That... is... absolutely AWESOME! I feel like, this is what the Argo was asking to be in pure-blood form, a UNSC warship. (As opposed to the excellent blended sci-fi feel of the original) 

I'm REALLY enjoying seeing your refits of various ships... the level of detail, and yet simple streamlining, that you put into them is spectacular!

As Dino (sorta) said, I feel this is how the design of the Argo was meant to feel: slick, streamlined, smooth, yet retaining the classic industrial feel of your typical UNSC ship. I'm really lovin' the new nacelles, turrets, and the overall aesthetic. My only issue I can see with it is that the bridge area (if it even still is a bridge Razz) seems rather plain. While this perhaps flows with the overall design a bit more, it still seems a bit off to me. =/

Still, great work as always!

Nice! As to its blankness (which unfortunately does show a lot more than the Banshee), I personally think it might benefit from some long, thin "greebling" on the surface, probably using different rods and stuff mostly. Maybe a few small blocky-ish structures as well.

...Basically like this, which you'll presumably be pretty familiar with. Razz http://angryjanitor.com/wp-content/uploads/daedalus_mirko38_1024x768.jpg

But yeah, that's my best advice. Also, I think it might benefit from not being quite so thin, perhaps.

Yeah, the bridge is pretty plain, other than that, I love it! I especially like the new sublight engines at the back compared to the Argo's.

Ok... so you did an excellent job of making something I made look like something I didn't make while at the same time looking like something I made.

Wow. From now on when I build a ship, I'm going to send it to you before I upload it and have you refit it. Razz


I must agree though, this has a lot of blank space on it, I think primarily due to the fact that you used a solid color. Where this ship really excels is in the rear section of the ships where you have made marked improvements. The impulse and warp drives both look excellent, and I'm actually thinking about refitting the ship using some of your techniques with a spin of my own style to perfect the Argo.

I might add a little more greebling, but I suggest keeping it minimal as this ship feels like it should be smooth. The bridge could use a little more detail for sure.
