Star Trek USS Enterprise Reimagined Refit Phase-II

Image

This is my version of the Enterprise Refit Phase II, not so much a new ship as it’s based directly on my older reimagined Constitution class, the main changes are the warp engines and changes to the secondary hull interior and deflector dish area only and the hangar deck and so on a tweak here and there for good measure.
I included a redesigned hangar deck and cargo area, inspired by Star Trek The Motion Picture Refit Enterprise. with 2 independent elevators to move them down to the shuttle storage and cargo area, I might add more details to this area later.

Happy New Year 2020

Slowly returning to normal after the holiday break, and now after a time away from CGI getting my mind back into gear for it. so I took the reimagined Enterprise etc for another render.

I think most fan like the spacedock scene in STTMP, I know I do.

Star Trek: Birth of a Star

Another rendering using my Enterprise model and GrahamTG art as the setting,  birth of a star perhaps, good enough title as any.

my appreciation to Graham Gazzard aka GrahamTG who makes his artwork available for us modellers who sometime get around to rendering..

 

 

 

Star Trek Art and Asteroids

This cover art has always inspired me.

The Art of Star Trek

It was a collaborative effort; Production Illustrator Jim Martin designed the art, executing it in a series of progressive pencil sketches. The art was subsequently turned over to freelancer Mikido Uesugi and John Knoll.



Here is my version again using GrahamTG space art and Asteroids..

Buck Rogers Starfighters

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Running out of steam with Star Trek designs and art so I have gone back to a design I made in 2008 just over 10 years ago, Buck Rogers Starfighter.. Gil Gerard’s series which I still enjoy watching from time to time.
Its fun working with these again. but looking at them there are areas I would do differently and a lot of areas which I would called unfinished now.
Shock surprise, no, not really but I have cleaned it up and might do some more.

 

Concept Design: Ranger Deployment

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
