Naaaaah, don't apologize, I'm just happy you're back. We've all missed you. Welcome back! I'm so happy you're here I won't even mention two of the interesting model suggestion/debates that simmered in your absence...at least until later this week.

Hey Adam,

Its good to here from you again, and its awesome to hear about your promotion. looks like the ships are gonna be getting some proper love around now.

Does this mean you can now tell Mr Stahl that yopu need to change the Galaxy deflector dish and secondary hull.lol.

please please, fix the defiant, we have it super imposed to show you whats wrong, nothing major, move the naceles back (see the photos we put up) and the angle of the nose has to be tilted downward, also see photo, not hard right? I think you mistakenly think its down enough looking at it from underneath where the nose connects to the body where it has that nice indent, thats fine and all, but the nose it self needs angling down wards, it wont be defiant, till at least the model is correct, dont worry about any niggling lighting or other texture stuff, the model just needs to be right

thanks.

actually i think before you modify the defiant or move the nacelles back a bit, you should super impose this latest image over the studio model.

The last one super imposed may not have been taken from a direct side view, the ship may have been either turned slightly facing right, therefore showing off more of the aft section to be longer, and the nacelles to be more forward than they are.

looking at this picture i took, after going to a top down view, and then rotating t he camera down while keeping the facing to ensure no movement, it looks more like the studio model in terms of naccelle placement and scale.

However, the nose piece is still glaringly high and that does not been to be angled down, however you look at it, but im not so sure about the naccelle issue.

looking at it further, something is definitely wrong with the nacelles, instead of putting the new pic in nose to nose, or aft to aft, ive positioned it where the front of the nacelle on both meet

maybe the nacelle is too long? maybe the front section of the sto model isnt scaled correctly?

i dont even think so much that the nose is angled down, it just really has a deep curve at the top.

or maybe angling it down on the sto model would fix it, since the actual nose piece appears to have the correct lines and angles.

well im no artist hopefully cpn logan and others can figure it out.

ill say this though, i hope he fixes this iconic starship as the model is completely out of whack, at least the intrepid and galaxy and other iconic ones model looks like the one on the show.
