That's a really unusual design. I like parts of it really well but not sure what I think of it as a whole. The modeling looks good though.

I like it but the quantity of engines on the back seem kind of OTT to me.
Sort of as if the designers of the vessel could not make a more efficient engine and had to strap a lot of these on. If there is a reason for it hey don't mind me. Strictly an observation is all.

Very unusual design; lots of engines and LOTS of guns!

It will be interesting to see what else you have in your fleet.

Just wanted to say thanks for all the Comments and yeah it has a lot of engines and a lot of guns think of this ship as the troll of space combat... a beast that you wouldn't want to go up against without some serious backup.
Today I worked on the bottom of the ship There is a picture of the old and new side by side The old behind the new, it shows what I've done better than my words could.

Hey Another ship just to break away for a while. I have been trying to figure out hull plating for this ship but haven't found much luck on a smooth hull so just wondering if any one knew of a technique that worked well?

this is the Kasna Victory class Destroyer.

Started to experiment with plating the hull, I think it is working out ok, giving it some texture to break up the smoothness.

The class-0 is the all purpose warship of the planetary empire, a force that has risen to wrest control away from the kasna republik. The ship has a very large hangar bay to carry all of the support craft and a large contingent of fighters, it runs a power plant that has roughly the energy output of a dwarf star. and is able to run on its own without stopping for 100 years. making it a very durable and multipurpose Destroyer.

Been a while, I have worked on the hangar bay for the Aurora that is the Aircraft carrier type thing. and built on a corvette in the same design philosophy.

The Noma is a warship built by the Rakee, the ships frame is built around a massive central gun with three arms sprouting from it holding the Crew and Hangar Bays. The moma measures 700 M long and houses thousands, a City in space capable of holding its own against almost any foe.

Nicely detailed. Just the right amount for the size of it.

Thanks Bill I still have some patches to finish but I have finished the preliminary build, I guess I should Try to texture this bad boy, never really tried to do that in earnest, but I guess now is as good a time as any, or perhaps better for some reason...

Re concept of the victory class again,

I like the design.

But is it me... but does it look like the Draconian fighters from Buck Rogers ('80s).

A little; but imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
