Concept Design: The Halcyon Part 12 “Halcyon MK1 and MK2”

Halcyon MK1 and MK2

.Available.

They are not textured and only available in Lightwave3d for now, if I texture them would equal more time, greater the cost.

Of course there is also the early version of the Ranger that I may rework the engines, or maybe I won’t and Pathfinder Class Interplanetary ship and the McCall design but limited amount per engagement with McCall’s Daughter.. once they are gone that’s it.. and of course my Nautilus all in Lightwave3d 9.61..

I am nearing the end of the first phase of the Halcyon build and getting it ready minus textures for sale, as I work on other sections they will also be for sale at a lesser price and as and if sections have updates they will be free to those who buy the design.

Concept Design: The Halcyon Part 10 “Halcyon in Orbit”

Halcyon in Orbit


I was away on holidays over the past 2 weeks, eager to get back to designing, but now I am here low enthusiasm to get started, so just to get my creative energy going I rendered two new images.

No frills, but after the time away I might see the design afresh and to give some thought to this and my next projects.

Well apart from working on the cockpit and other sections for the Halcyon, I was thinking of returning to the Nautilus from 20.000 Leagues Under the Sea’s, using the internal layout I built as a frame and jazzing the older one up a bit to have elements of the two Nautilus models I designed.

But I give it some thought, next post will not be my normal post, but something I have been interested in for several years..

Star Trek: Edge of the Federation

“Edge of the Federation”


I dusted of my U.S.S. Enterprise model and with a nice background image by dadrian on deviantart. A much needed break from my own designing, my appreciation for concept artists has grown to such heights, how the likes of Syd Mead, Doug Drexler, Rick Sternbach, do it I cannot say.. But I applaud their work all the more.

Concept Design: The Halcyon Part 9

Concept Design: Halcyon MK1 & MK2


The Halcyon design I started a few weeks ago is nearing it end of the building phase and I have to start thinking about the textures, not a favourite part of cgi that I can enjoy, but I will be doing just that in a few weeks as I have a trip coming up and a small commission which is great.

This design will be up for sale when its done, for Lightwave users, I don’t use other programs so at the moment for limited use. later I will build the cockpit and other sections as time allows.

Concept Design: The Halcyon Part 8

The  Halcyon


The design is almost complete, modelling side of things anyway, I need a break from this to recharge my creative energy before taking on the Internal setting, as mentioned before, this will include the cockpit, corridor, small engine room, main hatch area, cargo area, then on to the land craft (but that may come first). I don’t know about texturing it yet hence the break 🙂

Concept Design: The Halcyon Part 7

The Halcyon


Taking shape with some added details, I am currently redesigning the engines and here I have the ship with landing gear extended. you can see (just) the 6ft tall crewman..

Concept Design: The Halcyon Part 5

The Halcyon


Getting close to finishing the external look, now I have to think about the texture maps and later the internal sets, this will be available for sale in the future and I am going to try to make it available for DAZ 3d users, also on the cards for this design is land-craft of some description and perhaps a small flying craft for planetary surveys..

Here are a few images from different angles to show off the design, going to take some time before I add more details.

The Halcyon


Once again I am having to change the Blog settings and at the same time making the sections easier to navigate, namely the Star Trek section, Constitution Class, Jefferies Space-tug, etc get their own sections.. I possibly revise that a little more.

Such as the Registry work I did may go into their own subsection,.

The biggest nuisance for me that the multi images I post as collage rather than single images don’t open as I want and I hope you want to see, I render image large to fit the larger screens we enjoy these days.

So alas you will be seeing more changes to the look of the blog and I hope its for the better and quicker to navigate.

Concept Design: The Halcyon Part 2

The Halcyon



The design is as said in WIP status and some sections (Engines) maybe altered later as the design progresses and I also want to design the internal sets, cockpit, crew area, and cargo bays and I have already started on the land craft bay between the lower engines. the design stands just over 103.meters long.
I have yet to finalize the mother-ships design, but its going to be big, perhaps having fold-space abilities rather than Light-speed / Hyper-drive or Warp speeds etc..  But more on that in the future. 
I hope to do a few cross sections at a later date. I hope you stay tuned

Concept Design: The Halcyon Part 1

The Halcyon


First project for 2017, a design I am calling the Halcyon (a mythical bird, usually identified with the kingfisher), a support craft for a larger ship but is capable of hyper-light speeds, I will have more details later as the design develops, I will design the larger ship later as time allows and a land craft.

I am also thinking of designing the interior, cockpit, hatch and the landing craft bay and perhaps a simple corridor. I was a little influenced by Space 1999 for the cockpit windows and I think that might continue into the internal design.

This is also part of my Pathfinder series of designs, a later design with artificial gravity

Additional images with the scale I have given it and the scale of a Land craft

2000AD’s: Dan Dare P1 “Eagle Shuttle Scale”

Updated the scale of Dan Dare Shuttle design..


The Final scale is still open to revision but its works for me

Concept Designs “Pathfinder” P1

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

2145-a

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 ..

2145-b

changed the engine struts
