Retro Enterprise #7


Latest WIP and burning the midnight a little – I’ve added diffuse maps and am still tweaking the panelling details as you can see from detail on the lower section – still a little obvious from certain angles.


This close-up render of the main dish section shows the hexagonal pattern, which is a departure from the expected detailing, but which seems to work – looking at the renders for the new “Abrams” Enterprise, you can see how the designers have striven for a lot of fine detail for close-up shots, however brief, which add to the sense of scale.

Almost done – some final tweaks on the nacelles – not noticeable here, but I have retained the classic appearance of the “bussards” – those pulsing, spinning things on the front of the impulse engines, which added visual interest to the OS Enterprise.
