Lovely reds. Great texture for the planet and of course Enterprise looks beautiful as always.

The Enterprse-D had good lines but she didnt have the firepower to back her large size.
The Soveriegn and Intrepid class did and were half the size of her.

Beautiful shot , great composition and excellent lighting set up! Special praise for the model , amazingly detailed! Only thing that sticks out (a lot to me anyway) is the deflector, it appears the inner bit is almost square and a different colour than it should be ( [link] ) ([link]) the original seems a bit rounder and perhaps a bit bigger too. Apart from that .. AMAZING work. Top notch i say :D

Thank you very much!

Yes, the deflector... It went through about five revisions... this is the best I can currently do with it. Any further modifications would require major re-modelling of the secondary hull...

The little square in the middle? Fair enough , its a minor thing really. Looks awesome overall ! !

Yeah just needs to be less square i think, more rounded . This could be sticking out so much to me as I recently re-watched a bunch of TNG eps (Best of Both Worlds and onwards) I'm really impressed with all your models so far tho, great work ! I've been looking at the TMP v3 for my own plans and its transferred to VUE very nicely indeed, I'm currently putting some shiny shaders on it... Thanks for all your efforts !

Have fun with it. Like I said, I don't mind if others tinker around with my models, just please credit me as the original builder. I'm not some Alain Rivard to freak out if others modify my stuff :D

Excellent rendition overall. My only real quibble is that, though I know Mars has craters, the model for the planetscape looks more like it was taken from a picture of the moon and then recolored than it does like Mars. But even so, it looks great.

Excellent work as always!! :D This is a grand view to be certain! I love all the little orange light reflections/glares that you've added to all the various points on the bottom of the saucer. They really add pop and character to the ship and scene. Just very excellent small details that add so much to the finished image. Great work! :D

Then onto McKinley station for the final touch ups. Hope they don't scratch the paint the way Trip did 212 years earlier.

Minden... laza 20k-val kevesebb fizut kaptam, mint amire számítottam, ennek ellenére anyám basztat, hogy adjak neki pénzt (ő 3x annyit keres, mint én). Márpedig ha nem adok neki pénzt, abból botrány lesz. Nem mintha érdekelne, csak még vannak cuccaim otthon, amiket el akarok hozni, és nem egyszerű, mert szekrényt kell szétszedni meg hasonlók.
Az meg eléggé egy abszurd dolog, hogy bár soha nem találkoztunk, mégis többet tudsz rólam és jobban megértesz, mint a családom nagyja meg a kollegáim, akikkel pedig naponta találkozom. Elég nehéz úgy kapcsolatokat építeni, hogy az emberek nem veszik észre, milyen vagyok valójában, amikor pedig rájönnek, akkor meg akarnak változtatni.
Jelenleg az egyetlen aki 100%-ig megért és meghallgatna, az a lakótársam, de amikor majd' minden nap 10-12 órát dolgozik, akkor nem fogom még az én nyűgömmel is fárasztani este. Rajta kívül pedig nincs más, aki odajönne amikor szomorú vagyok, átölelne és megkérdezné, hogy "Mi fáj, drága?"
Szeretnék végre valakit magam mellett, aki része akar lenni az életemnek, aki megért, és akivel beszélgetni is lehet, és nem csak egy cicababát akar, akivel villogni lehet a haverok előtt. Aki nem néz rám értetlenül, amikor a barátaim Azgardiának vagy Azginak hívnak. Valaki, aki okot adna arra, hogy itt akarjak maradni, vagy velem jönne bárhova.

"Kirk always brought the Enterprise back scarred and needing paint, then he blew it up, then got the 'A' blown to pieces, then he took a chunk outta 'B', AND I AM SURE HE DID SOMETHING TO 'C', at least he WON'T be involved in 'D' I know 'D' is going to be OK I know Picard he would not let Kirk do that I know it..."
