Starhawk’s, Space-rider and Wasp fighter designs with WIP renders
Using far out background art of Graham Gazzard I have set Starhawk’s SpaceRider, with the Dundee Battle-cruisers and my Wasp fighter designs, all inspired by DC Thomson Starblazer comics
I hope you enjoy them
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.

My attempt showing the S.S.V. Endeavour approaching and then touching down on the surface of Rama, modelled in @Lightwave3d, I modified the Endeavour a little.
Rendezvous with Rama is a science fiction novel by British writer Arthur C. Clarke, first published in 1973. Set in the 2130s, the story involves a 50-by-20-kilometre (31 by 12 mi) cylindrical alien starship that enters the Solar System. The story is told from the point of view of a group of human explorers who intercept the ship in an attempt to unlock its mysteries.

New model completed based on another Starblazer comic No:103 ROBOTS OF DEATH July 1983 Cover art: by Keith Robson, Writer: T Stent, Interior Artist: Carlos Pino.
I tweaked the design and decided on its scale. I included in one image a scale referance with the classic USS Enterprise canon length and my other Starblazer design, Starhawk’s SpaceRider and I also included Dan Dare’s Eagle Shuttle from 2000AD the smallest vessel at 100ft

Not much work to show for 2021 just some old renders I have not posted from 2020, its all a bit of a blur.
2 new renders with my new machine, the first background is by Ali Ries and the second is by GrehamTG
This design based on Ian Kennedy artwork is now finished, meaning I not going any further with it, I could but that’s always the problem with CGI, you always feel you can do more or need too.
First up is my finished renders, I will share specs later and I will update this thread, I have far to many threads for the same projects on this blog.
I am moving on to another design from another DC Thomson Starblazer comic, issue 103 ROBOTS OF DEATH Cover Artist: Keith Robson but its the internal art where the designs are found credited to Carlos Pino.
Of course I am taking a few liberties with the design going from the drawn to 3D,and I am not sure about the aft stabilizer but in the comic they do land on the surface.
