Wasn't really planning on joining another comp but since modeling is usually what I do the quickest, I figured I'd enter. Gotta come up with a design though.

Initial concept. My thought is something that not only travels through space super fast but also through the air. No guns or anything like that. It's sole purpose is super fast traveling. I'm naming it Star Streaker. Hopefully the design is not too simple.

Lol, looking at it again, it reminds me of a Star Trek com badge. That's not how I got the design though btw .

Bullets right, a simple design is just as good as a complex one just as long as it looks like it can get up and go.

Looking foward to seeing what you do with it!

Thanks CGWolfgang and bullet1968. I thought I was going to get up and go with this project but trying to come up with the details isn't as easy as I was hoping. As soon as I figure out how I want to add details, I'll start posting some more progress. Currently, every detail design I come up with I end up changing it, and changing it, and changing it, lol. I think I'm being too much of a perfectionist and should just stick with the first detail design that seems to work for me.

Nice simple ship Perfecto. I recommended giving it a panel texture, like the old World War 2 flying fortresses had.

Played around with the bottom design some. No need to coment on the gap size since I'm not 100% sure how big I want the ship to be yet.

Most of it is modeled, some of it is a temporary bump just so I can see how it's looking. Eventually I'll redo the bump to make it look more realistic because the current one was quickly done with no real precision. Still looks pretty good though I think.
