I’ve neglected my Civil War ships for too long so I thought I’d get some work done on this one. Most of what I’ve done is flesh out the impulse area. I’ve also decided on a final class name. This is a Smith class ship named after the master make up artist Dick Smith. Other ships in the class will be the Baker, Savini, Drexler and Winston.
This is an option for another Klingon ship based on an old idea by Matt Jefferies.

Well I’ve restarted a project that I’ve been working on for almost as long as I’ve been doing CGI. I’ve started to replicate my house again. This is the start of the basement and the staircase leading upstairs. I’m useing Mental Ray on this project instead of the default scanline renderer that comes with 3D Studio Max. This will be a long ongoing job. But I hope I can atleast get some of it done this time. Most of the textures are temp.

GALAXY QUEST ****
Added windows to the tulip bulb part under the upperdeck.
I added more textures and made adjustments to the ones already done.
I decided on where to place the aft disrupters. I also started to detail shuttle bay area.
“Want a date?”
Even though the mesh isn’t complete I had an urge to do an image with it. This was mostly done inside Max with very little photoshop work. I’m rather happy with it and it’s the first image of the new year. Although not perfect. 😀
(Update)Here is the calender page for this image.

FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS ****
It’s just the Benny this time.
Fixed the scortch marks on the warp engines.
Added scortch marks to the lower saucer. I need to fix the textureson the warp pylons. A few more small things to do and I should be finished with this ship.
FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH ****
I finished the basic shape of the hull and now can get on with some details. I can also start thinking about ideas for warp engines.
Here are three options for the Klingon disrupter. I actually like all three of them.
I actually have no idea what this was on the original D-7. On my version it will be a shuttle bay.
Here you can see I added a little more to the neck. I'm not sure if I'll keep the disrupters there or not.
“You fuck off ya patronizin bitch! I’m sick’a yer shit!
Here in the aft section you can see the two impulse engines and what might become a shuttle bay.
I’ll lube my own crankshaft from now on.
BUBBA HO-TEP ***
I’ve nearly got the secondary hull in shape. It will take a little tweaking to get just right. The warp engines are temp.
