The Norfolk DDE-207 stands to battlestations as a part of Patrol Squadron TWELVE (PATRON-12) off the orbital shelf of Condorcet (Sigma Draconis II). Destroyer Escorts like the Norfolk are often the only thing that stands between a colony world and the ravages of bandits, marauders, and scum of every stripe.


I wanted to show off the DDE model in a different color scheme, and the first thing that popped into my head was a hornet/wasp/yellowjacket style in yellow and black.
Modeled with Trimble SketchUp. Rendered with Kerkythea.

Thanks! I think this will end up being the scheme I ultimately go with for the final composite render of all the ships. Or at least one of them.  The disposition of the desired Strike Squadron lends itself to two wings or fighting elements, so I am considering a 'Red Oni / Blue Oni' approach.

I'm going to go for a couple others and see what comes of them.

I like these colors best far.
Great Background also.

What really love about this model is that every time I look it over I see something new. Thanks again forth your amazing level of detail and thought which is put into every piece of every model.

I'm thinking about trying a few other color schemes, then going with the one you prefer the most for the composite of the STRIKERON.
