USS Skater WIP

on Thu Mar 12, 2015 3:15 pm
So here are some pics of my USS Skater Work In Progress ship, for all you who where on the chat trying to help me pick colors. Razz

Spoiler:
















For all you who don't know what this is, this is supposed to look really sporty and nice, it's not supposed to be a typical dull colored ship like all the others. Razz

Suggestions and comments and etcetera are encouraged, on both colors and build.

Hm, I like the dark blue/dark green palette best, I think. If you were to add a dash of silver in there it would be ten times better! Very Happy As far as the actual ship... well, it's certainly unique. Razz The pegs connecting the nacelles to the saucer are too small, in my opinion. Interesting idea, though! I'm curious about how this thing will turn out.

I really like the gray ones, especially the one with the light pink and the one with the aqua, and the one with the light blue.  The creamish colored one looks pretty sweet too.  (I think it's cream at least.  It could be white, I'm not sure.)

Honestly... I really like the design of the ship, while I do think the nacelle pylons are too long, I think overall it captured the design you were going for.

I think it would look really cool with something like this at the rear.

(Big picture)
Spoiler:

Oh, and make the struts to the spoiler and the spoiler itself a little shorter.  (And maybe not such an angle, try to make it a smaller angle, closer to a 90 degrees, but obviously not right at 90.)  Use the tall slope pieces the ones that are like three bricks tall.

Yeah... except without the back slant. It'd look pretty cool with that actually.

Well I can't get a consensus on color scheme, but I think I'll take your advice about that back slant.....

I'm not sure what I'll do about the colors, nacelle strut length, other stuff yet. Razz

I think shortening the pylons by just two of those tubes would do the trick.

Might I suggest dark red with orange/dark yellow stripes, and silver accents?
