This week I have re-modelled the Saucer and Secondary hull, I have started to add details with the second deck, and the raised section that runs down the spin of the Saucer section.
No major changes to the Saucer I just reworked the section that meets with the secondary hull and plan to work on this section next with details.
With the Secondary Hull the top half is still the same but I have now re-modelled the lower half giving it a slight curve towards the back when looking from the side. I also cleaned a bunch of vectors so that it will be easier to work with when it comes time to start cutting in windows and adding details.
The major work was done to the second deck and the raised section that runs down to spin of the saucer. This I fully re-modelled and adding lots of details.
Windows have been cut in and a small airlock for crew to get out and about when needing to do repairs on the outside of the ship is on one side. Not to happy with the front windows on the second deck at the front, I was going for something in a similar style to Madkoifish, but I would say that I failed at this big time. So will need to take another look at that.
I have added a four lifeboats and hull panels. (I plan to build the lifeboats at a later date and use them for a picture I got in mind.)
I worked out that lifeboats can hold 8 but this can be pushed up to 12.
Towards the back half of the spin is a section that sticks out with a bunch of windows looking out the back of the ship and one large window on top. I see this as being the ship “Ten Forward” area of the ship.
