close to what I was building so as not to be charged with plagiarism when I finally show the finished ship. And there wasn't any ship like that around. After... I saw a few people building that design. Well, "after" is history. I just left the build on the side... Maybe one day I'll finish her.
