    I don't know, you wait around for ages, and then three Constellation-class ships come along together.

    Here we go with the start of mine, then. Tackling the saucer first of all. I have found the available plans to be fairly poor, so I pretty much discarded them. I have scaled things using photos, all relative to the TMP Enterprise saucer which is nestled in the middle.

    There will be more!

    Nice.

    Do you work by eyeballing pictures, or do you use plans?

    Nice start. Everything looks nice and smooth so far.

    Not only are 3 of us doing these, but we all use different applications. That really makes it interesting.

    What would be even more interesting would be someone trying to work out the obvious kit-bashing gnarls in the Constellation's design. I never really bought that the Constellation was from the same era as the Enterprise refit, Excelsior, Miranda, and Oberth... it looks like an aftermarket federation ship cobbled together by some rakish band of smugglers and pirates to fool rim world yokels into believing they're a Federation ship so they can scam them out of valuables.

    Oops, I accidentally wrote the premise to a better Star Trek series than the last two to air.

    You got to love this place. someone builds a ship and then everyone jumps on the band wagon. Remind me of the days everyone was doing the big G.
    never the less looks like you are off to a great job.

    I agree with Chris, with each of you doing it in a different app, it should be intresting to see how it turns out.
    Now we just need someone to do it in Blender.

    If by that you mean rework the design to eliminate the glaring clunky bits, I'm in full agreement - I always felt that while greebling to the extent seen on the Reliant was acceptable, this one took it a step too far. I won't bother with a foot-long list of things I'd like to change though - this is hardly the place for it....

    Martoctivus, awesome work as usual. The question is, with Tobias seemingly having gone quiet on updates, who will reach the finish line first?

    He's not just a moron. He's the product of the greatest minds of a generation, working together with the express purpose of building the dumbest moron who ever lived.

    And you just put him in charge of the entire nation.
