I'm going to have to say Daedalus class without one of the hangar bays.

I asked for the inspiration. I meant the ship it was based off.


Also, LJS, it's from the top.

Have a screenshot of progress:





Please note that this detailing looks nothing like the detailing on the original ship.

Thanks. But could you do us all a favour and put quoted pictures in spoilers.

Okay, perhaps these pictures will help you guess what it is. By a happy "coincidence", the battleship I was building happened to fit almost exactly with my battle-cruiser, and it looks pretty close to the original front (from the top).

You see! It makes much more sense with engines and a bow!


The Kintobor-class Battlecruiser it is then.

Okay, here's another screenshot of progress on the body:





Any advice on doing practical (apposed to my usual aesthetic) detailing? (I'm looking at you here, Billy).

First off, let me explain that I'm following a model of the ship I'm building more or less closely.

But that said, that honestly looks pretty good to me now. But if you want to try to improve it, I found some pics that might help.

Spoiler:
 

If you want, just do a Google Image search of some form of "greebles" and let those inspire you.

Thank you. That helps... a bit.

The problem with copying the greeble off the original Aurora-class ship is that every picture is different (and my ship isn't an exact replica). I just feel like I've done something wrong with the detail on my ship.

I recommend windows. Seriously My best ship turned out with 5-10 windows.

Bumps, bits, and knobbly things. Comm antennas, gun mounts, escape pods, airlocks, and anything else.

Thanks guys. I'd pretty much had that figured.

I recommend Half Blocks and other Detailing like Fences or maybe Trees.

Trees? Interesting.

Once again, I know to use half blocks. I just don't know how I should use them

Use then for antennas and small detailing, the rest should be regular blocks.

Okay, that's generally the opposite of what I do.

Attention to everyone! I have started to update the OP (finally). I am providing stats and a (hopefully) rich back-story to them. It will take a while.

I invite you to take a look, and offer any advice on how I may improve (including spelling mistakes)

I am aware that the forum converted was was supposed to be " 8 )" into afro . Annoying, ins't it?
