Tranport hanger doors.

I'm using very simple angles and push/pull offsets.

Modified module imported back into model.

All non-detailed mass blocks are erased just before importing the modified mass block. Do not erase before. You might need it again until the detail is finished.

I forgot the close up of the guns. Again very simple trapezoids. Everything will get more detail over time, but not too much. The ship is so large that details too small are not worth modeling after a certain point.

Here is the bow detail. The gun was just turned upside down and push/pull used for equipment bay thing and simple arches and offsets for detail.

Here is how it's all fitting together so far. I may start work on the aft sections next.

Roughed out angular modifications along the keel. Very long way to go underneath.

Thanks! Simple steps and shapes that when combined, look more complex.

Again, an excellent design by Junji Obuko. I'm just replicating.

Nicely done, filling out nicely and massive.

Thanks! I can see that this is one of those models that will not need a lot of detail to look detailed, yet I could easily work on increasingly smaller detailing for a year.

Exactly the kind of project I needed right now.

Okay, now the aft updates. Still just roughing out the mass blocks. I have no pictures for reference of this angle, so I am making it up as I go.

The starboard side of the ship will be the same. There is only a port side drawing of the ship.

I've simplified the top middle section. It was getting too complicated. Now just a box on top of a box with angled front and rear.

Yes these is space underneath it.

An updated view from the starboard side. It definitely has a classic overall Japanese sci-fi spaceship shape.

More detail added.

From here on I will post only substantial changes. As you can see, most of the detail is just basic random shapes that can be added however any one feels like.

Thanks, but the design credit goes to Junji Obuko. I'm just recreating it. I'll post the original sketch when I'm done.

Remember, the key here is simple shapes, some a little angled, combined to make seemingly complex models.

I also just fiddle with it an hour or two each day. I've learned that for me, too many hours all at once makes me lose sight of my end goal and also creates mistakes that have to be fixed later.

well spoken Mike :) so I need to improve my English vocabulary for this series here :lol:

Bryan, I love these ship-like frame struts inside the hangar (is it one or the intake of an engine?)

Thanks.

It is a hanger. The struts are very simple.

In the second picture I've just today, reduced the thickness, did a small offset and then push pull, both front and back.
