    Since moving my Build to this Forum, I have recieved a few PM's asking if I would post an updated View of the entire ship. Please keep in mind, this is STILL a work in progress. Enjoy

    Looking great. The front reminds me of War Rocket Ajax from the 80's movie Flash Gordon, the rest is pure original. What program do you use for designing? Re: an earlier post of yours....I don't know the first thing about original skinning, but with a Photoshop cloning tool I can add onto or enhance an existing part.

    Im doing this entirely in Google Sketchup, and I guess you can skin with Bitmaps or Jpgs

    After looking at your ship, I think that POD of mine is too conventional. Going back to the drawing board!

    Don't settle on one thing too quickly, You've seen how quickly my designs change. ;)

    That's the "Inspirational part"!

    The inspiration has been coming from some rather strange places :)

    For example, the Docking module, I saw from a Cheerios box. LMAO

    Completed the Bridge internals. it LOOKS detailed, but Its actually pretty simple, most of the detail will be skinned. but this will give it depth, which will be AWESOME in the finished model :)

    I wouldn't mind a sunroom attached to my house that looked like that!

    Love the design DR! Great job so far!

    Thanks, you don't think im making it too detailed? I want it to look good, but I don't want the build to be near impossible

    Worked on the "shuttle" bay, although this launch bay is for the planetary vehicles.
