Certainly. They have to be pretty big to get any sense of scale or detail, so I'm going to link them instead of posting the images.
Starboard side, Before
. All the detail in the curved parts behind the fighterbay was lost with the original mapping.
Port side, Before
. I tried to follow the 'Rule of Four' when mapping this; there were so many individual modules that I mapped them with varying textures..
Antenna array, Before
. I'm particularly proud of the job I did on these.
Poop Deck, Before
. Note the new radar dishes, using fewer polies than Bobboau's.
Aft engine block, Before
. I think I did a much better job on the engines themselves, and used the capital01-01a texture to accentuate the rounded end of the extrusion edged with lights.
Overall I'm very happy with it. Bobboau's model did the Orion justice scale-wise, I'm only trying to carry that over to the texturing. Huge thanks to him for doing this in the first place. Thanks to Styxx, too, for his MAX converter and support.
