Here's an update. Started texturing the engineering section. Hope ya like it so far. I have a lot of details to add all over the model, but she's coming together.
Hearty thanks for the positive comments. It's very encouraging.
Great to see Lord Schtupp is still hanging around. I consider many of your models to still be the standards.

rod, its a dirty looking star ship i thank you that weathering looks fantastic, seriously great job, try to get a bit more near the edges of the hull plates though as it looks a bit more realistic, but seriously this is already shaping up to be your best yet

The weathering so far is just a random photoshop pattern. I haven't actually applied anything to specific areas. I'll make sure that I do though.  The plating needs a bit more work too.

Thanks

If you need an SFC3 porter, don't hesitate to ask.  I'd love to get my hands on this baby.

Battleclinic has a couple.  However, personally, I would love to see a new mesh made.  The ones available are a bit too outdated for my tastes.

Nope.  I think it's only CGI.  Someone would have to make a game version. 

Whatever happened to that Connie concept I had posted some time back from Scifi Meshes.com?

NP.. The model of the CG Enterprise used on YouTube was originally created by Gabe Koerner from CG Channel.

Eden FX has done a lot of work on Trek shows like Voyager, TNG, and DS 9. Here is an interview from a while back with Eden FX's spokesperson. He chats about some of their earlier work. I dunno if Eden or the producers of Star Trek XI are looking at the model.. but I'll see what I can dig up.

http://cgchannel.com/news/viewfeature.jsp?newsid=2098

I'll see if Gabe has any postings about the model he is using for YouTube films.

Gabriel koerner's ship is 1 of 3 ships being considered. Seeing as how Ryan Church is already working CGI on the Trek film, it might be Ryan's design, however there is no pics of Ryans ship online at the moment. the third ship I believe is the CGI reenhanced version from TOS on the remastered disks. I think both Ryan and Gabe did some work on those. But you can go to ...

http://www.gabekoerner.com/ent/

and see the ship in almost a step by step process of being made in CGI.. there are a lot of detail on it there.
