Starhawk Continued

Image

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

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 its based directly of 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.

Rendezvous with Rama

Image

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.

Starblazer Comic Designs

Image

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

Dundee Class Crusier

Space-Rider Finished

Image

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.
