Here's the fusion core in most of it's glory. I decided just to finish the inner part and forget about the surrounding area. Anyway, this powerplant is called a Ceilus Reactor and is used to power forges used to make single piece ship hulls. The reactor is very powerful and is really in a class by itself. It has 4 fusion chambers and 8 incoming fuel injection units. This much power is needed in order to keep the forges fully powered without powersurges or drops in power so that temperatures are kept stable and the forged metal doesn't crack or warp under thermal stress.

This has been in progress for quite a while now, mainly because I lost interest in it. So for the last 5 weeks I've worked on it on and off. I hope you guys like it though :)

I know that everyone loves the detail, but to portrey the size of these objects you could put even more in. If you want of course.

at the moment it could just be a close-up of a micro battery. - provided the number wasnt there. and something else like another one man craft would help too.

I like it though, good work.

I thought about doing a few ships running around, but I was getting bored with the picture so I decided just to call it complete. Thanks though

By the matrix... its beautiful

You nailed the lighting down perfectly. I agree with Ixat about the straight lines... but why should I complain, I rarely use it myself :p But damn, the detail on this just blows me away. What I'd like to know is the dimensions of this behemoth.

Off the top of my head...the core cylindar is about 30-40ft long. The height from the bottom beam to the top is about 100-150ft.
