Talking SciFi - Ships of the U.E.G.

Thought I'd get around to rebuilding some of my original ship designs.
The first ship I decided to start on is the M'Aangan fighter.

The history is kind of rough at the moment.
The M'Aangan race is the first exra-terrestrial life form encountered by the Human race. This encounter took place a few years after the Explorer class ship Christopher Columbuswas thought lost to an explosion. This explosion, instead of destroying the Columbus opened a hole in space and sucked the Columbus into M'Aangan occupied terratory.
After floating nearly dead in space for 18 months a M'Aangan freighter found the ship and towed it back to the nearest inhabited world. Over several months the crew of the Columbus, still kept alive by their failing cryotubes are revived and their ship repared with the addition of Earths first FTL drive. This drive will become known as a jump engine.
The first use of this Jump engine will return the Columbus and her crew to Earth escorted by two Ships of the Royal M'Aangan Navy. Shortly after these incidents the United Earth Government is formed and the M'Aangan become it's greatest ally.

The M'Aangan are a humanoid race. The males are an average height of 8 feet and the females are an average height of 7 feet. Both sexes have deep blue eyes and long black hair, the males keep there hair tied back. They are considered beautiful by many but this could be caused by a pheromone that adjusts to whatever race might be near. They have a very limited control over this pheromone and it is not sex specific. Meaning a male pheromone
can effect either male or female of another race. One of the few known races that this has no effect on is the Sckrow, a small reptilian race. Because of this the Sckrow hate the M'Aangan.

Normaly a very open race who freely gives it technology to other races. The one thing unknown about their technology is their fighter craft. Pilots for these fighters have never been seen. This leads many to believe that the ships are piloted by remote or have a biolagical brain that is grown within the ship. These fighters have no FTL drive but when needed several of these fighters can be attached to an external FTL drive. This device is called the death blossom. These ships normaly work in groups of five or more.
The weapon systems of thses ships can be slaved together to hit a single target. One ship will move forward of the rest and paint a target. All other ships will lock to this target automaticly. This can effectivly keep the other ships at a safe enough distance while fireing. This can also be used for recon by sending the intelligence to the support craft.

The first four pics are of the original ship.

I like this design. It looks like it could become part of a larger ship. Almost like a flying turret.

Maybe you can throw your Cloverfield lice on top of it.

UPDATE...
I don't know how much will be actually updated or changed. I just think over the last few years I've learned a few more things and can do a better job on the ship. Even with textures I think with what I know now that will be the biggest improvement.
I wanted to add more to the engine than I had before.
the third pic is just an engine effects test.

Nice design, very unique.

Where does it keep the fuel?

Always a fan of your designs.. glad you included a human figure for scale... my guess just based on the first render(s) would have been way off

This is pretty cool, it reminds me of the bike thing that Grievous rides in SW ep 3. That was a nice design so I'm looking forward to seeing where you take this one.

Have you ever seen the real self-propelled wheel? I've seen the film around from time to time; looks like it was done in the 1950's or 1960's.

I saw the vids of the newer one and it was pretty much uncontrollable. Stopping and staying upright was the biggest problem it seems.

Well I started to rebuild another of my old ships for a contest over at 3D Gladiators and since it belogs to this universe I might as well post here. It's a crago ship. I know Mikala has seen it.
It was first used to help colonize the moon but was also later used to help colonize Mars. Since being decommisioned the ship has become a collectors item. Some owners still run cargo but for most it's become an RV and once a year owners gather around the moon like some owners of classic cars will do and show off paint jobs and special modifications.

The owners who do run cargo will do what they call "pushing the train" by running as many containers as they can. An extra set of booster engines can be set every six containers.

Nice ship but I also like that there is a back story to it. That is a really cool idea that they became RV's. Sorta like the jetstream trailer clubs now.

Thank you. I forgot all about the Jetstreams, but you're exactly right.

UPDATE...
Here's a little bit more work done. Unfortunately the drain in my laundry room backed up so I spent most of the night cleaning it up.
I added an airlock to the front and back cargo container. I haven't gotten around to doing the main entrance of the containers yet but the first and last ones are perminately sealed anyway. These containers also have the landing thrusters attached to them.

Very nice designs, and excellent modeling! I also really like your WIP renders... are they AO renders or something else?

Looking forward to seeing more!

looking really nice One thing though, i think the arms holding the engines just look a little flimsy to me, like the engines would tear themselves off at full power??

Just a thought

Not to mention they could break off while entering or exiting the atmosphere.
I made them thin on purpose. I want the ship to look like it might be dangerous to fly. Your average everyday pilot wouldn't fly it.

UPDATE...
Did a bunch of work on the back part. One of the things I added was a third hatch. I also added a bunch of nav lights and finished off the liquids cargo container. I also added some details to the bottom of the containers because they where a little bland before. The added second set of engines are just a test to see if the smaller booster rockets will work. Building the booster connections and getting rid of a few polygons should finish off the work I'm doing. For now.

UPDATE...
I know this isn't exactly a ship but I decided to do a water based station/city. Most of it will be below the surface. Just blocked in for now but it should give an idea about how it will look.

The other pics show some minor details. I added a dish and a few antennas to the top of the ship.
I hope to finish this for the contest tonight.

This ship is finished for the contest at 3DG.
It's not at it's optimal config but does show all the needed bits.
Eventually I will do textures and interiors. But that will be for myself.

This is just a little test to see how the cities would look. Also a little loook at the new earth map I'm working on.
