    Latest pics. I think I sorted out the deflector snout pretty well. These colors are temporary; I'm just laying out all the panel shapes. Still have a lot of details to model, too. But nonetheless, she's going pretty fast...

    Looks like you've got that nose down. Great work so far.

    You've probably found these, but just in case you haven't, here's a link to some hi-rez pictures of the studio model.

    Which raises an interesting question, are you going to model or texture the deflector detail?

    Thanks, Evil!

    Vortex, those are the very pics I'm working off of for all the details and greebles and such. Great pics, so lucky to have them.

    I will probably model all the little details I can. I like physically modeling stuff and dislike messing with textures very much. The Deflector will most likely be all modeled details.

    Here's a quick update shot. Starting to mess with the panel lines/deflector grid.

    Okay, steady progress on this lady. Fairly pleased with the results so far.




    Still have some physical details to add to the underside and the entire aft section.





    The lines underneath the deflector "snout" are too wide. They will have to be re-done.






    She's still got bare shoulders.




    Not far to go for this angle.




    Basic Modeling for the deflector seems under control.

    Coming along great. Good looking detail work so far.

    Great stuff. Will you be modelling the insides of the nacelle housings like the physical model had?

    Yes, that is my intention. The blue material behind the screen will be transparent and we will see the interior greebles within the nacelles. I'm not a big fan of those particular greebles, however. I always thought the interior space looked sorta weirdly empty. Part of me wants to see if I can come up with something better. But then creating greebles from scratch has never been my strong suit.

    Yeah, I guess I am now. I looked at a few tutorials and figured out some stuff... it's definitely time to get on board. Way past time in fact.

    For your viewing pleasure, My defiant model rendered in Blender Cycles:



    Can't even believe the difference cycles makes.



    She's maybe about 80-85% done. Not too much longer now...

    Trying to learn cycles is going to slow me down a bit, but it's definitely worth it.



    Time to finish the modeling up...
