I think there is WAY too much going on in these greebles. It looks moldy! It's like a flying coral extrusion! Or some kind of chunk snapped off a Gothic cathedral.
If I put my eye on a random point on that ship it has NO idea where to go. It follows a panel line around in loops, or grabs a circuit board or radiator shape and just follows the lines out into space.
I literally — this is not hyperbole, I swear — I cannot focus on any particular part of the model. My eye fastens to a greeble within that part, gets exhausted trying to pick it out, and falls off the image.
In my strong opinion you want the details and greebles on a model to echo and reinforce the larger shapes, to lead the eye smoothly around the model so you see it all and come away with an image of one coherent, clear, intentional design. For example:
Here's the good ol Millenium Falcon, a ship so greebled it's described as a piece of junk.
But check out how the greebles are carefully thought out and arranged.
The panel lines on the cockpit access tube are semicircular and echo the shape of the tube.
The circuit/pipe details on the hull all lead inward to the center, like spokes radiating from a hub.
The tiny greebles along the sides of the front prongs run WITH the length of the prong, not ACROSS it, so your eye follows the general shape.
The long pipes on the central-forward panel, leading down to the prong cutout, all run WITH the length of that panel to echo and reinforce its shape.
The engine area is detailed with round black "outlets" or whatever they are, but they are grouped carefully into a wedge-shape which ALSO points inward to the center of the ship.
The overall shape is very clear: a disc with a pointy front and a T-shape embedded in it. Every smaller detail echoes and reinforces these larger shapes!
By contrast look at the wings of the Herc 3 model. There are all these lines firing my eye off into space. There are curves taking big 90 degree angles and blocking my eye from moving further down the wing. There are like 5 different colors I can see — green, grey, yellow, blue and red. It's too much. Maybe I have a smooth visual cortex but I just cannot figure out what the **** is going on. I can't imagine a maintenance guy replacing one of these components, or armor protecting any of them. There's little fins sticking out of the bottom, which pulls my eyes down, then sideways lines ON the fins to shoot my eyes off to the side! Everything is covered in EVERYTHING.
Technically, it's flawless. But I strongly feel the panel and greeble design needs to be structured better. There's no intermediate structure, no organizing principle between "the ship's outline" and "tiny detail noise."
