But if I called this a drafting table, architect's table or a trestle board everyone would be mislead and confused.

After giving it some idle reflection, perhaps I should rename this thread something more like Harcourt Fenton Mudd's (not-so-one-of-a-kind) three-dimensional blackboard for Starfleet Command 2: Empires at War, (or, more simply put --  Mudd's SFC2:EaW 3DBB)

... That's what I get for thinking.

I used to draw a lot (sort of a prerequisite for being a tattoo artist), but I was more of a life drawing sort of guy -- portraits, animals and stuff. Being that my hands are not what they used to be, digital work appeals to me more these days. I still can draw, but I usually don't doodle spaceships any further than Flash Gordon rocket-ships or flying saucers.

But since you asked, here's about as close as I get these days.
(No, it's not exactly new or hand-drawn -- but it IS a drawing of sorts.)

Welcome back Mudd! It´s cool to see you´re still around.
Last week I was just browsing, and refound your old site. Sadly, your ships are no longer there. There is some place where we can still download them? :)
Kinddest regards,
Cassio

Sadly, no. Even more sadly, many of those old models were lost to me a few years ago. But on a brighter note, the stuff i've been working on for the last couple of months is lower in polycount, higher in detail, and all around just plain better than what I lost. I'll post pics when I'm able (typing on mobile now - interweb took a dive)

Pretty sda when the mobile phone is the better way to get connected than the house.

Had to switch back to cable because the DSL was so unreliable

You were the author of that ancient Tiberius One shipyard, weren't you? The one with all those kickass blue Mirror Universe repaints? I miss those desperately, including the Refit Connie repaint. It's a miracle I still had the original connie repaint, but I remember some of the Starship museum craft in repaint as well.

Yeah, Tiberius Station One was me. Thanks for the kind words, though colored with nostalgia; they are appreciated all the same.

Bah, you're all too modest Mudd. Your Mirror universe paints were more distinctive and eye-catching than any other Mirror universe treatment to date, especially in light of the cavalcade of Shock-yellow claw paints thanks to Enterprise. You actually made schemes that were sinister but cool, and with genuine effort.
