@Hades:
Yes, that lower part is missing. I'm not good with greebles so I'm leaving those exposed machinery parts for the end.

Comparing your model with the side of the original, I think I would have done the same thing (leave it for exposed machinery)

I've been working in the engine section:



Now I have to fill all those "expose machinery" sections... wish me luck.

It's a good start for the engines.  The hooked shape looks very Vasudan-y, and hopefully, the exposed machinery parts will also reflect this.

Keep it up! :yes:

A very nice remake of an already extremely cool ship, and faithful to the original. Excellent work  :yes:

Viel Erfolg für den Rest.

Looks good.

Damn, I can't seem to find anything wrong to say from your work so far.

I feel useless.

Well, if you have a good concept on vasudan machinery, it would be quite usefull.
All I seem to get is a bunch of bubble shapes surrounded by cables... And I don't like it.
Maybe I should go for a more organic look, as in the Hatshepsut's "head" and "rib cage".

Maybe taking a look at the mainhall from the Psamtik?

On the concept art for the Ptah the machinery exposed part is not that evident, seems covered by hull plating:

:v: themselves have proven many times they were able to build and expand upon their own concept arts instead of just outright copying them. Don't consider the concept art as a word of god ; when you have to choose for the HTL ship, you remain closer to the retail model than to the concept art, as only the retail model really reflects the way :v: eventually chose the ship to look like, as opposed to their early concept they built from afterward.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Agreed. The Ptah wouldnt' look as good without exposed machinery in my opinion. It'd be like if the Pegasus had real plating instead of exposed internals.

I agree with Matth here,  :v-old: concepts are just the first stage of model design.
Most of it even looks cartoonish, and I think there was a lot of creative work done to build the models into their final form.
And finally, where is the vasudan hall image? (I mean which vp and filename)

It'll be in one of the retail .vps. sparky_fs2.vp if I remember correctly, under interface. It'll be in a bunch of pieces though I think. Probably easiest to find it if you sort by file size, which should filter out all the buttons and cursors and stuff.

Hmm, this thread is lingering... must put screenshots!

I think I've redone the underside of that top part from scratch 5 times already... :nono:
This time I'm liking it more than the others though...



The inner part of "wings" is yet to be started...

And a little sideview:



(Yeah, I know, missile tubes still not there)
I'll go back to work now.

DAT SHIP.
[16:57] <CommanderDJ> What prompted the decision to split WiH into acts?
[16:58] <battuta> it was long, we wanted to release something
[16:58] <battuta> it felt good to have a target to hit
[17:00] <RangerKarl> not sure if talking about strike mission, or jerking off
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> WUT
[17:00] <CommanderDJ> hahahahaha

I'm loving it Dagger, looking great from a design as well as technical perspective!

However, there's a couple of details that are throwing me off:
- First is the cockpit, in your version it is looking very long, as oposed to the original. The good thing about the original cockpit shape is that it gives the Ptah a sort of agressive "stance", something that IMO gets lost in your interpretation, sadly.
- The gun pods look more triangular in the original (green lines in the attached image). Again, helps with the agressive stance.

Yeah, I know you were waiting for a very nice sig, in which I was quoting some very famous scientist or philosopher... guess what?!? I wont indulge you...

Why, you ask? What, do I look like a Shivan to you?!?
