    Looks great. RE: mirroring issue: did you do any scaling after mirroring? Have you tried recalculating normals, or deleting double vertices (if any)? Have you applied rotation and scale?
    Keep moving forward.

    I think I have the smoothing issue on the top sorted out, simply pushing some vertexes around and adding some geometry. I thought it was also fixed on the bottom too, but as I was running some quick renders just now it looks like they could still use a little tweaking.

    Anyway, I've now got some impulse engines and the hull extension to hold them. I tweaked the rear of the nacelle struts a little, making them a little narrower top to bottom. They just seemed too clunky before. And, I've added the first shapes for the fore weapons modules.

    Phil this was always my favorite design for the defiant. You are doing right by her and I can't wait to see her done.

    Ok, after too long of a break, I'm back at it on this model. I got really frustrated with some paneling issues. I got those sorted out and added a few more tricks to my repertoire recently. Lots more paneling, mid-rear round port, bay doors added as well as some geometry correction. Some of these details may get more tweaks, but feeling on a better path again with more to come.

    Awesome @PhilArt! I always loved that concept better than what we got
    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.
