    Here are some starships I've been working on for the roleplaying game. They're untextured vanilla models so far, but I have some orthographic drawings I'll be using to get both unpainted and decorated models.

    Nova-Drive 3-Z Light Freighter:

    Soro-Suub Nella 342 Light Freighter:

    Soro-Suub Nestt Light Freighter:

    Kuat Drive Yards Corona-class Light Transport:

    The following are in line to be modeled:

    INCOM A-24 Sleuth Scout Ship
    Ghtroc 720 Light Freighter
    Gymsnor-3 Light Freighter
    Corellian Engineering Corporation CU-37 Courier
    Corellian Engineering Corporation Barloz-class Medium Freighter
    Corellian Engineering Corporation HWK-270
    Corellian Engineering Corporation YT-1300
    Corellian Engineering Corporaiton YT-2400
    Corellian Engineering Corporation Action VI Transport
    Kuat Systems Engineering Persuer Enforcement Ship
    INCOM T-65 X-wing
    Koesayr BTL-S3 Y-wing
    Slayn and Korpil B-wing
    Dodonna Blissex RZ-1 A-wing
    INCOM/Subpro Z-95 Headhunter Mk1
    INCOM/Subpro Z-95 Headhunter Mk2
    Cloakshape Fighter
    Preybird Fighter
    Razor Fighter
    R-41 Starchaser
    Sienar Fleet Systems TIE Fighter
    Sienar Fleet Systems TIE Interceptor
    Sienar Fleet Systems TIE Bomber
    Sienar Fleet Systems TIE Avenger
    Sienar Fleet Systems Skipray Blastboat
    Cygnus Spaceworks Assault Gunboat
    Cygnus Spaceworks Missile Boat

    These will all be at 1:350 scale for gaming.

    Thanks! I'm having difficulty visualizing how to get the Ghtroc's front "wings" attached to the rest of the ship. To give you an idea of what I'm talking about, here's a picture of the actual vehicle:


    See how the two "flippers/epaulets" are sort of blended into the body? I can't figure out how to make it work in the Metasequoia model. Other than that this ship is finished(it's only slightly less popular than the YT-1300 in the gaming circles, so it's probably going to be more popular than the rest, so I need to make this one work).

    Here's my current progress:

    Seems that you will need to slice through the engine pod or the "saucer".

    It is not easy to do on Metasequoia, but the shape doesn't seems to be very complicated, I did something similar on my Cougar model, to make the bottom part of the missile pod.

    What I did was to slice the part on 3D view, hiding any unwanted face, in order to avoid unnecessary cuts on faces, and using the "shadow" which is formed on metasequoia of the contact area of the two overlapping faces as a reference for the cut; it is hard to do, but doable (hope my explanation is understandable).
