It was....Inevitable...

A death in the family, a hurried trip to the UK to organise a funeral and a dose of Deep Vein Thrombosis on the return flight to Australia - things have not been overly conducive to the old creativity to say the least. However, a little creative urge has survived and to get me modeling again, I finally decided to take the plunge and use the elements I had made for the Ajax to create an Enterprise that I could call my own. That and I need one for an upcoming project, just to add some further impetus.

Still some details and possible corrections to go, but pleased with things so far. Then it will be time to make with the UV-ing and the texturing - something that always seems to end up a long way down the list.

Having finally got a secondary hull, my addled brain decided to go off on yet another tangent. I have always had a closet interest in the various warp engine designs that people have come up with over the years - particularly how the designs progress from the cylindrical TOS nacelles to the boxy linear TMP design. Just go with it - it's a Star Trek geek thing. Thus I present the USS Endeavour from 'Ship of the Star Fleet: Vol 1' which introduces the LN-52-SCNN warp drive unit.

Again, more detail to be added. Opens up a few more ship types that I can build.

  1. From a totally aesthetic view the boxy nacelles make it look like it goes faster, I like it :o)
