Of the major races, the Coludabans are the ones I’ve spent the least time on, probably because I sense them ultimately being the most complex. They’re the most advanced by far, and their outward appearance will be the most varied. This ship looks the part of your typical post-TNG sci fi spaceship, but I think there are some elements to the design that will ultimately give the Coludabans a distinct flair. I want to give the hull a new material, though, because it seems like they would have more advanced alloys and better manufacturing techniques, and would have a smoother, tileless hull, rather than the utilitarian feel of this texture. Also, the Norvans, who are second in tech prowess, have much more advanced-looking ships than this, so I might go back to the drawing board altogether. Anyhoo, here it is:
A new design I slapped together this morning. It’s based on the “ring shuttle” I did several months back, but much more refined– it’s a one-piece model, sculpted from a simple torus. It’s also one of the first models I’ve done that’s 100% manifold right from the start. I’m hoping it will pass the Shapeways tests so that I can make this my first real-life 3d model. Love how it turned out– looks very dangerous, which a good Norvan ship should. Looooove Blender!
