what about makin it kinda look like the blossom of a rose, you get it? with different layers of scale like things and in the middle the engine?! kinda like a mix of armor and heat radiators

but it looks very nice already

by the way, my i ask you something?

im a huge fan of galaxy rangers. and i would like to have their ship in X3 TC. it doesnt look very difficult but never the less im absolutly unable to do it myself.. so if you have some sparetime, could you check it out and maybe just consider it?

Thats actually a good idea, haven been thinking about scrapping the old drive part, maybe some 4-5 long vines/tentacles extending from that rose structure, slightly twisted.

Ah, galaxy rangers... always used to watch those on german tv. Though it's a bit hard to find some blue prints or just simple images of the ships used in that show, but wouldn't mind giving it a try.

another set of pictures including the first ones - there are also some of a bigger ship like a M1

I would say the Ranger ship is the size of an M6

yes something like the split dragon. fast, agil, strong front weaponry, a small doublelaser in the back for rocket/m5 defense

I watched Galaxy Rangers a couple of times back in the days but it wasn't really my thing. The ships in it were great though, and you're off to a great start here!

If I may suggest, the organge-brown hull seems too wide, looks like it should be a little smaller. The wings could be a little longer. Also the edges on the thruster-casing are very sharp, I think they could be a little thicker.

Looks very nice sofar 2B. The nose could be a litle sharper when looking at it from this angle. You might want to concider scrapping the aft-hull and continueing the fronthull (green) to replace it. Would simplify texturing a great deal.

No idea about texturing currently we will need to skype a little more ;).

The interface between front fuse and rear fuse is a mess too, so I think you are right. will go for that in version 2.


Edit:

Version 2 finished :) (poly 9000)
will go on adding details now

What do you mean by "empty"? Enlarging them in total is not possible as they will go through the structure then. Only way woould be to change the nozzle. Anyhow there will be the engine trail effect in front of the engine so they are covered partly. The front end of the engine is anyway not original cause I have filled it with some sort of turbine, while the original is totaly empty.
