Interesting, really cool aproach to the design, definitevely looking forward to see how it evolve!

Certainly a different take on it, all corners instead of curves.
A positively bold design!
That's it! I never knew how to properly name that...so simpleOriginally Posted by JWWRight
Thanks guys, I always think my re-designs will piss off many purists... which I am one, too. The original Jeffries design was and still is a real milestone in starship design.
I wanted to see what a Connie would look like with a more "building -like" use of interior space... While drawing on some design aspects from the TMP re-fit, and even the JJ-prise, which I'm not a big fan of...
This is just a design experiment, no cause for alarm! My way of clearing my mental palate... so I can get back the my Eagle with fresh eyes.
Thumbnails don't do this justice. I was all ready to open up with scathing criticisms and a few personal insults, but when I saw the larger view, I was blown away by how surprisingly cool this is.
You've done something special here, so go about texturing and color choice like your life depends on it, because if you really do this right, you're up there with Probert, Eaves, and Drexler in my book.
What are we going to do with them, Mr. Flibble?
Oh, we can't possibly do that...who would clear up the mess? >D
Ha ha! Thanks! I'm lucky Mr Flibble is pleased, I've seen what happens when he becomes cross...
Well, those guys are legends, my goal is to approach their quality, but I'm not there yet. Very high praise and I'm grateful!
A couple of scale tests, this will help my placement of portholes later and assist my level of detail as I model the fiddly bits...
Added a control/observation deck for the shuttle bay. You cant really see the figures in the thumbnails...
I would suggest an octagonal(8) or nonagonal(9) sided saucer section. what you have in the first thumbnails looks a bit off. Just my opinion.
