Hey bud ..  again I apologise for the inability get this to you in a timely fashion.  I deeply appreciate your efforts and willingness to review this data.

Azel ..  please review and see if I have missed something  ( I know I'm still a little green )

I hope this helps ..  BTW..  I agree with Azels previous assessments with one word of advice ...  dot stretch too far ..  it might look more like a Romulan design !!   ;D ;D

At any rate ..  hope this helps...

thanks again

And thanks for going to detail here Buzz.... the sensor pod thingies already taper to the back now though az brought that up if you look in the second set of piccies you can see I changed that, photon tubes easily added will do it when I get back from work 2nite and as for the rear... should I just flatten the V out as I have the docking port already in there.. flatten out and stick on the tubes then it should be good to start the textures right

I think perhaps making it a lot "thinner" was  a big pat of it.  If ya choose to install a docking port (assuming that there is adequate space ..  that's ok ...  excellent idea . ) but don't make to the aft section too thick in order to accommodate it ...

Oh ..  and yes there are 4 impulse engine thruster outlets ..2 top ..  2 bottom..

I hope this makes sense !!

again ..  thanks so much for the efforts !

Hmmm  if ya recall RD's version of the Sovy ..  that sort of gray ( less blue tint I guess iw what I'm trying to say )  and yes ..  where ever you think best ..  darker gray textures ..

(some how I don't think I'm doing a good job at explaining what I'm trying to say) ..    I know you will do a good job !!  Heck you've done a superb job with the mesh !

Looks fantastic!

as for colors, can i request a second set of textures that uses dark red in place of the tan?

i like the way you started the texture you should keep them and make it another alternate texture

Hey Buzz, remember that Defiant-style light cruiser we were discussing many months ago?  I think this works as it.
