Sweet looking ship. Cant wait to see this one modelled and textured. The Defiant needs a futuristic replacement I think.

WOW !!!!!

Azell  ...   your texturing concepts never cease to amaze me sir !!  I like it a lot .. 

I kinda like the pivoting nacelles ... 

Yours is obviously superior !!!

aye not superior...just an interpretation...this is what I saw when I first saw your design Buzz
the ship looked like the nacelles could move...so I made them variable geometrical...I just had to tweak the concept a little...
I made the warp grill only on the ventral side, as the dorsal would have more armour when she was in a defensive/offensive mode
(the nacelles are angled downward in "fight mode"...and straight in "normal status" and low warp...and finally upward at high warp
because it seems that it is seemingly not only best configuration for Fed warp efficiency, but also the most classic...  ::) )
Think of it like an F-14 tomcat wing design...as the plane goes into a faster speed the wings automatically begin to increase their
sweep and small cannards begin to deploy outward...same as this ship as the Defiant goes into higher warp speeds, the nacelles
will increase their angle upward to improve warp effiency and stablization.

I couldn't have come up with that idea on my own...I needed to experience your concept for my idea to come into play
So thanks for the concept mate :)

Thanks for the kind words Azel...  but the fact is your work IS far better.  And there is no shame in that.  Heck you are one of the best here !!  I see a lot of the way I USE to do things .. and MUCH MUCH more in your work.  I simply quit over 30 years ago.  My hands have became less adapt to doing this sort of work ..  and the mind (if not used, trained or allowed to express this sort of talent will simply loose the abilities it once had.)

So when I make that sort of statement guys ..  it really is not to review things in a poor or severely negative light ..  

It would be like me getting my hands on that 3-D program to build the wire mesh ... etc..  heck it takes time to learn these things !!  Again that is no disgrace !!

I thoroughly enjoy working with you guys !!!


oh and by the way ...  just to have a little fun with you guys ..  there is a difference between Bussard ...   and BuZZard

( no offense intended BTW ..)

BTW...  we BOTH forgot something ....  At least two forward and one rearward Q-torp tubes...

I focused so much on getting the overall hull right .. I forgot one of the most important things .   More than likely I'll add them to the pods below ...  on the outside edges of each of the twin deflector dishes.

thanks
