Homeworld Expanded Universe Space Pirate Attack Frigate Ship
About this creation
This is a Pirate attack frigate from my homewoorld expanded universe theme...The chssis is inspired by Tim Z's amazing space works but i have modified it and replaced his missile equipment with my old style vertical twin medium autocannon turret (that has new rotation system) and placed 8 missile tubes on the side of the ship just befor the small reaction mass...This Ship also sets a new set of conventions for me that i had been thinking about for a while... email me if interested.
i realize this is the only pic that shows the 8 missile tubes...these are short range "smart" missiles... they divide (or not) into smaller explosive particules (like flak guns) when targetted at fighters and stay as one big explosive on bigger targets
This new sizes luckily fit the Scor destroyer...The pirate battle carrier is a bit bigger than a destroyer but can only carry fighters and corvettes...thos it is wayyy more powerful than a regumar carrier...
To the MOCpages community, and Pierre: I send out a apology. I simply chose to act with malicious impulse, and I would like to redeem myself. If you all deem it necessary...I will terminate my account on MOCpages, and Matt Black will be no more. Again, I apologize, and wish that I could take that back. Pierre, if you want to delete my comment, I wouldn't blame you. Have a nice day!
I second the previous opinions on color scheme.
The problem with the flash is that it's mono-directional, promoting glare and lowering contrast. you'll need some brighter lights coming in from a few angles.
Good job. This appears to be a very well engineered vessel (heavily inspired or not). If I may make a suggestion though, it seems to me that the ship might look better if you flipped the frontal orange section so that the long section is on "top," but you may disagree. However, other than that this model is pretty good, and certainly has the striking outline I would expect a ship like this to have. In all, very well designed and implemented.
Ah, no flash! Crank up the ambient natural light, avoid flash whenever possible.
Yay for torpedoes! I like the solidified colour scheme,adds interest to what might otherwise be a bit of a boring shape (not a downside, a spaceship shouldn't be too crazy).
Yes to the flash. Pierre, you are an excellent artist. I've been trying to build something along the same lines as what you are doing but I can't seem to get anything I like, however I did make something in the LDD program, I might put up pictures of it sometime, so check out my site periodically if you get a chance too. Keep up the great work.
