if you look in this image there is a little figure in the bridge - and the scale you have appear to match up quite well, so good job there.


Thank you emoticon

That said, you have a very smooth slightly curved nose cone, where the studio model appears to be a straight cone shape.



The salon pod is an area I've been thinking about revising again. I would say it's a straight-ish cone. Interestingly the top and side views in the TCW image look a little different, with the dorsal/ventral views seeming a little more curved than the side views. The dorsal/ventral curvature matches up pretty well with the semi-official blueprint from my previous post.

Regardless, I'll play around with flattening out the salon pod shape a little and see what I can come up with.

Also, the bridge vertical line appears to be at a slight angle outward as it goes up towards the bridge windows, and the lip under the bridge in front of the cone is also at an angle.



You're right, I had noticed that as well, particularly in this image. I'll see what I can do.

Edit: Adding my previous post to this one, since the page break makes it easy to get lost.

I appreciate the effort emoticon

However, I've had both these sites bookmarked for a while. To spare further duplication of effort, I'll share the other sources I'm using.

Aside from the two galleries above and the Flickr album I linked to earlier in the thread, there isn't much. There is this schematic which I referred to above as the sort of official schematic I found which is just an accurate-seeming ventral view and a so-so head-on view. Otherwise, I'm using this image from the TCW concept art gallery for the episode "Ambush." There is one other image I'll have to upload to share, which is a decent port side view of the studio model with relatively minimal distortion, although unfortunately the original image is quite low resolution.

Re: Consular-Class Cruiser


cool. Glad I can help. you appear to be using mostly good reference material then.

Although, concept art work usually differs from the final release version in many ways - usually subtle.

I would strongly recommend that you focus on using the actual studio model images as reference material for the stock version and then concept material for any variants.

Keep up the great work man!

Hey Challenger0414,

I realize that you are probably busy with life in general, but I was wondering if you had anything more going with this project. I would love to see it.

Indeed, the last two months have been...something. Maybe I'll have more spare time soon, I'm hoping for a job offer and in my experience the first month or two at a new (office) job have always been slow.

I don't have any substantial updates to share since the end of July. I started sketching out the landing gear and played around with flattening out the salon pod cone, but that's about it. The aft section between the center engine and the reactor housing had me stymied anyway, though hopefully coming back to it after letting it sit for a while will have positive results.

In the meantime, I did start a draft of the Eta-class shuttle from TCW, though it's been over a month since I touched that too, and Squadrons has me feeling a little inspired to pick up my TIE fighter (and others) project again at a larger scale. So...hopefully soon I'll have something of some sort to share again. emoticon

That's cool, I totally understand. Please don't feel obligated to rush. I think we all understand that this is not a job, it's supposed to be fun and relaxing. emoticon

Squadrons is a great game, if you are on PS4, my PSN ID is 'The_Other_Lucas'. It is a cross play game, so it shouldn't be too hard to hook up a match, bearing timezones and freetime and such. emoticon I'm actually still playing through the campaign - slowly, I'm trying to savour it. I hope that motive put in a photo mode, it is gorgeous.
