A Marvel in the Darkness by Rob-Caswell A Marvel in the Darkness by Rob-Caswell
COMMANDER: How pleasing to the eye it is. Behold a marvel in the darkness.
CENTURION: You spoke of entrapment.
COMMANDER: Its many particles will obscure their sensing device, Centurion.
ROMULAN: We enter it, Commander.
COMMANDER: Once fully obscured, we will turn suddenly back upon our adversary.
ROMULAN: At last the screen is clear, Commander.
COMMANDER: Clear?
ROMULAN: Our reflection no longer follows us.
COMMANDER: Escape maneuver one, quickly!

He's a sorcerer, that one. He reads the thoughts in my brain. Our fuel supply all but gone and he stays out of reach.

Great image, sir. One of my favourite ship designs.

Brings to mind a Hallmark Holiday Ornament add for the Romulan Warbird (ICK!!! there is that moniker again) In any case the add showed a empty starfield with the caption "Romulan Warbird Shown cloaked"

That sounds GREAT! So is that a 3D model... and do you have any plans to share it as freebie?
Reply
:iconralphmax:
Ralphmax Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, it's a 3D model, drawn in real size, and I can make plans of every single part of it, even of unfolded surfaces, such as the halves of the head.
Sure I can share them as freebie.

It's made in Catia V5 enviroment, yhe same software I used to draw my 3D Daleks, you can see them in my gallery.
Right now I'm finishing the flying saucer of The Invaders, another classic ship.

So is that a proprietary 3D format? Are you able to export or convert it?
