    USS Innovator

    New ship 3d model sketch.

    You can view the model in the 3d viewer here:

    Heavily inspired Sovereign Class and MKF's current design. Maybe too similar? I think that's mostly the saucer though. I love long slender nacelles.

    This project is probably going to be a slow burner.

    Any thoughts, references or suggestions?

    I like the look of this a lot. There's something about smooth flowing shapes that gets me interested.

    In terms of suggestions, from the side profile the design seems slightly front heavy. Maybe move the nacelles back a smidge or make them longer? Cut a bit off the forward part of the saucer?
    Anyway, you're the designer, so I'll leave it up to you to do what you please

    The 3/4 forward view is pretty awesome. The front view... looks a bit... dunno... thick?

    That wasn't a real ortho to be fair

    How about this?

    It's still not it's best side, but yes, that's better.

    Haven't had much time to work on this of late, hopefully some real movement this week. I've swept the pylons and nacelles forward and given it a better look from the forward and beneath view points. I'm 99.95% happy with the shape so it'll be a case of figuring out the details and re-meshing this week.
