    impulse doodahs.
    I really do need to look at that hull below all of the impulse greebly area as that is a huge flat area of hull that I just do not like. I am sort of toying with the idea of sticking some large observation or lounge rooms somewhere off the back "saucer" area but I do not want to put them right under the drives. Maybe in those funny triangle/pentagon things that flank the central hull. SHRUG.

    Nice to see you here again.
    I vaguely remember this design, like it so far.

    In all great traditions, I pinched bits off other models. namely the deflector off the G and some lifeboats from the Linerunner. NOW keep in mind these are off other models and will need retexturing (mostly the linerunner bits) to match up tot he existing hull surfacing and glow bits etc. The lifeboats are in a rough out mode as the original did not have them on, actually I think none of the later sto ships have em. I figure this thing wont need large counts of the things so maybe some on the leading edge of the saucer thing in addition to what I have now should do. I am still not sure how I will dress them though. Be they cut into a recess or some other "trimming" One thing I do hate about them is they really interfere with internal planning as you need to consider rooms windows to those rooms and hallways. Then all the other crap piercing the hull like phasers and sensors.

    Issue with using and adapting old textures and materials to new methods is you often gaff some place. . . . . lol anyhow found some of the settings I had were contradicting the gloss channels and even now it is still a bit dodgy as this rough surfacing like what I used on the Connie just does not work here I do not think. So I will have to diddle about and see if I can find a new set up or figure out which of the TNGish ones I have done that I actually will accept today. The one that was with this starting file I had just was not up to my wants/demands anymore. (used the old Xshuttle file as a template, probably should have used the reimagined tos stuff or the onimaru, though some of that is already years old lol)

    Anyhow updates are mostly the meh doodahs in the central hull. I am still not so sure about having torps near the top of the hull behind that round thing. But trek mantra shields go ship usually goes as the weapons can easily breach anything of a sizeable girth so burying components is a bit moot. Something many forget. Either case it still bothers me some that they are so near the surface as well as a thin area of the hull then add in the fact they are pretty much inline with the nacelles. I dunno how much that would disrupt a field vs it firing offset to the central axis/equatorial. HAH um, also I have no idea what that greeble facing front will be, lounge, windows, some sensor, dealies, vents, whatevers?

    Well no harm using things and doodads from other models when they fit.

    Nice work, the resemblance to the Saber-class is really apparent, it's gorgeous.

    decided that pit needed a break and faffed about with the nacelles, I think maybe for the worse. lol I was thinking they were a bit too long then I started to mental floss with the arrangement and wanted to see what I could do while they were still in a rough block out condition. I might be considering a replacement for them entirely.

    I get so excited when I look at there angles here. I like the deflector effect here.

    I like this. Especially as I use the model you're basing this off of in STO as my preferred tactical escort skin (although its a T6 underneath). However I most -definitely- prefer where you added what appears to be weapon pods on either side of the hull, below the nacelles.

    If I may suggest something to try? That circular object directly above the aft conference room? Wrap a 360 phaser strip around it.
