Sweet, thanks for your support guys :D between all, that should more or less take care of the print costs :)

Dunno if I'll get time to do any tonight but will keep update :D Can't wait to see her finished now :)

Wonder if it'd look out of place in a 1400 fleet...

Loving the look of this!

In 1400 it'd be about 25" long and I dunno if the parts I've got planned would be too big to print lol.


The nacelles bugged me so I rebuilt them :)

Hopefully you'll like this bit of progress then :)


Started working on the bottom of the Saucer section, really liking the way it's coming:

Few more hours on her over the past few days, tarting up the top of the saucer to increase poly count in areas that look a little rough, but mainly on the bottom of the saucer to build up :)

Gonna add windows last lol!


Here's an update:

She's coming on well I think. Took a fair bit of creative copyright with this one as the game model is as smooth as an androids bottom and incredibly low detail. Have added some indents to the bottom to allow some windows and to break up the flatness a little. The panels have varied depths too so it's not flat as a pancake ha! Plus the phaser arrays break up the flatness quite well.

Lemme know what you think, as your constructive words are a great motivation.
