The Prodono Goro Dei mobile battlefactory in high orbit near Alpha Centauri four circa 2068 AD when the UNSC team found it.  The derelict fleet was nestled inside the space station.

Hello:
 It would be so awesome to arrive to that star system and to find that beautiful planet.... but I cannot get to imagine to also find such huge structure, with just it's presence would be enough to shake anybody's legs in awe and maybe even some bit of fear.

 Something you cannot see everyday ;) .

 I like your image a lot :) . Keep it up!.

Hi ChileTrek,

It is actually not that large.  This is a close-up view.  In Lightwave, the Goro-Dei is so small that you cannot even see it behind Alpha Centauri.  The 2nd moon of Alpha Centauri-4 is not visible either. 
I will redo this image sometime today or tomorrow to improve it. 

Thank you for the kind words. :)

Hello:
 And I look forward to see your new images. Renders like this one surely help give a greater feel for your universe and all that is included in it :) .

I am currently working on the Hai-Richon battlesuit.

Hello:
 I guess you really need to keep working on those new models non-stop, hehehe. I look forward to see how it will look like.

Hi ChileTrek,

The Hai Richon will have its basic model shape done in Poser, and the armor done in Lightwave.  It will be a combination of both programs. :)

 I didn't know you also had Poser. You truly have a huge variety of programs :D .

Hi ChileTrek,

I started by buying 2 a year from 2011 onward after I got Windows 7 and my first 3D CG gig.  It's why my version of Maya is four years out of date. :D
The newest program I have is Solidworks 2015 which I bought this year and it is the only software for 3D I have purchased this year so far.  I plan on buying Modo in September.
