Default SciFi - Robert McCall Class Ship

I am a fan of Robert McCall designs,, they are always interesting so I built one and did my own thing with it.

Fictional details

Scale:
Length: 1174'11"Ft or 358.Meters
Height: 309'7" Ft or 94. Meters
Width: 315'11" Ft or 96. Meters
Crew Compliment: 86 as Standard for 3 years
Normal Space Transit Speed: 30% the speed of light


Fantasy part: (As if the rest is not)

I like the idea of fold-space as described in the book series ANTARES DAWN by Michael McCollum where you can fold-space only to star systems connected by fold-points and fold-lines.

So while the nearest planet to our Sol System is Alpha Centauri (Proxima Centauri)at 4.22 light years distance. But if Proxima Centauri does not have a fold-point and say Epsilon Eridani at 10.52 Lightyears does, then in terms of travel time Epsilon Eridani is closer.

Its an idea I like.

That's a good interpretation of the painting.

Have you tried matching the angle of the painting? Something about the orange ball looks off to me.

I took a few liberties with the design adjusted a few areas.

Robert McCall daughter Catherine liked my adaptation of the design which made my day

This is the closest angle I ever did as a test render. I made changes to some of the sections orientation.
but I hoped to keep the intent of the design intact
