Hey, do you ever sell your 3d models? I’d love to be able to access some of these.

The Dreadnought looks awesome. I really wanna see your models in a Star Wars Movie.
Lucasfilm should totally hire you!

I know this isn’t exactly a custom design (and can actually be mistaken for an exception to my point), but is it safe to assume that you follow the Anaxes War College System when making your own capital ships? For example, is your Kontos comparable to a frigate or light cruiser in size or firepower?

Between your guidelines re: classification and what I recall of Curtis Saxton’s Technical Commentaries on theforce.net, I find myself relabeling a fair number of so-called ‘cruisers’ (Dreadnaught, Immobilizer, Carrack, etc.) as frigates or corvettes. I suppose Ep 7’s Resurgent class fudges the border ‘tween heavy destroyer & light cruiser, with that questionable-looking open bow possibly qualifying it for a /carrier suffix. Ah, and to answer that earlier question, pretty sure Kontos is a frigate.

agreed! Ive always assumed it was ‘displacement’ tonnage. When I made a system for a custom ship creator website from ages past I added combat roles into it. For example, if your ship was a certain large mass AND had a sizable fighter contingent then it was a Star Destroyer (I imagined Star Destroyer was akin to Aircraft Carrier back the.)

Any plans to do Acclamators after this? Perhaps non-canon Turbulent-classes, more variations on the Nebula (pls!), or even a Victory-I or -II?

I love your work a ton, even when I don’t get answers to the spec questions I ask lol

Are you talking about the Rand Ecliptic/Imperial II class frigate from the Darklighter storyline??

The Hull 721 fanfic duology (second part incomplete, but still a fun read) on stardestroyer.net got me curious enough about space combat-spec Acclamators (a.k.a. the ‘Meridian’ class in-fic) to make this a fine bit of news. I’d be sorely tempted to pare down or delete that aft ‘fin’ fairing & thus expand the engine block a bit.

=) I want a Victory lol. I love them, though their “fins” make em look kinda weird.

First a question…is that hanger large enough to support an Imperial style shuttle with teh tall top wing?

Second…I like the placement of the hanger…well protected as opposed to the large hole in the bottom so Star Destroyers or easy to target side hangers on Mon Cal ships. And I like the shape of the engines.

But if you watch Rebels you see the Sentinel used for just about everything….and it is in the same boat with the tall central fin.

IIRC…in the Season 2 premiere their stolen Sentnel shuttle docks with a a larger ship. Apparently in the show there is an airlock interface on them on the side as well as on the Gozanti. They don’t have the visible docking ring like ont he Falcon or the Ghost…but it is apparently there.

That’s some quality ventral detail & thruster cluster alike. Plus, a hangar deck just deep enough to handle most shuttles & small freighters, albeit not en masse. Don’t suppose those outsized sensor dishes were especially advantageous?

The engines are blocking the rear facing canons. Rendili didn’t think that one through 🙂
