Here's the Pathfinder Class I've been working on for Convergence. It's obviously not complete, but I might finish it today.

well you are certainly improving, if I reccomend a few things?

firstly the saucer could use more stacks to make it a smoother edge, unless you are going for a tmp look.

the struts that are leaning out to the rear should be made from one piece, or welded together with care.

A poly count should be posted, possibly along with a wire frame shot.

these are just my views, it is comming along nicely. Will you be making a texture or using another?

Since I started the model with the saucer, basing it on a few pictures, I underestimated how many polys to use. It started out okay, but I realized that it came out looking a little too rough. I am considering rebuilding it, but I may leave it as is since I'm just making it for A2. It took me a little while to figure out what you meant with the back of those bars. I actually just put a face on the back of that bar and extruded it. The current poly count is around 890+ polys. I've already got some textures that were aquired when Operative34997 got them from Patric Webber (think that's the guy), who I believe is the head guy at the USS Miranda website.

I like it, obviously it looks very familier to an Akira Saucer but thats what the front of the pathfinder class looks like anyway, there was one on A2files... but that seems to have vanished! As for this one, i agree it does look nice - although i can't see the bridge, but as you said, its not finished yet! I wish i could model :( i have great ideas but no skill! nehow, keep it up! On a side note, i really do hope that Conversion gets done and doesn't take that long, alike 2.5 which took ages and was only released as a Beta (note i do know that 2.5 is being integrated) but i hope this doesn't take all that long. PS: Achillies... and update on that dry dock?

Draconis, if you are refering to the textures I used on the Titan that I did for you, those actually belong to Wicked Zombie, who was kind enough to let me use them. If those are the ones you mean and you wan to use them, you may want to introduce yourself. I think he's part of starfleetcommand3files site.

Actually, I'm using the textures from the Relentless Class which I thought you had borrowed textures for.
