Overview.

Go back to the bottom of the previous page to see the rear engine details.

Completed the rear engine struts. There is no right or wrong way to make these. There were no good references except that I could see it's sort of a wing-thing and the top profile is about "that" big.

Very sharp but you put a lot into them. Definitely very nice to see mate. :knockout: :thumb:

Very rough scale and block-out of neck and upper decks.

I now see I have a main hull problem as well. It is too vertical. Damn glad I left that extra fore to aft hull line in. I can change the geometry without messing up the previous work... too much. *sigh*

So fix the hull first and then move back to the neck and upper decks.

Upper deck was too long in the back.

Sloped the main hull a little bit more. Still needs a bit more slope on upper and lower hull. So, so glad I did not detail the main hull yet.

Minor tweaks. Trying to tighten things up a little. Refining the shapes. Double checking lines and positions for the future details before I start on the upper decks shapes.

Roughing the bridge. It's close, but not round enough.

Smoothed out the bridge. Had to completely rebuild. Used Curviloft skin countours. It's done, just needs detailing.

Added the bubble to the main hull. It's a group within the component. (it's too small and I've already enlarged it)

Fiddled with the overall shape of the upper decks. Smoothed out (Erase+Ctrl) and narrowed the front of the neck. Erase+Ctrl'd the remaining hull lines, except the very top.

Blocking out the top decks. Same old issues. Odd angles and shapes. No decent references.

Thanks Mike and tuna, but the level of detail is going to take a while. Here is a sample.

The animation will have to wait. Brain frazzled from working on the upper decks.

For the same reason I'm taking a break from figuring out the upper decks, so I just did some inner detailing. Inset the main beam muzzle and resized the inner front pylon nacelle mounts. Also added the black panels to the front nacelle struts. They will also get more detail in the future.

I really do love the shape of this ship. 4 months (four?! damn) of working on it and I still like looking at it.

Not a lot to see. Still pushing and pulling vectors and lines and even redrawing lines for the upper decks. It's getting there. A little more sleeker and smoother.

Took a stab at the upper deck rear pods. Meh. Better, but I'll have to remake them.
