Default Apollo Class

Hello!
Im not satisfied with the current appearance of my Searcher (Buck Rogers) so, Ill keep it on hold for while.
That said, I solved to start another wip. An old project: bring back to life an old ship from the well known wolfpack member named Eric Peterson. The Apollo class is an Ambassador variant built by Eric in 1998, and the mesh isnt a public release. Just a bunch of peoples has the mesh. As it is for the Searcher, the Apollo dont had to much refs available, and appeared to be impossible to get new ones since Eric said the mesh was lost... until I find Mateen.
Matten Greenway, other wolfpack member, was kind enough to provide me a few renderings of that old mesh, and now Im trying to build a new version of her, based over renderings of that old mesh. I still need to redo the plataform and the pylons in one piece, more like the Ent-C.
Ignore the lights, cause they are just temp ones to point mesh errors (Im happy that no one was pointed ).
The main blocks are all in place, and Ill start to add details as my free time permits. Hope that you like.

That's a really great start, dude. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Edit: BTW, I know you said on 3DSciFi that you had renderings of the model but do you have this sheet? It might come in handy. (or not )

Check my edit.

I was actually expecting that you were going to post this, since I'd already seen that you were online. So, you can say I had a bit of a head-start with that fast reply.

No, I don't have the mesh. The only Eric Peterson meshes I ever had were the wide release ones (Ent-A, Ent-B, Oberth-class, etc.) I found them on this site:

http://www.shipschematics.net/

I clicked on "Star Trek," "UFP and Starfleet," "TNG and Beyond..." and it's listed a little less than halfway down the page in the "Tactical Cruiser" section.

I really like the warp nacells on this one. Alot more detail than the Enterprise -D ...... More like what was seen on the Ambasador class. I always liked that one. Too bad it never saw a lot of screen time. Maybe when Paramount gets desperate for a new TV Trek franchise.

Very nice class of starship. My favorite class fly in Bridge Commander would have to be the Nebula Class, which this class bears a physical resemblance to...except it uses Ambassador Class-esque design which I like even better. It would be cool I could fly this ship in Bridge Commander. Very nice, hope to see more!

Thank you for the kind words. I dont have the skills to put her in Bridge Commander, but Ill release the mesh, so, you can use it to build the BC version.
Its update time!
- The pylons and the plateu were redone in just one piece.
- The sensors were redone
- mesh erros were corrected
- the original version dont had a neck, but miy version will have a small one.

Its better?

What he said ! You're doing a great job on this one.

I've seen a lot of " kit bash " models where they just grab stuff from several models and stick it all together. Most of the time they don't take time to sort out the details but this model you're building gets it right from the start.

Like I said on 3DSciFi, she's looking great. I like the color scheme, it reminds me of the Enterprise-C, which I really like.

Thank you Chris!
The color schema will be to much similar as that one from the Ent-C, but in blue tones, instead of the green tones like in the Ent-C.

After sometime, updates.
- The plateau was redone;
- The plateau, the upper structures and sec hull were repositionated;
- the neck wont have torp launchers anymore;
- the ship is a little longer now, but I believe it makes her better ballanced;

Is it better?

After a long hiatus, Im back. Therefore, next updates wont come so fast due to my small free time available.
The sec hull was totally redone, and I believe that now it looks ok.

One year later, update time!
I think I did a good setup for the torp launcher this tile. Naceles and "ass" still needs some refinements, as details still needs to be added all around. The green bits are placeholders.
