Well, after many years of unfinished wips, looks like I´ll finish something. :)
I presente you the USS Defender, built in Sketchup and rendered with Yafaray. Still a wip.

Old renderings can be seen at http://www.trekbbs.com, under Fan Art topics. ;)

Well , we could always try a private file render
your model would be safe, and not shared.
But if you want it to remain Exclusive, then i understand.

Congratulations on actually finishing a mesh, it's usually a very long road with many issues along the way :).
Nice!

Well, nothing finished yet, but my shipyards are building a new ship. :D After to correct a lot of mesh errors, I decided it was the time for the first rendering test. Just to see how it is going. There´s still a lot to do, but it don´t turnned out that bad, don´t you think? :)

Not to mention some of the last to keep the STMC somewhat active, which deserves praise :D

Thanks Erik!

Well, the naceles attached to the USS Theodore were just placeholders, cause they weren´t built by me. This changed now, cause I built my own naceles. Intentionally they are a bit different from the naceles of the traditional Ambassador class, just minor things that probably you won´t notice at the first look. In time: they aren´t finished yet.

I wasn´t so happy with the previous impulse engines, so, I changed them. Looks better? I also put some details and colors over the shuttlebay doors.
To see it in full size, right click and press "open in new window". ;)

Painting of the hull was changed a bit. I also added the escape pods and numbered the ship. To understand how to copy move and align a object to a surface in Sketchup was a difficult mission, and it took me a lot of time to do it the right way. But I´m pretty sattisfed in the end, cause I drew just one escape pod and the rest of them were a "copy, move, align" job made in a fast way. :)
