Default Another TOS Vessel

hello,

once again i have dared to model something from a set of schemtaics without asking in advance...

this time a lifeboat - full credit goes to BJ_O

see the schems here: http://www.3dgladiators.com/forums/s...threadid=19624

i allowed myself to change some details, such as the engines and landing gear. overall it is very close to the design.
bj_o, i hope you like and i din't step on your feet with this.

for a little test-animation check here: http://misc.dd3d.de/shiptest.avi
(300k)






on a sidenote: once this is textured i will put together a scene with the Ian shelton and this lifeboat.

c&c welcome

ok, the text looked a little thick, but I guess I can't really see it in detail

No foot stompin' here, X. Looks great! I know you already have, but feel free to take some liberties with the design since it was pretty much a rough sketch.

thanks b.j., i'm glad you like it.

the model is done allready, i won't change anything on it unless i have to (because of errors, or so)

the inside needs some texturing and i want a version of her with textured outside as well (for dirt).
when this is complete the textures of the ian shelton will follow, then a little scene.
and if you don't mind both ships will be released for use afterwards.

i have no idea *g*

they seem to be layed out as small vessels that launch from the shuttlepay. to me it seems like a little shuttle.

perhaps bj can shed some light

Nice job so far. I didn't realize that was a lifeboat; I thought it was the TOS version of either the TMP travel pod, or the TNG Type 15 shuttlepod.

It could also launch them from the yellow and grey "hatches" on the saucer:



Just a thought

the type 15a is very similar to the 15, btw - forgot to say that.

proceed to the next thread for more on the ian shelton and the lifeboat:
