    awhile back, I had started messing around with Google Sketchup 8, and started designing a "Deep Space Exploration Vessel". I have been sharing pics of the design as it has evolved on another Forum, but would like to share with you all. Any ideas, insight, critism (good and Bad) is completely welcome.

    I do apologize for the amount of pictures, but I HAVE been working on this for a few weeks, and would like to get you guys caught up properly :) enjoy

    Hey Rick!! Nice to see you bring this work of art here! It will be a pleasure to see this come along. To any other members who might not know, this is Rick's creation, an original work. A pleasure to watch. I hope you post all the directions you explore with this. It has been fun watching the different paths you have been exploring with her, (Inspired, sounds like a "her" to me). :):thumb:

    So this is where I stand right now on the design. I plunk away here and there, and as you can see, the ship has evolved alot from its initial concept. You may have noticed that I'll go along a partiular path, then abruptly erase and redo a section. this is nothing more than the sporadic undecided mind of an Irishman without his little Dragonfly to sooth him.

    Like I said, any thoughts, ideas, likes, dislikes, critism, good and bad. all is welcome. Now that i've gotten you all caught up, i'll be posting updated pics of the design as I continue my work. :)

    Very interesting looks like a revised, updated ship from The Blackhole. Can't remember the name at the time.:thumb:
