Before I get into this, anyone who knows me will be aware I'm breaking a personal vow with this one ;)
The guncutter class is probably my favorite Federation ship and I've played with redisigns over the years, I've descided to remake and release it because I just don't see it enough in newer mods. I'm going for a smoother, more modern look and will be basing the textures around DJ Curtis' ones. The middle one is something I did last year and the bottom one is what I'm working with now... sort of the same but totally not (if that makes sense). Also I'm considering a 2 nacelle version aswell... also maybe different pods.
As this is my first for those damn feds I'll be looking for some critique here :naughty:
By the way, does anyone know who made it in the first place?
The credits for the Guncutter as I wrote them in for the Federation compilation mod:

Looking really good so far, Achilles.
Yeah, pretty much no critique and gripes from me. Pretty darn good for a "fed" ship =p
I didn't make it!
I definetly see where the newest mesh is moving away from that "i,m a bashed Akira" look. Keep going with that thought process though if you do keep it at 4 necells make them shorter as though things are heavy as hell
thanks dude, though refit is a bit strong, just fixed it up and recolored the pod :P
nacelles are a pain in my ass, I never get them right... Think I'll find a set I like and pretty much rebuild them to fit, Someone else has always done it better before you thought of it right ;)
I used to love the Guncutter and the Nakota in SFC....they were some of my favorite non-cannon ships....
Nice smooth lines thus far certainly gives it a more modern, streamlined look.
I like those smooth lines and how it looks more like it's own ship than a modified Akira.
WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING THERE?! Cant wait to see the textures. I know the mesh isnt done yet, but your talent in texturing is just over the top. and thats what i want to see, now!
"I'll never do a federation mesh". "I hate doing federation meshes". "You'll never see me doing a fed mesh".
Achilles. I'm somewhat disturbed by this. Not so much the mesh, which is up to your usual quality standard so far, But you've commited a travesty to everything non federation that you've built in the past.
That being said, I'll reserve final judgement until its done.
