    Added the hangar bays, undid some bits of the hull, and spent most of a day getting all the pieces on the same centerline.

    Okay. This is weird. I took a break from this to redo my website again. (www.rogerrenfrow.com if you'd like to look.) Now that I'm back at this, something funky is going on. It looks like watercolors.

    It looks kind of cool. On the other hand, that would totally freak me out if one of my projects looked like that all of a sudden.

    Intriguing design. I like some areas more then others. Those engines/nacelles are fun and slick. The bottom part is maybe something I am not sure...Keep it on.

    Yeah, I've never really liked the secondary hull. It's one of several things about this ship I keep staring at, trying to figure what to do about it, and then keep staring.

    I tried opening the file on a CAD workstation today. The file is corrupt. I'll have to try and salvage it.

    I split the different sections of the ship (drive, deflector, saucer, etc.) off into separate files and externally referenced them all to the base file. Looks like that fixed the problem.

    Fiddled with a new secondary hull. Reminds me of a banana.

    Interesting shape, though it's hard to say from that one angle.

    Four quick views of the engineering hull (with changes). The deflector is going to change.

    Ah! I find that solution more elegant. Nice shape and it follows more the angles of the saucer. I know that sometimes I try to imagine how the aerodynamic would influence the shape, and I think you got it right that way. Keep it up, and do incremental saves! I got burned once and twice...
