Just a little size comparison between my ship and FD Vexor by Steve-O (EDIT: Vexor's author added...)

The ship outline reminds me quite a bit of a fighter, but its design is different enough to distance itself from that. Very well done. c:

that is the most brilliant abuse of latin i have ever seen
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

I agree. Though, I'm glad most impressionable kids don't know Latin; or this site for that matter. :D Vidi would be the better use of Latin.

 
Well, we can make a good compromise through inverting the classic chronological sequence: vidi - veni... :D

...I hate you... :lol:.

Nah that ship's looking lovely man; very original design, yet I could see it fitting in with other Federation ships quite well (especially the Sanctus). Not sure on those long 'wings' either side (i'd maybe shorten them a little) but that'd just be personal aesthetic; it looks gorgeous all over; you use a few detail elements really well on this. That beam emitter looked bloody good btw (you had close-ups on a previous page). :yes:

Assuming that Vexor (which looks gorgeous!) is yours too. Nice.  :yes:

Ah that's still the original/a remake by Steve-O himself. Kudos to him for that one then; assumed it a remake by Arrow; pardon confusion.

Frigate still gorgeous though Arrow :yes:

EDIT: Why am I suddenly thinking of the Imperial March theme looking at the frigate :lol:.

(And O/T: Yes to the 'Veni' picture...just yes...)

Thank you T-man! Steve-O is a great modeller and I took a lot of inspiration from his work. I like thinking of my ship as Vexor's little brother, if I may say so. Though I think that Vexor is a mature model. Steve-O must have had well clear in mind where he wanted to get, even before he started modelling; whereas I changed so many things from the beginning, that I can say that I would have gotten to the point I am now in half the time otherwise...

Do you think you could also give it Steve-O-style textures? This is quite a unique scheme, but unfortunately, there's only a few ships that follow it. Esarai, on the other hand, has numerous imitators, and Scooby Doo made enough ships in his style to last the community a lifetime. I like having a consistent look across the fleet, not to mention this style lends itself to team colors.

 
Well, I was thinking of something different for the textures. This is supposed to be a secret stealth ship, so it should feature some kind of particular coating, e.g. radar absorbing. I may try to "stealthify" a UEF styled texture, but I need to learn how textures work first (it will be my first attempt to texture something!  :D).

I would waaaaaay rather see 'whitearrow' style textures than 'whitearrow-copycat-Steve-O' style.

Or, more accurately.. I'd rather see whitearrow develop his own creativity than to be limited to copying someone else's style.

I love the design of this ship. Bonus points on the first page for immediately making me think of the Eclipse SSD.

Fantastic. :D

I get it!
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

 
little UPDATE:
I tried to add some gribbles at midship. That kind of hears you can see there are part of the electronic warfare equipment... check p3d window.
Let me know if you find it plausible...
