Default BSG - Trying a Mercury class. :)

Someone once said, that a 3d modeler building a Connie is like a Jedi building his
first lightsaber. Well, I think I'm going for my Jedi mastery by building a battlestar.

I'm also asking for general advice from those of you, who have build monster ships
like the battlestars, star destroyers, omega destroyer, etc. I know how to UV, and
I'm learning the material tree for several programs. Any advice on painting the mega
ships would be appreciated, even a tutorial about ship materials.

As you can see, the engines are almost complete, and I roughly blocked in the other
sections. Now I'm off to look for even more refs. ^_-
I'm still not back online, so I'll be back the next time I'm at my sister's place, in a few
days.

Eric

The rear section of the ship looks really nice. The modelling looks very smooth and clean.

Yes, TanJ is the Battlestar master. I'd heard he was having some trouble with
another user regarding his models. Wouldn't be that guy from ShareCG, would it?
He has a few of TanJ's battlestars converted to Poser and posted there. He didn't
even get the textures right. <shakes head>

Anyway, I'll try to reach him for advice.

Thanks, Rigel. Glad to see you're still here. Been awhile.
I honestly wasn't sure I could do it, but it looks good, so far.
I'm actually building this for my Imperium Fleet, so there will
be variations from the Mercury class, guns above and below, for
example. I was VERY surprised to find that the Peg was almost
uncovered above, and almost as bad below. Good thing Cylons
are dumb.

I noticed the same thing about the Galactica.
