What about a Mars and Federation Class, and why not even a Constellation Class with the same theme?

The full TOS line remade in this style is way too good to hope for. It'd probably cause the universe to implode.  :o

Hmmmm.......

Hopefully later this year I'll be making some money.  If this project hasn't been done by then, I will seriously consider paying someone to make a whole fleet of ships on this theme.  I didn't say I would pay, I said I would seriously consider.

YES!!! A CONSISTANT FLEET!!!

Guaranteed Download Here!!!!

See, this is why I love the TOS/Pre-TOS era ... It can be just as sleek and refined as any other era, with a little imagination; without pissing all over tradition. Sure, Gabe's Enterprise ain't your daddy's Constitution Class ... But it DOES look like a believable 22-23rd century Starship that pays homage to what has come before.

Does that mean you'll take a stab at it?  :-D  Maybe go all out and make one with an 11k poly limit?  :-D  And high res textures?

Count me in to kitbash any models with these design cues to fill in the gaps in the fleet. ;)

Red Sharif, I think you might want to modify that last post of yours.  You put your reply in the quoted posts.  :-p

11k??!!! Are you MAD? Most folks gripe at anything over 6k ... But it does sound appealing.

No - I'm TRYING to stay focused here. I really want to build the ships of the Four Years War and the Romulan War ... at least get a good healthy start on it before I move on to other things ...

... but this IS tempting.

Besides, Rod has a GREAT jump on things here. Maybe when I clean my plate up a bit, but until then, I'm just as excited to see these proposed ships as you are.

;D

Ok, how about 9k?  I won't gripe.  As long as I can get her into the game, and she looks good, I'm happy.  :-D

Here she is with the pylons painted and lighting that is more representative of the source pics.
She's 6900 polies (a bit higher than I hoped for.) She's also all one piece. So, kitbashing will be a bit tough as pulling parts off will leave holes. We'll have to look into that when the time comes.
 
If Romulans aren't cowards, then why do they taste like chicken?

I can't wait to see the paintjob you apply to the secondary hull. Excellent work.

Looks absolutely AWESOME! Thanks for sharing. Polies are a bit high but not bad considering the increased computing power of CPUs and GPUs since SFC was released. besides if you're going for a good number 69 is always a winner ;)

Best part -- I bet she'll kill the borg real good! PLEASE keep us updated.

Agreed.  Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing the final ship be more around 8-9k polies.  :-D  But that's just me.  :-D
