Using the same scene set-up as I used for the Star Trek renders I recently posted. I decided to swap them for the Robert McCall design I finished a few weeks ago, seemed a good scene to drop it in, I needed a break from Star Trek to recharge 🙂

Wow has it been so long since my last post, what can I say, I was ill since the holidays, stinking cold that I have just got over and almost firing on all thrusters.
Update of the McCall Class ship I have called Sagan, after one of my favourite artists and scientist, Robert McCall (image below) and Carl Sagan, a little homage, if you where to twist my arm I would add Tyson, Einstein, Hawking, Curie, etc. its a science ship and its named after those to look at the cosmos with wonder and curiosity to unravel the mysteries.
Well, happy New Year in 2016 and if you check out my posts here from time to time I like to say thanks for dropping in again.

Ending of 2015
Nearing the end of this build before I can texture, which due to time constraints and impending days of big meals over the holiday period I am going to leave that until the new year, if Christmas is something you celebrate I say Happy Christmas, of not, Happy Holidays, or just “don’t work to hard”.
I hope that those of you who make repeat visits to my corner of the web, I thank you, and I hope to see your visits continue in 2016.
I do have a large number of projects to do in the new year ahead, some involving Star Trek as it is its the series 50th anniversary, a return to the original Enterprise, perhaps even a tutorial but in video.. but not a 100% sure, time being a factor.
I also have planed a few more original designs in line with the work I am doing at present, I hope there is more interest in Sci-fi/fantasy beyond our beloved Star Trek and Star Wars.. there has to be,, yes ?
I have made some minor changes to the design, added temporary patches NASA, ESA, etc, hatches and I changed the ships name to Sagan after Carl Sagan and E.S.S. is simply Earth Space Ship etc
Last update before holidays really kick in but I have made some changes, mainly I removed the main outrigger connection (3) to the external pods and moved the access to the central access tube.
My latest project based on a Robert McCall painting (Robert McCall who did many paintings for NASA and thus inspired me to do this, also my attempt to do a design not based on Star Trek, Star Wars or anything else from the wide world of TV Sci-fi, this is fun as I have something of a free hand.
While I have worked out a scale to suit myself, I have no idea what Mr McCall had in mind so, here is my scale so far using a deck height of 9 ft.
