Its been so long since I used this model, it’s a terrible thing spending weeks or in my case months designing and building models and after the first test renders and a renders I take a little more seriously, the model is forgotten.
I have taken this out of mothballs and with the wonderful Spawn Nebula art by Ali Ries and have set 3 Ranger Class Destroyers deployed on patrol
The model is available for sale royalty free on my Gumroad page
Pathfinder Spaceship 2085
First design I done in a while, an early Pathfinder design or perhaps the original (going back to my other design now called the ranger and posted a while ago, This does not have artificial gravity but in this it has the power to keep a consent thrust at 1-G. Fusion rocket perhaps for long-term acceleration in space.. can land on Earth type gravity wells but no much more, inter-system design, not interstellar, I am playing with some ideas of my own, inspired by the recent discoveries over the last few years, I like to try my had at a story and this design could be featured.. perhaps I am being overly optimistic having this design launch in 2045 AD .. but there is hope that we (humanity) will do these things in the future.
The ship is quite tall and multi levelled,, but a small crew,, perhaps 12 or 20 crew personal, but I am given that some thoughts as the design develops
I updated the engines
The main engines are outboard and they have landing struts connect there, clearing the lower section to (maybe has smaller lander pads but also a large hatch and cargo area, landing craft to explore beyond the LZ and to build long term habitats etc ..
changed the engine struts

Last post for a time, its the summer and its too good to be in doors looking at pixels and polygons, time to spend time in under the sun and go for some long walks.
Enjoy your summer and I hope its healthy and safe for you, but here is my parting images of the design, no textures and as simple as rendering it in its place

I am still working out some aspect of the design and some future designs to add to the fleet, larger Capital ships and support scouts and landing craft..
