Uss Discovery Work in progress
« on: September 23, 2017, 02:58:59 PM »

found the closest thing there is to an official ortho of the Discovery here: http://trekcore.com/blog/2017/09/first-hallmark-uss-discovery-concept-renderings/

Made a few interesting Discoveries (see what I did there) about the scale. Using the 1 deck thick saucer edge derived from that image of Burnham standing on the saucer, I determined that a Discovery with a deck height of 3.5 meters would be (This might seem crazy) 560 meters long and 480 meters long for a deck height of 3 meters.

This probably will take a while to finish until better images are released.

So, do you remember me
In those moments just before you sleep?
I know you remember me
Swear to me the memory isn't seen
Promise me
That it doesn't make your heart beat
Doesn't make your heart beat

things outlined in gold are my next goal. Finished basic shapes of the Pylons and secondary hull.
So, do you remember me
In those moments just before you sleep?
I know you remember me
Swear to me the memory isn't seen
Promise me
That it doesn't make your heart beat
Doesn't make your heart beat

There are some angles from which the ship looks really good. For some reason your model looks better than the ship as it appears in the series.
