My very first Enterprise! It occurred to me last night that, in all these years of 3D modeling, I’ve never tried to make an Enterprise of any kind. I’ve made Federation starships, mind you, and heavy cruisers at that, but I’ve never just pulled up a set of blueprints and tried modeling the one that started it all. So here she is! Not perfect, and I took off the texture/bump (looks great from the top, but needs to be mapped from all angles), but it’s a WIP and I’m happy with it so far. Modeled in Blender3D using the New Paradigm Studios blueprints located here. For the texture map, I used the color orthos available here.
A few captures:
And a couple of animations:
