Someone once said, that a 3d modeler building a Connie is like a Jedi building his
first lightsaber. Well, I think I'm going for my Jedi mastery by building a battlestar.

I'm also asking for general advice from those of you, who have built monster ships
like the battlestars, star destroyers, omega destroyer, etc. I know how to UV, and
I'm learning the material tree for several programs. Any advice on painting these mega
ships would be appreciated, even a tutorial about ship materials.

As you can see, the engines are almost complete, and I roughly blocked in the other
sections. Now I'm off to look for even more refs. ^_-
I'm still not back online, so I'll be back the next time I'm at my sister's place, in a few
days.

Eric

PS: I've shelved the Connie Construction Set for now. Suffering from Trek Burnout.
       This is the first time I've used modeled anything for quite some time. ^_-

Looks good, now you just need to throw away that stupid redesign.

I'm not fond of the Battlestar reboot; I also don't check my inbox enough.

Looking good. You've got a nice amount of detail modeling going on.
Keep up the good work.
It will look great when it's done.

I'd advise using an aztec pattern for the hull, eric. As well as optional name overlays (LIE?)

Looking great, mate. I hope you'll finish her.
